Incoming 1Ls / Our "competitive spirits"
« on: April 30, 2005, 11:49:44 PM »
OK. . . .so it's like this, law school breeds a sense of competitiveness, one that pitts student against student knowing that law school grades are a zero sum grade, for you to do better, someone has to do worse.

So I'm wondering, what are your plans for avioding the trap of one-upmanship?

Personally, I see law school as a competition against yourself, one that pushes you to learn the material and be the best that you can be. It would be interesting to know how people feel about this issue. Personally, I plan to aviod it alltogether, not indulging in any sort of who's better bs. I wonder what previous 1l's have to say about this as well as pre-1l's. I plan to kick ass and take names just on my own, I could give a damn what someone else does. . . .just keep that smug look on my face until exam time, and then let the grades speak for themselves. . . .
