General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Georgetown Class of 2009
« on: May 04, 2006, 01:21:03 PM »
anyone got a feel for the whole 'GULC being super competitve' thing?

class of 09.

i think most of the discussions about how competitive it is are ridiculous.  none of the students i have talked to have complained about the general atmosphere.  people share notes, help others, etc.  of course there are hyper-competitive people in the mix, but i'm sure that's the case everywhere.  i think people just latch onto rumors and inflate them without adequate knowledge of what's really going on.  if you look at the student satisfaction surveys, gulc students are pretty happy compared to students at other schools.   if it was a super-competitive atmosphere, it seems like this satisfaction would diminish.  i could be naive, but i think the competitiveness is overblown.   

180.

Look at my rants about why I hated my UG.  I was specifically looking for competitiveness when I was checking out law schools, and I didn't find much at Georgetown.

I think it's mostly a result of Xoxo posts about the need for prestige.

LSD = useful advise and information
xoxo = amusing bi*tch fights

However, if you are trying to be funny, then you are just coming off looking like an a-hole.  I'm sorry, but I will be unable to help you with that one. 

what's up your a*ss? has it occured to you that maybe nobody gives a shi*t about proper writing on internet forums? you are the only one looking like an 'a-hole' here.

GULC requires new 1Ls to wear only their underwear.

i've been looking for some martial arts training places within 15min of the school. anyone know anything?

Nope.  Do you really think you'll have time?


it's a lifetime commitment for me. i mean hell i wrote about it in my PS... i think people get waaaay too worked up about the time thing. is setting 3-4 hours A WEEK clearing my head, getting some excersie, getting out some aggression and doing something i love really such a crime at t14?

i am commited to NOT selling my soul.

Not to sh!t in your corn flakes :), but there's a better survey of associates at www.law.com

I just came across this survey online, and I decided to post it because I thought some people might think it was interesting.  Apparently, they do.  I'm sure there are other surveys out there.  Its not like I'm upset or shocked to hear that there is a 'better' survey at law.com.  Its not like it was my goal to post the best survey possible, ever, in the whole entire history of lawyer satisfaction surveys... 

sh*t in my cornflakes?  What the @#!* kind of response is this?  This is a prime example of law students being socially inept...

Its like someone giving you a piece of candy... and you saying, "Not to sh*t in your cornflakes buddy, but there's better candy out there..."


ummmmm candy from strangers... yum..


very good site. thank you.

I don't know of any law schools that are out of the mainstream.

Pepperdine?

That's one I was thinking of as well....

When I submitted my app, I had to write an additional essay on how my christian beliefs and values would guide me through law school and my legal career...

How did that go?

I kind of BS'ed it to be honest...I said something about how, despite the competitve nature of law school, I would never compromise my morals to get ahead (like I would never cheat, plagarize etc).

omg... christian values? do you really think you are in for a diverse educational experience if your school requires that for entrance?

its the school's choice to exclude non christians (i'm assuming its a private) still i find it unsavory that they activly exclud people based on belief.
