2LMan, I haven't been to this board in a while, and I come back to you writing 3 more flame posts. I don't care if you say it's not a flame, and I don't care who you know who went to Duquesne or any other school out there. You are just a loser who goes to other schools' child boards to try to act intelligent and elitist. Guess what? I live in DC and I know a lot of people at GW. Let me tell you, that school is not perfect. In fact, it's got it's fair share of problems (not to mention blatant political bias). As far as jobs are concerned, going to GW doesn't guarantee you sh*t in DC. Between the Ivies, UVA, Georgetown, William and Mary, George Mason, etc. you have plenty of competition. To look at it from a different angle, I might be going to Duquesne, but it's all in who you know and people skills more than anything. This includes class rank, law review and all those other stats. Do you know people? Who knows, but I do, and I'd love to come back to DC after law school and wipe that sh*t-eating, smug smirk off your face when you didn't get the BigLaw job you wanted. Can you talk to people effectively? Probably not because you are that guy who talks a mean game from behind a computer screen. I don't care where you go, I (and many others from Tier 3 and 4's) will out-interview you any day of the week. So shove your gpa up your ass.The cool thing is that I don't even want to go into BigLaw. In fact, I'm not even going to practice law in the traditional fashion. But thank you for your concern as to how I should be spending my money. You really should have gone to business school instead.So in conclusion, no I'm not impressed you go to GW, and I'm not impressed you pay more than $1200 in rent. You are a feminine hygiene product, and should either get a life, go to GW's board, or go to some other school's child board to try to make yourself feel better there.
Thorc and Mike I agree with what you both said. Of course grades (and the school you attend) matter- they matter a lot. It just seems like a lot of people on these forums treat grades and the school you attend like the end-all be-all of life. I am just tired of the elitism and egos I see by people on these boards. There is no need to talk down to others if your school is in a higher tier. You're right, it was pretty intense, and I'm sorry about that; I was just too fired up. But I do think I speak for a lot of people when I tell people like 2LMan to get off his high horse. He is just a microcosm of many of the people on this site.
