    Stereotypes are bad. :no:

    Besides, even if I posted what I knew, I'd get my head ripped off.

    From what ive heard from mates in the US, is that compared to the UK, the students are more promiscuous.

    Just for the record, a school is what you make of it; don't believe the stereotypes.

    I posted that same link earlier, but here is my own assessment (also previously posted):

    Brown - pot-smoking hippies
    Cornell - aggies and general riff-raff
    Columbia - self-satisfied hipsters
    Dartmouth - drunken frat boys
    Harvard - pretentious douchebags
    Princeton - white country club enthusiasts
    Penn - dumb jocks and Wall Street enthusiasts
    Yale - gay theatre kids

    I have firsthand accounts of all of these things, and they are true to varying degrees.

    Of course, there's also the old lightbulb jokes.

    1. How many Brown students does it take to change a lightbulb?
    Eleven -- one to change the lightbulb and ten to share the experience.

    2. How many Columbia students does it take to change a lightbulb?
    Seventy-six -- one to change the lightbulb, fifty to protest
    the lightbulb's right to not change, and twenty-five to hold
    a counter-protest.

    3. How many Cornell students does it take to change a lightbulb?
    Two -- One to change the lightbulb and one to crack under the pressure.

    4. How many Dartmouth students does it take to change a lightbulb?
    None -- Hanover doesn't have electricity.

    5. How many Harvard students does it take to change a lightbulb?
    One -- he holds the bulb and the world revolves around him.

    6. How many Penn students does it take to change a lightbulb?
    Only one, but he gets six credits for it.

    7. How many Princeton students does it take to change a lightbulb?
    Two -- one to mix the martinis and one to call the electrician.

    8. How many Yale students does it take to change a lightbulb?
    None -- New Haven looks better in the dark.
