Don't feel bad if you've only heard of Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, since those are referenced in fiction [[SmallReferencePools far more]] than the others. Columbia gets fewer mentions since NYU is the "go-to" institution to name-drop if you want your characters in The BigApplesauce[[note]]somewhat ironically, NYU is itself known to be a very selective university[[/note]]. The others are surrounded by inner city, except Dartmouth, which is in the middle of nowhere, the nearest cities offering much off-campus nightlife [[note]]Burlington, VT and Concord, NH[[/note]] being two hours' drive in opposite directions. Cornell's in the slightly more urban Ithaca, New York (three times the population of Hanover), and quite a bit closer to significant cities, but isn't really as inner-city as the rest. As for Penn, for some reason The Wharton School (Penn's business college) is referenced far more than the rest of the university.
