Who is the smartest undergrad you've met at Princeton or anywhere else? In what ways did/does he/she display intelligence.

    There are so many smart undergraduates out there; and the word "smart" can be approached from so many different angles.

    Off the top of my head, one of my highly intellectual friends is now at UChicago.
    I don't know anybody from an Ivy League school.

    i know a girl whose an undergrad at princeton. she topped the year, so that would make her one of the smartest. but she's also from australia, which amazes me. she's an international competing against loads of americans, and yet she still comes first.

    she topped the year

    What do you mean by this?

    she won the Freshman First Honor Prize. It doesnt specifically say its for coming 1st in the year though it says its for 'exceptional academic achievement in the work of the freshman year'. only two freshman at princeton got it.. so i'd have to say she is very very smart?
