I don't like Texas either, but shouldn't we spare Austin?

I don't like NYC either. Agree on NYU and Columbia (don't care about Ivy).

Since that seems to be the thing y'all do around here.

Hmm... I wonder why LA doesn't have an NYU clone.

The best school here is Cal Tech

NYU students always live in Columbia's shadow...I think that has something to do with it

agreed. plus, columbia is in harlem, so it helps keep the kids a little grounded in reality

I hate snobby little rich kids.

There are a *&^% load of little Chinese kids from Hong Kong here, that went to USC on their parents' money, and now roll around in BMWs without jobs.

Here are my overall thoughts (a lot of this is reductive or flippant, so be warned):

Yale                 pro: everything except con: New Haven
Stanford        pro: weather, environment, prestige    con: Palo Alto kinda boring
Harvard           pro: prestige, Boston    con: winter winter winter
Columbia       pro: New York, quality    con: not good neighborhood
NYU                pro: NY, neighborhood    con: not as much prestige
Chicago          pro: prestige, clerkships    con: cold, neighborhood
Michigan       pro: college town, quality    con: you're in Michigan
Virginia        pro: quality, COL   con: you're in small-town VA
Penn                pro: quality   con: not a big fan of PA
Duke                pro: quality, COL   con: Durham
Northwestern  pro: quality   con: no WE
Cornell           pro: New York   con: Ithaca
Boalt               pro: prestige, Bay area  con: GPA whore
Georgetown    pro: DC  con: bigger class size = harder placement
