Funny story, i watched a football (american) game between harvard and columbia. The performance was passable.. but the harvard cheerleaders...

best thing ever.

whenever harvard fucked something up, or columbia did something right... they would chant

"That's ok, that's ok you're gonna work for us someday! Go Harvard!"

honestly it was pretty slick.

You have no idea what you're talking about.

Even if you don't care about the actual education part, and all you care about is the money, then an Ivy league education is one of the best investments you can make - and that's especially true for Harvard.

Where's the swindle?

Oxford is probably more stressful in a lot of ways. Undergrads have very intensive work schedules where they write at least one 2,000 word paper a week, and then have to discuss it in person with a prof and a group of 2-3 other students. It can be really intimidating. Also they're entire grad is dependant on one final exam at the end of their degree. That's some insane pressure.

>>
>>702460618
I don't know, some people hate it because it's pretty relaxed for an Ivy. You can take classes pass/fail, you don't +/- grades (you just get an A, or B, or C, etc., no A+, A-, B+, etc.). It also has a reputation for being for "stoners."

I was not a stoner. I was probably dangerously intense about studying and shit, so I didn't really even see much of that side of the school.

But I think people hate it because it's more relaxed attitude disqualifies it as a legit ivy.

I mean, I don't know why I liked it. I made great friends, I learned a ton, and I thought the general campus atmosphere was great. Providence is pretty cool too. It's got good enough food.

But I finished, colleagues of mine who went to Princeton and Harvard and the like would say things like "Pppsshh, Brown isn't even an ivy," or "Did you take all your grades pass/fail?"

Thing is, I think the ivy distinction thing is bullshit anyway, so I just let them say that sort of shit, and after a few weeks they stopped because they weren't getting a rise out of me.

I don't get this. Do people not know that 50% of Harvard students get financial aid?

The only explanation I can think of is that people are sour they couldn't get in, and comfort themselves by saying "it's not because I wasn't smart enough, I'm just not lucky enough to have rich parents"

Work harder. Get a scholarship.

Don't be a fuckwit and make some friends that are in one. Pledges are always friends of friends. The frat "recruiting" isn't as common as you'd think. It's honestly not hard, they're always looking for pledges becasue without them, the chapter dies. Also they're basically slaves for a semester or 2.

Intelligence is, in part, a result of genetics. You can improve yourself by reading widely and engaging in conversations with people with diverse academic backgrounds. Studying always pays off. Also, learn how to think, not just regurgitate the facts you have memorized.

>>702461895
Don't do what I did and get trashed everynight in college and you'll do fine, I passed but my grades were subpar. Just have some fucking motivation and listen in class and do what they tell you, as long as you don't do the bare minimum you'll be fine.

that sounds pretty cool! I myself kinda hate grades, even though I've always gotten straight a's. So i really liked the pass fail thing, or Reed college's system of just never even telling you your grades.
I like that idea of being more relaxed and having more freedom, which gives the student more impetus and mobility to do their own work in a creative way.

It's been pretty amazing. I have an interest in a lot of Early Modern books, and having unlimited access to original copies of 300 year old books is great.

I can also sit in the same chair Adam Smith sat in while he was at the university and read his original copy of his work. It's really fabulous for someone who appreciates history.

The events are great. Tonnes of famous speakers come every week, and there's always a hyper fancy party going on somewhere. The formal Balls are magical. I wear a Tuxedo more than a hoodie in this place.

>>702462341
No school-wide required classes, just what's required for your major (or concentration, or whatever the fuck they call it). That can mean, in some cases, you'll have to take an English class if you're studying a science. And it can mean that you won't be exposed to certain things. So I strongly recommend, if you choose Brown, to take stuff that isn't necessarily in your comfort zone, or to sit in on a couple of classes in something you don't think is interesting.

To be fair, the price of ivy's--AND most US colleges--is insane. I say this having been to two ivy's, and as someone who will be paying off the loans for the next 30 years of my life. However, it's no better at A LOT of other schools. A friend of mine went to NYU, and he's in an even shittier situation with tons more loans, so I'm not hating on the ivy's here, just trying to say that reform in this area is necessary.

