    BUT WHY!REASONS PLEASE!
    This is an obvious question.

    MIT is regarded one of the very best in Engineering.
    MIT has a reputation superior to Warwick.
    MIT is a specialist university, and can hence dedicate more resources to its specialist subjects.

    ...

    I'm not saying that Warwick's bad. Just that MIT's better.

    It just occured to me MIT is not an official 'Ivy League' uni neway so mentioning it was pointless. I'm going back to my Warwick= Columbia statement. And just so you know reputation comes from age. Warwick is only 40. Let's not forget it lol. I mean I'm either going Warwick (40 years) or Edinburgh (over 400 years old), yet Warwick is higher in the tables. Things can only get better, the only way is up, and other 80's pop related quotes...

    Sure, Warwick is good, but it still has a long way to go to match the top dogs.

    In the words of Richard Feynman:
    "The theoretical broadening which comes from having many humanities subjects on the campus is offset by the general dopiness of the people who study these things..."

    Well now you say that I better shut up, cos it's not like the arts have any influence on a subject like Philosophy whatsoever. aside from Jean Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Albert Camus, Foucault, Derrida, Nietschze, Aristotle etc etc. Ur right. Us Art Subject students are complete dopes.
