My hang up is that while I'm more conservative than most of my classmates, I'm really not conservative at all. I am staunchly against Trump and his faction, and I strongly disagree with abusing the law to forward conservative policy. If I join, and this FedSoc ends up being a hardcore MAGA type space, I won't last long. But by that point, I'm afraid the rest of my classmates will have already disowned me as a FedSoc guy, and I'll basically be screwed both socially and in terms of networking.
I've read on here that some chapters of Fedsoc are know for being mostly legal moderates/libertarians, while others are basically hard right wing political groups to the point of trolling. Does anyone have any insight into what it's like particularly at CLS? I feel like directly asking people who are officers in it won't give me a very honest and realistic perspective.

As far as what your classmates will think--I have no idea. Try just being honest, reasonable, and not saying anything stupid? If that makes progressive students dislike you, you'll have to decide whether you're okay with that. Federalist Society folks won't think you're "on the team," but still appreciate fellow travelers.
