Wow. The Ivy Leagues were clearly easier to get than the Seven Sisters. 15/15 :-) It helps that I know people who go to/went to 5/7 Sisters.

What are the seven sisters?

The Seven Sisters is a group of women's colleges in the northeastern US. Formerly none of the Ivy League schools were co-ed, so the seven sisters loosely corresponded as their "sister" schools for females only. Radcliffe has now merged with Harvard. Vassar chose to go co-ed rather than merge with Yale.

Columbia and Barnard also have a very loose exchange program; they haven't merged, but they're about as close as possible while remaining separate entities.

Does it really require so much extra effort to type "what are" instead of.....ah, never mind. SMH. Why is it so hot in here, and what am I doing in this handbag?

There are quite a few places in the Philly area w/Welsh names, courtesy of the Welsh settlers from pre-Revolutionary days.

I got five of the ivy league's just from The OC, Gossip Girl and A Cinderella Story (which was a terrible movie but they mentioned Princeton) - tried every other college I remembered hearing of and none of them came up...

there is no way that someone can get 15/15. I got 6. The people that say they get 15/15 definitely look the answers up.

Not only is it possible, but if you live in the Northeast & have attended one or more of these it's easy. Got all 15 in 29 seconds. No different than a college football fan in the Southeast being able to name all of the SEC schools.

Yes, Bryn Mawr (where I live) is Welsh. It means "big hill". There are lots of Welsh place names here on the Main Line and nearby areas of suburban Philadelphia, including Radnor, St Davids (patron saint of Wales), Bryn Athen, Wynnewood, Gladwyne, Bala Cynwyd (pronounced "kinwood"), Uwchlan (pronounced "yooklan"), Narberth, Merion, Llanerch, Berwyn, and Trediffryn (accent on the "dif"). @TheDads13: not definitely. If you've spent a lot of time in academia, you know these things.

Wait, MIT isn't part of the Ivy League?

No -- the Ivy League is essentially a sports league of some old schools in the northeast. Because those schools are academically strong, the term has tended to be applied colloquially to all academically strong schools (MIT, Stanford, etc.) but they don't compete athletically in the Ivy League.

The Ivy League is, at one level, just a sports league. MIT has never competed at that (middling) level of athletics, at least in the major sports. Also, the Ivies are all traditionally liberal arts schools with strengths in a broad variety of disciplines. MIT has always been tech/engineering centered. Great school but not an Ivy.

MIT is often ranked as the best school in the world bar none, but that doesn't mean it's part of the Ivy League. There are a ton of great schools in the USA that are not part of the Ivy League. Just because all the schools in the Ivy League are also great schools doesn't mean that if you're a great school you're in the Ivy League...

I've never seen MIT ranked as #1. Not sure which source you're using, but MIT is very specialized. Almost certainly the best engineering school along with Caltech, but when all factors are considered Oxford, Cambridge, University College London, Harvard, etc., usually score better.

Two women were in a Boston supermarket watching a student with a full shopping cart standing in the "20 Items or Less" checkout line. One woman turned to the other and said, "I wonder if that is a Harvard student who can't count or an MIT student who can't read?"

It's a good thing you did. The correct answer is Penn (short for the University of Pennsylvania, located in Philadelphia, PA), not Penn State (short for Pennsylvania State University, located in State College, PA).

I'm surprised that Pembroke (now part of Brown University but once a separate, related institution) was never a member of the Seven Sisters, since both Radcliffe and Barnard were. Anyone know why?
