  2. hahaha

    Spring 2008 Sociology G9080
    CONTEXTUALIZATION OF CONTEXT

    How meta.

  3. This is

    this bullshit is why I transferred to Harvard, thank you very much.

    • huh  

      why are you still commenting? go to your own blahgs.

    • But  

      can't tear away from Bwog?

      • Yes

        I appreciate the wonderful writing and it brings me news of my good friends who still attend. Frankly I am hurt that you would question why I would read your blog.

        • hahaha

          hahahaha. you're a joke of a person.

          oh THAT's why you transferred to harvard.

          Harvard? Harvard.

        • Douche  

          Were you waiting all year for this blog post, so you could post comment #3 in there? Do you sip tea, smoke a pipe and read the Herald Tribune sitting on a rocking chair by the fireplace every evening too?

          Thing theory lol. Making & Breaking codes sounds cool!

          • I'm sad now

            You don't know me personally, yet you insult me because I chose to attend a school that is higher-ranked and has a better record of placement in top Law Schools.

            What's wrong with the Herald Tribune? Where else would you presume to get a truly international perspective? FYI: I subscribe to the South China Daily Morning Herald for my Asia news. I recommend it.

          • I love it

            So you say you're sad that we're insulting you for having made a comment as obnoxious as "this shit is why I transferred to Harvard" and yet in telling us that you're sad, you also have to brag that you transferred to a school that is "higher ranked" and you expect us to repent in our insults?

            I didn't go to Harvard because I heard from everyone who went there that it was a place where you're ignored as an undergrad even more than at most Ivy League schools. Fact remains that Columbia College is one of the smallest in the Ivy League and that I felt I've gotten a lot of attention here that I wouldn't have gotten elsewhere. And you know what? There's still plenty of time for me to go to Harvard for grad school, when they may actually acknowledge my existence.

            So in summation: Harvard kid, fuck off.

          • Attention

            Attention from the voices in your head, perhaps!

    • "Oh hey...  

      ...did I mention I go to Harvard? Look at me, I go to Harvard! Hey everyone who doesn't go to Harvard, your school sucks because it's not Harvard. HARVARD"

  4. how could you miss

    Spring 2008 English W3345
    STDS IN THE 18TH CENTURY NOVEL

  5. Yup...  

    Columbia sure sucks because its lack of harvardness.

  6. I guess  

    Lubrication Theory isn't being offered this semester?

  7. CJS

    harvard is so not worth it. it's boring here. everyone is always talking about the latest crazy shit going down at columbia...it makes one wistful.

    p.s. I think this feature can increasingly be boiled down to barnard first year seminars and anthro classes. I see b&w took it upon itself to investigate the former...now it's time to take a page from bernard cohn and be an anthropologist among the anthropologists, hmm? I want to know if they even have a review process for these classes or if faculty come up with them on a whim during conferences in, oh, amsterdam maybe...or jamaica.

  8. boo!!!

    you're dumb harvard! you're dumb! boo!! you suck! eat shit! you = dumb!

  9. it's not  

    because you go to a school that is higher-ranked, it's because you were such a douche. "this bullshit is why I transferred to Harvard, thank you very much." That was really unecessary.

    Besides, this is bwog. And here is where Columbia students unleash their wrath, kind of like you rubbing in the fact that you go to....where? Right, Harvard.

    • But

      You really don't have to be so rude about it. I mean, I do own a pipe, it started as a bit of irony and then now I enjoy it. Perfect way to end a hard day of intellectual effort. One I found difficult to find at Columbia. Sorry. I will do better in life than you will, and for that I understand your resentment. I was one of only six transfers admitted to Harvard when I applied. For this I will always be proud and my accomplishments will only soar from that moment.

      You may rot at number '11,' while FAIR HARVARD will always be number 1.

  10. lay off  

    this guy. If he had said "This shit is why I transferred to UIllinois," you wouldn't have said a goddamn thing. Or, more likely, you would have given him shit about how much lower ranked UIllinois is than Columbia. This is because everyone here is more interested in prestige and school rankings, rather than actually learning anything.

    -mb

  11. No,  

    if he had said "that's why I transferred out of this school", that would have been okay. But he chose to name-drop.

    And, in response to the douche, going to Harvard does not guarantee that you will be more successful than a Columbia student, and I can't believe you are pompous enough to believe that. Are you going to be more successful than Warren Buffet, FDR, and John Kluge? You sure? The truth is, a lot of Columbians could transfer into Harvard; you were competing against a very limited pool of applicants in transferring between Ivies. So get down from your high-horse.

  12. #22  

    was in response to #17 & 18.

  13. whoa  

    what has post-modernism done to us? Anthro has gone from white man's burden to foucaultmindfuck.

  14. trauma

    Imagine takng a course called "Trauma." Hey, I've got a Trauma midterm coming up... Trauma is killing me... Saturday is gonna be Trauma in Butler...
