wow you're incredibly condescending on pretty much every thread you post on. especially "bitter T3 rejects" like could you be more pretentious?
This is the person who tore me down for claiming that HYP people get a boost in admissions to Y (based off of the "intuition" that it's absurd to think that 1/3d of the most numerically qualified candidates would come from three UG schools, particularly as UG admissions are subjective and only loosely meritocratic). Y/other elite schools would never openly admit that they engage in elitism with respect to UG schools, just as there aren't objective studies of the long-term career value of a HYS degree. So we have to rely on supposition and inference based on available data. And she/he is now relying on anecdotes from uber-successful HYS grads to make a decision, lol.
