Why would it scare me?

It is scary because of how far ahead of themselves the high school kids get.  Like, "If I get a "B" in AP Chemistry, will it affect my chances of getting into Yale?"

And even worse IMO is they're all "which college should I go to if I want to go to a top 5 law school?"  This scares me on the "what is the world coming to" principle.

Exactly.  I can't even read those threads without gaping in disbelief.  But then again, gaping is a favorite pastime of mine.

I was a C/D student in high school. I just didn't care. Until I went onto LSN I had no idea undergraduate schools were even ranked! So, yeah, it's a little frightening.

You went from a 2.0 in HS to going to a #6 school?
