hm that's a lot of cornell hate...
while a lot of people don't recognize that cornell is an ivy
to not know columbia is an ivy in the northeast is very, very rare
i grew up in the northeast and many of my friends went to boarding schools in the area as well
i understand your point but it seems a bit exaggerated

I would give somebody who went to Cornell the same amount of respect as somebody who went to HYP if that counts. But I would also give the same level of respect to someone who went to HYP as I would to somebody who went to county community college. I wasn't raised to change the level of respect I give dependent on the school somebody went to...
