I would address them as youreally see them...

"Thank you Mr. [email protected], your disparaging remarks where extremely appreciated..."

I wouldn't waste my time on something like this, I've thrown away every Thank You card I've ever received. If you really want to thank them, set up a lunch date and foot the bill...

Check back a few threads, theres another discussion thread on this topic that will be more informative than starting a new one...

Current Law Students / Re: Should I file Bankruptcy...
« on: July 29, 2006, 12:23:22 AM »

It's really unfortunate that you can't file for bankruptcy, get rid of the mortgage and keep the house. For example, before 1997 it was possible to file for bankruptcy, get rid of student loans and keep & use the degree. Well, I guess that's because a degree is just a "piece of paper," less valuable than a house .. :)

I heard a new law will be passed giving lenders the right to require schools granting the degree to revoke the latter if you default on your student loans.

That's pretty reasonable...

Current Law Students / Re: Rev = Erapitt

Erapitt is about to be a GW 1L. That's who Erapitt is. All these conspiracy theories are ridiculous. You guys need to get a life and stop speculating or spreading rumors about who is or could be Erapitt. Leave the dude alone. You wouldn't like it if some annonymous person who doesn't even know you were constantly on online message boards saying you're this and that. Just as others don't harass you online, but rather debate the substance of your posts, have some respect and self-dignity by not harassing others. Let him be. If he says something that annoys or offends you, write about the actual substance of it rather than personally attacking someone you do not know. Winning an online fight is like saying you're the smartest kid w/ down syndrome. That's the only kind of award you're ever going to win by personally attacking someone online. If, instead, you debate the substance of their posts, you will be given the respect of others. Personally, I think the latter is much better.

Only passive-agressive losers argue online...

Current Law Students / Re: Moot Court v. Law Review
« on: July 25, 2006, 09:00:01 PM »
If you had to pick one, LR will serve you best in job prospects/judicial clerkship opportunities. Moot court is much more practical if you want to be a litigator. However, several of the research, analytical, writing, Bluebooking, and editing skills that you learn as a member of law review are also useful for moot court. Most of your moot court experience will involve researching an issue and writing a brief. Of course, you will eventually prepare to argue your brief, but for many competitions the brief is worth at least half of your score.

Good answer...  ;D

In other words, it depends...
