Ivy league is for kids who didn't get into ASU bitches!

Seriously, though, no Ivy for me. I want to go to Stanford for grad school, and I want to go to UCSD for undergrad. Biology major FTW!

I'm going to the Johto League schools which in my opinion, is personally better than any Ivy league school ever.

I go to Cornell. Its awesome. You get the private colleges with more smart kids, but still cool people. Then you get the state-funded colleges with athletes and the feel of a normal state school. It's the best of both worlds. I'm only paying less than 1/5th the full price a year too, they give great financial aid (Ivy's don't really give normal scholarships, or else everyone would get one).

There is a war going on for your mind.

If you are thinking, you are winning.

It's practically impossible. I know a guy who aced every AP test, ACT, SAT, all that, and all state music player. He was waitlisted and didn't get in. Either cure some disease when you're twelve, be a black female, or good luck.

The MIT admission rate is 12%, considering that the percent of applicants admitted to Harvard is like 8% and Brown at 14%, MIT is definitely up there in that high caliber pool.

Seeing as it's not in the Ivy League or anything...
There's a very clear definition of Ivy League; It doesn't come down to what people personally consider.

Hey did you join just to do this poll? Who do you work for?


I don't work for anyone, I'm matriculating as a senior at Princeton University, but I work closely with some members of the faculty that are involved in the undergraduate admissions process.

It is one of the most selective schools in the world. It is harder to get into then any of the Ivys really, except Harvard and maybe Yale or something.

Good luck, you are going to need it. Try sleeping with the admissions dean.

I applied the MIT and wasn't accepted. A girl in my Physics II class who had much lower ACT, SAT, and even AP test scores and didn't bother to interview was accepted however.

Judging by your username and the nature of the threads you've started/posted in so far, would I be wrong in assuming that you joined UG just so you could talk about college admissions and brag about going to Princeton? Forgive me, but I don't think UG is the place to do that. There are plenty of forums elsewhere that are dedicated to the subject, and where people would be eager to hear about your ivy league pretensions.
#32
The elevation of the Ivy League by the public to its current state of prestige is laughable. I chose my current institution over two members of the Ivy League, and I've never regretted that decision.

I don't mean to suggest that the members aren't fantastic schools, but I find the Ivy craze that has swept a certain number of the population to be ridiculous.

I apologize if I came off that way, but I'm only here to share my knowledge and assist any other UG member if they so chose to apply to an Ivy League institution. If I wanted to brag, I would have done it four years ago when I was first admitted.

Nothing I suppose.

As a senior at Princeton, I am required to compile a senior thesis as a graduation requirement. I've been studying the dynamics of an online community, and I've been using UG as a representation of the forum aspect.

I just thought that while I'm here I can use some of my knowledge of the admissions process to help anyone that might need it here.

Well since I'm going to college in Boston right now, wouldn't mind Harvard or MIT. But I would never be able to withstand the pressure.

Early decision is binding.

Early action is not.
