Again, it is still a word.  

Florida, you are a moron.  The difference between you and I is you get heated over this stuff while I sit back and laugh.  At the end of the week I have a nice paycheck, free school, and a beautiful wife to go home to.  You, on the other hand, have your school loans and lack of job options ahead of you.  Go back to your little dorm apartment and play with your girlfriend Jill the Sock and quit acting tough on the internet.

ir·re·gard·less    ( P )  Pronunciation Key  (r-gärdls)
adv. Nonstandard
Regardless.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Probably blend of irrespective, and regardless.]
Usage Note: Irregardless is a word that many mistakenly believe to be correct usage in formal style, when in fact it is used chiefly in nonstandard speech or casual writing. Coined in the United States in the early 20th century, it has met with a blizzard of condemnation for being an improper yoking of irrespective and regardless and for the logical absurdity of combining the negative ir- prefix and -less suffix in a single term. Although one might reasonably argue that it is no different from words with redundant affixes like debone and unravel, it has been considered a blunder for decades and will probably continue to be so.

It is still a word fuctard.  If you are going to insult me at least get it right.

Florida, please for the love of GOD relax man!  Don't make a federal case out of what Erapitt says.  I can see the smoke rising off your keyboard as you furiously type a rebuttle.  It's not worth getting all bent out of shape.

Ha, don't worry.  I am far from bent out of shape, just burning a little time.  I have had a few encounters with Erapitt, and he has yet to offer anyone on this board a word of encouragement.  I just get a kick out of pointing out to everyone that he isn't even a law school student, yet acts like he knows what he is talking about.

I mean, really, we are in a thread about law school transfers and he is telling someone who has actually transfered that they are in 'candyland.'  He hasn't even started law school, much less had an opportunity to transfer or heard anything from people who have actually done so.

Yes, it is impossible for me to know more about law school or the legal profession because I am not currently enrolled.  I only live in reality and work in the real world with lawyers everyday.  

Silly me.  I concede.  Florida, you are the best man, I wish I could be a nancy boy cupcake like you....

Nevermind, I like being employed.

Yeah, well there is still some correlation between LSAT, College GPA, and law school success whether you want to admit it or not.  To sit here and say that someone that has been sub par in everything they have done academically is going to be a shining star in law school is ridiculous.

You are a moron.

Who said anything about being 'a shining star?'  I see you are keeping up with the 'make up irrelevant crap' strategy.

To the contrary, I believe someone said that all you need is top 50% of your class, meaning that he wouldn't need to be a 'shining star.'  Man, your conceptual grasp of an argument is on par with a 4th grader.

I highly doubt top half will work for a transfer on a regular basis.  Also, based on past history, like a 2.7 or whatever subpar GPA he had in SPANISH when his first language is SPANISH, I think odds are in my favor that he doesn't even hit the top half.

Transferring within T2 is pointless and maybe even to a T1 if it is not a T20 (it wouldn't make that much of a difference, still a very regional degree).  The reality is there is a very very very slim chance he would ever score well enough to do a T20 transfer.

Not coincidentally, Erapitt is barely on the cusp of T20.  If he was T14 he would be saying you were wasting your time unless you can transfer into T14, but in his current situation he believes anyone who prefers T14 is arrogant.  Remember now, a T1 transfer is pointless unless it is T20, but anyone who prefers T14 is elitist.  What a joke.





To the thread starter: I wouldn't worry so much about rankings, worry more about geography.  Go where you want to practice.  You will be surprised how limiting geography is.  My highschool buddy goes to South Carolina (ranked 97) and he has a much better chance of getting a job anywhere in SC than someone at a T1 school in Florida or VA.


Florida, irregardless of you being a total tool,


EWW EWWW EWW!! "Irregardless" is not a word!! The correct word is REGARDLESS!!

Straight from Meriam Webster jerkoff.

A guy in my class was telling me that his friend transfered from UMiss to UVA.  From what I can tell, law school transfer is easy to do if one is so inclined.

Yeah, if they are an exception in the top 5%.  Hell, UVA even asks for your LSAT score if you apply as a transfer.


Anyway, florida, I am not even going to discuss this with you anymore.  You just get the threads locked once you get your last word in like a child.

Go back to living your life as a bigot.  I'm surprised you will even stick up for LL considering he is latino after reading your previous comments about the "non english speaking criminals in NYC."

He has repeatedly been below average up until this point, what makes you think law school will be any different?  News flash: Law school is more difficult than undergrad.  Also, his LSATs were well below average as well. 

Your assertations are based on candyland bullshi# and nothing more.

Says the guy who isn't even in lawschool...

Lawschool isn't more difficult than undergrad, IMO.  That is coming from someone who has actually been to lawschool, as opposed to Erapitt, but take it for what its worth.

The hard part about lawschool is figuring out how to study, it isn't like anything you have done before and they don't tell you how to prepare.  Once you figure out how it works, it is easy.  I have done less work every semester and my grades keep going up.  After your first semester, law school is substantially less work than undergrad if you had any kind of demanding major.  If you majored in History at Easy State University, it might be harder than undergrad.

Florida, irregardless of you being a total tool, you can't argue with me that it makes sense to transfer within a T2 for any reason other than locality.  I understand if he wants to move back home, but he should be greatful he even got into law school.  There is no debating that.  His grades are below average in a subject that is his first language and his LSAT is subpar.  I think he should be damn happy he got into a T2 and do the best he can with it.

Barely on the cusp of the T20 is still good enough to give me far better job opportunities than the "second best school in florida," jerkoff.

Whether you want to admit it or not, T1 outside of the top 25 or so, and anything above is going to be a regional education.  Is there anything wrong with that?  No, but don't sit here and argue with me about how your school is so great when in reality, it isn't.

reality check: it's not going to take anywhere near top 10% to transfer w/in tiers.  he'll have a chance if he's in the top half of the class.  tier2-tier2 is not that hard guys.  i believe latinlord has an above average ug gpa, if he maintains THAT level of academic achievement he will be able to transfer to temple.  why is this some pipe dream?  heck, he has two years to bring his gpa up to top 50% because he's going PT.  odds are in his favor.  

also, a transfer to his home state is a very practicle goal when one considers the disparities in cost of attendance between the two schoos.  is it likely that he will make top 10% and transfer to penn, no. but it's just as unlikely that he will find himself in the bottom 10%.  why?  the curve.  and it's because of the curve that he has a very good shot at transferring to temple.

I need to tell this "curve" stuff to the 17.9% of my 1L class who won't be here in the fall.  Maybe they all transferred to Penn  ::)


not to mention, I'll bet my left nut that his undergrad is somewhere you've never heard of.

If your school has a 17.9% dropout rate then you must go to a real shi#y law school.  Most schools have around a 98-99% graduation rate.
