I make mistakes from time to time unlike you who has the tendency to make huge mistakes every time he posts. I admit when I am at fault because I am not only civilized but also not some damn neanderthal with a computer.

As for your second line, so what? You pay male prostitutes $5 to give you oral in a back alley. (1) I am not gay and, (2) I have a trust fund, investments, and a banking accounts with money in them. I have no debt and good credit and I have never been in need of a loan. You needed the army to pay for school whereas I can go to any law school I want without having to take out loans, government grants, or some scholarship money.

@babylawyer: your original...

a very smart person will do worse when the material is easy than when it is hard.  If the material is hard, the very smart person will understand more of it than her average classmates, and so will be at an advantage.

The curve isn't what I am addressing but rather your assessment of a smart individual doing poorly on easier material. I am arguing the logic of your premise which was that sentence. Your curves are to back it up but like I said before, they lack credible sources to make your aforementioned statement (i.e. smart doing poorly on easier material) valid.

Well then you completely missed the point.  I didn't say "a very smart person will do worse when the material is easy than when it is hard"; I said "On a forced curve, a very smart person will do worse when the material is easy than when it is hard."  The curve in combination with the easy material makes law school difficult by introducing a greater element of random chance than there would be if the material were hard or if there were no curve.

Also, that wasn't a premise.  The premises was actually that on an easy test, there is less of an opportunity for a smart person to show her superiority than there is on a hard test.  Do you disagree with that?

For forced curves, I wouldn't know too much about that being I haven't been to law school and my current college primarily grades on no curves. I have never been graded on a curve which is why I find it ridiculous for law schools to grade on a curve. Whether they want everyone to focus on the material or get good grades does not make much sense to me. The highest and lowest will just average out the least of the two making most people look good and the smarter students look average in comparison. It is completely stupid in my opinion. I misconstrued your post though, my bad.

Better to be a "stupid" lawyer than a "smart" Troll living in his dads basement who can't even get in the Marines......oh yeah, I went there.

I could get into the marines if I want to but I decided to not go to the marines now. Maybe after law school. I don't want to make a commitment to the service until I know that is something I really want to do in 3 years after law school. Also, you don't make any sense, you'd rather be a, "dumb lawyer than a smart troll"? Sometimes I believe you are drunk.

There could be a number of reasons a person want to transfer over to another school. Some of them could be that they dislike the professors, believe they should transfer to a state where they would like to practice law, the price of living in their current area is too high, etc... You will have to go through your finances and assess your situation, the pros and cons of moving vs. staying, then come to an ultimate decision.

I love how this guy keeps talking about "your clients will be upset that you know the law and not stuff that isn't the law, since the law is easy and someone not knowing law but knowing not law makes blah,blah F'in blah......"

Are you honestly asking BL for "proof" of how the curve works? Seriously, what an F'indumbass.
THAT is how you know he's just a troll, and not even a real undergrad student.

Due to your inability to readily understand simple sentences, I will make them more simple for you. You, REALITY, a-r-e (sound it out) s-t-u-p-i-d (rhymes with cupid).

@REALITY: If you ever get clients I will feel sorry for them for having such an incompetent person as you for a lawyer seeing as though you cannot grasp simple sentences.

Advanced math/physics takes more skills and brain power than law school. Theoretical physics and particle physics is harder than anything a law school student will have to do in his/her life.

I believe people are rather embarrassed that when they see a person younger than them operating on a higher level, they stoop to lows to try and feel like they are important. I see that a lot. I don't need any world views or unfounded statements to know how I will perform compared to your inaccurate data, Babylawyer. Show me the studies/statistics of smarter students doing more poorly on easier subjects than harder subjects...  If you give me your own perception based off what you have seen that is simply a compositional error in logic.

I only post stuff I do understand. Most of what I post is generally agreed by many people in law school and recent graduates. I don't know where you got that idea from. Also, a person who attends Cooley law is not two steps in front of me but rather, 10 steps behind. Like I said before, you place too much emphasis on pieces of paper and institutional education to know anything about the law. I've been studying law before you even decided to become a lawyer, so you really don't know as much except for some idiotic nonsense that law school is tough and the "interpretation" is hard.

I never said I was perfect. Perfection is not what I would opt to be as imperfection gives life meaning. Yet, again, you prove to me your idiocy. I am good at what I do and whatever I venture into I do with the best of my ability. Aside from that, your idioms are trailing on the route of inane triviality, just stop while you have some modicum of self-preservation.
As for the undergrad remarks... I may be an "undergrad" but the facts don't change. I am much, much smarter than you will ever be in your miserable life.

^ Guy is giving you bad advice. On average physics/math and engineering majors outperform the "liberal arts" majors on the LSAT. It requires more brain activity and actually strengthens your brain for intense mental thought processes. You think quicker than others. Not everyone is bad at math nor do I believe in such generalizations full-heartedly. The kids I tutored emphasized they were horrible at mathematics, you know what? I taught them how to do problems, comprehend what it is telling them, and how to check their work effectively. Those same kids who emphatically exclaimed, "I suck at math," actually ended up receiving grades of B's and A's in their respective mathematics course. It is not on them that they are bad, it is the lackluster teachers who are teaching them in a horrible manner.

I used to suck at mathematics until I took the time to actually learn the material.

If you have a passion for the sciences, don't let some idiot tell you, "if you aren't great at math, then don't go into it!" That is stupid advice from a moron. If you have a passion for the sciences and find yourself having difficulty in understanding mathematics, then just find material on the net to learn mathematics from. When someone asks me what sites they can go to improve on their mathematics skills, I always suggest, "yourteacher.com," to first strengthen the core. Once you master the smaller material of mathematics, the rest will be easier for you to master as well (it will be hard but it won't be impossible to master). Many scientists had great difficulty with mathematics and people often called them idiots, yet most of those scientists who had great difficulty with mathematics turned out to be Pulitzer prize winners and jumped our society a few years ahead.

Your proclivity to defame others to try and hide your actual inferiority-complex is actually astounding. I see you hide behind many different user-names and can't seem to fit into just one. You possibly mimic others because you view them as better than yourself. People who believe they are inferior to others tend to do just that and you are obviously showing the signs. Do yourself a favor, stay consistent, stay on key, and don't try to come at me. You will only get emotionally scarred in continuing your rather diminutive remarks bred out of ignorance and stupidity. You may just lack the cognizance for law in the first place so I don't know why you are trying to become a lawyer.
