So I've been reading Law School Confidential, and in it the author makes several references to the competitive schools with nasty environments. We've all heard about them... places where people won't share notes, steal books out of the library, and basically do anything to get an 'edge'. In LSC he won't ever mention the schools' names, ostensibly to avoid having his ass sued into oblivion. He says things like "we all know which schools these are". Well, guess what? I don't know which schools these are!!!
LSC also lists a few school policies which may foster this type of environment. Off the top of my head I can remember that one of the policies was posting grades and/or class rank. Another was if the school doesn't aggressively pursue violations of the honor code.
Anyway, who know which schools are like this, or what else to look out for when visiting campuses?
I'll throw one name out there to get the ball rolling. I have heard from a few former students at BUSL, and they have both described this exact environment there.
