#1 Hampshire College. Where the clocks stopped in about 1969...

#2 This looks like the action of a fifth-rater trying to claw their way up the rankings the easy way, rather than improving academically. But perhaps Hampshire College is one of those quiet jewels of academia known only within the region. Still, I don't remember them courting trailing daughter #1, for all she was a National Merit scholar; perhaps they don't aspire that high.

#3 When I was up there in the giant reeducation camp (UMASS, Amherst, Mt. Holyoke, Smith, and Hampshire) known as the Pioneer Valley before I escaped in the 70's, Hampshire College was known as the home of the real weirdo's. One of those free form, no grades, make your own major, have your graduation class pose in the nude for their class picture (no kidding) colleges which seemed to cater to rich, liberal NYC kids. It's 50 g's a year to go there, so I doubt that's changed much...

#4 Sounds like St. Johns in Annapolis.

#5 Trolling, NS? ;-)

Saint John's is more of a mixed bag - or used to be. Now, I'm not quite sure. But in the early 70s SJC had people like Leo Strauss and Herman Kahn give talks or visit with students. I'm pretty sure Hampshire wasn't as welcoming ....

#7 Sounds like Antioch College in Ohio. Before it closed.

#8 The free hand of market forces killed Antioch. Bankrupt ideas - bankrupt college.
