** Tony Stark and Rhodey are both seen wearing the "Brass Rat" the class ring given to MIT grads; which would mean both of them attended. It's mentioned that Tony Stark graduated MIT ''Summa Cum Laude'' at the age of 14. Though MIT doesn't give class rankings or cum laude awards.

* Stanford University is another elite, prestigious school located in Palo Alto, California. Common in works set on the West Coast. UC Berkeley and UC Los Angeles (UCLA) are also highly desired schools and as California public universities the tuition is a fraction of the price of private schools for in-state students. On the West Coast, these are the schools that ambitious kids [[EducationMama (and their parents)]] want to get into, along with Caltech for the science-and-engineering-minded.

* On ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'', a major plotline in the show's fifth season is that Topanga is accepted to Yale, which would inevitably separate her from her OneTrueLove Cory, who was only accepted to the fictional Pennbrook in their native Philadephia. They discuss the possibility of a LongDistanceRelationship but Topanga decides not to go to Yale after all and instead proposes marriage to Cory, with the two of them attending Pennbrook together starting in the sixth season.
** We later learn that Rachel made the ''exact same decision'' Topanga did - turning down Yale to attend Pennbrook with her boyfriend - which backfired on her when he dumped her and dropped out to move to Corpus Christi, Texas. (Both of them turn out okay, though - Topanga moves to New York City to accept an internship with a prestigious law firm and Rachel joins the Peace Corps after she graduates.)
