Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Third Tier Toilets...
« on: April 10, 2005, 11:41:36 AM »
You shouldn't assume that anyone who attends a better school then a t3 spent their college career in the library and is devoid of all social skill. I spent almost all of my 5 years of college f-ing around and such and graduated with a horrendus gpa (way below 3.0). I then spent the first term of my 5th year in the library studying really hard for the lsats. Now im going to a law school in the top of t2.

Several people seemed to have missed the group I was referring to with my opening post.  The people I have selected as having little or no social skills are those who use the phrase "third tier toilets" and NO ONE ELSE.  It is obvious from their language that they lack such skills.  No one who knew how to treat another human being would degrade them based on where they went to law school.  Those students who have stellar GPA's and refrain from using such language obviously DO HAVE people skills and are not the target of this post.

Congrats on Penn State Kilroy.  I also consider anyone who takes the initiative to attend and succeed in law school, no matter which school it is, as a winner.  I look forward to next year... most likely going to attend DePaul but will strongly consider Kent if accepted... and look forward to interacting with everyone I meet.

haha, jack definately is T1... and i seriously did drink tons immediately after the LSAT.  Sounds like the two of us would be able to manhandle any T3 basher and all of his T3 bashing friends.

I would place a very large wager that NONE of the people who use the term would ever say it to someone attending a t3 in person... especially me 6'2 225.  It would be a short conversation.   :D

Yes ilsox,  but for those of us who frequent this board it is annoying to see "third tier toilet" every other phrase.

Hello.  First of all, I know that this thread will draw a lot of flak and I am fine with that.  The reasoning behind this post is to open some poster's eyes to the realities of life. 

It is a shame many people refer to schools in the third tier as "third tier toilets" and even worse for the fourth tier.  Many people choose to go to third tier schools for different reasons.  Perhaps the most obvious reason would be the fact that these individuals chose to have a little fun in college as opposed to hiding within the depths of the school library for four years.  Personally, I am happy with my 3.39 UGPA as I was able to achieve this number while having the most fun of my entire life.  I know it may be cliche, but college definately IS the best four years of your life, and you will never get a chance to relive them.  Further, while those of us who chose to have a good time were socializing, we were able to develope something many of you apparently lack.... People Skills. 

It is blatently obvious that those of you who refer to t3 schools as third tier toilets do not know how to interact with people, let alone respect them.  How do you plan to succeed post-law school if you constantly look down upon people you deem to be less accomplished than yourself.  Many of your future clients will not be the "cream of the crop" and if you constantly scoff at them, they will become the clients of a "third tier toilet" graduate soon enough. 

Please don't take this post as an attack on those individuals who have been accepted to top schools.  I applaud your efforts and am sure you will succeed in the future.  I simply wish to discourage the use of the phrase "third tier toilet" as if the individuals attending these schools are worse people than anyone else.

I just think this topic rubbed me the wrong way.  I have no problem with someone asking another to look over a personal statement and check for grammatical errors, but when someone finds the nerve to ask others how to write her own letter of recommendation I must protest.  I have news for you, no one will be able to hold your hand throughout law school. 

I'm sorry if this seems negative, but I wholeheartedly believe this to be wrong on every level. 

I just want to throw in my 2 cents.  Despite the fact that Marshall is t4, it seems that their graduates have been able to make a very comfortable living for themselves post graduation.  I realize this is anecdotal, but I interned for several Marshall graduates this past summer in Chicago... and these individuals told me that after you lock up your first job, if you do well no one will care where you received your J.D. from. 

I would take up the offer from any Chicago school you are able to get accepted to, as there is ample opportunity for law practicioners in this area.

The real issue here is not whether or not this action is ethical, but rather that this individual is not only drafting her OWN letter of recommendation but also asking others on how to write it.  She went as far as asking for "examples" of good passages to put in her own letter.

Now, I don't profess to be a genius, but it seems to me that this person will have some serious issues in law school.

I would bet money you were the kind of kid who went through college with no friends and enjoyed playing Magic The Gathering with your dorm's RA.  Get a life, enough said.
