curious...i stayed logged-on as i skipped to another website and found that someone (an administrator perhaps?) had actually 1. moved my entire reply into a quote box and 2. changed my words from prick to "a real not so nice person".  i guess when you are dealing with such deliberate censorship, real discourse cannot continue.  if this ubermenschen john 259 is representative of most law students i tremble at what will become of me this fall; such wit and blinding intellect would overawe most professors. clearly this guy got into HLS but chose GW instead (for the location).  as he reminds us, he got into both ND AND GW...AND he played some kind of college sport...and he probably rushed in some frat where they shoved lincoln logs up his anus....and he still cannot reconcile in his mind why he stayed.  anywho, i can't wait to meet the likes of you in school, it should make getting on law review a good deal easier.

Wow, your ignorance surprises me with every post. I love that you think so highly of me. Yet, I'm beginning to think you might be a very disturbed pedophile. First, you talk about having imaginary kids. Now, you're imagining somebody putting lincoln logs (of all things, probably from your disgusting and illegal fantasies of children) where they don't belong. I really think you should try and cut yourself off from the internet from a few days. Just try it. Go a few days without online gaming and porn; you can thank me later.

As for the censorship, I think it is a shame that you can't express yourself however you want. I find it much easier to laugh at you and how bad you're making Wisconsin look when you're allowed to embarrass yourself however you want. If I don't hear from you for a while, then I'll know it was because you got caught on Dateline.

wow, grumpy grumpy, are you pissed GW took a drop in the ranings as well? i find it hilarious you believe you can glean so much about me from a couple little missives made to bait irritable little pricks like you and whiteyemsr. i find great humor in the fact that you feel it necessary to tell everyone that you got into ND and GW (both accept roughly one in four applicants, not overly impressive is it?).  remain...in terms of peer assessment (out of 5.0) GW-3.4, ND-3.3, and UW-3.5, as for assessment score by lawyers and judges (out of 5.0) GW 3.8, ND-3.8, and UW-3.7...pretty evenly matched wouldn't you say? it would follow then that if the assumption is ND grads are solid.  mind you whiteyesmr I said UW was not a national school, you merely parroted...my contention has never been that ND isn't a good school but rather that it is an overrated program (it seems the people at USNWR agree with me) and its national standing will continue to suffer as a result. the $1200 a month is huge; i argued that if you wanted to live in wisco and could go there for free (a T1 school ranked one slot-due to ties-behind ND) why would you want the debt regardless of what galley you end up apple-polishing for?  i would argue that the reputation of other graduate programs has everything to do with a school's national reputation, and if you look at where UW places across the board, it is one of the top schools in the country.  therefore, my dears, when you say, i went to UW, especially in professional circles . . .  john 259, way to blast 260 people you don't know (the size of this year's incoming class), you are certainly much smarter than the entire bunch.  and whiteyesmr, chicago is a cool town...i know people who loved it and hated it.  you will want to visit Wisco when you are there however since there is very little to do out-of-doors in Illinois.  While you are slaving away to benefit some partner who secretely hates you, I would avoid the Wisconsin bashing however, UW places quite well in Chicago.  john 259, as a husband and father of two kids with a good circle of friends i certainly don't care what others think of me.  while i don't go out of my way to alienate people in REAL life (again dude, this is pretend world here) i certainly wouldn't mind if guys like you who need to constantly remind themselves that they are important and special, stayed away.

Vaginatorix, it is obvious that the only "professional circles" you are a part of are the ones at the Renaissance fair and maybe whatever theme restaurant you work at. A "beastie?" Who talks like that except for people at the aforementioned locations and avid Dungeons & Dragons kids.

The fact that you mentioned "husband and father of two kids" tells us that you do care what people think about you, because you just lied about being married and finding someone unfortunate enough to have your kids.

Also, I do not believe I bashed anybody other than you in your entering class. I even referred to your classmates as smart, which will be evidenced in the fact that you will feel alienated by them because youre obviously a social outcast who is obviously not very bright and gets a kick out of people actually responding to your ignorant blathering about how bad you have been hurt by your rejection letter from ND, which is why I mentioned that I had been accepted (it is okay that you were not part of that 1 out of 4). ND is a lot tougher to get into than UW; you failed to mention the LSAT scores and that 25% of admitted students at UW got below a 156. Personally, I like everybody I know who went to UW but I still have not met one who didnt grow up in Wisconsin. I just feel bad for the other folks in your entering class who will have to hear you whine on and on about your problems with Madisons Renaissance fair, not getting into ND, and your imaginary wife and kids. Good luck with all that.

The one positive of going to Wisconsin is that you don't have to take the Wisconsin bar. However, I don't believe that makes up for the weather or the fact that you have to deal with overrated Big Ten sports, though Notre Dame is equally awful in sports. I would also take the ND alumni network any day; Golden Domers tend to look out for one another.





Yeah but how many graduates stay in Wisconsin? ND has been slipping in sports, lately, but I'm optimistic for this year!

