Off topic - but this really made me smile - I remember when I was looking at colleges (oh, so many years ago) my mother's only requests were that I a.) didn't go to a college in our nearby city because she thought living further from home and being independent was an important part of the college experience and b.) that I not go to Princeton because everyone she had ever met that had gone to Princeton was a "PRETENTIOUS SNOB"!
