This package fixes a grammar mistake in the "Made Dean's List" University memory. Instead of reading "What a achievement..." it will now correctly read "What an achievement...".
I know this has been bugging a lot of people.

Please don't upload elsewhere. Thanks.

Ooh, little fixes like this rock. :D

I think it's kind of ironic that the memory about the DEANS LIST should be the one that is grammatically incorrect. :p

I always found it deliciously ironic, and it usually made my day with a little social commentary about the state of our education. But it most likely was just a typo. Still, I think I'll keep it. Thanks anyway!

Thanks to those of you who have thanked me and to those who think it was a waste of time: stuff off! This took me about 15 minutes to make and was for my own use. I uploaded it because I've seen other people complain about it.

I was only poking fun at your original spelling of "grammar".
I think Its great when anyone spends any time on anything and wishes to share.
never a waste of time!

This won't effect the other mods in the game, will it? Mail me if you answer.

Thank you. Bad grammar and spelling tends to lower the tone of any mode of communication. I have noticed a few more in the game but cannot think of them offhand.

I'm not really sure. I know its an American term. According to Wikipedia its a term used to refer to a catagory of students with the highest grades.

Isn't school supposed to teach you to use good grammar?
That bugged me so much, too. I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and my mom always taught me to use good grammar. Every time I saw that I wanted to pull my hair out! Thank you so much for making this, I will dowload it right now
