I was thinking this exact same thing. The students at Fullerton all think they're really special for some reason. There's a big difference in attitude between Fullerton kids and the Cal Poly Pomona kids, despite the fact that the schools are within a 20 minute drive of one another.
I have some friends who go to Fullerton. One in particular tells me everyday how he feels like a failure because he wasn't able to go anywhere else. I feel bad he thinks that way, but he is doing extremely well now (which may in part be because of the competittion he faces). He will have a nicely padded GPA for PA school. Also, did anyone see that article saying the schools with the toughest grading scale/least grade inflation? It said CSUF had one of the toughest grading scales. Obviously that is skewed, but still made me raise an eyebrow.
I read that report too. So did the Fullerton kids. Then one of them started posting on facebook on how his school's the 2nd hardest in the nation. Behind Harvard.
I can't stand how obnoxious they are.
