Since then, it is the aspiration of many high school students (and their parents) to get an "Ivy League Education"
People like to associate Ivy League with any extremely prestigious American university, but that is incorrect. Some schools, like Stanford, MIT, and Duke are academically on-par with schools in the Ivy League, but they are not Ivy League schools.
Some public schools brag that they are public ivy schools, referencing a book written years ago. It probably just means they have a misguided superiority complex.
An athletically superior conference a century ago that has faded into obscurity as state schools nation-wide have bolstered their athletic programs.
Similar to athletics, other schools are slowly catching up academically.
At present, the term "Ivy League" has a negative connotation, and insinuates old money snobbishness or antisocial behavior.
Ted: "Man, I didn't get into Harvard. No Ivy League for me..."
Bill: "Who cares. Go to BU across the river, experience their diversity, and get a better education."
Will: "Want to go to the Princeton-Yale football game? Classic Ivy League matchup..."
Tommy: "Are you kidding? If I wanted to be bored to death by a three-to-nothing game I'd watch soccer on TV."
Francis: "I had a 4.0 GPA, was the student body president of my class, and hoped to go Ivy League, but I still didn't get into Columbia..."
Sean: "Obviously you didn't. Your last name isn't Kennedy."
The Unabomber earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard in 1962.
Jack: "Look at that sociopath over there talking to himself about philosophical dilemmas."
Jill: "I guess there's a reason why Cornell has the highest suicide rate in the nation..."
Schools for snobby rich cumchuggers
