    Re: in or at

    Hi,

    It's usual to associate 'at' with 'last'.

    'In last' is nowhere near as common and would only be used for instance when you said something quite specific like (referring to a race), 'Mary came in last'.

    Regards

    Thank you for this question. It reminded me that I wanted to buy Etta James's At Last for my iPod.

    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.
