    even Vanderbilt and Duke

    Great, world class universities. Non Ivy.

    Let's not forget McGill and University of Toronto! LOL

    I got some Ivy degrees at the Saks sale, but I feel like I have learned as much on my own.

    There's a much longer list of world class schools that aren't ivy leagues than that.

    Obvious ones would be Northwestern, Swarthmore, Emory etc...

    I feel like the Northwesterns and Emorys of the world have less name cachet than they should.

    Then again, I think only DUMBER PPLZ have this perspective. Most people with a good education will know that Northwestern and Emory are very good universities.

    Yes they definitely do, except for Medill and Kellogg. Northwestern is ranked #11 or 12 in all the famous lists or whatever, but I doubt most people know it.

    Yep. They have a really great history department there. One of my favorite historians got his PhD at Northwestern.

    I wish this thread would die. It has become one huge ePenis contest.

    Unrelated, but my e-penis is 9 parsecs long.

    I hate Northwestern and think it's an overrated school. Don't feel like getting into why (and no, I neither applied to nor was I rejected from it).

    Some people simply aren't intellectual. I am, but most are not, and would not take advantage of the opportunities available at a school such as mine. Even most of the people at my school aren't purely "intellectual"; this isn't some kind of thinkers' bohemia (you'd have to wait for a PhD program for that), but I do think the vast majority of people here have that element in them.

    I think it really comes down to this; would you rather have a conversation with people from a state school, or a traditional elite private school? I'd rather have the conversation with the latter, but many people would rather talk to the former. It doesn't mean anything positive or negative, it's just a preference.


    I have three degrees from a prestigious Ivy school. My older child, who went to a state school, got a fabulous education; met good, intelligent people; and was accepted and wooed by the three Ivy Ph.D. programs to which she applied.

    George Bush graduated from Yale and Harvard Business School.

    Johns Hopkins is not underrated.
