General Board / Re: are your classmates snobby a**holes?

I concur.  Even though I don't know Jacy85, I have seen her posts and it appears to me like she's a carrying a grudge of some sort.  Her posts are hostile almost to the point where she's really uptight and anal about something going on in her life.  Who knows!  We all have issues.  It's just sad that we have to bring them to a message board and take it out on other people.


Listen Ronnie,

If you saw a picture of how pale, ugly as f*k and chubby this chick is- you'd be hatin too.  I saw her posts on the other said of the forum.  This girl has some serious unresolved issues.  I can't believe that she 'supposedly' just started law school.

Pay no attention to her man.  It's just a cry for help.

jacy:
why are you a hater? this is a MESSAGE BOARD...not a legal memo. i dont put much effort into my diction on an informal message board. do you say LIKE alot? is that why you are offended. i dont think i said anything that offensive to induce so much hostility. next time i will make sure to send my post to a former english professor to make sure it's appropriate for lawschooldiscussion. anyway, im not going to further defend my message board exposition. hope your classes are doing well. i wish you the best of luck!

I just would love to be the class-elected speaker at graduation.


I think Law Review and Moot Court would rank ahead of SBA as far as employers are concerned.  You could do more than 1, just make sure you don't stretch yourself too thin. 


Although I'm interested in what Mary said and have similar, albeit distant, feelings about stuff like graduation, I would like to hear more about what people think about SBA v. Moot Court v. Law Review and can you do more than one (although probably never all three)?  ::Longest run-on sentance ever, over::  Thanks for the help!

No problem troll.

Yeah and you're obviously a troll judging by your last 4 posts that are ridiculous one liners.

Obviously she is a psycho.

Thank you for coming down to my level. That was easy.

Because it's something I've always wanted to do.
What's the problem w/that???


Why are you so obsessed w/speaking at graduation?  You're not even a 1L yet and already you're thinking of graduation??? ???

Thanks klaw!

Usually the president of the SBA is a 3L, so you have plenty of time for that. SBA basically doles out the money and runs some happy hours. I think that most lawyers realize that, so if you're looking for prestige, you're probably better off gunning for moot court or law journal. SBA people at our school are the gregarious. I think the speech thing really depends on the school- I think at my school all the speeches are given by those who have excelled in particular areas at the school, be it in academics, journal writing, oral advocacy or public interest. The SBA might have some role in commencement, but I'm not aware of it.

Raise your hand a lot??!!! Hahaha.  Hilarious.

Where do you go to law school Ivy Man?

No need to worry Kelly.  You'll have plenty of practice once you start law school.  Just raise your hand a lot ;) and participate in moot court.

I seriously hate environments like that where people get bitchy and take their stress and anger out on others because they're overwhelmed.  Hopefully I can deal w/people like that in law school and won't let it get to me.

Did you notice the stress level of your fellow classmates going way up the roof during finals?


Beyond what was already said, The hardest thing was remaining calm when everyone else was freaking out about this and that.  I kept telling myself I have never NOT gotten something done that wasnt at least good quality work, so I knew I would be alright. The second hardest thing was dealing with all the drama that people at my law school brought up. 

Other than that, a previous post hit the nail on the head.  Knowing what effort equates to what, where you stand among people wth equal or better academic records, is by far the most difficult thing to deal with. 

I ended up in the middle of my class, but I feel I came into my own at about the second to last final.  The summer class I took I ended up with a A-.  Only 6 people got a A, so I am confident my effort and new system of preparation correlated to higher grades, and was not due to a second year grade inflation.

Yeah the stress levels went up, I noticed alot of stress during first semester especially.  I pretty much got so sick of everything and segregated myself during finals to not even deal with it.

So law school is basically high school but with lots of intense studying and a lot more hard work?
