The general consensus is that people are much, much, much less douchy than expected. I think we all were terrified we'd come in and meet 253 huge douches we couldn't stand, but that hasn't really been the case. People are nice and for the most part down to Earth. Blah blah blah collegiality.
Of course, it's also possible that we've all just become douches since law school began and haven't noticed the transformation. Still. At least we're not Wharton. They win hands down in the douche department.
I have to agree as to the Wharton students, especially the undergrads (MBAs, undergrads, and law students are often in classes together at Wharton). But even there, it is easy to look past it.
I transferred from a school outside the T-14 and I don't think the students at Penn are "douchey." Very few gunners. In the 1 class I have with 1Ls (an elective), the only gunner is an LLM! Hilarious. Okay, maybe there is 1 other semi-gunner.
There might be a little social awkwardness in the 1L class, but it wears off pretty quickly and is no different from what I would expect at any law school.
On the whole, the students are very personable and people I enjoy spending time with. (er... with whom I enjoy spending time.
