This is obviously not to say that there aren't people at Harvard who are down to earth and genially great people.
I visited HLS last year (not that I had a chance of getting in, I just figured since I was in town for BC already, why not) and I got the same overall impression while I was there.
I have only known one person who went to Harvard and he was a pompous prick. He was always correcting other people's grammar, even people who were not native English speakers.
I have only met 1 non asshole from Harvard. He was my boss and the guy was hilarious. probably an anomaly for Harvard, but he also only went for undergrad. Harvard Law has PSYCHOLOGISTS ON STAFF to help the poor babies who have never received a B in their entire lives when they see they didn't get an A+ on their exams. Harvard kids are detached from the real world - total pretencious pricks.
