Why don't law students ever female dog about the people who don't take it seriously and make fun of the ones who want to learn. Why is that? Law students seem to be the people who never outgrew middle school.
Gunners are the people that take up class time. Gunners feel the need to speak up with a question they have, or a hypothetical they thought of, or a comment they have, and they typically do this 3, 4, even 5 times during a class. You're not paying all this money to sit there and listen to some smart-@ss talk about his experience last summer as an intern with a senator when such and such a bill was introduced. Class also is not the time to be making up your own hypos and asking the professor about them; that belongs with your study group or office hours. Gunners also feel the need to ask the same question 2-3 times in a row, worded slightly differently each time, becuase they don't understand that if they're having trouble with a concept, they need to go to office hours and not waste my time. Gunners also volunteer to answer questions whether they've really thought through the question or not. If something pops in thier head that sounds good, the hand goes up, leading to an extra 10 minutes of the professor poking holes in the guy's answer because it was poorly thought out to begin with.People who ask legitmate questions, or answer the professor's question when they have something that's well reasoned and intelligent to say is fine, and they add a lot to the class. But gunners cross a line, and it wastes everyone else's time and money when they do. The longer it goes on, the more frustrating it gets, hence the hatred people have for these individuals.
