You know, Philadelphia really isn't all that bad. It's actually surprisingly fun. When I picked Penn, it was in spite of Philly, but now that I am here I love it. Tons of bars, resturants, clubs, and shopping. Lots of different kinds people (it's a very eclectic city) and always stuff to do. I'm liking it a lot.

THE MOST OFFICIAL LIST:

YALE
1. Nerds
2. Doesn't impress people nearly as much as you thought it would ("It's ranked #1.  Even above Harvard.")
3. Connecticut battles with Delaware for the most irrelevant state on the NE Corridor.

HARVARD
1. Colder than a caribou's nutsack
2. "I actually wanted to go here instead of Yale"
3. Way too prestigious, your head might explode

STANFORD
1. Having to explain how it's actually just as prestigious as Harvard or Yale
2. Motherf*ckin' East Coast 4 Life, Biyatch!
3. "Instead of sending a hold letter or a waitlist or rejection or something, maybe we'll just not say sh*t and assume they'll get the point."

COLUMBIA
1. Hey guys, in case you didn't notice, you're in New York City!
2. Having to sign and send in the "Agreement to go into BigLaw" contract with your tuition deposit
3. "I actually wanted to go here instead of Harvard"

NYU
1. "Why did you go there instead of Columbia?"
2. "I want to study International Law.  Or Entertainment Law."  Yeah, and I want to study Oral Sex Law.
3. "No actually it's ranked #4.  Yeah, right behind Harvard.  It's really prestigious."

CHICAGO
1. "Hahaha!  What?  Oh, that?  It's called laughter.  Just having fun.  F-U-N.  It's a noun.  It means..."
2. Nerdiest nerds in the city of Nerdville
3. Becoming dependent on Prozac and Adderall

PENN
1. Joe Pa probably doesn't have many years left in him (stolen from Pancho, it's too perfect)
2. If NYC is your successful father, Philly is your uncouth crackhead failure of an uncle
3. "I actually wanted to go here instead of Columbia"

UVA
1. Not white?  Not preppy?  Not an a**hole?  Tough sh*t.
2. Don't like what tiny Charlottesville has to offer?  Tough sh*t.
3. Possibly 2nd most obnoxious undergrads (Newsflash:  You aren't "Ivy-caliber", "Southern Ivy" or "Public Ivy", you're "Ivy rejects")

MICHIGAN
1. Knowing if you were there 20 years ago, you'd be in a top-3 school.
2. No, seriously.  This isn't funny.  Windchill is negative what?!?
3. Who the f*ck is trying to move to Michigan?

BERKELEY
1. "I actually wanted to go here instead of Stanford.  Stanford sucks, dude."
2. That garbage "Go hyphy, go stupid, go retarded" slang and music
3. "University of California does not care about black people"

DOOK
1. Worst undergraduate population ever (Highest "Do*chebag Rating" in US News)
2. Lacrosse team is having a down season
3. Coack K (aka Ratface), Redick, Laettner, Ferry, Collins, Wojo, etc., etc.

NORTHWESTERN
1. Kellogg's b*tch
2. Those winter winds are more oppressive than Mussolini
3. Ivy League athletics, Big Ten conference

CORNELL
1. Literally located in the worst place in the western hemisphere
2. The sky only varies between shades of gray
3. The butt of the Ivy League

GEORGETOWN
1. Admitting to a layperson that it isn't quite that prestigious.  "No, it's not really in the top 10, but it's in the top 14!"
2. "Hold up, it takes how long to get to the real Georgetown area?"
3. "I actually wanted to go here instead of [every other T-14]"

Shouldn't stanford and Harvard be switched in order ;)

So here's a short go- but only for the few schools I've actually visited or attended

Michigan
1) Blocked internet access during class.
2) SNOW.
3) Michigan's economy sucks, so if you have a significcant other, that might be rough.

Chicago
1) It's in the middle of Chicago's Southside.... can we say ghetto?
2) It's old...
3) Housing near campus not very nice, housing farther away from campus is pricey.

Northwestern
1) The commute or the cost of living in the middle of downtown Chicago.
2) Lack of community since almost no one has the money to live in the middle of downtown Chicago.
3) Business focused.

Georgetown
1) The area around it shuts down at 5, and there isn't much there before then...
2) Big classes.
3) Catholic institution- places some limits on what can be done there.

I'm not going to go through seven pages of posts to figure out if this was I joke. But I need to point out that Penn =/= Penn State.

Yes, it is a joke.

Penn?

Sounds like the Temple grad has some Penn penis envy.  ;)

Penn lost a lot of starters on both sides of the ball so I doubt they will finish in the top ten this year.

Also, who wants to go to law school in State College, PA?

HA!  You think I was a good enough student to have even applied there?!  Silly Towelie.  You're a towel.
