Honestly, petty shit is petty shit no matter how lame the OP may be. He doesn't deserve quite this amount of ridicule.

Oh yes he does. If you're going to write a post on how awesome you are and basically write a TLS novel on how people can be as awesome as you and completely misspell a word in the first couple of sentences, its on.

Also, doesn't it seem like this guy is a total flame, trying to incite a TLS frenzy... which would explain the overly condescending tone and his belief that there is an "a" in "excel."

The OP has to be some sort of elaborate flame. I refuse to believe that this is serious.

Oh, it's definitely a flame. Check the post count for OP and then realize suspension of disbelief is impossible for that post :roll: No one's that dumb... right?

I actually never got called on pretty much all semester because I was always asking really good questions. I think that's a lot better than being the douche who raises his hand every time an incredibly obvious question is asked, because he thinks it makes him look smart. And, by constantly talking, you lower the chance of getting called on and not knowing what you're talking about.

Were y'all happy with your respective grades?


I don't think there is any correlation between grades and gunning. I know quiet people who got good grades, and I know some loud people who got good grades.

That said, I don't think anyone in our section was a typical douchey gunner, but then again who knows I may be it. :lol:

These rules I provided assume that you are in a class worth gunning in.

If you honestly have a professor that does nothing but asks you what happens when you add 2 + 2, chances are he is not a professor worth gunning for because such questions don't give you an opportunity to showcase deep understanding of the class. Thus, highly unlikely you will get a bump.

When my professor throws out a softball, usually a ****storm of questions will ensue that get harder and harder.

These rules were meant for professors who do give out bumps, (I actually have some professors who say they don't, and I don't make a peep in those) and these rules were meant for professors who will actually ask you questions that require some analytical ability beyond simply what color the sky is.

Do you go to Cooley Law School or something?

120. Not only a troll, but an incompetent one at that. 0 points for unoriginal Cooley reference tacked onto a tl;dnr post.

Edit: OK, I missed the profile. Partial credit for absurdity, maybe our troll is better when given more time to prepare and simply has trouble when trying to continue the ruse.

interesting read. I actually liked this. It puts the perspective of "gunners" in LS.
Again a gunner=always a gunner. Hated by most.

OP your post was helpful. But gunners are generally hated on TLS

Oh come on. You know who the gunner was. Now I wouldn't say he was a douche but... definitely a gunner.

I got a 4.0 at W&L without even really studying. Can't complain. Seriously though, while sometimes I did think I was missing out on getting called on because being called on would have forced me to think the cases over more carefully/pay attention in class, I think asking (good) questions is probably one of the surest signs that you're actually getting the material. Much more so than giving good answers.

lol you guys are giving him a pretty hard time, but im betting half of you didnt read his whole post either

i actually did, and while his rules arent like the ten commandments or anything (wait, bad example, those get broken all the time), some of them provided some good insight

i think a few of his follow-up posts, his profile, are all jokes or him being an e-douche, but his original rules post isnt that bad (yeah i thought accel was hilarious too...esp. given the context)

traydeuce is providing some interesting thoughts as well -- personally, i found both posters informative, or at least they both said things i could learn from for 1L law classes

and i dont know if the OP's rules were "gunning" or not. more like working the system. i thought gunners would do the dumb things as well like give their opinions when unasked for lol.

What really sets a LS gunner apart from a UG gunner?
In my UG classes, I'd say I ask 1-2 questions in the average hour long period... though strictly when I don't think something was clear or I just dont get it.

Would that make me an LS gunner, or just normal?

You wrote a thread entitled, "The Sacred Rules of Gunning," on TLS and you expected it to receive a warm reception?
