You sound like a really nerd.
Harvard and Stanford don't like it.
MIT and Caltech try not to be nerd, either.
Do you have money, then donate.

jesus, you guys are so mean. Plus, Caltech is an ONLY nerd school.

It would be a real shame if any university would be so prejudiced. Without "nerds", there would be no Internet, no computers, no cars, no electricity, no running water, etc. There wouldn't even be universities because there would be no buildings.

Well-lopsided isn't bad necessarily, but for schools like Harvard/Stanford, your writing/communication skills must still be top-notch.

I applied to both Harvard and Stanford and got rejected by both; despite an 800 on the SAT II Writing.
I guess its just the trends. Admitting "nerds" is highly unfashionable today.

so should everyone where abercrombie to a Caltech interview? if caltech doesnt like nerds, who does? seriously i looked at the posters theyve sent out to high school students over the past two years, and honestly, i love math and science and have the posters on my wall, but even i would have given these kids a beating, i mean crap, talk about nerd pride.

"so should everyone where abercrombie to a Caltech interview?"
Caltech doesn't provide interviews at all.
"if caltech doesnt like nerds, who does?"
Maybe nobody likes nerds.
"but even i would have given these kids a beating"
Who are you talking about? Please clarify

Nerd is "socially inept.", according to heritage dcitionary...
So how anyone can like nerds?

whats the difference between "nerd" and "geek"?
|By Jszab (Jszab) on Friday, April 30, 2004 - 12:29 pm: Edit|
I think that geek is more connected with computer science [Steve Jobs ??] and nerd with life physical sciences, and engineering.
Have You tried dictionary in internet?

I think you can be a geek in a specific topic (e.g. comp sci) or a nerd in general.