This is such a myth, physics isn't that complicated until you get in to quantum or thermodynamics.

Well, failing your dissertation defense is pretty uncommon. This is because 1) the defense, if you've done good work, is mostly a formality, and 2) a failure reflects poorly on the student, the student's major advisor, and the advisory committee as a whole.

Standford and Yale are probably the two schools who take most seriously the parts of your application that aren't just numbers. You'll have to do more than just having a 3.9 gpa and doing well on the LSATs for them to let you in. 3.9 is just at their median.

Could've sworn that was Columbia.

I'm a California local, as well. I'm driven and have high expectations for myself. My politics would get me vilified. I've been volunteering for the city on holidays, handing out soup for thanksgiving, but I haven't done it enough to really say I'm involved in the community. I've applied to be a police cadet, help around my community, but the Bay Area has contempt for law enforcement, so that shit really doesn't matter, either. I Might as well get involved with BLM.

I can explain the financial aid part easily: It's because you don't need to be rich to get in.

Tuition is very, very, high. Nobody is denying that. But very few (less than half) actually pay that amount.

Like I said, 12k isn't nothing, but if your parents can afford to pay 12k to send you to one of the best colleges in the world, that doesn't exactly make them rich. How much does a typical state school cost? Probably something similar.

And you answered your own question. Harvard had ~32,000 applications for ~2,200 spots. A LOT of those people were top of their class. They can't accept them all.

Which is what I've heard, as well. The federalist society is massive at U Chicago, too, which is another more-conservative-but-still-pretty-liberal-law-school. Federalist society was actually started at U Chicago. Yale/Stanford/Chicago got conservative law pipelines, much more so than say a Harvard, Columbia, or even Georgetown. which is another point for going to Stanford. Condi Rice is a professor at Stanford, too. Not sure what her political leanings are but she was still a member of the bush admin. Of course I'm not going to openly support trump. Pretty much social suicide anywhere in California except OC/IE/parts of SD

SLS is more conservative than Yale. i'm not in fedsoc but 2 of my good friends are co-presidents. Based on talking to them, its basically chicago > uva > sls and then maybe duke if we're talking conservative schools.

sls is the clear favorite. if you want to be in california, berkeley > chicago. They have way better ties to the bay area schools and more connections to LA/SD than chicago would.

Friend and female issues, and all that, Ive been dealing with, so I'd be okay with a reinvention.

All those business that could've used business/business law expertise and been more financially secure instead of doing the whole jumpung into the business and trying to sink or swim would've helped so many. My pops started a business around the 2008 housing crash. We lost everything and he had to give up his business. I want to be there for businesses that either go through that or want to avoid that situation because it really fucked us in a big way, fucked many others, as well.

Thanks mang. If there are any underage fags lurking, engineering school is hard, engineering work is easy as fuck. I drink 4/7 nights a week, spend half of my time actually working, and still get shit done. The biggest things you'll deal with are contracts and mongoloid subcontractors. Be smart enough to graduate, but develop dem people skillz.

not to burst your bubble man, but ~180k when you have 6 figure debt isn't really fuck you money. Especially when you're working 70 hour weeks.

Pretty much all of the startup/small business work is done in silicon valley, so that's another reason to aim for SLS.

I understand, no bubble bursting done. There's multiple ways of making income, though. SLS opens a lot of doors for me to explore

Amen bro. New kids fresh out of uni need at least two years of breaking in.

So far, the commute is slightly inconvenient, im younger than most classmates and im not going full time. I will say living off campus is hurting my social life but the year is still young.
>>
>>702474074
why arent you going full time?
>>
>>702474074
Depending on what year you are and what area of study you're in, you're definitely going to feel like your social life is suffering. Especially if you really care about your education and are aiming for those high marks. that's currently my situation.

A few reasons, I wasn't sure if I was ready for college so I decided to dip my toes in a bit before I committed, also I want to pay off my tuition within a few years of graduating if not when I graduate so I wanted to work and figure out investing to help me pay off my degree better.
Another reason although lesser than the others is my age, I graduated high school early.

I haven't declared a major yet. I'm taking one class now and three more next semester. Then next year i plan on going full time because I love cambridge and I think I'll be more ready
