Stanford students 'better than other people'?

A telling quote from a Stanford student in today's San Jose Mercury News front-page story:

"When they welcome you to freshman orientation," Robbins says, "part of what they tell you is that you're better than other people."

Not smarter, not better at standardized test scores or kissing ass to get ahead, but unequivocally superior human beings than all those proles that attend state schools. I have to say, this quote typifies the holier-than-thou, aristocratic, snub-nosed attitude that runs through a lot of the student body (and faculty).
