Yeah, it probably does although I wonder if it's worse at the higher tier schools. Maybe too many people who focused on academics at the expense of personal development or something.
We had one of those "Look how HARD I'M WORKING" cultures. Didn't really even matter if people actually were
working all that hard, it just created an environment where everyone assumed you were supposed to be stressed out all the time.
