Surprisingly, Property has been the most interesting reads (so far), followed by Crim, followed by Civ Pro. I am not looking forward to competing with kids who decided to (a) memorize what each rule by October is & (b) what page each subsection can be found on.

This will not help nearly as much as you think it will on the exam.

It's also kind of sad because I think one of them already figured out that people were laughing/pissed off at him and was like asking people if he was annoying lol.

But maybe there are more and they're just biding their time to find the perfect moment to strike...

I don't think I've noticed any gunners in my classes. I hope that doesn't mean I'm one.

I think I'm a gunner and I can't help it. It's not that I'm dying to be heard. I just hate the SILENCE

I like it, it's subtle.

I was thinking more like "You can't spell lunatic without 1L"

Lurker that should be reading here. First day of Civ Pro and the professor had to instruct a gunner to let him finish speaking. Cutting off the professor = Gunning Hard!

Wait until you witness someone adamantly arguing with a professor.

are you in my section at Georgetown because that absolutely happened to us.

ETA ChuckBass if anyone is going to argue with the prof eventually, it's that guy. He's like the most stereotypical aspie gunner type.

Is it acceptable to laugh when this happens?

If your section is between 1 and 3, then yes. And agreed on the likelihood of him going toe to toe with a professor. I hope I get to witness the exchange!

Another lurker here. There's a girl in my crim class who loves to argue with my professor about the #BlackLivesMatter movement. The prof has a PhD in African American studies. smh.

Today the prof stopped him before he could start listing answers to the question... I like that the prof has no time for BS.

Felt like I was drowning in CivPro, so I went through all my notes, organized them into a flowchart so I wouldn't miss anything, then went to office hours to make sure I was on the right track.

Instead of answering my questions, my professor says, "Don't think of civpro as a flowchart. Flowcharts are confusing."

Me: "Oh, uh, okay. How should I think of it?"

"As a series of statutes."

:roll:

Don't worry about the overt gunners. 9 times out of 10 they don't do as well because they can't get past the smell of their own farts to realize that they might actually be wrong

He's not wrong though. The FRCP is actually pretty straightforward. I found Civpro to be the class in which it was most helpful just to memorize as much as possible.

On the other hand, I flow-charted for torts and K and found it very helpful for conceptualizing the material.

Oh no! Please tell me she used the phrase "All lives matter" at some point in the argument.

Agreed. His pragmatism seems fitting for Civ Pro. I quietly hoped that senor gun would try to get another point in...

Right, but, like, obviously it's just a series of statutes. If I wasn't having any trouble understanding or applying the statutes as written down in the book, I wouldn't be playing around with flowcharts or going to office hours.

I totally get where you're coming from. Remember that it's too early to panic, and everyone is in the same boat as you right now (some are just better at hiding it). It WILL click at some point. I promise. If you're concerned enough to go talk to a professor then likely you care enough about how you do that things are bound to work out. Just keep your head up. Getting the early stuff down sucks. It's hard because every class is like a new language. But by the end the early concepts will have been discussed so many times that you will have a better grasp on them than you ever thought. I remember how long it took me to understand what consideration was but in hindsight it's a ridiculously simple concept.

On the flip side our LRW prof stopped when he put his hand up and let him answer what was clearly a rhetorical question...
