While I'm pretty sure I'm straight Ravenclaw myself, the whole system is honestly horrible (and it shouldn't matter what others think about your house position, cause you know, once the sorting hat has placed you there, there's really nothing that can be done. No do-overs allowed).
Seriously, Hogwarts is not some shiny beacon of "the perfect school system". If anything, it's quite the opposite, with bullying being an accepted part of daily lives among students, and horrible teachers being untouchable because "being bad at teaching" isn't any reason not to be a teacher at Hogwarts. If anything, I'd be more worried about what I'd do with my wizarding skills, after school days at Hogwarts are over.
