As a Northwestern alumnus, I can attest that few people (at least on the East Coast) know where it is. 66% seems a little high, frankly...

If you were actually in the Northwest it might be different! At least it's not as bad of a misnomer as Western Ontario.

I think because of more teams joining the Big 10, more people know where Northwestern is located today.

Missed one - had a brain cramp and didn't make the connection between Carnegie and the western Pennsylvania steel industry! :-(

I'm just glad you didn't have one of those confusing ones, like Pittsburg State University (Kansas) or Washington University (St. Louis, Missouri).

How do these have a 64-87% guess rate? I had no idea about most of these, I knew 4 of these and guessed 2 more right. I guess most of the quiz takers are Americans?

What, the Oberlin Otters? Columbia Cockatiels? (No offense to Oberlin or Columbia. Maybe they have sports teams. I wouldn't know.) Really easy quiz, though.

Or, ya know, just Americans. Higher learning is big business as are its sports. You don't need to be college edjumencated to know where most of these schools are.

This is the first one of these multiple choice quizzes I've gotten more than 50% on, and that's mostly just because I just finished the grad school application cycle and finally settled on one that I'm pleased to say is on this list.
