I learned in my intro to psych class that attractive people are treated better than unattractive people. Do you think this is true?

In some instances, yes. But attractive people are often treated poorly by members of the same sex. So while an attractive female may be let out of a ticket (let's say for something that isn't serious) by a male officer, I believe that a female officer would be more apt to be harsh. That could be for any number of reasons, but just an example.
When I worked at this gym, I once overheard two of my female employees saying that they had told this girl we weren't hiring (even though we were) and I'm sure it was because she was gorgeous and god forbid someone take attention from them. I'm just trying to paint a picture of how it's not ways rainbows for people who are really attractive.
But I would say in general, attractive people, men and women, have it a little easier... Whether it's people being more eager to be helpful or just letting it slide...2
