The fuck? What makes you think I haven't read the relevant threads on this subject? The two main points against prepping are that it's a waste of time and I won't understand what I need to be learning. The first point is moot because I have nothing better to do. The second point is a matter of contention on TLS with most people claiming that 0Ls won't know what needs to be focused on and that it will actually confuse them. Some people have said that they found the prep to be useful. I've read BOTH SIDES of this and decided that the reasons given for prep outweigh the reasons given against it. How much simpler do I need to break this down for you?
The funniest thing is that you think it is going "rogue" or against the grain. Thats where you have it totally backwards. Almost EVERY neurotic kid like you will do the EXACT SAME THING. You aren't going against the grain or going rogue. You are doing precisely what your neurotic mindset is telling you to do (i.e. picking out the first tree in front of you and grasping to it way too hard). Thats the definition of losing the forest for the trees, and you are, from the very first step, failing to see the bigger picture.
I'm going against the grain of TLS opinion. I don't know what gave you the impression that I needed to know what my future classmates might be doing to prepare for law school.
Not sure why exactly I'm helping you out and sharing with you actual ways to get a leg up on your classmates. You don't deserve them with the attitude you have, and I usually only share that info with those who I feel actually are "rogues" who go against the grain.
This is quite possibly the most self-important thing I've ever read on TLS. Were you jerking off in the mirror as you typed this?
