I think if you are motivated, you can get a good education almost no matter where you go. The added value of the "top" schools is perhaps from the people you get to meet. Those fantastically interesting and brilliant people who make you realize how you are truly insignificant (in a good way).

After all the dick measuring and servile insurrection from the forum peasantry, that is probably the most meaningful post made on the subject. Congratulations.

Designed as a compliment to the Ping K15 irons, the Ping K15 hyrbid allows you to pptimize your set to improve your ball flight, and build consistency in your game. This hybrid replaces harder-to-hit long irons, and relies on a patent-pending design that creates lower-spinning, higher-launching shots that fly straighter and longer. A large internal weight pad in the hybrid produces a high MOI for added forgiveness. The hybrid's offset hosel and face relationship increases launch and lowers spin.




Toe Weighting
A large internal weight pad significantly increases the MOI and stabilizes the club face for consistent distances across the hitting surface.

I have multiple Ivy degrees and think Ivies are fine, but I wouldn't pick an Ivy over a another top school like Chicago or Stanford just because it's an Ivy.

I'm really envious of how you americans get a varied undergrad experience: here in the uk, we typically take classes in only one (MAX two) subjects.

I picked Middlebury over a couple "lower" Ivies and I'm pretty happy with my decision. Small, elite LACs like amherst, williams, midd, swarthmore, and pomona should definitely not be overlooked compared to their bigger Ivy siblings. The small atmosphere certainly has some advantages.

Lol are you mad you didnt go to a good school? Im sorry Your "evidence" is far from compelling and probably just made up. And for the record, MIA, Caltech, or Stanford arent part of the Ivy Leauge, retard. I dont know how people like you exist. Are there smart people at state school? Yes. Is your maco econ different than mine? No. Am I surrounded by smarter peers who will be a more valuable network later on, you can bet your ass I will.

I agree with this too.

I'm glad you got a second chance to argue with some anonymous ignoramus on the internet.
