TLSers...friends in real life?

Postby DaftAndDirect » Thu Jun 09, 2011 5:08 pm

So one of the things I really like about TLS is that it seems like a geeked out (read: forum-based) preview to law school in real life.

It's filled with driven and very intelligent people who are generally well written/spoken and who also love to argue. That said, how does the transition from our collective forum-ing to meeting eachother in real life (at the same schools presumably) really play out? To break it down:

1. Do you find that most/some/no students you go to school with have an active TLS account?
2. Are you currently friends IRL with someone you knew first through TLS?
3. If so, are they similar or vastly different from what you expected?

I've got just under a year of posting left before I finally make the decision to matriculate and for some reason this topic has me really curious...

Edit: The above question is obv directed at current law students.

You should ask this in the lounge too, I hear they're all pretty good friends there.

I met 4 or 5 people on TLS who I am now friends with at school.

A LOT of people are IRL friends who met on TLS. Mostly people who are active in the lounge, though.

TLS meetups and school-cliques are like black mold. If you're just there to take the LSAT, you won't notice anything, but if you visit every day, you'll start to notice the smell.

TLS is basically the law school version of Adult Friend Finder.

The Chicago based TLS cliques have strongly discouraged me from ever visiting the midwest.

TITCR. I think BP is into the double digit of hook ups, an engagement, and several relationships.

I dunno, everyone I've met at NU seems relatively normal, so I think that might preclude me having met you.

I'm about 90lbs 5'5'' bleach blonde with pierced lip? You meet anyone like that?

Strangely, I have actually met two people like that, but they were making out at the time so I moved along.

Most of my friends don't use the site.

I do have one friend, however, that uses the site regularly. He's a douchebag.

No, I'm just kidding. But I'm sure he'll read this post later...
