When I checked out the ranking of universities by endowment, I was totally blown away by UT! I had no idea...

I don't know where they rank; I don't really care. I do know that I had a very satisfying academic experience at those institutions.
And let's face it, your posting history would suggest that you do go a bit over the top on the subjects of Greenville, SC and Clemson. I think it explains why you're so touchy over my simple comment. But it is what it is.
you never explain how my opinions are 'over the top'. you only make the assertion. you think your opinion is the 'right' opinion and I need permission from you to have an opinion you don't agree with. how can an opinion about a city or college be 'over the top'. that makes no sense.

i don't care where you went to school. i have no interest in you. my point was not about where you went to school. if I mention Clemson, you get uptight about it, but then you accuse of me being uptight. it is weird. My point is, if you got on here and talked up Rollins, i've not going to have a problem with it or even discuss it, or call you uptight for an opinion. i don't make assertions about things if I have no independent knowledge of them.

you make snarky contentious comments about my posts all the time, and when I respond you say I'm defensive. i'm not touchy if you insult me as uptight for expressing an opinion about something.

you want to bicker. i need to stop responding to you because you looking for attention. how many times do you want to have this exact same kind of conversation. i'm going to add you to my ignore list. i've asked you to add me to your ignore lists several times now.

talk about the universities that you think are the best. the topic is not me.

Yes, it IS a great school. And being in Williamsburg with its history, beauty, and close to the coast, it gets even more points in my book

It should be noted that the endowment numbers are for the entire UT system, not the Austin campus alone. UT-Austin had a $3.27B endowment last year. Still, nothing to sneeze at at all.

Best Colleges & Universities - Ranked by Job Recruiters - WSJ

you may not be able to look at the above link because they require subscription.

Here is an article about it from a newspaper, focused specifically on engineering programs. http://archive.independentmail.com/n...349677811.html

The analysis was of most-respected engineering programs among the country's public and private universities, and Clemson came in at No. 17. Other conference schools were Georgia Tech (No. 1), Maryland (No. 3), Virginia Tech (No. 5) and North Carolina State (No. 15).

The analysis took the opinions of nearly 500 recruiters who last year hired more than 43,000 new college graduates in a variety of fields. They were asked to identify schools whose graduates were the best trained and educated and able to succeed on the job.

Of the 25 engineering schools that appeared in the Journal ranking, 19 were public and only one of the six private institutions Cornell University was from the Ivy League. (the engineering side of Cornell is actually a public).

Just saw on my Twitter that Princeton Review ranked Clemson #3 nationally in the 'Students Love These Colleges' category and #5 in Career Services

Duly noted, but still REALLY impressive!
Emory is pretty impressive on this level as well...thank you, Coca-Cola!

Oh yes, very impressive. The oil and gas industry pays dividends all around in Texas.

Don't get me wrong. Ultimately I find your devotion rather endearing, if not a tad unbalanced. Namaste.

Most Expensive Colleges and Universities

I think most students / parents more interested in the cost of attendance than the endowment of the university.

Rank College Total Cost
1. Harvey Mudd College $67,255
2. Columbia University $66,383
3. New York University $65,860
4. Sarah Lawrence College $65,630
5. University of Chicago $64,965
6. Bard College at Simon's Rock $64,519
7. University of Southern California $64,482
8. Claremont McKenna College $64,325
9. Oberlin College $64,266
10. Scripps College $64,260
11. Bard College $64,254
12. Haverford College $64,216
13. Duke University $64,188
14. Dartmouth College $64,134
15. Northwestern University $63,983
16. Trinity College $63,970
17. Pitzer College $63,880
18. Southern Methodist University $63,840
19. Amherst College $63,772
20. Johns Hopkins University $63,750


i think hard to justify going to Duke for an undergrad degree given that crazy high tuition.

Never mind Duke. I'm fascinated by Harvey Mudd College. Whoa. Right up there with the Masons and the Illumitati.
