    Or no...I have one, always thought it was classic, though always wondered if I should have gotten the biggest size possible.

    Just curious if anyone else had one and what they had/thought of it. Thanks

    I have and wear my grad school ring. I didn't buy an undergrad ring...a keepsake to remind me of all the work it took to earn the right to wear it.

    Personally, I find most class rings a bit cheap looking.

    I did remember a guy buying a Harvard or Princeton ring even if he never set a foot on the relevant campus...
    Pathetic...

    in becomming interested in them I have found history on some schools that really get into the tradition, Texas A&M, Norwich, MIT, and the Citadel to name a few...kinda neat with the tradition and all.

    The Brass Rat (MIT) is definitely noticed by other MIT grads, and so comes in handy when you're at any kind of networking event, be at a conference, social mixer, or what not. So in those situations, I say by all means wear it!

    no/no

    Rings, watches, etc drive me crazy. I find them very uncomfortable.

    Same....I incorporated some of my undergrad activities to the design so it covers both undergrad and grad....also I wear it as a pinky ring.
