Glad to be of service! But, I think it's true, though. I'm always impressed by the sheer diversity of achievement on this forum and how it fits into literally every category that keeps one from EVER getting "too full of himself." Quoth Star Wars: "There's alway's a bigger fish." Or, in SF terms, "Your walrus dick is never as big or as decorative as anothers." I've been on MANY forums over the years and to get this kind of excellent diversity is REALLY rare. That's probably why those of us who've been here a while came for the clothes, but stayed for the community. Anyway, enough praise. I'm a snooty liberal elitist, so let's get back to talking about our pricey snooty schools!

Clearly that is a quality that resonates with you. Perhaps you should look into transferring?
I'm not saying this in reference to Conne, but the "Harvard penis envy" extends even to other top schools. I knew friends/profs/etc at Duke and at Chicago (where I went for undergrad) who also had this sort of penis envy and kept comparing themselves positively or negatively to it and to the other top ivies (Princeton and Yale, especially). I NEVER understood this... Chicago is a great school and was the only one to which I applied. Be happy where you are, wherever it is. The grass ISN'T always greener on the other side...
