    These are the universities that matter:

    Harvard - Prestige
    Penn - Banker heaven
    Stanford - Techy heaven
    Princeton - For the truly elite
    MIT - gotta love those card counting nerds

    And seriously, who wants to do that whole yale thing?
    Is that general Penn or exclusively Wharton?

    Harvard
    Yale
    Brown
    Columbia
    Stanford

    These are heavily influenced by Gossip Girl and the Social network (for Stanford). Before watching either of them I probably would have included MIT and Princeton instead of Brown and Stanford.

    The ones I first thought of were:

    Harvard
    Yale
    MIT
    Princeton
    Berkeley

    But I don't know why I thought of Berkeley. Stanford or Columbia or CalTech probably ought to come above it.

    Surprised more people didn't mention Georgetown or Chicago. (even though I'm bitter against Chicago and their terrible disdain for Doctor Who-related essays.)

    Yale, Princeton, MIT, Stanford, Harvard, I'd say (not in order), but there are really too many to pick just five.

    Interesting notes...
    • No love for Chicago? Odd.
    • 3 of the Ivies (Cornell, Dartmouth, Penn) have received only one mention.
    • What's up with Boise State?
    • Brown is astonishingly high, and Berkeley seems low.
    • Stanford is receiving fewer votes than it should.
