And this is where I stopped reading.

Thanks for proofreading. Let me know if there are more typos.

This is poorly reasoned and poorly written. Good job.

Also, lol at "don't be misguided by losers". WTF does that even mean?

No offense broseph, but that was a train wreck of a post. If your post reflects your actual writing ability, and if your writing ability reflects your potential for success in lawl school, then I predict you are either in the bottom of your class or a total flame.

When people say they struck out at OCI when they really shouldn't have I think maybe they write/speak like this guy.

Well, I don't care what you say about my writing. I am in the bottom 1/3 and I did get an offer. But those are irrelevant. I like this school and want people to have the correct information.

I honestly am happy for you. And I think you probably have some very good points, but I couldnt get past the first couple sentences. Just FYI your message might get through to more people if it was a little more organized.

Dude, if he couldn't bother to learn to write well for good grades, he sure as hell won't do it to make things easier on folks on the Internet.

Actually, smart and pragmatic people would go with B - especially considering that law school teaches you very little about the actual practice of law. You also ignore the reality that harsh/strict curve means more competitive classmates - that may have devastating effects on people's educational experience.

Besides, a 4.0 always looks better than a 3.0, regardless of the curve.

This post further cemented my opinion of Chicago Law School and its students even though it was probably intended to do the opposite.

Is posting the FOB text in response to a meaningless wall of text still a bannable offense?

I have no opinion on UChi's curve. I, like most others around these parts, regard UChi highly.

That said, you're embarrassing your school (if you are, indeed, a student at UChi). Defensive, poorly written rants play so well on the interwebz. :roll:
