the most praised generation of students ever

"The Most Praised Generation Goes to Work: Uber-stroked kids are reaching adulthood -- and now their bosses (and spouses) have to deal with them."

That's the title of an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal on April 20, 2007.  You can access it at:

If you wade through it, you will eventually come to some comments by attorneys.  The article doesn't say what happens when this generation, over-praised throughout life and now apparently at some law firms, meets the reality of our adversarial judicial system.  In court, usually someone loses and someone wins.  Clients and judges don't give A's for effort.
