I'm sorry you didn't get into the school you wanted to go to, but thats no reason to take it out on others; next time try to emulate those you consider "prestige whores."

You go to a better school than me.  Oh, good one, you really got me.  And with that, why are you on LSD instead of XOXO? 

*shrug*  I could transfer to Berkeley, the school I really wanted to go to.  Or GULC to hang out with Lily, who unlike you is actually cool, or even *gasp* Michigan or CCN.  I'm happy with where I'm at, and with my career outlook based on my class rank at my school.  If other similarly situated students want to transfer to Chicago or Columbia or maybe even Harvard, great, I wish them the best wherever they end up.

Thats a good question.

This is true.

Enjoy Minnesota.




And the douchebaggery continues.



See how the REAL opinions come out when someone calls you on it?  You elitist prick.

Idealistic belief in the power and importance of public education. Other than that, my Dad is a teacher's union activist and I was brought up with that influence. I believe strongly in the duty of a just society to assure opportunity, and as a (relatively) talented person, I think it's goood for talented people to patronize the system. If everyone smart is "sorted" out of public education and cherry-picked into private institutions, it dilutes the quality of the public education's student body and thus the strength and viability of the programs.

That said, I'm no saint, and this is by no means an OVERRIDING need. I applied to some private schools, as well, just in case... but a law school's public status earns it a lot of points with me. (Yes, I realize how strange that is.) That's just my preferred result.

Please forgive the naive question, but why is it important for "smart" students to remain at a public institution?  I'm not quite sure I see how their absence would harm the strength/viability of the programs.  It seems to me that the strength of a school comes from its abilities to produce excellent graduates far more so than it comes from attracting excellent applicants.

His argument makes sense if you buy the idea that a class that has smart students will be a better learning experience because they will help facilitate and improve the discussion.  Especially in a place like law school you learn just as much from your peers as you do from the professor. 


i'd prefer to learn from someone who actually knows what the hell they are talking about, rather than another 1L.  especially the ones who talk in class.  :P

Gosh, there does seem to be a lot of anger on LSD these days.   :-\
I can only hope that the day when it will all be directed my way is almost upon us...I've got a salty turn of phrase or two that I've been sitting on...




This is interesting.  Lets assume you are right and I am only preoccupied with money, my alma mater, etc.  What gives you the right to dictate what I should or should not be preoccupied with?  As long as my desires don't affect/hurt you it really isn't any of your concern.  Last I checked this was still the land of the free not a socialist farce.

Your douchebaggery is truly epic.

As is your idiocy.

AHA, and finally, we have it! I criticize you, therefore I am an "idiot". I don't know what your definition of an "idiot" is, but I doubt anyone on this board meets that definition in the mind of any rational and objective observer. What is it about what I've said that gives you evidence that I am an "idiot"? I'm curious.

I don't really expect an answer to that, of course. The truth is simple: you are a buffoon. A pompous ass. With such an inflated belief in your own preeminent self-worth as to render any criticism of your person *blasphemous*. It strikes you as outrageous that anyone so inconsequential as ME should PRESUME to comment your character. In your mind, nobody could possibly find anything less than perfection in your pristine, lily-white ass.

So, you write me off as an "idiot". It saves you the trouble of subjecting yourself to even a cursory critical examination. And it allows you to continue under the assumption, which you have held all along, that you are smarter, more righteous, and more worthwhile than me. And everyone else on this board who agrees with me, I gather.

As the thread has progressed, you have responded to other people's criticisms by become progressively MORE smug, MORE arrogant, MORE self-righteous, and MORE elitist. You continue to present the thread's best argument AGAINST your own cause.

I certainly HOPE you're not this insufferable away from the comfortable anonymity and immunity of the internet. If so, I grieve for every person who has the grave misfortune of knowing you.



This is embarrassing...you call him a feminine hygiene product, he responds in kind and then you go off like a desperate martyr that's being frogmarched to the guillotine...COME ON....enough of this "right-hand-doesn't-know-what-the-left-is-doing" behaviour...so you can flame him, but it's beyond conception that he could be flaming you?  Everything he says must be gone over with a fine tooth comb with an eye toward unearthing contradictions, empirical failings, symptoms of smarminess and YES the always amusing (if by that you mean lame beyond belief...demerits all around folks) spelling boo boos...but you should get by because you're standing in the crowd and "hey, everyone else has a stone..."?   

Quote
You Sir, are a feminine hygiene product...
What's that...an idiot you say?
You knave, how dare you impugn my character?...
Stand here and cower in the face of my self-righteous rage....


Wow, this thread got out of hand.  I was just saying that he was a prestige whore in denial and possibly retarded, and I feel like that pales in comparison to some of the hatred out there now. 

I'm terribly amused by guessing right on calling him a Bushie, though.  :D

Don't be coy...you loved it...

Edit: for messy quoting.

You're right, Brer. So what?


And what role do you assume in this affair?

Or just honest and lacking the pretense of assuming I have any noble reason for being here.

I doubt "naive", though. Are you starting in with it now?
