well, look at it this way JD...give it maybe 28 more posts and you'll understand everything
It's been a while and I'm not 100% sure when people started dropping off. If I'd have to guess, I'd say once school started for everyone at that time, Fall 2004, people started dropping off either that semester or the next, Spring 2005. I'm guessing the reason is either school got in the way or after a while, message boards get kind of old.
If you look at Downy's profile, he logged in last on September 14, 2005, Fall 2005, so I guess he's still around. But i'd have to say it was way earlier than that, when the bulk of the cat fighting came to quick death.
I noticed you are at Michigan? If I remember correctly, I thought that is where Downy is?
what about transferring from a tier 1 to a top-of-tier 2 school? How well would you have to do? any ideas?
so you're actually transferring down tiers?
i guess i would have to say top half. someone proposed on a thread somewhere that even if you are transferring down (or within tiers) that you should at least be within the top half of your class; the reasoning being that law schools don't really want a "mediocre" student, even if you're transferring down. this seems to make sense.
