You know how else?
So class rank is both 60% and 30%? What the hell are you talking about?
I could go on. But basically you're an idiot.
Bro, calm down. Let's do a bit of fact-checking on the word "diction." I don't wish to sound pedantic, but here are the definitions of "diction" for your amusement:
1. style of speaking or writing
as dependent upon choice of words
: good diction.
2. the accent, inflection, intonation, and speech-sound quality manifested by an individual speaker, usually judged in terms of prevailing standards of acceptability; enunciation.
My junior year high school English teacher was somewhat of a real PITA who stressed the finer points of "diction" when writing a basic essay. I'm more than just slightly confident he knew what he was talking about. Pronunciation is but another definition and one I was clearly unconcerned with. I think from this we can agree there's nothing more to discuss.
Sorry bro, made a mistake. Fixed it by replacing "class" with "school."
Again, this metric is just something I came across while roaming the TLS employment boards, but one I personally consider to be fairly accurate though admittedly debatable under circumstances I already noted.
BTW, I never said all T14 schools are Ivies. I referred to "HYS" and "Ivies" as examples of schools within T14 that wield a lot of weight from their reputation.
Word of advice
: If you're going to call someone an idiot, make sure you've done a bit of fact-checking facts lest you look like the idiot. Also, even on an internet forum, don't let your hemorrhoids flare up from the misplacement of a simple word.
I'm not a big fan of internet flames BTW.
