Right about the "ties?"

Yes-"ties" are an accurate, albeit recent discovery by TLS.

38% of voters think ties are legit.

Haven't we been over this before? You are reading the poll very generously in your favor, just like you're reading your school's employment stats generously in your favor, only counting people when it is convenient. Counting the "I dunno, maybe overstated?" group in your favor is pretty disingenuous. And again, limiting this poll to people who have actually been through hiring, aka 2Ls, 3Ls, and recent grads, would result in a far more distorted poll in favor of ties being an important factor in hiring. Just look at who has posted in support of you (mostly 0Ls and 1Ls) and who has disagreed with you (everyone else).

Seriously man, this is getting so old. You revived this thread after a WEEK just to continue the pissing contest? We have different opinions. I think we established that 10 days ago. Let it go. Let's move on with our lives. You're acting like this:

I actually voted for that, so yes I'm going to count it.

Ties = bullshit is wrong because in some contexts ties are really important in legal hiring.

Too good.

Also, I thought if you said something enough times it became true. Wrong?

Also-- 23 yr old 2L at private school gunning for big law is arguing with a 30 yr old 1L at state school where no one gets their jobs through OCI and no one has options outside the state ABOUT employment at state schools where no one gets their job through OCI and no one has options outside the state.

I think the poll would be different too if it were filled with even more T-25 gunners who are having trouble getting jobs in states 1000 miles from their law school where they have no ties. The yes vote might actually be winning.

I love bias. Really, Romo?

We aren't both advocating two different positions on the internet? You.. don't see that? You with the ties grew, me solo. That is the only difference.

Obviously we are both advocating two different position, broheim. No kidding. The difference is I was ready to just let it go, whereas you had to come back in a week after this thread died and get it flamed up again. That's what I'm saying chief.

I have no idea what you are talking about at this point. I think you're being dense on purpose at this point.

Ok well the counter arguments are just getting worse and worse, so I'm going to take a breather. If tomorrow I respond to the fourteen things said, I suppose Romo will have to accuse me of reviving the thread again.

PS the lead just grew -- 40/38. Luv it.

haha oops. I meant ties crew...

anyway everyone else in this thread can tell your cutsie picture applies to both of us. Also... you probably have an alt with another 3234534 posts, so I'm not sure this argument is your best.
