Not to say everyone will be like this, of course.
Whether or not what she perceives is true doesn't affect her motive in posting this thread.
Of course there's going to be elitism at top law schools. What did OP really expect to hear? No, no, it's all in your head?
ETA: This thread should have ended after the first post. Just worry about what you're doing and being happy with yourself
I actually don't get why you're so eager to make it a point that I was humble bragging. So if I go to HYS, I can't feel that the elitism in the law school is affecting me? But if I went to a much lower ranked school, my complaint would not be humble brag but a legitimate concern? If you're peeved about my use of emoji, then I didn't mean to say "oops you caught me (bragging)" but that "gee I guess H is notorious".
And yes, I naively thought people wouldn't act that way because somehow I thought we would be more mature. I don't think going to a more prestigious school automatically means you must expect elitism and shitty behavior. I now know that was a stupid expectation to have, but sue me for being idealistic.
ETA: but thank you to the rest of you for your thoughts and comments.