Again, I was just trying to help Vaginatorix out and hate Wisconsin and Indiana/ND equally; I'm happy at GW. As far as sports go, you can be as optimistic as you want, but the SEC will always be the premier college athletic conference.

what's all this talk about college sports? do you guys get all dressed up for the big games and try reliving the ole glory days, boring the hell out of the UG population with stories about rush week?  when your "team" loses, do you get all despondent and *&^% and spend the balance of an otherwise perfectly good monday wasting everyone's time discussing how you would have run the offense?  i'll bet you have one of those flags you jam in your car window.  no wonder you can't get laid.  or maybe your jock-o facade is a thin veneer over the Oscar Wilde in you, camp as a row of pink tents.

First, I'm really sorry that you never made it on any sports teams in your life and I'm sure it sucked that the online college where you got your undergrad degree didn't have any teams to watch either, aside from your online gaming league. Your skin probably can't stand the sunlight for more than 10 minutes at a time.

Second, I'm also sorry that ND rejected you. I got accepted to ND but chose GW, because I couldn't imagine myself having to live in the midwest, though I have nothing against the people, just the geography. However, it wouldn't take me 2 seconds to choose ND over Wisconsin. I don't care how high Wisconsin climbs in the rankings, because it will never be as respected nationally as ND. Anywhere in the country you can tell somebody that you graduated from ND and they know you're solid. Somebody tells me they graduated from Wisconsin, I immediately ask, "So you grew up in Wisconsin?" They typically say yes.

Finally, Wisconsin's rise in the rankings is a fluke and they will no doubt drop after this year's incoming class. Vaginatorix, I am glad that you took time out from your game of Dungeons & Dragons to let me know exactly how poor your incoming class must be, but I assume it's tough to get good students to spend 3 years in Wisconsin if they're not from there. You're going to have to learn how to respond to arguments, read closely, and write in legible sentences before you get to law school. However, it's obvious that your 3 years in law school are going to be tough for you anyway, unless you're already used to being a social outcast, which is no doubt the case. Smart students like to hang out together, and I have a feeling you'll be left out, not just on account of your reluctance to stop dressing like some goth kid high schooler.

General Board / Re: When are Thank You notes crass or inappropriate?

Just remember, if it's somebody you really do want to pursue for a job eventually or want to stay in contact with, make sure the note is handwritten and personalized.

Also, don't include naked pictures of yourself. Attorneys frown upon it. I had to learn the hard way.

Riiight...because sooo many people want to live in Wisconsin... Good try. Bottom line, you can't compare ND to Wisconsin. I think that's already been established.

You are now using the weather to back what you call your "argument?" Yeah, great that you've convinced yourself that Wisconsin is a great place to live. I guess that's understandable though, as you will surely be stuck there when you graduate.

As for me and my colleagues, yes we are stuck in Indiana for the time being, which I admit sucks in the winter, but nobody stays in Indiana! So again, good try. No bar exam? Yeah, I bet the market in Wisconsin is just begging for lawyers... Also, you do realize that if you want to leave Wisconsin you will have to take the bar in another state, right? 

I think you should bow out before you start using the quality of cheeses to back your stellar "arguments."

Yeah, I was just trying to point out the good in Wisconsin because I thought the poor kid (preL)-etorix, or whatever the name, was getting murdered in the argument. I now realize that I just feel bad when I read the thoughts of someone who won't cut it in law school, and vaginatorix sounds like that type. I need to stop letting the zealous advocate in me jump in before I fully understand how much of a feminine hygiene product bag somebody must be. Anyway, good luck to him/her at Wisconsin, but I'm guessing U of Wisconsin's admin dept. just made a big mistake.

I think you should call your parents and have them come talk to the administration about it, since you sound like a child.
OR
How about you act like an adult and suck it up. Everybody else in your class is dealing with the same thing. It's the product of unfortunate circumstances, that's life and you need to learn to deal with it before you have to go out into the big bad world on your own.

Very helpful advice isn't it.  Johns, you must be a stellar student because your insight and the way you handle people is very uplifting.  I agree that everyone is in the same situation and therefore it really shouldn't effect the curve; however, I am sure the extra stress of not knowing what will show up on the final is not needed. 

God forbid you have stress in law school. A lot of stuff in life is not needed, but it happens anyway and there's no use whining about it. If you know the material, who the hell cares what the exam looks like. If they have model answers to old exams, you may want to get an idea of what they like in an answer and format, but that shouldn't take you more than an hour.

Furthermore, I'm guessing that you've never been in a leadership position where something unavoidable happened and you had to deal with whiners on top of making the best out of the situation. The administration and students should be focused on letting the professor recover. If you would put avoiding a little stress to law students (which they'll no doubt have to get used to anyway) over a man's health, then you have some problems. There's a lot of stuff in life more important than a little stress over a K class; you could be in Iraq.

General Board / Re: Two journals.... worthwhile or crazy?
« on: March 27, 2007, 02:47:24 PM »
Law Review is really the only journal that matters, and if you've been told otherwise, they've lied to you. Some other journal might be pertinent if you're going into that field and got a note or something published in it. Otherwise, focus on getting good grades over joining another journal.

Two journals, neither of which are law review, would be idiotic.
