General Off-Topic Board / Re: How to deal with Gunners!

Thank you for ruining a thread with such intellectual promise with your self-promoting fecal refuse.

Check the record! I was attacked. I offered one genuine comment and got attacked...in fact, I now see that I was being attacked before I even arrived.

Thank ME? You need to thank those terds who started on me. I have NEVER ruined a thread. The reason is that I do not provike fights. I may finish them, but I certasinly don't start them.

Like I said...read the record.

But I find him entertaining.  :)

I do not care about being attacked, even under the veil of "entertainment". I am very secure. And some of my ideas do appear to be "out there", I realize that. But at least I can try on a new perspective and form my own thoughts. And those thoughts have sered me well, otherwise, I would not be nearly as accomplished as I am.

But, back to the topic, gunners do not realize that they are wasting money and time...their own as well as that of the other students and the profs. Every minute spent on a student's comments is a minute less of prof lecture. Even if just five minutes are wasted in a single class session, a 1L class can waste at least hundred$ of thou$and$ of dollar$ per year if not million$.   

I meant Cool Beans.  It's not always about you.

But I'm sure you're very accomplished and all that.  I'm sure you'll even learn modesty somewhere down the line.

It's not always about me? You wouldn't know it by the way you guys write about me. When i'm off doing other stuff, you guys write about me. When I sleep, you write about me. When I'm with my girlfriend, you are writing about me. You all know MY name, I couldn't tell any of you from each other, save for your avitars...and that's only when I am responding. I no nobody's name, but everybody knows MY name. That's a telltale sign of popularity, notoriety, whatever you want to call it. And, in today's world, there's little or no difference betwwen the terms. And you're always thinking about me, even when you eat...when you are being intimate with your very forgiving, undemanding mates, you are thinking of ME. Looks like it's ALL about me. You were writing about me before I even came to this thread. I must be damn good to occupy your thoughts like that. You people can't even function without me. The first thing you do every day is look to see what I have posted. If it was pure nonsense, you would have been bored to death long ago and shown it by not responding. But you cannot do that b/c I am just too strong and too provocative to resist.

I'm glad the village idiot feels validated by the tomatoes we're throwing at him.  :D

Hey, come on...can't knock the logic. It's the Hollywood Theory: If (A) they're talkin' aboutcha, followin' ya, callin' ya gay or smearin' ya...makin' fun of ya...makin' up rumors aboutcha...that mean's (B) ya matter

- Eddie Murphy

You can say it a million ways: "The only time they talk about you is if you necessarily matter" or "In order for them to talk about you, you must matter", etc.

And you know what the contropositive of that statement is:

If A then B = If NOT B then NOT A

So if you don't matter, they won't talk about you...

Affirmative Action / Re: AA and the LSAT

But all of that would turn legal education upside down.

Not a problem as far as I'm concerned.

So you're down with the cause...lol. Ride or die, huh? I love it.

Who decided that the random/arbitrary 35 min was the threshold needed to separate students along the scale?

The Law School Admissions Council, apparently.

Though you make a fair point.  Why not expand it and say that we should have different programs for litigators, transactions lawyers?

Agreed, but do you think it would be a good idea for schools to steer students into specific careers? It might not be such a bad thing.  What if admissions went like this:

LawDog3, you are admitted to Columbia as a Litigation student but denied as a Transactional Law student. Our Litigation track consists of xyz courses during your first year. You may transfer to the Free-Choice Track, where you are allowed to choose your own courses, after successfully completing your first year with a 3.5+ GPA in litigation.

LawDog3, congratulations! You have been admitted to Northwestern's Free Choice Track. You will take a generalized first-year curriculum and are free to choose your courses beginning your second year.

Congratulations, LawDog3! You have been admitted to Virginia's Transactional Law Track, but denied as a Litigation candidate. Students may not transfer tracks once they accept their offers of admission, but are given preferred admission to our LL.M. Program upon completion of their JD's with a GPA of 3.5 or better.


Can you imagine law degrees being awarded by specific tracks, i.e., "JD in Transactional Law"?

But all of that would turn legal education upside down.

What makes no sense to me is the chronology of law school. I get the idea that those courses are the most generalized/foundational,and that firms believe performance in them to indicate potential performance. But 1L performance does nothing of the sort.

