I have an agenda, which I poorly attempt to mask as cynicism. It's as old and conservative as the Book of Ecclesiastes or as liberal and eccentric and the teachings of Diogenes of Sinope. I believe you'll make more friends and convince more people of your point of view if you avoid ad hominem attacks, yet I wonder at night why I have no friends It couldn't be because I make illogical jumps and assume that because someone holds the viewpoint that scholarships are fine the way they are, as opposed to a more socialist viewpoint like the one I have, they are right-wing fundamentalists who oppose all things good in the world. I have poor logic abilities, which is the primary reason I was unable to get a good scholarship- I am therefore bitter at the entire system. (Re-read the thread carefully, starting with my response, and you'll see my bitterness and ideology bleeding through everything that I say.)
Suck it 0L. I submit our little debate to a jury of our peers. I think you'll find our fellow forumers will agree with me that you are a jackass. Have a nice day. PS: I am not the OP. I actually have a nice schoolership.
I'll share a secret: LIFE ISN'T FAIR!Try to think like good old Judge Posner. Schools give out Schoolerships in their own self interest. 1L scholarships are distributed to entice high LSAT scoring students to matriculate in order to benefit the school's ranking. 2/3L scholarships are given to entice good students to stay at the school so that the school will have impressive graduates. It is not necessary to give such a large scholarship to 2/3Ls because they basically already own you.I know it's total bull, but that's how America rolls. Your law school education would be almost free if you lived in Europe. Socialized education! But Americans prefer this Ayn Rand, Wild West, Personal Autonomy nonsense
