Incoming 1Ls / Re: What do you mean by "gunner"
« on: January 19, 2008, 03:29:24 PM »
I have a gunner in my LSAT prep class.  This person doesn't really ask that many questions but every time the instructor makes a point she has some little comment like, "Oh I see that"  "Oh thats good" "I get that"  for 3 hours and 45 minutes minus breaks.

Maybe that isn't a traditional gunner, but wow is it annoying. ;D

I don't see anything in this scenario that isn't in violation(?)

I would think that the nativity scene makes the denomination of the church irrelevant.  It is essentially a gov. agent sanctioning a specific religious belief.  The chaplain spending his own money is immaterial.

My brief thoughts on the subject.

What was that movie where a bunch of women sat around and created a laundry list of things they wanted in a man?  Then one of them was asked "Well what do you look for now?"  "I just want him to be breathing!"

Always thought that was funny.

My partner's moving with me, wherever I decide to go. But because we both want to stay in the PNW and not live in a big big city, we really haven't had too much strife over it at all.

I am suspicious that he is going along with this so affably because he is envisioning a future with a lawyering sugarmama. Which is fine with me as long as he learns to cook something more than burritos.
After slaving away at home all day, doesn't he deserve to be treated to a dinner out?   ;D

Thanks guys

I did go to the LSAC site and found the chart on Attrition.  Can I assume that the column labeled "Academic #" would be the number of people let go for poor grades?  I think the column next to it is labeled "Other #", would that cover transfers and the like?

Thanks for the first two.

On the last one, it's something I picked up from these boards.  Some talk about professors having to fail "x" amount of students to clean up the roster.  I guess that could be a function of the curve they use (somebody has to fail).  For a true bell curve I dont know how many people that would be.  While I cant imagine being in that group, it might be helpful if there were some numbers out there to look at for each school.

So I'm looking at this web page (that I found here):

What does OCI Employer stand for? (fourth column)

What is Ciolli TQS?

I've also heard some rumblings about schools dropping their "low" score students after the first year.  How does that work and is there a way I can see that information for every school?

Thanks for the help,
