MIT is much larger and people interested in prestige have an East Coast bias. So most of us know a couple super smart MIT alums and no Caltech alums. We’re not parsing Math Olympiad results and levels of NASA achievement to make fine gradations, just going by reputation and direct experience.

our company 'doctorate' spreadsheet has on tab2 the list of various olympiad medalists on staff. i think there is like math and comp sci. in a high iq org, those things count for a lot.

and yeah, i prob know irl 15x mit grads vs caltech grads

Also, there is this:

https://www.parchment.com/c/college/tools/college-cross-admit-comparison.php?compare=Massachusetts+Institute+of+Technology&with=Caltech

This is a 180 site for college rankings, by the way. Someone should make a ranking purely on the basis of who wins cross admit battles, because feel like the wisdom of the masses is better than anything USNWR or anyone else has come up with.

Based on a few minutes of playing with it, it looks like the top five schools are the following:

1) H (wins every cross admit battle)

2) S (wins against every school except H)

3) M (wins against everyone except H and S)

4) Y (wins against everyone except H, S, and M)

5) P (wins against everyone except H, S, M, and Y)

Sorry to break this to you, but if the numbers are in gray, then the difference is not statistically significant. I didn't bother to check LAC's, but assuming you didn't attend a prestigious LAC, it's probably because there were like five cross admits and only two of them chose MIT.

that may be the case, but for the other poster who identified the school, you can also look up the nsf's rankings based on per capita stem phds. there is one one 'outlier' school on that list, and it's where i went.

one flaw of usnwr rankings is that they penalize schools with low graduation rates. mine pretty much either fails people out or has an extremely low 5yr grad rate (when i went, it was bordernline single digit...i got out in 4, but my gpa paid a price). but, the people that do graduate are extremely smart and a large % go on to phds.

Just Google around and see what you find about Esvelt. A significant amount has been written about him. He is currently a "Polymath Fellow" funded by some French environmental org. It's hard for me to imagine why environmentalists want to artificially manipulate the evolutionary trajectory of entire species. In any case, what does this have to do with media, such that it would be run out of a "media lab?"

Even more egregious Columbia trolling. After correcting their falsified USNWR data, they were revealed to be a TTT in steep decline.

Also, xoxo is clearly slipping because nobody has pointed out that you need to distinguish between Wharton Penn and non-Wharton Penn. Wharton Penn is arguably the most prestigious undergraduate outside of HYPS. Non-Wharton Penn is just a standard Big Ten school with a mediocre football team.

Wharton Penn isn't prestigious because you have to fucking study undergrad business and it's trivial to transfer in from TTT non-Wharton Penn. It's a practical choice for the Wall Street pipeline that's it. Your grandma doesn't give a single fuck about Wharton Penn

Well, if you are cool with your kids working construction or working their way up to manager at Hardees, more power to you. But almost all decent jobs require a college degree these days. Employers are not likely to accept a library card as a substitute.

And LJL at anyone who pays $200k for a college degree. My niece went to community college and transferred to flagship state. She got a degree with less $20k in debt (and could have easily kept it under $15k but she decided to gamble that Biden would forgive it). She got zero help from the family.

Yes, you will get no argument from me that spending $200k to get a theater degree from NYU is stupid, but it doesn't follow that all college degrees are stupid. If you take out $20k in debt to get a CS degree at the local state school and earn a job in the low six figures after graduation, most people would consider that to be a very smart investment.

I would rather that my kids be NBA superstars signing 9 figure contracts, but that isn't going to happen, either. If you have a family business to give to your kids, congrats. But for everyone else, college is the simplest path to a non-shitjob.

i appreciate the ethos of an amherst or williams but few if any people choose them over dartmouth if given the option. they are either destination schools for people who grew up in that new england prep school culture or fallbacks for ivy strivers. and the latter far outnumber the former.

I assume the former is the cream of the crop from that population though, and superior to the third tier ivy strivers. But I could be wrong.

they are almost always old-money wasps, with the occasional jew, but still not the best of them, who would still go to hyp first

but that creates a culture of prestige if not a strictly academic one, which in some ways is all prestige is. which is why amherst and williams punch above their weight in their air of prestige.

just the typical places the average non-CS high schooler would pick over CMU whether it's Columbia or Duke or whatever. Maybe Brown or Cornell. At least those have some cultural significance

For some reason Penn Chicago and Northwestern (probably Dartmouth too) are cope schools with subpar brands in my mind even though they're functionally equivalent to Columbia/Duke/etc

Quality of life aside, picking Dartmouth over Michigan only makes sense if you are a striver loser who bases your entire life on the USNWR rankings. If you look at the quality of their faculty (which seems like a better way to compare schools), Michigan is a mile ahead of Dartmouth. Attending Michigan football games and smashing sorority slores are just an added bonus.

What? No, they're just two very different schools. You don't interact with "faculty" frequently at a big state school, or if you do you're not the kind of guy who is "smashing sorority slores". Dartmouth is going to have a much more intelligent and ambitious student body versus Michigan, and interacting with them is what will make up most of your experience for four years

I think you meant to say, "Dartmouth is going to have a much wealthier student body." I went to HYPS and currently work at a flagship state school comparable to Michigan. And honestly there is almost no difference in the quality of the students. The very best students at HYPS are a little better, but 70-80% are legacies, athletes, affirmative action, or random rich kids who are not particularly impressive. And if the difference between HYPS and Michigan is small, I think it's safe to assume that the difference between Michigan and Dartmouth is basically non-existent. So given the option, I would rather have bigger name professors, football games, and massive quantities of sorority slores. But to each their own.

Dartmouth has women & sororities and I don't really see a benefit to 20k women vs. 2k women. There are plenty of options in either place and the male competition at Dartmouth includes tons of Asians, nerds and twinks. A lot of the women are athletes and outdoorsy hippie types but I don't see a problem with that. Better wife candidates than some instagram-addicted Midwestern prole blonde chick that will gain 10 pounds/year.

To be honest, Yale doesn’t really have a spot on this list and I expect it to be gone within the next 5. It’s cashing in on its legacy, but I don’t think anyone looks at a resume anymore and thinks, “wow, he/she went to Yale”
