OMG the Gunners

Postby MTal » Tue Jan 13, 2009 4:03 pm

It's only the second day of class, and contrary to what I've heard, the gunners have only redoubled their efforts. Apparently they think that their low grades, far from being the result of talking too much, were the result of not talking ENOUGH. Some of these comments make me want to shoot myself.

Edit: I am in class, and needed to vent.

I've looked up "gunner" on this forum, and even googled it and read some blog posts about them....but aside from just complaining and insulting them, I haven't come across much that really explains what distinguishes a gunner from a highly motivated law student (other than making supposedly stupid comments in class). Are all overachievers in law school labeled gunners?? I'm confused lol....help?

One of the rules when it comes to gunners...if you can't figure out who or what a gunner is...you are probably a gunner.

I've read that a gunner is a person who contributes nothing to class discussion except his/her opinion which no one cares about.

I'm in the same boat. :roll: I'm pretty sure it means catty little wenches that are overachievers and always interrupt the prof in class to be a teacher's pet.

Thanks for that! I'm slowly trying to catch up on law school jargon and I find myself having to interpret for my husband now when we have law school related conversations :D

For me, there's always been gunners in my classes. There's been people in middle school all the way through college who talk to impress and contribute nothing. Law schools tend to call those people who speak in class gunners, but then those who overachiever are also gunners.

Actually, all overachievers are sluts.


On the flip slide, that sucks that gunners are talking more. It is still the same for me, though there are always people who are disappointed about grades.

A gunner is someone who makes you want to vomit or die when you see his or her hand raised in class.

Maybe that got really good grades and think their gunnerish tactics worked for them.

A little visine in his/her nalgene will shut them up :wink:


Kidding of course, uncontrollable vomiting should be reserved for only the most desperate occasions.

LOL. Well, there is a difference between being an over achiever and being a gunner. Gunners seem to think that brown nosing and mouth flapping count as being "over achieving." Real overachievers let their grades speak for themselves.

Best of the Autoadmit thread:


I think I know what to do - one day, while gunning, I'll get into such a heated and passionate argument with the prof that at the end of my speech, I just puke all over my desk.

But what will make it legendary is when I wipe off my mouth and continue gunning like nothing happened.

I prefer to bang my head against the wooden paneling until unconscious. I usually wake up in time for the next class.
