Legendary gunner in the making?

Postby chromylchloride » Thu Mar 25, 2010 6:33 pm

This guy is just visiting our torts class to see what he thinks of law school and decides to raise his hand and go on about tort reform for quite some time. Could he become...the gunner to end all gunners?

Heard through the grapevine that an admitted 0L sitting in on a conlaw class here hijacked our profs lecture last week. ouch.

I sat in on a class when I was a 0L, and another 0L visiting kept answering the professor's questions when the professor was socraticing (yes I made it a verb) a student in his class. The first time the kid shouted out an answer, the professor looked at him and said, "Are you a prospective student?" then when the kid said yes, the professor just continued on.

Then later in the class, the kid did it AGAIN. The professor was clearly irate, but (to his credit) controlled himself and just said quite plainly, "I was talking to her, not you."

Please note this was a 3L class we were sitting in on too, and the professor even joked in the beginning of class to the 0Ls not to answer questions because you would be mocked for your eternal law school life if you did that.

One of my professors likes to engage the 0Ls that visit in the class, and I think that is great, but if the professor doesn't address you, please don't speak, haha.

Haha! I guarantee I would not have been able to contain myself. I've had prospective students sit in class but they have never said a word. In fact, one guy fell asleep once. Haha!

all that 0L gunning will probably wear him out, so he might not be much of a gunner by the time he gets to be a 1L.

And I thought the girl taking notes on her computer at a prospective student day was bad...

I attended a mock class at one school last year, and I would say around 1/3 of the 0Ls in the room were taking notes. It absolutely blew my mind.

HA I was an admitted student in that same class, although not the student in question. Lot's of snickering from the 1L's.


At emory? Either way, see how this stuff gets talked about instantly? Don't be "that guy"

I can see both sides to that coin. What's the difference between taking notes in a visited class and reading suggested summer books pre-1L? Besides, nobody knows what was in those "notes" the students were taking. Maybe they were "notes to self", as in "Dear self, this prof is a wack ass nut-job. Stay away from him at all costs! These are the reasons:..."

On the other hand, these people might be taking themselves just a bit too seriously.

I don't think I would do this myself, but I can understand how they might want to "simulate" the law school experience as much as possible. Since they won't be sitting back with their feet on the desk and a shit-eating grin on their face come September, they don't want to do that when they're trying out the class.

But really, they're just gunners.

At one of the ASD's I attended (you can search through my posts to figure out which one) after the professor had asked "Ok, what should we get from this ruling? What did we learn today?" a prospective student raised his hand, leaned back sideways in his chair, rolled his eyes and said "That the Supreme Court is stupid and their majority opinion reflects the fact that none of them can decide upon anything." I was literally shocked, as was the professor. Where do these people come from?

paused in the middle of a sentence, looked over at the person and asked, "are you seriously taking notes?"

Someone who was visiting vandy on the same day as me had a big legal pad out writing stuff (this was in a legislation/regulatory state class--think uber boring) and was scribbling stuff. In her binder, I saw a big thing of business cards (she went to a school of business in alabama) with her name on it. At the end of class she gave the prof her card. Oh yea, and she brought her parents with her too...

In my mock classes I'm mostly writing crude things to the people to my left.

Isn't it the gunners who usually end up getting just average grades?
