The observation that follows is based on anecdotes (like pretty much everything else ITT), but I've noticed that the gunning is far worse outside the T14. A T14 student at median still has a decent chance at a job that can pay off loans. For a T1 student to have that same chance, he or she generally needs to be top 10% or better. I think that students, overall, study harder outside the T14.
