No way, I'd go into a schlagende Studentenverbindung though they are full with Lawstudents like myself and are around the traditional universities in the south (I'll be going to Freiburg University, which has the reputation as being the best university in humanities in Germany and an excellent renomee in law- plus plenty of attractive female med-students, a lot of sun, great food and beer/ wine, snow in the winter and all that).
I'm currently considering joining a more liberal fraternity for the cheap living, plus it's very hard to find apartments in those towns but also for living in a 'community' of interesting people [kind of boring being around only law- and business-students though- but I don't like the 'we will take care of these kids together'-apartment-sharing communities either] that you will meet for the rest of your life once a year as a big 'family' of all former members.
It is a real misconception many people have about studentenverbindungen in Germany though that they are all right-wing (that's moreso the case in Austria- let's just say this 'dude' was austrian and they should have expelled him from the country after the Kapp-Putsch in 1923, but I'll stop there).
There are fraternities that have black members, members of turkish heritage and so on- most are just big communites that want to preserve some traditions (like rowing, binge-drinking, dancing lessons, cocktail-parties, proper attire and manners).
Only a small fraction of those frats actually still duells and they wear heavy protective gear during that (only your cheek can be cut, which is the case with about 1/5 of all those who did their, usually 5, duells). You want to watch out not to be messing with the guys from the Deutsche Burschenschaft though- these are the guys that gave the fraterniteis the bad reputation.
If you think I made those little references to Nazi history because I'm a right-wing nut; I'm not (member of the liberal FDP since I was 16). It's just that a) not many other intesting things happended (the plastic yogurt cup was introduced in Germany on a 10 may...) and b) I just a had a history exam (see the memers pictures).
That got me thinking I need a Barbour jacket to check another item off the 'every law-stuent has to have a- list'.
