Oh absolutely. The naivete of TLS 0L posters has decreased substantially, though its made TLS less interesting. I was just commenting that it seems like over the past few weeks there's been a small spat of silly statements in the midst of the otherwise downward trend.
Just work hard and be at the top of your class? That's borderline insulting to a 3L like me. Go read the Vale of Tears thread and try to say that again.
Really, just pick one statement I made and harp on it. Look at the bigger picture of what I was saying. I am a naive 0L. Weren't you once? Why don't you guys stop being assholes for two seconds and give some advice/recommendations/suggestions with out the insults and jabs? TLSers come off as dicks.
Your first post on this thread featured some extraordinarily poor reasoning and mentioned the "pretentious T14", implying that posters urging OP to do better for himself acted on elitism rather than fact. You subsequently repeated fallacies and misleading information that suggested Loyola New Orleans was a decent investment in any way, shape or form. This isn't you making "one statement", you made a half-dozen.
"Looking at the bigger picture" was exactly where you were wrong. Your fact-based claims were essentially correct, but omitted key information that would clearly demonstrate why Loyola is a terrible investment. Also, notice everyone else WAS trying to give advice before you came in here and started giving bad advice. Others have already calmly refuted your arguments as they stand.
Edit: Scooped by Romo. But I still think we can have fun with it. "Hey guys, apparently you should finish at the top of your class! Thank goodness this guy's here, who else could have possibly thought of that?"
