SOM Secret Society?

Rumor has it that a group of students is trying to form a secret society at SOM. My only question is, Why? There seems to be no purpose.

This isn’t Yale College, where there are thousands of undergraduates. There are only 200 of us in each class here. And if membership in this group of 200 doesn’t make you feel special enough, if you insist that you’re better than your classmates, then maybe you should consider continuing your education at a school more worthy of YOU – your genius, your potential for future success, your [insert other highly subjective criteria used to determine elite status here].

Hopefully, this remains a rumor. Hopefully, the people involved will realize that this isn’t a good idea . . . or at least explain why they feel that a secret society is necessary. Who knows? There may be a very good reason for it. I doubt it, but maybe.
