Consensus: Princeton sucks

Amalia Rinehart / Spec

In Monday’s Opulent, we asked readers what they thought of Columbia’s 32% increase in undergraduate applications. After three days of scouring the student body, we have collected the results, and 67.65% of voters responded, “Suck it, Princeton.” We hope Cornel West will not hear the news. Statistics after the jump.

Suck it, Princeton — 67.65% of voters

“These numbers are meaningless.” — 15.69% of voters

My kid’s chances of getting in are plummeting! — 12.75% of voters

No!! My chances of getting in are plummeting! — 3.92% of voters

    It is now more difficult to get into Columbia than Princeton, and that is important. Among the ivies, only Harvard is more difficult to get into than Columbia.

    couldn’t you have gotten that photo of Cornel West from a slightly less racist source?

    Coming from a deferred applicant from Columbia’s early decision pool, I found this post rather comical.
