+1. I know anon abuse isn't a huge deal, but when people are allowed to post stupid shit that contains no sensitive information behind the wall of anonymity, it does detract from the overall discussion in the legal employment forums.
This thinking is immature as hell. I know that this is hard for a lot of people on here to fathom, but you not agreeing with something that someone says does not equate with that comment being "stupid". Although that is a common line of thinking on here it's very arrogant, juvenile, and idiotic.
Further, after actually going to law school and not just hearing comments about it from people who have 7000 TLS points after 6 months, I've found that a lot of stuff said on here is exaggerated out of the ass. The 100 percent offer thing and the difficulty of summer associate work might be one of the most exaggerated.
I definitely know people who were no offered and not because they "tried" to get no offered by doing things like getting drunk in the office. Frankly, these firms have some pretty high standards for work product quality. They also fully expect you to know how to use Westlaw/Lexis in a manner that absolutely minimizes costs. The thing about both of those things is that law school doesn't teach you a damn thing about how to do them. Further, firms often want assignments to be completed in a very short time frame without any sort of errors. It's not damn show up for a summer and get an offer like people make it out to be. Considering what I've learned about that and other things people on here make out to be a lot easier/simple than they really are, I sure as hell wouldn't start saying that "no one" gets no offered for grades.
