once again, what r u basing ur opinion on. u only visited 4 schools, didin't sit in on all classes, and don't know every person that goes to a tier 4 school. there are other reasons people go to tier 4 schools besides not being able to get into a tier 1. i am sure there are many people in the top schools that u don't want to be in class with.
ur opinions are ur opinions and a respect that, but the constant bashing of lower tier schools on this board in needs to stop. people come here looking for information and may only be considerin tier 3 or 4 schools for what ever reason and find a really unwelcoming, hostile, and elitist environment. this site loses its intended purpose when we resort to more bashing than disseminating useful and helpful information.
