* In '' Series/YesMinister'', Sir Humphrey and Bernard both studied Classics at Cambridge. Meanwhile, Jim Hacker is a graduate of the London School of Economics, which Sir Humphrey in particular likes to needle him about. The LSE is a fine school, and cutting-edge in many ways, but to the arch-conservatives of the Civil Service it will always be a "red-brick" with no pedigree. The contrast becomes extra stark when Hacker identifies the African dictator "Selim Mohammad" as his old classmate Charles Mwali.

** Also, it's worth mentioning that unlike most fictional characters, Carlton's aspirations aren't unrealistic. Between him being a legacy child (it's easier for children of alumni to get in, and Phil is a Princeton grad), his family being wealthy and well-connected, both in their community and in academia (Phil is a high-powered attorney and, later, judge, Vivian is a professor), and Carlton being shown to obsessively maintain a 4.0 GPA, his prospects for admittance are very good.
