    Default In/at all cases?!

    Which one is correct, to say:

    In all cases, I'll do it.

    Or

    at all cases, I'll do it.

    Default Re: In/at all cases?!

    It would be "in" not "at" but can you say what you're trying to say? It's possible another phrase would be more natural in your sentence.

    For example: I'll do it no matter what. Come what may, I will do it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I think :

    I'll do it no matter what will do.

    But I relly need more formal alternatives, so can these work well:

    I'll do it at any cost.

    // // // at all costs.

    // // // whatever happens.

    // // // whatever the consequences are.

    ______________________________________

    There is also this situation and I want to know what is the best alternative for anyway here because I've used it many times before:

    George, "I'm going to dedicate an extra hour to studying, Father."

    Jane, ( George's sister)" You have to study anyway."

    Thanks indeed.
