Yes. Petty rivalries between overachieving nerds.

To the extent that Reddit comments are what life is like.

Really though, it isn't this bad typically and I had a generally good experience at WashU. Some friends that I will continue to talk to after graduation, a ton of people who were okay and I am generally friendly with and were okay people, and a handful of people who I am aso happy never to have to see again, so pretty much like anything else.

I rarely post but this is getting ridiculous, can't we just go back to answering questions about WUSTL like the thread title says?

For any perspective wustl students reading, I'd like to say that while I may just be removed from the drama, I never experience any of this bickering at school, I find washu law to be a collegial place.

I agree. The petty insults need to stop.

You guys should allow him to talk whatever he wants to talk on internet since he is too shy to do it in real life.


Sorry I mind my own business in law school and am not some obnoxious gunner who thinks he's smarter than everyone else even though he has nothing to show for it.

Say this to my face if you're so tough lol.


Looks like we got the makings of a good ole' fashion law school fist fight.


If Sachem had Drobak for civ pro, then I've never had class with him/her so I guess he/she is just trolling. If you really know who I am, feel free to talk shit to my face. I'd like to point out I haven't said anything bad about c/o 2017 as a whole or anybody in particular (until LawSchoolIsHard started shitting everywhere).


Maybe I am wrong, but it appears that you are implying that this should be settled vis a vis physical violence. I honestly understand your frustration, but there is no reason to call people out to fight. This is not high school. Lets be adults and have a mature discussion.

Yes, you are wrong. I am not asking for a fist fight. I'm pointing out the irony of someone who says I am "too shy" to talk in real life talking shit about me on the internet.

By "he" I was referring to myself. I'm angry at you because you're publicly insulting me. Is that not obvious?

even if P&J had assumed you were a girl (which he didn't), how would that be sexist? I think it's reasonable to assume you're a guy because of your username

Yea b/c saying "talk shit to my face" is not calling someone out for a physical altercation. Very sexist of you to do that to a woman.

again...not sexist? he's not discriminating between genders, which would make him the opposite of sexist

So fighting a girl as a male is not sexist?

And if I'm a troll why do you keep responding to my arguments.

No. Most students are congenial at school. They do their shit-talking in safe anonymity on the internet.

For those of you working in Big Law, how do you break it to colleagues and clients that you graduated from WashU? I usually say something like, "Washington University in St. Louis... It's in St. Louis. It's actually a top 20 school. They gave me a full scholarship."

I just got off the phone w/ a WashU alum who's partner in a biglaw DC firm and now I'm really freaked out about not having done journal (particularly LR).

Does anyone have stories of WashU students who got biglaw w/o LR to make me feel better? I realize I'm deluding myself to think it won't count heavily against me, but I like to think I still have a chance..

It's absolutely possible. You'd be better off if you had some excuse for not doing it other than sheer laziness (trial team or moot court), but it's not going to totally foreclose you from big law, and people do get it every year without doing a journal. Also, DC is a tough market to crack so don't focus too heavily on it.

Is it crazy to do both LR and Moot Court? I feel like it's a good idea in theory but I don't think I can manage the time well enough since I am also doing a clinic in the fall. I'm pretty sure I'll drop moot court, but wanted some input first.

Definitely doable (ppl do it). I didn't/wouldn't but whatever.

Also keep in mind that Clinics tend to be more of a time commitment than classes.
