I also agree that no one should be ashamed of the school they go to. I do admit though, that I felt a certain amount of pressure to attend a top school. This "pressure" resulted in a combination of ambition, guilt, shame, sadness, regret, but most importantly, it gave me the drive to really push myself to succeed.
I have met plenty of people who felt proud to attend my old T2, and sometimes, it feels like it is really a matter of perspective. Some of my friends who attended community college or state schools felt really happy and had so much pride to attend a top 100 law school. On the other hand, I had some friends who attended top 20 undergrads who felt like they should have gone to a top school as well. I would never say I was ashamed, and I proudly told people where I went. However, there was a certain "atmosphere," especially at the beginning of the school year where people often talked about where they "wish" they went or where they would want to transfer to in a heartbeat (usually the higher ranked local school). I can certainly see how it could be kind of tough to tell a circle of friends and family (who went to top schools) that you are going to some non-top law school.
From just looking at the poll, I am guessing that there is a certain amount of elitism that may also drive the shame. It is not even surprising to see that a good portion of people do feel that shame, leading to thoughts of transferring. On the other hand, schools try to counter this by instilling in their students a sense of pride. I guess it sucks to hear that some people are really ashamed of their schools, but I guess that is just how it is sometimes. Either way, remember to smile and be happy.
Where did you transfer to arrow? ( I remember you being #1 at your old school)
