yah, UC is not Univ. of Chicago.

UC is a Univ of Cal school, e.g. UC Davis, UC Berkeley, etc etc.

U OF C is Univ of Chicago.

I frequently see this one in convo:

CGWBT - Could get worse before tomorrow or Cheery girl with big tits (particularly, CGWBT's in law school)

Why do you insist on lowering the IQ of this thread? Princeton is NOT a law school, and therefore is NOT related. You're NOT cool.

I've seen HYP referenced a number of times on this forum, as in:

"Your undergrad tends not to have a big influence, unless you went to HYP."

Thanks for the input. I'm happy Liz caught on.

"Your undergrad tends not to have a big influence, unless you went to HYP."


Whoever says that has no idea what they're talking about. There are dozens of UG's ranked higher than HY. The fact that you went there has no impact on your admission, unless you're applying there for LS. Even then, the impact is marginal.

sic does not mean spelling is correct. it's some sort of latin abb. i believe, which basically just acknowledges a spelling error exists.

QFT works like this:

mongoose's bashing on legaltrouble is excessive

Sorry. I'll work on it.

[sic] indicates that the preceding word or phrase is trascribed correctly by the author citing it, despite it's unusual appearance or blatantly incorrect usage.

FTW means "For the Win?!" Seriously? Like the old school nazi reply "für den Sieg!"?

Shit, I've been spending too much time in the music industry. FTW means--unequivocally--FUCK THE WORLD!

Either that, or it's a dyslexic saying "what the fuck?"
