Anyone giving a sh*t about being considered gunnerish needs a pair of balls anyway. It's your life, the other students are your competition and in less than 3 years none of them will mean sh*t to you.
Actually they'll be the beginning of your professional network and will likely be the people best able to help you bring in business, either for yourself, or your firm, which the sooner and better you can do it, the better it is for your career.

How would my class mates be able to bring me business any better than I would myself? And why would my classmate working at Skadden help me get business at Shearman?

Because eventually your classmate at Skadden will be working in-house. I see it happen all the time- people at my firm bring in new clients by keeping in touch with classmates from law school who either work as counsel for large corporations or started their own companies.

So assuming we can resist being douchebags, should we get cards or not?

You never know when a connection is going to come in handy - go in with an open mind!

Certainly, but if someone wants to discard me for getting school business cards, I say screw'em :p
