Did you attend, are you attending, or are you committed to attend an Ivy League University or a Public Ivy University?

No, I'm not applying to any of those schools. However, I am applying to some little ivies.

Stanford. I decided when I was 12 I wanted to go to the best school with the best weather. Hence, Stanford. Good thing I got in!

Gee, I had to look it up. One of the many colleges I attended was on the list -- the University of Florida in Gainesville. However I only was there a brief time to take an accelerated organic chemistry course.

Is the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) considered a Public Ivy?

We definitely have the top Engineering school in the country, plus lots of other really good programs.

IBakes-and guess who isn't on the list???

Total of 5 colleges or universities; none fit either of those categories.

Yep. Dropped out of the 1st one (Northwestern); went to the next two just for "fun" (Federal City College (now the University of the District of Columbia) & Grand Rapids Junior College), & graduated from the final 2 (Aquinas College & WVU).

I went to the University of Puget Sound for a year. Some considered it a pseudo Ivy League school back then, but it obviously isn't one of the eight Ivy League schools.

Ivyesque? Ivy League of the West? An expensive liberal arts school with a good reputation.

I don't know what a public Ivy is, I've never heard of that before. The University of Puget Sound is a moderately expensive private university, not one of our state schools. It's one of these:

Some schools I like on that list, but other than academically, I don't think many of them, if any, probably offers an "Ivy League" experience overall.

My son attends the "U" and my daughter is at IU Bloomington. I attended a small school for undergrad (UIndy, formerly Indiana Central University).

11/01/14 5:05 pm

The U as in Miami or...?

No! I chose the smaller school with the great science program so that I don't rack up a bunch of students loans just on my undergrad years. But, congrats if you are; that's quite the accomplishment.

11/01/14 6:43 pm

Yeah, I actually just found out it was a Public Ivy... I'm kind of intimidated now

Don't be too intimidated. I was so scared before starting college, but it's really been great so far!

Yes. PSU - University Park.

11/01/14 4:39 pm

Congrats man! What major?

Thanks! I just found out last week, and I can't wait. I'm going for accounting.

Your going to University of Iowa, right?

11/01/14 5:06 pm

Yeah, though next year. Public ivies ftw?

11/01/14 5:09 pm

Alright cool.

And yes, Public Ivies FTW! They have great academics, huge campuses (so there's always something interesting going on), and they're way cheaper than the actual Ivies. So they're really the best of both worlds.

Hunh. I've never heard the term "public ivy" before. In any case my university was neither lol.

11/01/14 5:18 pm

What university did you go to if I may ask?

A smallish Christian college in Indiana. I try not to get too specific with details around here.

Fully understood
