^ perhaps the greatest advice will come when you actually enter the halls of a law school. 0Ls have rarely been able to offer practical or (practicable) advice for actual law students.

I've only read 2-3 of xman's posts in this thread, but they are all that have been needed for me to conclude that he is a certifiable social retard.

I feel sorry for his classmates and anyone else who comes into contact with him.

Whether a flame or not, here is the proper response: Thank them for their valuable input, this will help you realize early on why you may have problems in interviews, etc. You have a few years to fix this issue, work on it.

There are plenty of people who like to participate in class and do so without coming off as gunners. To be a gunner, not only do you have to participate a lot, but you have to do so with an irritating attitude that you are above everyone else.

Saw dashrashi's LSN site. Since she seems to use profanity, one could say that HYP does not necessarily mean class or refinement.

Last semester I amply and vastly participated in class and I could decipher my classmates' opinion of said participation.

How best to respond to these (to put it generously) rather immature individuals?

tell your mommy on them.

I study harder, longer.  Don't let other people get to you.  Your law school grades are easily the most important things in your life.  They determine everything: self-worth, intelligence, prospects.  That's why law students are intimidated, stressed, and jumpy.

I mean this with all due respect, but why do you keep trying so hard to sound like an ass? Is it an attempt at humor? I honestly don't get it.
