Don't confuse hatred for raging, aggressive apathy.

I'm pretty certain no such thing exists as those are mutually exclusive. So hate it is.

+1. Is it douchey for a computer science/engineering major to list computers as a interest, or a med student to list medicine as an interest?

I think it is douchey for someone who has met no one in their class to ask everyone to be there friend on facebook. Received an invite for this yesterday. What a douche

That question is flawed because CS and Med involve one body of knowledge. They teach things that make one ready for a job in their respective profession. Law school teaches you nothing that makes you ready for a job after graduation save for doc review.

I give you six weeks of law school before you develop a raging and aggressive apathy towards formalistic reasoning.

So law students cannot legitimately claim to be interested in law, because... law school doesn't teach specific job skills?

I realize that you probably think you are pretty smart, but this doesn't make any sense.

Is it douchey to bitch on a law student forum about law students who claim they're interested in law?

Law school doesn't teach law. Law school allegedly teaches a mode of reasoning that allows one to learn and apply the law. You only begin to learn the law when you study for the bar, pass the bar, and begin working as a lawyer. It's not my fault you don't know what I'm talking about.

So, nobody can legitimately be interested in law until after passing the bar and working as a lawyer?

A lot of people ITT seem to be belaboring under the mistaken assumption that anybody cares?

Can you be legitimately interested in something you don't know? You could conceivably think you are interested in something called law, but you will not know what that thing really is.

I have no idea why we're still talking about this.
