    Was near Stanford for a while. PM any question, and I'll try to answer them.

    OP, just ask your question

    ...Or ask the prospective admissions offices...because no school is like another (unless you're talking about the big 10, because, come on).

    Not Ivy league, but I was accepted by Cambridge in the UK, turned them down in the end though.

    The fuck? Why would you turn them down? The experience and girls and contacts and parties would be enough reason to just get in there! :D

    I went on an open day there, and most of the people I met, I probably wouldn't fit in with or get along with. My daddy doesn't have a private yacht and millions to throw at my education like theirs did. I wasn't keen on the stuck-up, better than thou attitudes that a lot of the people I met had.

    That's probably not true for the entire demographic of cambridge, but the people I met on the open day was enough to put me off.

    Well, i could maybe get into Cambridge as my high school is IGCSE certificated, so just maybe i could get there. But most of my friends are going to United States for university.

    So this thread is a circlejerk.

    I'm sure everyone's alma mater is so proud that her boys are touching themselves over how great they are.

    OP, what specifically do you need to know that cannot be answered by asking an admissions counselor directly (which gets your foot in the door and gives you preference immediately)?

    I see. That could explain. But I believe that it would just be special if you could say to be from a "branded" college. Probably the people you met at the open house would be from the cream of the crop and they would most probably have that kind of attitude that you have mentioned, but it's kind of like sand in a pit. You have the rough ones and then you have the jewels. You just have to find the good guys to hand around with and then keep the others as mere contacts.

    I myself am going to a Junior college the coming year, and I plan to work my ass off for the 2 years so that I can get in any good college with a solid alumni. You never know when you just have to get access to that magistrate. :)

    I couldn't give a monkeys about dick measuring when it comes to comparing the name of the university printed on a degree. I know a lot of people do, but seeing as I'm self employed and intend to stay that way, I find having a degree altogether is pretty irrelevant.

    Just to ask, are you currently studying in any college or university? Would you be eventually starting a company? If you do you would probably need contacts for different things. it's a very good platform to socialise and it's part of the experience. You might find it irrelevant, but I'm going to do it and push on both fronts myself because I don't want to feel empty when I do look back on my life when I reach 40. I want to be able to look back on a successful business that I built myself and that I did have the time of my life partying and shit.

    I'm not living nor close to United States, I'm 22 hours away (by plane), and I'm having a hard time asking people about universities.

    I went to uni for 2 years, had the time of my life partying and life experiences and all that, but I stopped because I wasn't learning anything on my course, and I was enjoying the student lifestyle a little too much. The best thing uni gave me was another great circle of close friends, couldn't ask for more than that. I started uni hoping for good future business contacts, but got awesome drinking partners instead.

    I already have good contacts, I'm doing better for myself now than a degree would have got me on the job market. The higher education route is not for everyone. Ideally I would like to have a degree, in case things went wrong for me and I had to seek employment, but to me that's all the more reason to stay motivated and not fuck up.
