This is, admittedly, a pretty awesome troll.

You have a lot of prominent posters posting here, telling you you're a douche!

Haha. I am getting such a huge kick out of this kid. Keep bragging! You are the biggest fish in your pond. Own it girl!

But unless you go to a T14, you won't get as good a job as a kid with a 3.3 at CLS.

Reality. Hurts.

Have you considered sending an email announcing your GPA on the law school listserv? Immediately follow it up with another email saying "lawl sorry guys, meant to send that to Wachtell."

Spoken like someone without a 4.1 which, as you may have heard, is the GPA of TLS user OnePostWonder.

I know of a law school dropout who could probably tell you.

Does this forum have no mods to ban trolls like you? Here I am pouring my heart and soul out, desperately seeking advice, and you know what you guys do? You make it out to be a big joke. Shame on you.

That said, I agree with snehpets (she edited for some reason). It would seem pretty shifty for me to tell people "pretty well" and have them find out that I did so well. Maybe I'll just start telling people I'm at the top of the class (I'll consider those 5 or so people who have already asked dead to me). But that seems over-the-top already, and begs for clarification more than a simple refusal to answer.

Yeah, I definitely still need help.

That said, I agree with snehpets (she edited for some reason). It would seem pretty shifty for me to tell people "pretty well" and have them find out that I did so well. Maybe I'll just start telling people I did very well (I'll consider those 5 or so people who have already asked dead to me)? But that seems over-the-top already, and begs for clarification more than a simple refusal to answer.

Accidentally posted in this thread without being a law school student (it showed up on the front page and I couldn't resist/didn't think about what forum it was in), so don't take my advice :)

Also, pretty sure you're a troll, so lol.

You had a good run, but you showed your cards too early.

Now you jut seem like a troll. Was pretty funny, but you overplayed your hand when you acted so unbelievably retarded that a masturbating howler monkey on a drug-addled Jersey Shore binge could probably handle social situations better than you.

Have T-shirts made with your name, picture and GPA. Make sure they are top-quality, not those crappy ones that BarBri makes up. Then set up a table and hand them out to everyone with a big jackass grin on your face. For bonus points, get the exact measurements of everyone in your class and have all the t-shirts made-to-measure.

Do you have to call everyone in your section and tell them when you get laid? No, because a little discretion is necessary sometimes.

If you don't have any discretion, then I suggest telling everyone in your section about your sexual history when you update them on your grades. Otherwise, they'll must be thinking you're a slut or a prude.

Let me fix that for you. A proper analogy would be that when people ask me how often I get laid, I should answer "I don't talk about my sexual history." Then everyone would think I'm a virgin, and no me gusta/no es bueno. That's why I feel the need to tell people how I did do re: my GPA (in a roundabout way so not as to get their jealousy all over me).

Perfect analogy, check and mate.
