What are the different stereotypes for all the ivy league schools... like what "type" of kid supposedly goes to each school...

I saw on one thread that Brown students are liberal and Princeton students are sporty... anything else?

i think the light bulb jokes stereotype them pretty well, if anyone feels like finding and posting them.

How many Brown students does it take to change a lightbulb? Eleven---one to change the lightbulb and ten to share the experience.

How many Dartmouth students does it take to change a lightbulb? None---Hanover doesn't have electricity.

How many Cornell students does it take to change a lightbulb? Two---One to change the lightbulb and one to crack under the pressure.

How many Penn students does it take to change a lightbulb? Only one, but he gets six credits for it.

How many Columbia students does it take to change a lightbulb? Seventy-six---one to change the lightbulb, fifty to protest the lightbulb's right to not change, and twenty-five to hold a counter-protest.

How many Yale students does it take to change a lightbulb? None---New Haven looks better in the dark.

How many Harvard students does it take to change a lightbulb? One---he holds the bulb and the world revolves around him.

How many Princeton students does it take to change a light bulb? Two--- One to mix the martinis and one to call the electrician.

I just thought of this one:

How many Ivy students does it take to change a light bulb? One - but 10,000 applied to do it.

Doesn't work for Columbia anymore. More like:

Twenty two (size of the average Core class): twenty-one to trace the theory of light bulb-changing from Nietzsche back to Aristotle, and one to call maintenance, who will have it changed in two days flat.
