Oh I don't know - mine's come in handy. All depends on how you channel it, I suppose.

Fuck you, now go get me my coffee :twisted:


Wow, the people at your institutions seem like real dicks.

It is the University of Chicago. What did you expect?

As for ToTransferOrNot, congrats!!


Just for the record, the University of Chicago is not a bunch of dicks. I attend there, and enjoy it very much. I'm not sure where people get this impression.

It's pretty shocking to me. I've never heard of someone at UT acting like that.


You should get out more often, Snooker.

During the first week of class, one of my section mates, upon hearing the name of my undergraduate institution, quipped, "So...is that a good school?"

Since then, I've compiled a substantial UT LAW 1L DOUCHEBAG list. It remains unpublished, of course. I only consult it when creating a invitation list for parties.

I went to a thoroughly TTTT UG and I think only one person at UVA has ever said something remotely rude about it. Most people just reply with "Oh..."

To be honest, I was grateful he demonstrated his douchebaggery early. I'm quite careful about the people with whom I spend my free time. He helped me avoid wasting my time :).

Sadly, lists like mine probably exist at every law school, including the unaccredited ones LOL :). But that's the law.

My torts professor announced that grades would most likely be out tonight, but if you had the top two grades then you already knew because she already talked to you... Obviously there's been a mistake because she didn't talk to me about my grade :D

On a serious note, the grade was not posted tonight...so more waiting :cry:

I randomly discovered our Civ Pro grade was posted when I logged into cMore to ensure that I was finally enrolled in my classes after all the hold up clusterfucks. It felt like a sledgehammer at first, just on account of shock.

Current feelings: nondescript.

If the section mates was an Ivy grad, you should have snapped back with yeah.. but at least I jumped UP in brand prestige... (would have to be ok with with slightly dogging UT for not quite being T14)


LOL :).

Despite the feisty reputation I've cultivated on TLS, I can be gracious, buddy :). I felt sorry for him because he was portly, plain of face, and horribly dressed.

Also, the vast majority of U of C kids really aren't dicks. In fact, I know no one that's a dick. If there is dickishness, it has yet to manifest itself in the class of 2012.

I don't know if I care per se, but I have to admit I make favorable presumptions about the HYPS kids here.

Cointreau shots taste like being punched in the teeth by an orange rind. If it was good there was a plan in place. A set of clothes had been prepared, bail money set aside, and a handle of Jack set down by the door.

As a man who thinks he knows his liquors, I'm having a hard time envisioning a world in which Cointreau is bad news and Jack is good news. Am I reading this wrong?

Have you ever woken up on a sidewalk after drinking Cointreau? If not, Jack is a superior liquor for joyful occasions.

Get the rest of my grades tomorrow probably. I have 2 classes (4 crediters) back right now and I'm sitting pretty. But those last 1.5 (a 4 credit + 2 credit course) could destroy my day real quick if things don't go right.
