Dude, that PS isn't that bad (for a rough draft anyway). If cleaned up properly with the correct prose, it could be a damn good essay that sets him apart from the other generic crap people send in. You guys are just hating on him cuz he's Greek. Get over it.

No, we're hating him because he's a feminine hygiene product and he doesn't even realize it. I'm amazed he got into anywhere with that PS, even if it was one of the worst law schools in the country. There's no way to clean that up, it's complete dog *&^%.

The fact that he's Greek means nothing beyond that it supports my theory that most Greek folk have *&^% for brains and act accordingly. Please do not defend this poor soul, lest you be lumped in with him.

You know I normally like your posts so I am sorry I have to do this, but I just want you to know...

You are a f-ing moron.

This has nothing to do with the essay anymore. Your ignorance about fraternity members and their impact on society is huge, mostly likely because you watched Animal House or Old School a bunch of times and conclude that is what Greek Life is all about. The average school has maybe one or two 'date rape feminine hygiene product' frats who ruin the images of the other respectable fraternities, who do have a positive impact not only to their schools but to their outside environment.

Yeah, THAT's why he didn't get into a good school. He had terrible GPA/LSAT. Not because of the essay.

The problem with the DTD guy is that he gives greek life a bad name. Some people might be a little uh, annoyed, that this goofball represents fraternities poorly. If you read the original thread on TLS, there's somebody that's one of the national guys for a fraternity, maybe even DTD, that is pretty critical of PreLawDelt for his representation of his fraternity.

Don't get me wrong, some (and by some I mean a lot) of the stuff in the essay needs to be taken out, and it's very rough. But the general framework isn't terrible. And I don't think writing an essay pertaining to Greek life is necessarily a bad idea.

As for my reaction: I took exception first of to the whole "OMG HAHAHAH this is the crappiest PS I've ever seen LOLOLOL" nature of this thread (it's not even close to the worst.. by college standards, it'd be a C-) and then to Ninja1's comment that overgeneralized fraternity members. I overreacted a little, which is likely due to the fact that this is like the millionth time I've had to defend Greek life (the only thing that ever shuts people up is when they actually meet the guys in my fraternity and find out they are friendly, inviting, ambitious guys, many of whom don't even drink. Of course, a year out of school and on a message board I can't really convey this anymore). For the record, there are some frats from my undergrad I just f-ing hated (and even more sororities). But the basic ideas and principles of Greek life are solid.

First, and most importantly, thank you. I tend to enjoy your work as well.

Anyway, look here male private part beater, I roll deep in the Greek scene. I just spent all day hanging out with a bunch of Greeks from my UG. In fact, I actually end up hanging out with those people a lot more than I'd like to, but the girlfriend and some of my better friends from UG are involved in Greek life, and that kind of drags me into the scene as well. I'm not real happy about it, but I deal with it.

On my comment that started this, understand that I'm not talking about a bunch of real, honest to god pieces of *&^% that date rape drunk bitches at parties and get up to other such *&^%. Those fuckers should be shot on sight. I'm talking about Greeks in general just being plain stupid and constantly doing dumb *&^%. I understand that virtually all Greek organizations participate in many good philanthropic activities and do help to build a school's spirit, but that doesn't make their members any less dumb. They're not necessarily bad people, they're just dumb and do dumb *&^%. Now, of course, this isn't ALL Greeks, just the average Greek, in my experience. They party harder, get the cops called more, get in more trouble, drink more, tend to blow off school more, and tend to do more general dumb *&^% than the average person. Again, they're not fundamentally bad people, they just have poor decision making mechanisms. Also, for some reason, they seem to have a very unfounded superiority complex. They're sort of like the desirable but pussified version of a street gang.

My opinion on Greeks has been well formed over several years, not several hours. And if PreLawDelt doesn't support my beliefs, I don't know what does.

He still got rejected from a few schools that he probably should have got picked up by. I think PLD is just the perfect storm of rejection.

A Black person in SF asked me if I wanted to buy crack once. It happened a few other times when I was in SF. I'm now pretty sure that most Black people in SF will sell me crack.
