I'd never heard of the term until I got on this board... and yeah, it just clicks. How do you spot a gunner in a class?

Journeyman, I am dumbfounded as to how you got into IU and W&L with your numbers. 155 LSAT and you applied to Vanderbilt? Honestly?

So..........are there any good gunners?  I mean, are there any know-it-alls who actually do know it all and move the class along?  (which i don't think i would like either...too fast is just as bad as too slow)


they are much easier to tolerate when intelligent words come out of their mouths.  and, you can always count on them when the prof is like "anyone?"  because if they don't, then he'll pick somebody

so they do have some value.

Yeah--I always like the person who raises his hand when no one else wants to.  That does move things along, especially when the person provides a correct answer.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

You see, what you're describing is the teacher's pet. When I think of a gunner, I think of some quiet guy in the corner who doesn't share notes and who absolutely destroys the curve.
