ok, ok..lets calm down now. im just stating an of the functions of a message board. im not obessessed with people saying not forming an "anti LIKE" student association. im just making an observation and offering an opinion. as far as "hating" overzealous lawyer wannabes...please show me where i said that. i never used the word hate...thats a strong word. i agree with hammer that this is a profession where being articulate is crucial. could a 3' tall, 40lb. midget be a cop? no...its a profession where physical strength and stamina are important. perhaps its a strong example, but it illustrates my point. lets all be nice and unite against the people who overuse LIKE. :-)

my aggaravation has nothing to do with "talking like a lawyer on your first day of law school". the people who think they are johnny cochran incarnated are annoying too. if i worked at mcdonalds and people talked that way, it would annoy me. even as an undergraduate in a social is STILL annoying. the overuse of LIKES is just CONCENTRATED in law school, for whatever reason. it is worse than my undergraduate school. it is an ignorant and irritating way of communicated, irregardless of its location.

The LIKES are in the classroom and are used in socratic method exercises. the epidemic is also spreading to guys in the classroom, as well. my roommate said she has been using LIKE more often b.c a girl that sits next to her says it constantly and it is rubbing off on her. i told her i will buy a cattle prod and stick her everytime she says LIKE. she admits that it is annoying sounding, but she said she does it without realizing it. you think these people would realize how stupid they sound.

Kentucky Hammer"

Then there's the girls who use "like" between every word in a sentence.

you nailed this point! i forgot to LIKE mention that. I LIKE totally forgot it! Yes, your honor, I would LIKE to say that my LIKE client is LIKE TOTALLY innocent. LIKE, he TOTALLY did not LIKE commit that crime.

I thought this colloquial way of speaking ended in 8th grade. I think there is something in the water. I am ashamed to admit that I have caught myself doing this a few times b/c i hear it so much. I am now hypervigilant about the work LIKE and will use it as it is intended to be dont LIKE those girls.

I just finished my first week as a 1L and the stereotype of bitchy, snobby law students is true. i have the privlege of listening to one girl complain about how her father bought her an audi instead of a BMW. i am fortunate, however to be near such godlike geniuses. another classmate of mine is "not at all" concerned about a 4 hour comprehensive final for one of our courses. he is "very well prepared". another girl rudely yelled at a professor b/c he chose her to explain a case in our reading. she said "im not answering any questions today and if you continue, i will walk out of the class!". it is difficult and saddening to think that these people will be in a very important position of power, if they graduate. then there are the cliques. it took only one week for the high school-like cliques to form. i am really enjoying the academic aspect of LS, but am disgusted about the social aspects. is anyone else feeling this way?
