lulz @ Michigan or Notre Dame being held above UChicago and Northwestern in the Midwest
To be fair if we are talking lay prestige nobody knows what UChicago is, even in Chicago.
Its really embarrassing. Though anyone who knows much about academics really places a high value on UChicago. But said person would then look down at ND for being overrated.
+1 I've heard that UChicago is oftentimes confused with the University of Illinois at Chicago, particularly by those in Chicago. I guess the Galllup poll proves it.
I know UofC students hate it when lay people and even other college students think they go to UIC (the local TTT). The disparity is much greater than Penn vs Penn State.
