Uptight East Coast Wasps?

a: Harvard ~
b: New York City

What: "To borrow from St. Augustine, Harvard is the "city of man" in all its glory, and however much you'd like to shelter your kids from the worldliness of modern American life, a certain kind of kid (the hyper-ambitious kind, mainly) is going to want go out and experience it eventually. Or to use another analogy, Harvard is like New York City: It's not a place for everybody, and it's not necessarily the best place to form good moral character or pursue the life of the mind. "
