Don't be intolerant...


I was actually planning on joining both the Federalist Society AND the American Constitution Society. I'm all about the tolerance.

But... since you were insulting my school I had to get at ya a little.

Georgetown isn't overrated, but 0L's perception of job prospects are usually more rosy than the truth (i.e. Georgetown is closer to UCLA/Vandy in placement than the T10).

If you think Georgetown is overrated, what school would you put ahead of it?

IMO, there are no schools behind Georgetown that should be ahead of it.....so it's not overrated.

If, on the other hand, you're talking about laymen's perceptions of Georgetown, then I would say it's overrated.

While I agree it lags behind the T10, it is closer to them than UCLA/Vandy.

But you can speak intelligently as to how 0l's perceive things?

Honestly, you are the worst poster on this board.  You add nothing to any conversation other than try to pick fights.  Like I've told you before, you are no better than wiimote. 

But you can speak intelligently as to how 0l's perceive things?

Sometimes I do sometimes I don't.  And I'm nowhere near as bad as Wii-tard.

And you didn't address my question.

You never do, you either call people flame, d-bags, retards, or question what they say.  And yes, I can speak intelligently about the perceptions of some 0L's.  Many think T14=Biglaw, when it is not true outside HYS, if it is even true for them.

Sometimes I do sometimes I don't.  And I'm nowhere near as bad as Wii-tard.
