General Board / Re: are your classmates snobby a**holes?
« on: October 14, 2005, 12:54:19 PM »
Well, I have this black woman in my class who raises her hand without thinking.  She makes these loud remarks like "uh huh.......that's right...that's right!" As if she's in church or something.  The teacher doesn't even have time to lecture and there she is with her hand up again asking the stupidest question that doesn't even relate to the topic that we are learning.  She acts as though she is so intelligent.  I can't stand her.  With her comments, it reveals to the class that she didn't read her cases or listened to the what the teacher lectured on last class period.  She's always whispering loudly towards the other students next to her asking what such and such means. 

She annoys me to no end!  Once when the professor said to another woman, "That was an excellent brief!"  Her hand pops up and is she says, "Professor, can I do the next brief."  I'm assumming she wants the professor to praise her and say, "excellent brief"...but sometimes, I feel she volunteers because she didn't read all the briefs.  So she'll just do the one that she finished.  My professors only make you brief once during class time.  He wants it so that everyone else gets a chance to brief when he runs his fingers up and down the rollsheet.

Socratic Method / Re: Do u get called on once or more than once???
« on: October 07, 2005, 03:34:01 PM »
What have you people seen happen when somebody gets called on, they are not prepared, etc.  Spill it.  Anybody pee their pants?  Just freeze up?  I used to be so afraid of being called on that I couldn't even focus on the lecture, let alone the question asked of me.

You spill the stories, I'll reveal the trick.  Deal?
I know what you mean about "I used to be so afraid of being called on that I couldn't even focus on the lecture, let alone the question asked of me."
How do you overcome this?

I totally agree with you.  They should teach us the black letter law too instead of this discussions... listening to students who don't know what they are talking about try to act smart.  I want to hear what the professor has to say to know that what I'm hearing is actually correct.

Pointless Arguments / Re: Annoying classmates

I hate you fake handicapped girl,
   
    You are another one that is always asking stupid questions in class, so that everytime you speak, classmates whisper "Psycho" under their breath. You are annoying and balding. I am tired of looking at your ponytail that only has 2 pieces of hair in it. Besides, 40 somethings should not walk around with a ponytail anyway. A 40 year old with a ponytail does not look "girlish," it looks "goulish." I have seen you in the parking garage and you always get to park in the handicapped space on the 1st level. Why is that? I have followed you from class. I don't see any gimp or limp. In fact, you seem to walk fine to me. You may have a mental disability, but I didn't know that was cause for parking in a closer spot than me. I am going to call the State and tell them that there is a fake handicapped girl at my school and that she is taking parking spots away from legitimate handicapped people!

I know...it's like the teacher will drill and drill you until you come up with the "exact term".  My torts professor is like that, if you can't get the issues and what the case is trying to teach you, he'd keep drilling you.  He'd talk about case for a bit and make you do the next case until you get it right.  I mean, one person had to stand up and muddle through the case for almost 40 minutes.  I'm sure he did like 2 cases in a row.

My torts professor said, "I don't teach you the black letter law in here, you are suppose to learn that on your own. I teach you to issue spot."

From all the reading of the cases, when do I even have time to learn the black letter law cold?  Make no sense.

Give me less cases to read and "maybe" I'll have time to actually teach myself the solid law.  Not enough time in the day.
