39 Supposed Effects Of An Ivy League Education (Some of Which, At Least, Are True)

23. Despite your best efforts, you still think throwing on a blazer can solve all your problems.

Buzzfeed.

I wouldn’t put it quite that way, but there is no doubt that nothing is more useful men’s-wardrobe-wise than one’s J. Press or Brooks Brothers three-button blue blazer. On the other hand, I’ve never actually seen anyone wear a blue blazer with a pocket patch crest.

I basically agree with 1 (“Where did you go to school?” “New Haven”), 2, 6, 8, 10 (definitely true), 12 (I’d think that if I had heard of him.), 14, 15, 16 (really!), 17, 20, 25, 27, 33, and 39. But, personally, I do not experience guilt over privilege at all.

Funktacular

Too many jokes about studying. Only STEM majors and morons have to study while attending an Ivy.

As my old English teacher in boarding school (a Yalie from a family of Yalies since the late Pleistocene) always used to bellow to seniors: “Remember, the hardest thing in the world is to get into an Ivy, and the second-hardest thing is to fail out.”
