    Warwick, like other universities in the top layer of the university league table cake, is a prestigious university. At, times though, it is interesting to compare a university to what would be the U.S. equivalent. What do you think it would be for Warwick? Any ideas?

    This could be intriguing or perhaps controversial.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm I would say NYU, once you remove the rep inflation that comes along with it being in NYC.

    Well, I would think that Warwick would be a university of an Ivy League type standing. "The Independent" even describes the university as a member of the unofficial Ivy Leauge - just to prove my point.

    The Russell Group can't really be compared to the Ivy League, one's a sports-based grouping of old East-coast universities and the other's a pressure group of research-focused UK universities. I don't really see why Warwick needs to have an American equivalent but if it does have one it's probably somewhere like Chicago. It's impossible to compare UK/US universities in many ways because the USA's so huge with so many top-class places, not just the Ivy League.

    *shudders* I find that independent article rather disturbing. 'Very new labour' EWWWWW!I would compare it to Columbia though. Good uni but being new not stuck in tradition like (Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Oxford, Cambridge) and not a big 'boys club'. Columbia do 'beat-studies' and so are cutting edge as our Warwick and their 'Perdita project'. But a bloody brill uni. That's what I'm thinking.Probably wrong lol.

    EDIT: Wait probs not like Columbia cos Warwick has very low private school sector intake. I think. That might not be right dont quote me but thats what i heard.

    I myself have an offer from Warwick and am at a private school
    I'd say either Brown, Duke, Notre Dame or Berkely (although to be fair I am probably wrong).

    Perhaps Brown; definitely not Duke or Berkely.

    I dont fully understand why comparing Warwick to MIT is soooo outrageous? It's the 6th best uni in the U.K (4th in my book- imperial and lse so shouldnt count cos they dont even DO that many subjects), all its departments r great, and considering it's only 40 years old will probs actually better then MIT. Had MIT done so much when only established for 40 years?I THINK NOT!*feels student patriotism rushing to head*

    I'm saying that Warwick, although good, is not on par with MIT, which BTW is a specialist university.

    I just thought I'd add something to the MIT vs Warwick debate:

    MIT rules!!!


    I'd pick MIT over Warwick anyday (I love Warwick, but it just isnt as good as MIT). I love MIT open couseware, I use it frequently in my studies, they always have better lecture notes than what I get from here, and OMG the videos are great, makes me wish I was there though.
