    Uh. That's six.

    Mine are: Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Brown and MIT. I got an offer from Brown, coincidentally. *sigh*
    Why the sigh?

    Why the sigh?
    I chose not to accept it in the end because I have a British passport and even though they accepted me based on my IB results, I still would have had to take SATS and get all my immigration forms, moving deets sorted out etc., so there wasn't enough time.

    Yeah, big regrets there.

    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?
    but is that UPenn or wharton?

    ah i read your reply

    So far there's...

    Harvard 43
    Yale 38
    Princeton 34
    MIT 31
    Stanford 19
    Brown 11
    Columbia 8
    Berkeley 6
    Boise State 2
    Duke 2
    FSU 2
    UCLA 2
    Auburn 1
    Baylor 1
    Caltech 1
    Carnegie Mellon 1
    Cornell 1
    CSU (non-specific) 1
    Dartmouth 1
    Georgetown 1
    Johns Hopkins 1
    Miami 1
    Notre Dame 1
    Oregon 1
    Penn 1
    Texas A&M 1
    USC 1
    UT Austin 1
    Vanderbilt 1

    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.
    How many would that be without Emma Watson?

    and

    does no one watch the big bang theory on here?
