Cool story bro
:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Cambrigde has/had one of the first ever printers. I'm sure they have a good publication system too, if you some day want to write a book.

Cambridge. I want to study the subject I am applying for in depth, and focus entirely on that. If I wanted a basic knowledge of an array of subjects, I'd visit the Cambridge Library, not pay a ridiculous sum to go to Harvard.

Cambridge is better for undergrad, Harvard is better for post-grad. Well at least for most subjects. (I'd argue Maths @ Cambridge post-grad is better than Harvard). Harvard has better facilities.
This.

In any case, they are extremely different universities, surely you have a preference OP?

Undergrad: Harvard, if I could get a scholarship there. Cambridge's Music course is beyond me :yes:

Postgrad: I did apply to Harvard but would probably rather go to Cambridge :yes:

MIT isn't Ivy League....
What does Ivy League have to do with it? The Ivy League is a sports event between old US universities, not a measure of their academic quality.

Yes, because when the poster said "Ivy League" he meant the sports consortium… Needless equivocation gets away from the point that most elite American institutions are excellent for undergraduate programs but receive their prowess for their graduate studies. This holds especially true for Harvard, Stanford, Cornell, and Johns Hopkins among several others.

Because that's really relevant to a discussion about which university that you'd prefer to attend :rolleyes:

Please stop. I know what you mean, and it just doesn't apply here.

Apparently, OP is asking for reasons to which Uni we think is better.

To me, good contacts to a printing press could be the decisive point.

You're not going to either.
How did you even get your status of "benevolent member"? By dissing others who you don't know at all?

Being foreign, Harvard. There's a bit more of a "woah" factor in my country for Harvard than Cambridge.

But heck, I wouldn't mind both if I could get in!

Harvard because Tom Lehrer sang about it in the Periodic Table song? (I think it's called Elements..?)

Cambridge because we've got Dagger-Joe the drug dealer and Richmond the Magdalene-Kings pimp.

(I'm sure such persons are to be found in the fine establishment of Harvard too, but not by such slick names).

Cambridge - I don't think Harvard is five and a half times as good and therefore worth paying five and a half times more to attend.
