    Again, I don't notice that disdain here (we don't have engineering, so the dynamics are different). No one cares. And also science oriented students (other than those majoring in it alone or w/a science major) seem to get lower grades in humanities and certainly social science courses than peers that are inclined toward the subject (the only difference may be that getting low in such a class means C+ to B as opposed to science courses meaning C- to B-. Basically grades go lower). Many aren't used to producing beyond what is considered high quality writing at the HS level, and being in the sciences may have decreased their writing ability as a whole. The disdain may be more common at places w/a big engineering scene. That's just speculation though. I don't understand why it would even occur in that case. I'm betting people at Vandy care less than what could be revealed by that article or the thread you found. It probably won't be noticeable once you get there. Your pursuits are noble and make lots of sense, I see lots of people do the same thing, and they like it and people don't display disdain toward it. If anything, it makes them more interesting. Don't worry about it. Enjoy the benefits of having reinforcing backgrounds and your time at a great school :) .
