My schools requires students to wear protective metal collars to prevent throat-cutting incidents.

If you don't get shanked in the bathroom at ASW, you actually get more scholarship money.



Seriously, though, I think it depends highly on the school. Talk to current students at the school(s) you are considering to get a vibe.

I don't think it's that competitive. After I ripped out the pages of the North Carolina Digest that were needed for the LRW assignment, everyone else pretty much gave up and I got an A without much work.
