The gathering place for LU alumni to wax nostalgic about their glory days and tell current students how easy they have it. Old hags & bright-eyed and bushytailed recent grads both welcome.

#531145 We're still trying to get into Princeton and have gotten as far as the interview process, but no acceptance yet. :nono
Sadly, Princeton doesn't have a law school, or Doug would have almost certainly gotten in there.

I hate to say this because of your already oversized ego, but that's pretty cool. :D

JMU may not have a Quiz Bowl team, but they do have a top notch Honors College. But, in comparision to their 6 National Merits, LU's Honors Program has 200 National Merits: 90 National Merit Finalists (on full scholarship) and 110 National Merit Commended students (on a full tuition scholarship).

But to be fair, JMU is sharing in our Harvard news about Doug Stephens: after Doug left LU, he got his M.A. in English at JMU, and went there on a full ride.
