Are all LLMs gunners? I don't remember that being the case 1L year. Do they eventually have the gunnerishness drained from them?

Yes. No.

In Trusts and Estates, there are several people that have a 95% market share of all comments.  The percentage and number ratio is even worse in Tax, which seems to be dominated by three people.

The same people who dominated in my tax class last year also happen to dominate in our T&E class. Odd.

Surely, it must be a conspiracy to annoy.

How is that possible? I'm not even in T&E.

You must have misread. I didn't say the same people who skipped 95% of the tax classes speak in T&E. Sorry for the confusion.

I had no idea some of the 2Ls in here were still posting.  Back on the saddle!

Anyone have any supplement recommendations for Secured Transactions with Baird or Landes' Trademarks and Unfair Competition class?

You and I are law firm buddies, Hipcat. Different cities though.

I'm also firm buddies with you two.  But in the general sense that I will be working at a firm.  ITE, I guess it's a good a fraternity as any.

Do 2Ls have any tips about getting offers?  I'm not that worried, but I would like to sharpen my Westlaw skills or something if it helps.

Just don't be a weirdo; even ITE it goes a long way.

Oh yeah, and learn how to bluebook. One of my fellow summers didn't know what bluebooking was (apparently at some schools they use something completely different) and the partner who gave her the first assignment was a little pissed with her citations.
