Pointless Arguments / Re: Encouragement needed
« on: May 19, 2006, 07:10:39 PM »
The fact is your dad complained, partners in law firms hate complainers.  More writing advice "about about" will not get you on any journal.  Also starting a sentence with "And" is a sign of bad writing skills.  You obviously go to a t4 or non aba law school, and should give up trying to write onto a journal, you lack basic writing skills.  Also working in a law firm before law school is viewed by most partners as a NEGATIVE.  If you do not believe me read anonymous lawyers blog.  Paralegals carry a bad stigma with them for there entire career.

To top it off, this idiot is criticizing people's writing.  Starting a sentence with "and" means you must go to a t4?  Well, you must go to one to; last time I checked the correct word was "their," not "there."

This board is so lame.  Every single student that ever graduated with a hard earned degree complained at one point or another.  Anyone who just finished exams and now is working on a paper is going to be a little worn out.  I can't believe how lame some people are, "law firms don't like complainers."  Well no *&^% shirlock.  No one likes a complainer, but one complaint doesn't make you a complainer.  Anyone who lives there entire life without voicing a single complaint is either mute or brain dead. 

I especially like the "don't brag about your accomplishments, because I can brag more than you can."  That makes tons of sense.  Actaully, it doesn't make any sense because she wasn't bragging in the first place, but only providing evidence towards the fact that she is a hard worker.

Unfortunately, if you are looking for encouragement you came to the wrong place.  This forum is completely unmoderated from what I can tell, and it attracts a lot of people who feel the need to put others down.

Also consider this:

This site if for people who enjoy engaging in, what I will call for lack of a better term, a massive pissing contest.  They congratulate how elite their position on a normal curve allows for a score placing that was originally designed for WWII fighter pilots.  The LSAT has, and always will be, bull.  But it's what we have, so don't take any lower teir attacks to heart.  I question myself all the time why I even bother reading this self-congratulatory site.

Well said.

There are plenty of people who will try to tell you that their LSAT score should put them in an elite group for the rest of their life.  The truth of the matter is that school reputation is relevant but not dispositive.  There are plenty of people at T1 and T2 schools who graduate without a job and take the bar before looking for work.

As to it being just one paper, this describes a lot of things in law school. 

True.

This guy responds to every post I make, within minutes, yet says I am 'hanging on' him?

Learn english dumb ass, a one word sentence is not a sentence (pathetic.) that is a pathetic sentence.  You go to a tier 2 so I guess that explains it and are in love with a giraffe, who is NOT attractive and has knees for boobs.  I was popular is hs and still am, I just think if you have a negative 20 rating or more you should be banned from this site.

Looks like Erapitt made a new screen name.

giraffesgf - "I was popular in hs and still am..."
Erapitt - "I have a wonderful life..."

Sounds familiar.

Besides, two years after you graduate the only two things that will matter are where you graduated from and if you were on Law Review. 


You mean besides work experience, area of expertise, legal connections, and reputation?  In that case, I agree with you.

I never understood why law review is considered prestigous at schools where it is a write on competition.  You write one good paper and you have something to brag about for you entire life?  At my school it is 1L grades, and you can also try to write on during the summer.

General Board / Re: withdrawal
« on: May 15, 2006, 09:16:05 AM »
yeah, I would say it depends on the nature of your withdrawal.  If you withdrew right before getting expelled or failing out, then you might have a hard time getting back in.

3L job search / Re: Timing Sucks

On one hand you have to hand it to the guy for not taking a job he knew he would hate.  On the other hand, nobody wants to hear bitching about lack of job opportunity from someone who turned down a job.
