This forum is meant for information sharing. That's all. Attacking people who do so just because it makes you feel bad that they did better is small-minded and counterproductive. Why ruin it for everyone else who actually wants to know what's going on? Would you rather people walked around JG bragging about how well they did? If not, please stop whining.
I actually found it interesting to know how others are doing, and it's much better manners to do so on here anonymously than to ask people in person. I didn't get nearly 17 callbacks but I'd rather know how I'm doing than not. If you think it's too competitive to simply take an objective interest in how your performance is, you probably shouldn't be in law school in the first place and it's honestly not surprising that you're not drowning in callbacks. How is getting mad when someone does better than you going to help you or anyone else? At least if I know I'm not on the very top, I'm aware I have room to improve and even more motivated to do so - far better than being in denial and pretending mediocrity makes me a superstar. If knowing you're not the best undermines your confidence that much, you should know that about yourself and stop coming here if you can't deal with it.
first of all, you have no idea who i am, whether i'm on law review, and how many callbacks i have so it's completely unfounded for you to say i'm just being jealous. (and on a side note please don't make assumptions for which you have absolutely no basis by rudely telling me it's not surprising i don't have many callbacks). where hell did you get the basis for everything you just wrote that i'm upset with my own mediocrity? seriously? i'm not attacking people for sharing information, i'm asking them not to brag and make this a competition about who can get the most callbacks, which that person was clearly doing. and of course i don't want people walking around jg bragging. i don't want people bragging anonymously either. there's a huge difference between telling people how you're doing and competing and trying to establish a reason why someone else might have more callbacks than you do when you're already doing better than the majority of cls students (because there must be a reason). if anyone is jealous it's the person wondering why someone has more callbacks than they do. i really don't see how you think getting annoyed that people are bragging is the same thing as getting mad that people are more successful than i am. i'm not in denial nor am i pretending that mediocrity makes me a superstar. maybe the reason you didn't get nearly 17 callbacks is because you make way too many assumptions and claims with nothing to back them up.
stop assuming you know anything about me or that the only possible reason i could be annoyed with someone for bragging is because i can't stand seeing someone else be more successful than i am. i could have 25 callbacks and i still wouldn't appreciate people who are lacking in manners, like you. so like you said, please stop whining. or if you're going to whine, at least have something legitimate to whine about.
