Boring, Middle of the Road, Insecure Common Law Student.

Not enough science skills for med school and an inability to be creative or crunch numbers that rules out a successful business career, the boring, middle of the road law student is likely straight out of undergrad. He or she wants a large paycheck in exchange for doing mind-numbing work at a job he or she can brag about to the rest of us who couldn't give a shit. Faced with other people in law school who don't care as much, have higher ideals or are simply more gifted, he or she tries to be funny by writing inane stereotypes of them and then posting these stereotypes on boring, middle of the road law blog. ;)


LOL


Is there any other kind?

lolwut?

I don't think we have to worry about you being the "silent killer" with writing like that. Was there a point in that barren wasteland of a post?

Politically incorrect or not, there is a certain ring of truth to all of these sterotypes, including the "offensive" #8

The truth is: if this list was truly insightful, this thread would be 20+ pages by now.

Implications? I'd say expressions :lol: . Did you read the line about "f-u-l-l-r-i-d-e"? Could a person be more glibly bigoted?

The ironic thing? Most of the "offended" people don't belong to any of the categories.

Oh self-loathe

Really I could see some of the easily offended people (not the ones who posted, just in general) being number ones. With that being said, I think I'm a number one but def. not as harsh, but I would never be happy doing big/corporate law. But IDC if other people do.
