    Is it natural for people with a highly valued degree from a top uni to look down on those completing an average degree at an average/low rated uni?

    I find it annoying that people judge others (initially) based on their uni and degree.

    not only on TSR, but like people in real life just verbally destroy those for not going to a russel group uni. I've seen it happen quite a few times in my school. Very sad indeed.

    Even if people do work hard and get into a top tier uni, I don't think that gives them an excuse to be arrogant. Personally, I think arrogance in general is such a filthy trait to have.
    I agree that arrogance is an undesirable trait. But sometimes the competitive aspect is good because it encourages the underdog to succeed. The problems arises when either:
    >the comparative gap is too wide e.g. upper middle looking down on working class.
    >people looking down on others for their choices. E.g. there is nothing wrong with being a stay-at-home mother.

    Unfortunately this is TSR and you often find the "arrogant angry young person complex" which is distasteful.
