Philly had it right. Southerners are nice to strangers. If I'm in a strange town in the south, I can walk into almost any bar in and talk college football and make friends. This generally isn't true in the north. I've traveled the states quite a bit in my time.
Also, the women are hotter in the south.
It's a cultural difference between the NE and South. If you want to be around people who are "nice" and "polite", which to me is another way of saying that you want to be around people who don't directly challenge your opinions and why you hold them (albeit at times unnecessarily), then you may want to reconsider your decision to attend law school. The culture of law school is inquiry and at times that spills over into douchiness. Northerners are more used to this kind of thing, and see it as a kind of edgy charm, whereas southerners see it as them being assholes. If you're going to law school, you should probably get used to it.
Also, everyone is lying to themselves if they think girls aren't hotter in the south.
e: fwiw, I see the south's "Southern Hospitality" as pathetic hypocrisy... wasn't it only a few years ago you guys were running around lynching people for voting? I'm sure you see it differently.
Sorry for going off topic.... I would expect harvard to be slightly more douchey, but not so much moreso than other T14 schools.
