Lol, no it's not.
Actually, it really is. Yet another person blinded by the Ivy League designation. The Ivy League is an athletic conference. Why is Duke not as good because they are in the ACC?
No, if you look at my post history I actually made an argument against the ivy league distinction. But duke just isn't as good as penn or other non ivy privates. Uchicago, stanford, even NU are a step above the level of duke, nd, emory, rice, etc. outside a few select areas in the south duke is just considered a good school, nothing great.
i'm with you on Stanford and Penn, but you lost me at UChi and NU... no way are they 'a step above' Duke. nor should Duke be lumped together with ND, Emory, Rice, etc. they're not peer institutions by any stretch of the imagination.
