General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Class Statistics?
« on: August 27, 2010, 12:33:56 PM »
Either way, they have been getting trolled since I joined this site. This board is pretty dead though but at least it gets active once in a while. I found it funny that Denny actually mentioned the tollness yet went on to write an essay on the ramifications of being an arrogant prick would bring me. I have to admit though, most of what I was posting was complete bull yet people still got all fumed up and were going apeshit. Lol, pickle strikes again successively!

Many students who scored consistently high were discouraged to learn that their actual score was lower.

Then there are students who scored exactly the same on the LSAT as on their practice tests.

Therefore, he is free to @#!* up his future

I have many options to go towards other than becoming a lawyer which, by the way, I might not become one. I just want a J.D. in case I change my mind and decide to become a lawyer one day. Other than that, I could just about do anything I want. Unlike you, striving to become something and live a moderate life, I have other lucrative options. So what I teach law while not being in law school, what can they do to me? Nothing, that is what. I have many other options, parents that will take care of me when I need them to, and money to spend at my leisure. As far as some committee having control over my life goes, well... they don't and they can shove it. I could do more things other than law and still live better than a lawyer like I have been all of my life.

This is easily an ethical violation.

Not necessarily being that I am not in law school right now. Those who are in law school must abide by the tenets of that prescribed school's code of ethics. I am not in law school, therefore I do not have to abide by the same code of ethics you willingly give yourself to. Besides, I don't believe another human has the moral high-ground to tell me what I am doing is "wrong" as wrong is just the perception of that one person and is not globally accepted but by those who, again, willingly give themselves over to it. Don't play that card with me though.

untrained people teaching law students about the law.

Untrained in the sense of not being trained by a conglomerate of their own prescription on what is analysis. That defeats the purpose, they tell you how to think rather than you thinking for yourself. Yes, I am untrained in that I have a mind of my own and am not a catalyst for some old man to place his ideals into to go out into the world and preach the same ideals. I will think for myself.

As for Harvard, I will get in, so I have no problem saying I will be attending that school. I have everything I need to get into except for the LSAT which will be taken in the fall. Even then, the score will be great. I have been scoring 180's consecutively for 2 months and most of the questions seem like child's play if you ask me. So, I took some of the older tests which seem a bit tougher than the newer ones and I still scored perfectly. The LSAT will be a breeze and I will get a 180 more than likely.

As for Socrates, I don't follow his philosophy. The point of being your own man is to follow your own ideology and only consider other philosophy. I feel sorry that you have become another meme out to mimic the greats.

Affirmative Action / Re: Why Affirmative Action is Justified
« on: August 26, 2010, 12:30:33 PM »
It probally matters what community you grow up in, to decide your view on that.
I agree with you that if your parents are millioniares and don't feel the strain, then go for it.
What bugs me I guess, is to see parents take out "parent plus loans" to take care of it for their kids. To me, if someone would do that to their parents, it just screams about how little they respect them. I have friends who had to have parents cosign, and I understand that from a credit requirment perspective, but to have the parent take the bucket load of the debt, just screams selfishness.

I haven't been in this topic for a while and just read your post. (1) My parents and I never needed a loan or money from the government. (2) My parents are paying for my college expenses out of pocket because they took out more than enough and saved it before I was born. They took out an annuity of a 5% return every 3 years, and it added up to more than enough to put me through graduate school. To add to that my grandparents did the same, so there is no need for me to have a loan. (3) My dad and mother have money because they were smart with their money management and are bright, but their parents were wealthy (investors) as well. (4) I am 20 living off of my parents because they want me to focus more on school instead of external things and they want me to generate and create my own wealth the smart way rather than following idiotic children and get a job just to pay off rent (giving money away), work at a job I dislike (added stress), and lose focus on what matters (your future prospects). (5) I have lucrative stocks, options, and futures portfolios that are generating me money and I am pretty good at it now that I would be considered a veteran. I have been trading since I was 12 years old with my father and mother. (6) While it is common for 20+ to be living on their own, it is not common for those same 20+ to have lots of their own generated wealth, triple majors, and about to graduate while they are 20 years old.

Those who looked over the exam online to memorize the questions don't really know much about learning. I'd rather get a B on an exam I studied, conceptualized, interpreted on my own, rather than memorizing a bunch of questions. They are really losing out on an education. The more you know, the better off you are in life.

