I was just wondering because alot of the other smart students suggest that i never apply there because it is a **** SCHOOL. Is tjis because of the whole George Bushs' daddy buying them a new gym gained him admission

    Well, you see, Pusha, most of the people who hang out on this forum are quite partial to Yale.... But there is this guy Byerly you could talk to ;).

    not that this is true, but it has the stereotype as being the cockiest/most arrogant ivy as in students thinking they are better than everyone else. each ivy has their own stereotype which usually arent very true. u wont know until u visit, so, dont judge anything on what you hear =P. i know wonderful people at yale.

    I've never heard of that stereotype, shrek. I've only heard that it's the "gay" ivy.

    I was under the impression that Princeton is the cocky/arrogant Ivy...that's been my experience, in any case.

    Thank heavens there's none of that at Harvard: http://www.harvardindependent.com/media/paper369/news/2004/04/15/Forum/Under.The.Gaydar-662178.shtml. No arrogance or cockiness either. Indeed I know some lovely people from Harvard. And they sure have a swell football team :cool:.

    All stereotypes.

    The beggining of that article was satirical/parodical. The end sounded like pro-homosexual propaganda. Which of the two was it?

    This thread is ridiculous.

    Actually, Yale seems to have less of a ****-y rep...to me anyway. Princeton - the stereotype seems to be more "snobbish", which is similar but not exactly the same as arrogant. That title is reserved for Harvard. All stereotypes, however, which can be switched around between HYP at wild abandon depending on who you talk to. Without a doubt you will find some snobby, ****-y, arrogant kids at any of these schools. Logically speaking, it doesn't make sense that the students at each school should be drastically different.

    Yes, vivaldi, I agree with you...

    1. How exactly is a college a "**** school"?
    2. Do Yale and Harvard alums have nothing better to do than to discuss rhymes about the number of gay people at Yale?
