"Badges? Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!"
Sounds like we are on the same page Wills.
"...but as soon as that flag drops, I wonder what kind of enraged animals law school will breed."
I'm worried about that, but I'm more worried that I'll become one jackal among many in response. It is easy for me to stand on my moral high ground right now, but in the face of unbridled competition, fear, jealousy, pettiness, vindictiveness, groupthink, gossip, and immaturity it is hard to say how I will respond. I certainly hope to be the bigger person. But frankly I don't know if I will.
I agree with you that no one will want to come chargin out of the gates. No one will want to be the first to admit that "Yes, I'll be the bad guy. Yes, I'll be the one to screw you all over willingly so that I can ensure my own success." No one will say it, but they never have to. Actions speak louder then words. But it follows that we always see the faults in others clearly, but out own failings are always hidden from us.
I'm figuring that sh*t hits the fan the third week. After that...feeding time at the jackal house.
Power to your cause Wills. Sounds like you will become a good colleague in the future.
