2L and 3L gunners

Postby truthypants » Thu Aug 26, 2010 11:23 pm

I thought the gunners were supposed to chill out after 1L. This does not appear to be the case at my school. The same gunners from 1L have their hands perpetually up during 2L classes as well. Guess if you're a gunner, you're a gunner for life.

Kids in my evidence class (if you're reading this, you know who you are) need to shut the hell up. We've gotten through like 20 pages of material all week.

LLMs seem to hijack most classroom discussions so far. And take them very very very far off course.

At first I thought they were gunners but now I think they are just slow....they ask some of the most retarded questions.

I would like to consider myself a Sniper. Its as if they just bought a brand new BMW and trying to show it off when I have a Ferrari parked in my driveway (or in my garage bc I'm a sniper??).

It seems sniping is the preferred method. Let no one know you have you have your scope on them until it's too late

I'm in the law school navy. I am unarmed so I just keep my mouth shut and try to stay afloat.

SSS but the two students who are dominating the class discussions in two of my classes are both transfers. One of them won't let a question go by without getting a hand up. I wonder if they feel like they have to prove something.

I propose a gunner competition. Take notes on your favorite gunner and submit them on a thread somewhere for voting. Does a month from now sound like a reasonable time period to gin up enough memorable quotes and questionable commentary to provide a real competition?

Also, this is my background now. I'm definitely going to leave my computer blank for as much of the class as I can, so that they may understand.

Haven't been any straight-up gunners in my section so far. There's a big mix of people raising their hands, but not so much to pose hypos or ask off-point questions. There was a guy who tried to gun the first day, but he got embarrassed and hasn't said much since.

I've got an LLM in K's that always volunteers to answer questions and gets it wrong. When asked if there was consideration in Kirksey, she said there was because he considered whether or not to invite his sister-in-law or something like that. I don't remember the specifics, but she used consideration in the colloquial sense and the prof ripped her for it.

There was a legendary gunner at my school (graduated last May) who objected from the audience during a classmate's Trial Ad final.

This girl in my income tax class has already challenged two of the professor's statements of law. It's going to be a long semester.

My favorite thus far:

One girl first began her gunning/annoyingness during orientation about counseling, where she proceeded to ask about 20 questions about gay lesbian counseling. Apparently she's married to a dude. Then, during crim law when asked what the sentence for a rapist should be she goes "I think most of us in this room have been raped, and it's a horrible, horrible crime... so I think he should get life!"

Intense over share of information.

Ah yes. I was once in class with someone like this. Actually she probably means well, but what's happening is a sort of inverted martyr complex. She wants to help people, probably help everyone, but she needs to be recognized for doing it. It's a compulsion and don't bother expecting it to get better - the thought process is an endless "Oh, he didn't mention this, he must have forgotten, I'd better...Oh, what about this, this could be important to someone, I'd better..."

but I sympathize. my class was a college class and I could just roll my eyes or not go, but I'd be pissed to have my multi-thousand dollar mandatory class hijacked by anyone, for any reason, no matter how benign
