I don't know what's worse: thinking irregardless is a word, or thinking a 160 is a good lsat.

(or using G/G)


Irregardless is a word.

I don't care what some random internet sites (lol huffingtonpost) have to say. Irregardless is not a word. Period. No educated person would use the word. Only trailer park trash uses it.

I meant what I said and I said what I meant.

Only want to hear more about these if HLS is #1.

Um... Of that list, isn't Texas the only school that's already, y'know, "cracked" the T14 with the GULC tie a few years back?

Apologies for my burnt-orange-tinted glasses. But at least, we can safely say that Brianiac is one mistake not brought to you by the Lone Star State. Fly-over state with no strong legal markets?

On one hand, Brianiac be like:

Brianiac wrote:The "T14 or bust" mentality is carelessly perpetuated
Brianiac wrote:They don't require T14.
Brianiac wrote:That's why I'm going to school in D.C. even though I could have attended several T14s.
Brianiac wrote:Yes, the T14 or bust posters believe they are inherently better, and I am here to tell them they are not.
Brianiac wrote:I love how smug TLS is about non-T14 schools. I can almost here you sneering about my intelligence. Sorry that I decided to choose a school that fit my goals. Instead of just jumping at a T14 because it's a T14 like you did.


But then on the other hand:

Brianiac wrote:We have data on long-term outcomes, do we not?

1 Chicago
2 Harvard
3 Yale
4 Columbia
5 Northwestern
6 UVA
7 Penn
8 NYU
9 Stanford
10 Michigan
11 Duke
12 Cornell
13 GULC
14 GWU

So let up on him guys, he did get into a T14 after all…

And he'll get to be classmates with folks like this: http://abovethelaw.com/2015/03/confused ... snt-exist/

Agreed. "Oh, look, someone made a typo on a cover letter. I'll send it to ATL so the whole legal world can share in the hilarity! Hahahahahahaha.....15th Circuit.....hahhahahahahahaha....what a loser.....hahahahahahahahahhaha."

Someone at Cornell forwarded ATL an email from our CSO asking us to be careful with cover letters and including examples of stuff my class had done.

The email was pretty funny, but ATL sat on it for like 2 months, so I'm pretty sure they were just having a slow day.

Our moot court problem is an opinion for the "13th Circuit" and I trip up saying it every time.

Yeah, I don't know that this was worth sharing with ATL, or ATL putting it on the site. Still, though, that cover letter was abysmal.

It read like the person who wrote it was a non-native english speaker. Which is admittedly not a great look for anyone applying to a legal job in the US, regardless of what language they grew up speaking. But still, fuck whoever sent that thing.
