after successfully climbing to the top of the WC3 east coast ladder, i spent several years living under the delusion that i might have what it takes to be at the top of the video game trade. then i saw a documentary on south korean professional SC2 players. law school is probably easier.

I have a fever and keep dreaming about my brief. I'm also going to fall way behind on pretty much all of my work since I have the freakin' flu :(.

That's why you don't play SC and play CS instead :wink:

I'd be very interested in watching this documentary. I'm actually surprised it exists, seeing how SC2 has only been out for like 9(?) months now?

the progaming scene already existed, though, from brood war. many of the brood war teams started allowing some of their players to play SC2 in beta, and several of the new teams were formed by mostly ex-brood war pros or coaches. i'm not sure what documentary he's talking about, though.

for clarity, i didn't watch the entire documentary, just an excerpt on youtube talking about the professional gaming scene in SK, how the pros lived, and how they practiced. i can't find the exact clip right now, but i've got another excerpt from the same documentary which demonstrates handspeed:

I've seen that one before, apparently "The Hax life"? Will look into it.

Quick question....

Do you think it would be a better idea to attend a TTT law school at sticker, or simply redo an entire new undergraduate degree (sticker as well) at a better university and complete it in three years? I think most would agree that UG can easily be completed in 3 years if you subtract the partying.

It's a serious question; from the point of view of future earnings/job security, would it make more sense to "retake" and get a useful undergraduate degree instead of a TTT JD w/debt?

No this isn't directed towards myself.... but regarding the previous poster's comment, not sure B-school is worth it. Business changes too fast these days for most B-schools to stay relevant. Harvard even admitted this in their own business school journal.

If you have a UG degree already you should be able to get a new degree within a year with either 18 credit semesters or doing some summer classes. Most majors take 12 classes unless its Bio/Pre-Med and if you already have an undergrad degree you should have EVERYTHING else covered to graduate.

Most careers don't require a specific bachelors and most majors don't really give you a huge leg up. You can get a CPA without an accounting major. You can certainly do business major stuff without a business major. You can learn programming and be a programmer without any degree.

Getting a second bachelor might not be a terrible idea, but financial aid for it is very limited. Maybe part time at your local state school.

TL;DR; get a real job you immature, school loving, slackers.

I was embarrassed to submit mine too. Even though it is ungraded I felt foolish putting my name on something that I wouldn't even wipe my ass with.

I spent today eating ice pops, sleeping and forcing myself to drink about a gallon of juice. I actually miss reading ConLawl at this point :(.
