Is Harvard the best college?
« on: July 24, 2012, 12:28:49 PM »
Correct me if I am wrong, but Harvard, for some reason, is at the top of the totem pole of society.  I am going to apply there.  Is it the best college in the world?

I seem to recall from another thread that you had mentioned that you had a Bachelors degree, but were considering trying to get a second Bachelors.

As I understand it, neither of the two schools at Harvard that offer Bachelors degrees offers admissions to someone who already holds a Bachelors degree. Although they obviously have a wide variety of graduate programs to choose from.

The other day I found a book written by my father, Lloyd, who graduated from Harvard.  The Sophia Press published the book.

By the way, what does "Ice tea is wet" mean?  Julie, are you attracted to guys who go to Harvard since Harvard, for some reason, is at the top of the totem pole?

It is a statement that has no relevance to the thread, in the same way your father's college has no relevance.

Well, my father's college may have no relevance to this thread, but, in terms of admission to Harvard, it does.  See, this is from Harvard's website:

"Are a student's chances of admission enhanced if a relative has attended Harvard? 
The application process is the same for all candidates. Among a group of similarly distinguished applicants, the daughters and sons of College alumni/ae may receive an additional look. "

Reasonable minds disagree about your assertion. In some circles, Princeton is more highly regarded because of its eating clubs and because "Prince" is included in its name. Others argue that Yale is at the top of the "totem pole of society" because Rory Gilmore chose to attend Yale over both Harvard and Princeton. Finally, others argue that Oxford is the best because it's British.
