pricon wrote:I mean technically you can refer to anything on the Ivy League college campus as "Ivy League" right? Sure, they have an Ivy League football stadium and an Ivy League side walk. But the cultural prestige associated with the athletic conference is at the collegiate level. The sources you quoted don't refute that.
If the law school disappeared, the Ivy League wouldn't lose its prestige. It would still have the campus and the football stadium. If you got rid of the campus and football stadium and had only a law school, quite different, no? Then you see the source. So I'm not taking about a technicality or prescriptive meaning. I'm talking about a descriptive meaning of the term as it's understood.
Look, you and I both want to be associated with Ivy League. But we didn't get into one where it counts. But you got into a law school at one. That's great. It's different though.
WELL ACTUALLY-- the definition of Ivy League is "a group of long-established colleges and universities in the eastern US having high academic and social prestige. It includes Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Cornell, Brown, and the University of Pennsylvania." Seeing as Cornell is a university and a university is comprised of all the colleges at any given school, Cornell Law is an Ivy League law school.
Furthermore, I am tired of everyone on this damn site looking for ways to attack or belittle another user. Just ask yourself before you comment: Is what I'm about to say kind? And if not, is it necessary?
