Yeah I agree, if you are insecure This is it, in a nutshell. He's got such Ivy dick-envy that he can't see straight. There's nothing wrong with OSU or a state school. Cunny has it in mind that he's really in competition for these uber-elite Waspy positions... well... I don't see it happening. If he transfers to XXYY Elite School, he'll still be behind the curve and behind those kids who've been there/done that already. At least at OSU he can work his ass off, make good connections, and get a lot of work done. He's a smart guy and can do whatever he wants... I just wish he'd stop pissing his pants about his school. I've studied at the best, the middle, and the pretty crappy... given some life circumstances that have intervened. There are certainly some differences all in all, but a lot of it is in what you do with it and the research/work that you do.
