Good catch. Great movie. I feel like I just vanquished a gladiator.

Yeah. Sort of makes me want to watch it. One of my favorites. Eight gladiators, one for each word of the 250?


City of God is really good, too. (out of right field, as the saying goes)

Lol - blatant show-off of logical reasoning skills by eager-beaver top law school candidate. He said it in a colloquial setting and you knew what he meant.

Nope, I honestly thought he was avoiding the question by saying something that may or may not mean I was wrong.

That's bull, considering that the preceding sentence began "And you're assuming...," implying that you shouldn't have been assuming they all were true.

Uh, saying "And you're assuming" also avoids an answer the same as "One of those is correct." Assuming something doesn't mean I was wrong.

In that statement he never said I was wrong.

+1. I'm bracing for a lot more of these types of arguments as a 1L.

Dude, don't play dumb. He was clearly saying that only one of the four facts he listed was actually true. People speak in a colloquial manner on internet forums - they're not trying to simulate LSAT questions. In the context he was speaking, it would make no sense for him to say one is correct when he means to leave open the possibility that all four are correct. All you did was correct him for making a logically imprecise statement, and you know it. Notice that he said "good catch" in response.

I suggest that we close this discussion before it becomes unnecessarily acrimonious.

I liked this thread more when the hopeless applicants (who have a reasonable chance of being accepted but are unnecessarily pessimistic) lament on their lack of a decision from Yale.

Please return to what is expected, <3. :).

It's the same on all threads here ... I would think it is more understandable to feel this way about Yale than any others. I people with strong academic records usually feel like they can obtain what they set out to try if they try hard enough. Not so in this case. It is even worse to be judged (without knowing what the criterias are) for overachievers. They are usually not at the mercy of someone else since they usually command their own destiny.

This has and will always be a humbling experience :)

So look at complete people from around 1-22 from new jersey who have been out of school for 3+ years and attended a large public school. Wouldn't be hard at all.


And you're assuming that I was complete 1-22 +/- a week or so, live in Jersey, have been out of school for 3+ years, and went to public school.

YOU WON'T GET IT.

Who is number 1?

/prisoner references.

I absolutely love how nobody posts in this thread anymore.

Um. So. I've never been to New Haven. Is it really as bad as its reputation makes it out to be? It looks almost quaint from the photos I've seen.

Parts of it are. The area right near the campus is cleaned up. I don't remember a whole lot from visiting before undergrad, so that's basically the extent of my knowledge. Also, being used to relatively rundown neighborhoods of New York City or my own hometown made it seem a lot less unpleasant to me than I think it does to people from comfortable suburbia or rural areas.

Neat. I've lived in some pretty nasty industrial wastelands in my day so I'm not terribly concerned about living near poverty or crime. I suppose my question was more along the lines of: Is New Haven really as mind-numbingly boring as some folk make it out to be?

I mean, obviously Yale law is the MOST EXCITING PLACE EVER, but how about the rest of the town?

I went to New Haven a few times in the early 2000's. Had a friend who lived 2 blocks from the Yale campus. I remember running into Yalies on the street and thinking how different our lives were. The city around Yale is decent. You are not really insulated form the local residents but it didn't feel rundown at all. The rest of the city did feel run down, but I was living in West Philly at the time and I feel a lot safer in New Haven than back home. I have not been back since, but from what I heard a lot has improved since then, so I should not have any problem with it. But I can see why many feel the place is a dump (compare to what they are used to).

I was doing laundry and came across an old shirt I had that had New Haven on it. I think I bought it at the Goodwill store when I was up there. Good sign? :D

I've visited a couple of times (for mock trial stuff and a conference). I loved the architecture, it's very English and I almost felt like I was in England. And it looked really pretty in the winter ...

There were a couple of decent cafes, dining places nearby but nothing like NYC or Chicago ... and I'm a big fan of ethnic food so I don't know how I'll deal with that. :(

On the plus side, NYC isn't all that far away so if anyone's really REALLY craving decent Chinese or Italian or Thai, the city isn't that far away for a weekend trip.

Actually what I am worried about is the people/environment. I've heard that they can be very snobbish and I don't know how true that is. I'm sure every place has it's nice people and snobs etc.

Does anyone have any personal knowledge or opinions about this? Thanks!
