anyone got a feel for the whole 'GULC being super competitve' thing?
class of 09.
i think most of the discussions about how competitive it is are ridiculous. none of the students i have talked to have complained about the general atmosphere. people share notes, help others, etc. of course there are hyper-competitive people in the mix, but i'm sure that's the case everywhere. i think people just latch onto rumors and inflate them without adequate knowledge of what's really going on. if you look at the student satisfaction surveys, gulc students are pretty happy compared to students at other schools. if it was a super-competitive atmosphere, it seems like this satisfaction would diminish. i could be naive, but i think the competitiveness is overblown.
Look at my rants about why I hated my UG. I was specifically looking for competitiveness when I was checking out law schools, and I didn't find much at Georgetown.
I think it's mostly a result of Xoxo posts about the need for prestige.
LSD = useful advise and information
