As a Penn student, I'm pretty upset. I feel like that last minute loss to USC killed us. Had we won the Rose Bowl we would have passed NYU at 6 for sure.

Go out in the street and tell someone you went to New York University and they won't give two fucks. If I even say the word Georgetown in DC, they get on their knees.


When it comes to lay prestige (clearly the most important kind of prestige), this is the most widely accepted ranking, actually:

Harvard
Yale
Stanford
Columbia
Duke
UC Berkeley
Cornell

Actually Michigan sports ran a 250 million dollar defecit this year ....

Real question: Does NYU really not have a lot of lay prestige outside of the Northeast? In the northeast it has a ton of it (at least im my experience).

NYU is known as a decent school but people are more impressed that you're going to school in NYC than that you're going to NYU. Stern seems to have a lot of lay prestige in the northeast. I've heard tons of people say w/r/t b-school that Wharton is #1 and Stern is #2.

NYU Law as its own entity isn't well known: "Oh NYU Law. Isn't their law school campus in Tribeca?"

So she had to visit before making a decision.


Tiffany is reportedly interested in Yale, which accepts only 10 percent of applicants for its incoming class of 200.


However, she was too busy being MAGA and didn't get many academic undergraduate honors. She may have to settle for TT Harvard.

Of the three law schools she has publicly visited, Harvard (No. 2) is probably the best fit

Yeah and I dated some real winners before I got married too. There's a reason you don't commit on the first date.

It's mostly people trolling any non-Ivy (and Penn, because Penn).

What kind of half-ass excuse for an elitist puts a public school alongside the likes of Harvard? For shame!

Depends, I grew up in Florida (Tampa area) and NYU/Columbia def had lay prestige in my area. That said I still think anecdotally it was Duke up top, and if you went out of a city I'm sure it would have been the only non FL state school people knew

No. https://record.umich.edu/articles/athle ... 017-budget

"Based on preliminary results, the Athletic Department currently projects a balanced budget for FY '16. The operating budget saw lower-than-budgeted spectator admissions in basketball and non-conference ice hockey contests as well as higher-than-budgeted costs in student financial aid and team and game expenses. Those items were offset partially by lower-than-expected facility expenses and other budget management initiatives."

This is kind of what I thought but I've seen it now in several different threads so I was starting to think it was serious.

Tbh my biggest complaint about UVA is the lack of lay prestige.

I told someone here I was going to UVA on a full ride and they're like, "Well, you could always try to shoot for Vanderbilt! They're basically Ivy League."

Starting a conspiracy theory here for Tiffany admission... The last five Trump appointments who are lawyers...Gorsuch, Acosta, Rosenstein, Brand, Perez. All Harvard Law.

NYU does not have lay prestige where I'm from. I mean, if by "lay prestige," you mean "lay prestige among a certain class of highly educated person," then Penn and Cornell and the other ivies definitely have it beat, just because people tend to know a little bit about how good a school's UG program is and extrapolate from there. If you mean "lay prestige among actual laypeople on average," then everything below Princeton Law School is basically a wash.

GTFO:
Chicago, NYU, Michigan, Virginia, Penn State, Northwestern, and I'm not even gonna include GULC because non-T13s are not worth mentioning.


Looks like you have a case of both mental midgetry and lay prestige midgetry. You're telling me the word "Georgetown" doesn't set off 5 alarm prestige fires? Get the fuck out of the thread. From now on, you only speak here when I give you permission.

Harvard
Yale
UChicago
Northwestern
Michigan
Duke
Cornell
Stanford
Penn

Not commenting on Texas or Georgetown, although Georgetown is more well-known b/t the two.

I'm in the Midwest and, in my experience, Georgetown has a ton of lay prestige. It's weirdly the school my non-lawyer family, friends, and coworkers are most impressed by.
