<p>Is Caltech uber hard and do a lot of bros drop out? Same with MIT. </p>
<p>And I understand at Cornell people have tended to jump off bridges to avoid the humiliation of dropping out. Any other noteworthy STEM focused colleges that do this?</p>
<p>I've also heard stuff about homicidal tendencies of competitiveness at top STEM schools (although that may be hyperbole, I'm naive enough to take everything at a literal level). Say, Johns Hopkins students sabotaging others because, well who wants other people to pass a class?</p>
<p>So basically I'm curious about any schools that are notable difficult to the point where students drop off/kill themselves/kill each other/etc.
Here's a list of schools that I'm mildly interested in too -
Cornell, Brown, Columbia, MIT, Harvard, Princeton, UPenn, Yale, Stanford, Tufts, USC, Northwestern, U Chicago, UVA, Duke, JHU, Cal Tech, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, U Mich Ann Arbor, Northeastern, Carnegie Mellon, NYU.</p>
