0Ls in the law students forum really make my heart smile on Sunday mornings with finals looming.
Cold calls don't matter. At all. Ever. In fact, you get BONUS LAW SCHOOL PRESTIGE POINTS based on a calculation that takes the ratio of your GPA to the number of cold calls you blew. The higher that number, the better at life / prioritizing you are.
I still don't like blowing cold calls, though. My classmates don't need any more reasons to think of me as law school barbie.
(I don't talk in class very often, the way some of my classmates do, but once or twice in a semester, when I care about a topic (Braschi v. Stahl, anyone? --LinkRemoved-- ) I will raise my hand and say something that I hope makes sense. I loved class discussions in UG, and part of me is saddened that they have such an aura of douchebaggery attached to them in LS.)
