I think our non-douchey 99% or so were overpowered by Tucker Max.

These are the reasons I am leaning towards it:
- QOL and COL - same as Dresq said
- small class size
- beautiful campus
- weather (Im from SoCal)
- good international programs - study abroad etc
- scholarship was very competitive

From posts I've read:
  • Ranking is currently 12 (so clearly it must be worse than every other school currently ranked higher :roll:)
  • Anti-south bias from those who (incorrectly) think it's all rednecks and racists down here. (It's actually a VERY liberal area, full of hippies, gays, and activists, OH MY!)
  • Anti-Durham bias from hearsay about crime. The crime is isolated and easily avoidable. The funny part is that this criticism often come from people headed to big cities, where crime is much worse.
  • People who think living in a big city is the bee's knees and small cities/college towns are crap.
  • Hatred of Duke basketball (which I sympathize with).
  • A misconception that the law school is somehow as preppy/fratty as the UG population.



I attend UNC-CH and I can tell you straight up that Duke's UG population is in no way preppy and most definitely not fratty. In fact Duke's "GDI-ness" is the brunt of many anti-duke jokes.

I was a dude who sat in the back and occasionally said something stupid. One time I said something remotely coherent about Erie, which is amazing because that was not a remotely coherent doctrine.

I think people are just quiet about it. It's always a little funny to match up the names and faces.

I don't think anyone in my section knows about this site either. Of course, I never really bring it up, so who knows?

Hey V8, remember to tell your section to vote for me for EVP. Also, the rest of you on here should vote for me for EVP as well. You should be able to figure out which one I am pretty easily. If you can't figure out who I am, ask V8. Elections are on Thursday!

I had to stop myself, I almost used your real name there.

What I should be doing: writing my brief.

What I am doing: browsing thread, figuring out who everyone is.

FML.
