CMU one of the new Ivies

According to MSNBC / Newsweek / Kaplan College Guide, Carnegie Mellon University is one of the "New Elite 'Ivies'".


A major national research university, Carnegie Mellon serves 5,500 undergrads and 3,000 grad students in seven colleges reflecting CMU's academic diversity: Carnegie Institute of Technology (engineering), the College of Fine Arts, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Mellon College of Science, the Tepper School of Business, the School of Computer Science and the Heinz School of Public Policy and Management.


I have to admit that I don't quite understand this obsession with Ivy League schools. Perhaps it's the journalists writing these kinds of stories. At any rate, it's good that CMU is getting more recognition. Hopefully, we'll be able to avoid more of Randy Pausch's experiences when he was trying to give away Carnegie Mellon branded CD's of Alice, where one person asked "Why is a bank giving away free software?"
