Fifteen percent of Harvard students come from families that made about $630,000 or more a year. Only two Ivy institutions — Columbia and Cornell Universities — have a smaller share of students from such families, at 13 percent and 10 percent, respectively. At the top of the list is Dartmouth College, with 21 percent. The chart below shows the proportion of students enrolled at each Ivy League institution who are from the top 1 percent.

Hasan Minhaj's new show Patriot Act on Netflix did an episode on this.  Great watch.

Imagine yourself being deposed, and trying to answer how you arrived at these arbitrary Personal Ratings.

Just watched this last night. It brought pretty good perspective as to how ridiculous this lawsuit is.

Wait a minute... have you ever seen those Korean dance studio YouTube videos? And when it comes to BBoy, they are way up there in skill and synchronicity.
