    Too much CON crap to wade through... I said COLUMBIA doesn't award 'latin' honors to transfer students... not Yale...

    BYU is a MUCH lower ranked school than Columbia. I can't find a single article where anyone says Willard was top of his class but the one, with no citation BTW, you linked. Even his classmates in their interviews fail to mention Willard being top of his class.

    Funny how you use 'sources' we can't confirm- some relation/friend when confronted.

    Odd that...

    Are you kidding? There wasn't a single time jack ryan was leading in the polls. Im from illinois so I know. That was a bad year for repubs in illinois. there was no way they would have won that seat even if they managed to get ditka to run.

    an you made a statement without ANY PROOF whatsoever

    You are now pretending Mitt wasn't a top student because you ignore information that you don't like

    and we are waiting for you to tell us where you got your degree-if any

    an intelligent person would realize that since Romney's campaign touted his academic achievement, the press would have ripped it up if it was not true

    one of my best friends transferred from St Lawrence to Yale as a Junior. She thus had 18 (3 credit hour classes) credits at Yale rather than the minimum 36 the rest of us had. She was awarded Cum Laude based on the following

    When I attended yale, you had to earn at least 16 A grades to get CL, 24 A grades to get Magna, and 28 to get summa. To get DISTINCTION in your major you had to present either

    2/3 A grades in your major and an A on your comprehensive exams or term paper or 3/4 A grades in the major with a B.

    Phi Beta Kappa was based on class ranking

    well my friend graduated Cum Laude with distinction because she had at least 8 A grades and she got 3/4 As in her major with a B on the exam. My brother holds a degree from Columbia and noted its undergraduate school did the same thing

    So your idiocy is just that. You want to whine about Romney being first in his class because its a less competitive school than Columbia but how did Obama get in ahead of 100s of white men from Columbia who also applied to harvard law who had higher grades. I know at least 100 people from Yale who applied to Harvard and every one of us was at least a 3.6 GPA

    (right on the border of Cum Laude and Magna). and lots of people from my class (which is more competitive than columbia) got turned down despite having 3.7-3.8 GPAss with top one percent board scores.


    BTW where did you earn your degree
    first, You used anecdotal evidence as a source which doesn't count. Second you ask the person his degree. It doesn't matter nor is it verifiable since this is a MB. I thought you would learn by now not to make unverifiable claims about yourself.

    As you can see not even close. Obama's 52% to ryan's 30%. I don't how you can so blatantly lie about it. I bet even after you have been educated about this you will still refuse to accept the truth.

    Ahhh now the arrogance comes to the surface, like it did when you knocked a Brown graduate!

    This was YOU trying to spin a lack of 'honors' from Columbia University, a VERY select school, when they don't give honors to 2 year students, and it appears BYU doesn't either as they CAN give 'latin' honors but (top of his class) Willard didn't earn any either.

    You can EASILY check my facts but where do I go to check on some friend or relative you use as an example.

    Now I don't recall the Willard election campaign claiming Willard was #1 in his class. All the interviews with his fellow classmates fail to mention that as well.

    It is also an easy to check fact on the school rankings, BYU vs Columbia. It is an easy to check fact BYU has a 98% LDS enrollment and accepts 55.9% of applicants where Columbia accepts less than 7%.

    (I'm sure if you had proof otherwise you'd post it, and not more some second cousin none of us can verify....)

    you keep making claims about Columbia and latin honors without any proof.

    the rest of your crap is just crap. are you saying a guy with a 3.97 GPA was not going to get into Harvard?
