why do you assume that people who say "third tier toilet" are people who did nothing in college but study etc? this seems to be totally unjustified. there are plenty of people who did pretty well in college, on the lsat, know how to party and still say things like "third tier toilets" etc
I don't assume anything. I KNOW that people who use the term third tier toilet have 0 social/people skills... and this fact is evident from the language they choose to use. People should congratulate ANYONE who attends ANY law school, not degraded simply becuase someone views the school they attend to be of lesser quality. Further, anyone who attempts to defend or justify the phrase or its use is an ass.

When you say "people skills", it should mean that you know how to deal with the vast range of people in the world. Different races, genders, sexuality, life experiences, expectations, education, etc. Generally, the people at college parties, especially in Bloomington, tend to be white males and females between the ages of 18-22 who have graduated from high school and will likely graduate from college. They are also normally not in the lowest end of the socio-economic scale. They also all have a couple of similar interests, namely parties, music, liquor, and socializing. So when you say people skills, I take that to mean that you've learned to deal with just about any person that you could possibly meet, and a college party just doesn't have that kind of diversity. Social skills is a better term for that. Learning how to be comfortable in a social situation.
Ok, lets take that for what it's worth. My point, again, was that people who use the term "third tier toilets" have neither people nor social skills... however you decide to define each. College parties would tend to make people more apt or prone to developing "social skills" outside of college if you follow your logic. Either way, there is an inherent benefit to interacting socially with large groups of people.

you know someone has to be drunk when they're singing Journey
As we digress.... Hell, I sing Journey when I am sober. The fact that he was singing face down in the grass just made it that much more funny.

this is for the original poster. You don't have to make excuses for your GPA. I would love to have a 3.39, and so would most people. I too spent 0 time in the library or studying and way too much time tapping kegs, but what is college for?
I wasn't making an excuse for that GPA, rather I said I was proud that I was able to achieve that number while having the best time of my life.
have no good stories about the LSAT, but here's one about JD.
One night me and a few freinds of mine were finishing our second 1/5th of Jack and Brian says "five bucks says I can finish this sh!t in one drink". There is about 8 solid shots left. We're like yeah, I'll chip in a buck to see this. Brian says "OK, one condition have some coke ready for me." Little does he know John has poured some Jack from another stash into a coke can. Yeah I know you can see where this is going. Brian goes to finish the Jack, and victory, but as he quickly chases it with coke (actually Jack) his body rejects it, and pretty much everything he had eaten in the last hour. All over the fricken wall he pukes - what a mess.
Here's another..... Once when I was all drunked up on Jack (smae freinds) I was paid fifty bucks to eat a burrito with catfood, sour cream, marinara, catsup, tobasco, mustard, and loads of other BS on it. Still, I got it all down, never threw up, and made fifty bucks..
(disclaimer - this was more than five years ago. I think between 18-21 I pretty much got all the crazy drinking out of my system, now I have such a low tolerance I'm buzzed from two drinks and usually stop there.)
I actually had a buddy who we bet to bong about 8 shots or so of JD. As soon as he finished, he looked around for about 2 seconds... and then proceeded to make a mess of himself. About 40 minutes later, we see him passed out in the grass singing the old song "Wheel in the sky keeps on turning"... this may be one of those stories where you actually had to be there... but it was great.

and yes... that comment about "college students are not people" is still baffling to me. I try not to think about it for more than 30 seconds because it makes my head hurt.

Happycat: Thanks for reading the post. I chose the name for the thread because I knew it's potentially offensive nature would draw more readers to it. I just wanted to let as many people as I could know that such language is not only rude, but also extremely naive as even those of us who are attending "third tier toilets" are to be commended along with every other future L1.

I have to say your comment, "Bourbon or not, after about 18 shots or so you end up getting 'asked to leave' local college town bars," was the most hilarious thing I've read in days. For some reason it struck me and I practically fell out of my chair. Thanks for the laugh
Glad I could be of service to ya.

Speaking of that... anyone have any "fun" stories of what they did after taking the LSAT. Like I said, I immediately started drinking and continued through the night. I was "asked" to leave several bars... but my buddies, being the good friends they are, continued to buy shots of JD.

Jack and I became really close after the LSAT. Bourbon or not, after about 18 shots or so you end up getting "asked to leave" local college town bars.
Next meeting with Mr. Daniels... post successful passage of the Bar Exam.

Good luck with Loyola. I am sure you will be more than pleased with your decision.
