But I'm getting discouraged. Not about job prospects, not about debt. I know I want to be a lawyer. I'm discouraged by what I read on TLS. Specifically, I'm discouraged to think that I will be spending three years with you douchebags.
I think you guys are probably nice, harmless people. But who the hell sits down and makes line graphs of the decision dates at a law school? Who the hell gets on the internet to plug a STRANGER'S numbers into law school predictor for them? SO many of the things said on this site land somewhere between pointless, idiotic, and redundant. Originality is the diamond in the rough.
I've been reading these forums for several months, and yes, they have helped me with the application process. But that's not the same as wanting to spend time with the people that created them.
My question is this: Are you guys really the anal retentive, petty, witless cretins that you sound like on this website? Are there a load of readers who never post that are actually solid people?
OP, you're right about the snarkiness and elitism (I'm not a frequent poster but have been guilty of that nevertheless). But, seriously, the bolded is ironic. Not only are you using a huge cliche to bemoan the lack of originality on this site, but you're also using the cliche incorrectly. Nice!
