Guys, I know you all have loyalties to "your" school, but what I'm looking for is the university with the biggest "wow" factor. That is, when you say you graduated from/ are going to that you university people are really impressed.
that means: don't say your favorite school just because it is your favorite.

I'm not talking solely academics, I'm talking about that "prestige/wowness factor"

Havard slightly over Princeton, but if I had a choice to go to either school, I would go to Princeton.

I still think it is Harvard. Harvard always has the wow factor. That or Cambridge over in the UK.

I was thinking about doing English schools as well but decided to keep it American. I think Oxford's the best of the English schools though.

Their boy to girl ratio is 40:1...one of the seniors here got in ED...but surprisingly, people that go there don't get as good jobs...or not as well paying jobs.