Why not have advanced versions of the same first-year courses during the third year, just for one semester. Make the first 1L semester pure hell, but allow electives beginning spring 1L through spring2L (three semesters of electives).   

Then give the advanced first-year courses in the fall of 3L, with more electives coming in the final semester. Employers could, then, begin basing their hiring decisions on 3L performance instead of 1L, and the truly deserving students would get the jobs.

Or, better yet, just spread out the first year courses along the entire curriculum. If they want law school to remain tough, grade tougher or require more courses.

Trying: the first step to failing.  ;)

There is no hope for you...you're a follower and a coward. I really do feel sorry for you. I have said it before, and I will now reiterate...you are intiomidated by true intelligence, that which operates on its own and needs no edification.

When have you ever formed an original thought or idea and put it on this board? I have never seen it.

"True intelligence?"  :D

Note what I just said about your trying to show humility.

How juvenile, come on..."first step to failing". Not succeeding...so the Wright Bros. didn't "try...and retry", they just "did"? Babies don't "try" to walk before they actually "do"? You sound philosophically retarded...and you're doing it with unoriginal thoughts; that's even worse.

And I went to Yale....please.  No one ever has such a feigned dissatchment to a school.  This thread is so transparent it hurts me.

And I didnt go to Yale...clearly...but a better school than all listed (with the exception of NU). 

While I think that LawDog's high opinion of Tulane is slanted due to the fact that he's heading there in the fall, I agree with his basic point that Tulane is the better choice in this instance.  $45k in debt is still significant, but not unmanageable even if you don't end up working at a big firm.

Of course it's not just $45k; you have to factor in loans for other things.  But that would be the case at SJU as well.

I'm headed for Columbia, with $75K as opposed to a full scholy...which is why I am re-taking the LSAT. Also, if my zealousness for a school is a reliable clue to where I am going (as you seem to believe), UCLA, Chicago-Kent, Howard, and NU would be the more likely picks. I am much more of an "advocate" for those schools in discussions b/c people tend to underrate them. 

If that makes you feel better about yourself, go with it. What's the matter, my looks getting to you? Yeah, that tends to happen. lol. It's just not fair for one person to be this good-looking and smart enough to go to "Columbiane/Tulumbia", is it? lol. I guess I must be one of those AA admits that took a seat at an elite school from a more deserving white guy, huh? Or, according to you, I'm headed for Tulane (a school I would NOT be ashamed to attend, btw). ;)

You're working with your ex and wondering how you can turn that into a good situation?

You can't.

But you should try to not be goaded into anything.  You should never have started to contradict what this person says.  Just let him go through life spewing misinformation and being his gunner self.  You can't put a gunner in his place; you can only avoid him.  Live and let live.

Sure you can put a gunner in his or her place. You just need to make them feel absolutely and utterly stupid. This involves a bit of confrontation though. But it can be done. Trust me.

But if you're a peaceful or unconfrontational person (unlike myself) then I would agree. Live and let live.

Maybe so, but it didn't work so well for OP.  He/she just got an enemy who is trying to undermine him/her.

I think it might have something to do with the prior dating experience.

Anyway, I'm telling you, make him feel like an idiot infront of a large enough crowd of people (i.e. by proving him wrong on some major point that he had made a stupid comment about) and he'll shut up around you. Guaranteed or your money back.

If that's true, how do you explain LawDog?

LawDog is a positive contributor to this and other boards, one who does not post as much as he should. LawDog also knows much more than anyone will give him credit for...that's how you explain LawDog. Now, what's your excuse for being...YOU? lol. BTW, I have never been embarrassed by anyone on this board, and I doubt anyone here has the intellect to come even remotely close to doing it. It's not that people are not intelligent, they are. It's just that making a truly intelligent and street-wise person look foolish is no easy feat. You have to be a genius to pull that one off.

Yeah, lawdog.  I defend you and then you make me look like a jackass.   ::)

Not at all. I really appreciate you...as I said down below. How did I make you look like a jackass, anyways? I did not refute your points. They were well-taken. I'm trying to show some humility here, the kind bl825 claims I do not possess.

Ur my dog!
