The half-truths, omissions, and outright lies about floating through law school.

A Rant

Friday, January 21, 2005

I have been ripping on the old people in law school enough but another rather annoying demographic is the "wanna be fratboy." These are the under 30 males who either straight out of college or a few years out decide to live their glory days in law school. And I say live as opposed to re-live because it is painfully obvious that they were, well to be nice, lacking in social options as undergrads. You know the type. Went to a pretty good school, spent spring breaks at home reading How to Get Into Law School, spent summers in financial service internships that apparently never quite panned out, just missed out the fun around them and now they will soak themselves in beer and occassionally their own piss and run around screaming what a good time they are having.

The sad thing is when they travel in packs. It's like a group of slightly retarded animals who look alike: brown hair with a part, cell phone holsters, a lot of J.Crew looking sweaters and tan slacks. I bet most of them owned the same SUV at some point. Like an aging aspiring actress who is past her prime without having had a prime they cling onto the youth that they missed out on, they are depressing and to be avoided. Also, they scare off any attractive women by the sheer fact that they travel 6-8 horny drunken assholes at a time.

Do you have anything to add besides funny/unfunny?

Do you have anything to add other than "I hate foreigners" or "I hate old people" or "People that annoy me"? That last one is way too Andy-Rooneyific.

Issue:

Whether frat boys are slightly retarded animals who dress alike and scare off attractive women?

Rules:

Frat boys: travel in packs; wear J. Crew sweaters; wear tan slacks; own same type of SUV; went to a pretty good school; performed disgruntled financial services internships; soak themselves in beer and urine.

Analysis:

Law school creates a challenging intellectual and social setting. It sometimes becomes difficult to concentrate on the matters at hand with a parade of idiots overcrowding the academic and social road. Frat boys look and behave alike.

Conclusion:

Frat boys are slightly retarded animals who dress alike and scare off attractive women.

What else is there to enjoy in life other than eating, shitting, and slinging venom?

I believe you have the issue slightly askew. I was not so much commenting on people who were in frats but more on people who act like they are in one in law school with their equally retarded friends. Good job IRACing though.

Ok Look, I had tons of social options in college. I went on real spring breaks to warm climates. And I read that Mr. Montauk book about how to get into law school cause it works. But the reason I still choose to be a wanna be frat boy is that I dont have class until 10am and it is more fun to do that than anything else I would rather be doing. The glory years don't have to stop when college ends.

Trying to hang on to college your glory years in grad school is like online dating. Lame and more than a little creepy. You sould like a guy who owns a number of A+F hats and high-fives strangers in bars after getting drunk.
