If you talk with someone about jobs it always "why are you thinking about jobs."
If you wait to talk to the professor after the class to be respectful, you are a gunner.
If people find out you've been to office hours more than once, you are a gunner.
If you start a casual law related conversation at a bar, you are a gunner.
It's like a race to the bottom and it's weird. The anti-gunners are far more pretentious to me than the gunners are annoying.
I guess that makes me a gunner
The thing is the people who respond negatively to all of the above all talk about "competition" and the curve and all sorts of things amongst themselves. It is really no different with them either, which is quite hypocritical. The only difference I see is that they're talkers, but not doers.
some of us really are too cool for school because we realize we're paying exorbitant amounts of money to learn nothing of practical use and just counting down the days until biglaw. sorry u mad. if i loved school i'd have gotten a phd or some crap. I came to lawl school b/c it's a means to an end. a means I happen to find really boring and stupid.
"thinking about jobs" is tite - that's anti-gunner. Gunner is gunning for grades instead of hustling for jobs. All 4 of the things you mentioned are pretty normal.
The annoying thing is when some kid starts arguing with the prof in class for 15 minutes and tries to be an amateur prof.
not mad here. enjoying school, enjoying the material, generally enjoying my classmates. unwilling to throw myself a 3 year pity party. sorry u mad
