Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseUniversityAdmissions: Compounding the show's depictions of Yale's admissions process in the second season's "New Haven Can Wait" is its completely inaccurate depiction of Skull and Bones. In real life the organization, like Yale's other secret societies, is exclusively composed of seniors, and rather than mugging and abducting prospective members when they visit campus as high school seniors they go to prospective members late in their junior year, wearing skull-faced makeup and black robes, to "tap" them with "Accept or reject?", which must be answered on the sot.

** Lampshaded by Blair in "New Haven Can Wait".
-->''I'm tired of standing next to you looking like Darth Vader while you look like Super Barbie.''
** Taken UpToEleven when applied to Serena and Georgina during season one. While Blair's insecurity makes her manipulative nature understandable, G is just pure evil, wanting to have Serena all to herself and not caring how much she has to hurt Serena to do it.
