It's weird how lay-prestige works.

I'm from California and I never new UChi was an elite institution until getting to college, but for some reason Georgetown raises peoples eyebrows

Well, to be fair, it's not on the same level as HYP. Still excellent, but those three rule.

But I'd say the South's ranking is similar to my Midwestern friend two posts above me. For me, honestly, until I started law school research I'd never heard of Chicago, Georgetown, Berkeley, and was only vaguely aware of Northwestern (for sports), NYU, and Penn. If had asked me to guessed the rank of the law schools my top 5 would have been 1.) Harvard 2.)Yale 3.) Columbia 4.) Duke 5.) Stanford or Cornell

Genius, you ever regret picking Yale ? Do you think it's overhyped ?

He's probably cool with it.
