You don't want to be a Boopbeep, thinking he's above it all and yet still has an opinion on the worthiness of each EIC candidate. You want to not even know who these people are. Because only then can you truly live.
While accepting that I do indeed suck
It wasn't intended as a comment on their worthiness - just that I had some idea of the prototypical EIC-type person (super striver, etc) and was surprised this person didn't match it. It seems like OP has similar sorts of ideas about what his board is looking for - interest in legal academia, lol - so I wanted to point out that competent people who, like, give a shit about lawl review seem more likely to actually get elected.
Shrug. If that's too judgmental for TLS, I don't even know what this place is anymore.
That said, agree with the overall conclusion to not bother with any of this crap
