    Your rationale for not liking the other schools? And why is MIT the best?

    When it comes to making fun of Conne, every post is like a parade. Yes, one of "those" kinds of parades.

    +1. I've learned never to be too quick to jump at posters for whom I don't know their full histories (because maybe he went to all of them!), but unless one actually attended all of those schools, I think it's hard to speak about "liking" or "disliking" them in any sort of objective way.

    Not to mention that MIT, Stanford, and CalTech aren't even in the Ivy League.

    I bet this thread will break down into 10+ pages of Ivy vs. Non-Ivy and then ultimately deteriorate into my Ivy school was better than your Ivy school. [​IMG]

    Well, it was. [​IMG]

    I think the reason is more that no clothes look normal on him. Check out one of the many pictures the boy posts of himself... he's got no ass!

    So, what was your favorite experience at Dartmouth? Did you know Dinesh D'Souza?

For example, no matter what the topic, there is almost always guaranteed to be a poster who knows more, has more, or IS more in just about every way. It's a healthy check for the ego and I think it's especially good when it comes to "Ivies." There are posters here who have gone to literally every "good" school in the nation/world and, while there, have done so much amazing stuff that it both amazes and infuriates you! There are also members who went to non-ivy schools who also are doing VERY well in life and got as much... or more... from their education. It's good for keeping things in perspective. Same with shoes... you think you are doing well and then aportnoy comes along. Same with literally everything around here from martial arts to workout schedules to suits to decorative walrus penises...

    i'd die for a Princeton or Yale BA. It would solidify my elitist credentials to the point of irrefutability. [​IMG]

    I do admire that you are not shy about being self depricating and being good natured, but I think your east coast elitist thing really is something you're almost proud of. I just do hope you realize how pathetic that could look to real elitists who do in fact fit the stereotype. I don't think one is allowed into that club with a degree from a football factory in the midwest.

    The kid knows he has no elitist credentials. It won't do any good trying to explain.

    Do you like historiography? What is it like taking a graduate seminar? (I had a roommate who was very into that, but I never got the chance to do this. I was in one in my field for one day, but then realized I was in way above my head.)
