    Wow! Your sis has pretty strong nails!

    Anyway, your remedies can be putting a plastic screen protector on the screen to hopefully reduce the scratch's effect or replace the screen entirely. Replacing the screen might be very costly since they'll replace the whole top part of the MacBook.

    Yup, best course of action is to buy a screen protector and hopefully it will cover the scratch...
    You can buy the cheap ones for cameras and "test" to see if it "vanishes" those cost sub P100 or even cellphone shields just to see what happens...As i think actual screen protectors run in the P500+ range this would be a better alternative since, i don't think a reseller of those things would allow you to "test" them on your laptop...

    Another option would to try and see if it would "slip-tru" Apple warranty...if you still have it though...

    Which model of Macbook is this? Is this the plastic white/black Macbook or is it the Unibody? Because I'm pretty sure it will take more then human nails to scratch the glass screen of the unibody.

    Wow, it was that deep? There's no remedy for that sadly unless you have the LCD replaced. You can also try screen protectors like what they said.

    If it's under warranty, that won't be covered since it's user damage :(
