General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Drinking culture in LS

I don't care how liberated this world becomes - a man will always be judged by the amount of alcohol he can consume - and a woman will be impressed, whether she likes it or not.

Right, maybe when they're 21. I'm 30 now and can tell you I ceased being impressed quite a long time ago. Now it's just a huge, huge turnoff. I'd much rather be around a guy who stops drinking while he's ahead.

I hope I don't turn boring at 30... :(

Don't worry - it's more of a gradual decay than an overnight deterioration.   ::)

wait until the day you turn 30.  gradual my ass  :D

I'm already there.  Bought the t-shirt.


Are you taking anything for the arthritis?
Grain! :o

Everyone seems to forget the minimum payment option, and the consolidation and refinance options.  Even if yous start with a low salary; $150K in student loans is still cheaper than $150k in a mortgage note.  Your return on investment is greater than buying a house, and your risk of total loss is less. Student loans ar nothing to worry about.  I sell $250,000 houses to people with 50k salaries and they still take vacations, still eat well, buy thier prferred cars, and don't live from paycheck to paycheck.

You all just fear $150K because you're not used to thinking in 6 figure debt.  With proper management, and planning ther is nothing to worry about even if you only make $30k after L.S..

Sounds like: as we pull out our troops we'll establish a proxy war there much like we have done elsewhere, and will do again.  This will be a proxy war agaings Iran since it's becoming evident they are financing, and supplying Al-queda, and the new Taliban.

You aren't trying to make a point, you just enjoy saying "testicle pluck", don't you, Cal.

titcr. Otherwise, I'm the one commenting about the person who questions the motivation of the person plucking his/her testicles.

In either case, you enjoy saying testicle pluck.

Is it the "pluck" or the "testicle" that you prefer, Cal?

whose testicle and who's doing the plucking?
Whoah that's a whole new dimension.

Hopefully like his mentor, Scalia.

You mean a self righteous pinhead?

As far as the article goes...
I think it makes some very good points and some not so good points. One thing that has changed quite a bit is debt to salary ratio. Unless you do biglaw, 150+k in debt really is untenable. He dismisses the debt issue, but cites figures of less than half of what students are under today.

It's not true that $150K+ is untenable unless you do biglaw. The median American salary is <$50K and one can easily pay back their debt on a lesser salary than biglaw and still end up with $50K to take home.
I agree.

Who is more pathetic, he who plucks his testicles or he who questions the motivation behind the testicle-plucker?
Definately the one who plucks.  That's gonna cause a rash.

I went to a Thursday night Bar Review when I was visiting my school.  It was a really awesome environment and everyone was very sociable... but no one was drunk.  And when I asked, they all said they usually go home sometime between 12 and 1:30.  Not quite party animals.

I'm going to miss undergrad.
They go home and get drunk in private (with thier closest friends) to avoid embarrassment. Remember it's a small community.  If you make 1 mistake everyone will know, and everyone will remember for the whole 3 years and beyond... :-X

It's probably going to morph into something like a combination of international law and maritime law, but for space.
