So, I should give up my wordly goods and go fight world hunger?  Why don't you head to France or somewhere similar; I'll gladly pay for a one-way ticket if you surrender citizenship.


France, huh? Still eating your 'freedom fries'?

But whatever. I'm quite sure you'll have a meaningful, worthwhile life in your own oblivious way.

Just for you to think about, for whatever it's worth:

"We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered."  - MLK, Jr.

The "little bit pregnant" analogy would be apt here.

I still don't disagree with you.

Why?

some are disappointed with admissions decisions,
some are defensive about schools that that they have developed a preference for,
some overestimate their worth because they've been admitted to [or attend] prestijus schools
some are anxious wrt big-ticket admissions decisions that haven't yet been made

sprinkle in:

inter-poster familiarity-breeds-contempt type stuff
the hell-i've-been-quiet-long-enough-about-my-disdain-for-this-poster effect
the fact tht many people haven't yet met face to face at ASWs

and you get this mid-winter phenomenon.


I doubt its that complicated.

Some of us are just louts who don't give a flying @#!* about exposing even bigger louts and douchebags for being inane, close-minded tools who don't give two shits about anything other than the name on their degree, how much money they make, and how preoccupied they are with shoving their heads far enough up their own asses so that they're oblivious to the really significant obligations in life.

However, if it weren't for their meaningless existence, we ourselves would have a meaningless existence; in that regard I agree with you and Brer.

This is interesting.  Lets assume you are right and I am only preoccupied with money, my alma mater, etc.  What gives you the right to dictate what I should or should not be preoccupied with? As long as my desires don't affect/hurt you it really isn't any of your concern.  Last I checked this was still the land of the free not a socialist farce.

The last time I checked we don't individually live in a vacuum. HTFH, tool.

It's halfie.  Look out--they like to "out" people who they think are uneducated. 

In your case we'll hope it leads to actually educating yourself.

But I'd say Steve Blowjob is f-cked indefinitely.

Threads like this show the necessity of a genuine liberal arts education, instead of that "diversity" course that some of you just slept through anyway.



Who are you talking about?


The dimwits that don't or can't understand race and racism.

Both systems have schools in "tiers", but the delineation in law is far more pronounced. There's no real "T14" concept in physics. Sure - if you end up at Harvard or Princeton you're doing pretty damn well, but life isn't over if you're going into a 50th ranked school as some make it seem with law.



These people are dullards, though, and shouldn't be taken seriously at all.

Actually, you might pity them (if you so choose).

9. I don't advertise it, either. In fact, I'm a bit concerned about having to score a bit higher on the LSAT to offset the fact that I got my degree here. I'd hate to think that what I first believe to be reach schools are out of reach, and have to settle for schools I thought I would be, well, settling for.

I'm not entirely sure that it makes a difference in admissions. Its an accredited program, and all the Adcomms really want is that high GPA that they can get from a UofPh student. MAYBE at the Ivy League/T-10 type schools.

You're kind of an asshat, aren't you?

OH NO! YOUR TIMELY INSULT HAS PROVEN MY ASSERTION ASSUMPTION WRONG!

Besides I'm not "kind of" an asshat... All or nothing!

Fixed it for you, dingleberry.  ;)
