<p>Ahmen! This should be stickied</p>

<p>As a corollary to 68., 69. The P in "HYP" actually stands for Penn.</p>

<p>UCB, its a fact you cant learn anything from someone with below a 2100 ;]</p>

<p>Actually...Duke IS full of racists...</p>

<p>I went their for a campus tour, and I'm [people were looking at me like I was an alien.</p>

<p>Felt pretty hostile, if you ask me...not that I'm saying anything...</p>

<p>^^^</p>

<p>What are you that they were looking at you oddly?</p>

<p>warblers,
You did all that in an hour?? I'm impressed. :) </p>

<p>Job well done. </p>

<p>Maybe add the following:
68. Students that attend colleges ranked outside of the Top 25 are screwed for life.<br>
69. Everybody knows that the athletes at highly ranked colleges like Stanford, Duke, Northwestern, Rice, Vanderbilt and Notre Dame could never cut it academically on an Ivy campus.</p>

<p>Actually, the C in "HYPSMC" stands for...</p>

<p>Is there a big athletics scene at Northwestern?</p>

<p>warblers</p>

<p>Thank you! I really needed this laugh after the day I had.</p>

<p>Care Bears and Brown are now forever linked in my psyche.</p>

<p>But I am gonna fess up -- before CC there were one or two of these I <strong>did</strong>believe were true...</p>

<p>

Haha, around 45 minutes, actually. A lot of these have been percolating in my thoughts for a while, so it took less time than you might think to write it all out.</p>

<p>


</p>

<p>You don't go here. It's DEFINITELY not a racist community, end of story lol.</p>

</p>

<p>Yes. Certainly it varies by sport and Northwestern is not nearly as energetic as the big state schools that it regularly competes with. But compared with its peer colleges like the non-HYP Ivies, absolutely, positively yes.</p>

<li>Don't bother visiting colleges, talking to internet experts about prestige is the best way to find out where you should go to college.</li>

<p>Good luck to everyone still awaiting admission news this year.</p>
