Anyone Read xoxoth?
« on: January 05, 2005, 12:06:09 PM »
Is it just me, or is everyone over there a bunch of <expletive> snobs?  Not everyone who applies to law school is like that, right?  (Mostly a rhetorical question- I have enough friends applying to/in law school to know the answer is no).

a lot of people here also post on xoxo.  I think both boards have their moments.

People are very quick to resort to name calling and personal attacks online... both here and on xoxohth (although moreso there)

I doubt the people who are like that on forums are actually like that in real life.

To answer both your questions: No, it's not just you. And I hope not.

Probably, but I've observed over there much more of an attitude that "law school isn't worth it unless you get into t14"

I think that attitude is offensive, true, but if you can get past it you can find some really useful information. I check both of these sites a million times a day. When the elitists and insiders hijack the thread I just move on. Ain't no thang.

I've never been over there before yesterday. I wanted to check out lexylit's Yale-250 word essay. If that thread is a typical example, i won't be going back anytime soon.

Sadly, it is. You should check out the comments related to Alicades (sp?) yale acceptance a couple days prior, too.  :P  :o

I hate that site because it doesn't let you see unread replies to your posts. DOWNY does not post there which means it sucks.