Don't go to Iowa but rather Howard if those are your only options.

I'd rather teach Numitor about the law than argue with you, Denny, about my own life. I am currently offering free lessons to law school students who want to go more in depth in the legal analysis of the law. I will teach people what I know on my spare time. I start my last semester in two weeks and the class line-up is easy and small so I have virtually nothing to do except wait to take the LSAT... I won't be going to Harvard until next fall so I will be bored throughout this year and the first half of the next since I decided not to work until I get a better pay grade, benefits, and office.

As for class statistics, the topic, before it was derailed by a bunch of ruffians... You should not worry about the stats as they aren't tantamount to anything unless you're in the top percentile (especially on dumb curves). Be happy that you aren't getting kicked out and worry more about your understanding of the topic because the bar will weigh more than some class stats.

I am in the top 5% of smartest people in the World in my age group, so... That is with an actual test proctored by a professor and I have the papers to prove it. You going to Law School does not mean you are smart, just had enough to get into a school that may as well be so-so or average for law school students. If you ever got into Harvard or any of the top 3, then and only then, could you assert that you are smart but nowhere near the top 5%, other than that shut up. I bet you don't even understand the principles of nuclear fusion, infinity (able to grasp it conceptually), particle physics, grasping the concepts or core of quantum mechanics, or understanding that the gravity you believe exists does not exist in the way you have come to understand it. Yet, you undeniably assert you're smarter than me? I find that laughable. Only a few people are smarter than me and none of them are you.

I could read all there is about law and grasp the concepts and interpret them, you want to know why? I read much harder stuff that normal, everyday people couldn't grasp in a year full of study on that same concept. That is why law school will be a breeze for me. I am not a scientist though and I undertake it more as a hobby than a career profession. I don't feel like working as hard as it took me to fully grasp a concept that I still have a bit of trouble trying to understand thoroughly. I will, possibly, never understand general relativity in my life time, but I doubt you or anyone else on this board could understand even the most minor principles.

For further reading try answering a simple question on  particles being naturally smaller thus follow some sort of time dilation like the time dilation experiment that showed us that those who were traveling in a plane were actually moving a couple of seconds faster than those on Earth... So, in effect and due to the aforementioned question, how does space differ from time on Earth exactly?

Asserting you are smarter than me just by you being in law school and reading a few human made books on human made concepts and interpreting those concepts based on previous ideals set by your forefather is really more of an insult to me and my intelligence. In the field of life, knowledge of life and space, I surely outrank you. I may be an undergrad but then again I am only 20 and about to graduate in the winter with a 4.0 in three disciplines that are unrelated to science. I didn't find school exactly hard as I could learn more outside of school than in an institutionalized educational system that merely acts as an ego booster to the lesser, underdeveloped breed of humans. I have to go to school to get a degree, but on my spare time, I study all sorts of science (not pop-science), philosophy, and I am currently working on developing my own theory towards the conceptualization of a God vs. the concept of humanity. A little rough title but once I finish the theory, I will create a new title.

You should try a different school other than Howard University. Try somewhere in the North instead of southern schools. From what I have seen, most of them are pretty bad including Howard University.

I already had a few professors in my sophomore year trying to make me look like an idiot in front of the class, you know what, it didn't work. Of course, I didn't know the answer, but I told him, "that is why I am taking this class, to learn, you're the professor, so you tell me what it is you view as a credible or sufficient answer to your own problem." Doesn't matter as any professor trying to show me up in class will have his words, logic, and order of thought, turned back on him/her. The professor that try to make me look like an idiot, looked like the idiot in the end. As for giving me hell, good luck with that, because as much "hell" they are trying to give me, is as much hell they will have to give the rest of the class. Also, that same "hell" helps me improve on my own abilities. It is a win/win for me in the end.

I don't argue with morons, especially when morons use ad hominem to reply to what was an attempt at giving an opinion and observations

Yet you go on tirelessly to assert one, redundant point that is contradictory to your own post? You just proved to me your own idiocy. Better luck next time.

Undergrad is a joke.  Any doofus who applies himself can do well.

That same logic applies to life. Yet again, you shot yourself in the foot.

If you were smarter you'd fix your post up a bit.
