Where you say you went to college if you attended Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Dartmouth, Columbia, Cornell, Brown, Penn, MIT, or Georgetown but don't want to sound like a pompous douchebag. Some people like to say they went "Back East" for college to imply that they attended a top school when they really went to a state school nobody's heard of.
John: I saw quite a few broadway shows when I was in college Back East.
Jane: Ah, so did I! I went to Columbia, did you as well?
John: Well... City College of New York... But close enough!
