I'm already annoyed......at this gunner-in-training. When someone asked if anyone had gotten their books from the co-op yet, he responded:
"You mean you've not read the introductory sections of each of your books yet, as well as memorized the first 5 cases? Uh oh.
I'm glad I went in and got mine, as being able to actually start reading in some of my casebooks is a nice relief. It has helped prevent me from imagining that the courses are going to be some impossibly difficult thing. Unfortunately, it has also confirmed to me that I won't be able to just read through the required reading once and be done with it."
Then, when everyone professed their hatred for him, he responded with this:
"The only restraint I've been exercising about reading the books is that I don't want to read too far in and get stuck with a lot of misconceptions on the material."
Earlier this month, in regards to someone mentioning the socratic method, he said this:
"I don't mind the Socratic Method at all. I'd love to get called on in class every day. Of course, I like to hear myself talk. I will dread when the teacher calls on the dumb student who didn't read the material the night before and also has a stuttering problem. I hope to never sound remotely close to that type of student. I also hope we don't have any in the class."
I've more or less liked everyone in the law school class that I've met so far. But I think this guy is gonna make me want to commit an intentional tort, and I don't mean trespass. And yes, he's in my section.
