This isn't a new article, but I was just thinking about this today after seeing so much of it in my fellow students.
Do you see a lot of this too? Does it ever irritate you? IME they are dead on when they talk about schools as being perceived as service providers - the I pay you tuition and you provide me with a degree sort of thing. It seems like there are so many of these students around. I might even say they are the rule rather than the exception. But then I also go to a school with a well-earned reputation for snootiness. And honestly I wouldn't care - because you don't work hard, you don't get good grades, none of my business - but the part that bothers me is that I work so much harder than they do, but in most cases they're graduating with little to no student debt because their parents are paying for it, and I'm going to graduate tens of thousands of dollars in debt. Frustrating.
Ever see this? Does it frustrate you too?
