It varies, but they have more pride on the campuses that are the only law schools in the town I have noticed.
For many they come from backgrounds where any college at all is impressive, so those ones take the most pride in being in law school at all (which is fine, nothing wrong with pride I guess)
Then you get the ones who tell the two part lie.
1. I "CHOSE" to go to law school even though I had "perfect" scores to get into medical school like my parents wanted me to, I just took the lsat for fun and did "good" on that too.
2. I "CHOSE" cooley since (random reasons x)
Followed of course by "I don't care if my parents cut me off but didn't do so to my brother who is a sheep at went to Harvard Medical......I am my OWN PERSON AND PROUD!!!!"
I have seen that several times too.
