I'm not sure where I came off as cocky; I never made any statements to suggest that I could work while in law school, or that I'd even be able to make LR. I was simply pointing out that your insistance on posting in absolutes is asinine. Making the blanket statement that, because you can't do something, it is impossible is not only not helpful, but egotistical. The person you were responding to didn't ask for advice as to whether or not they should work while in school or even ask if they'd have time, nor did they mention any interest in LR, and yet you come in on your high horse and tell them that they won't have time to work and do LR as if they had posed the question directly to you for guidance.
I am sure all prospective students are grateful for your knowledge when requested, but that doesn't mean that you need to analyze every statement and look for a reason to be negative.
I apologize if my words come off as insincere or sarcastic, but it is the web and inflection and tone are not easily conveyed.
