You're not the only one, but I don't see why people get upset about this kind of thing. Although people have Facebook friends who are also in law school, it's not like Facebook is exclusively a law-related social app. People have long-time acquaintances, friends, and family who might be interested to read about the FB poster's job offer. It's a big life event.
If anything, I think it's more douchey to post "Offer!" in this thread. The vast majority of SAs get offers, so it's not a major accomplishment. And the few who don't get offers feel terrible.
Look, I think it's fine to celebrate your offer ITT. But if you think law students are douches for posting about their offers on FB, you must think they're super-douches for posting about their offers here.
