What Uni in the USA says...
You can always spot the English people who get into Harvard. Ask them where they’re going to university and they’ll somewhat shiftily reply, ‘America’. Ask them where in America and they’ll say, ‘Somewhere in Boston’. Pry further and you’ll eventually be rewarded by a combination of pride, humility and general embarrassment as they mumble, ‘Harvard’. This false modesty is rewarded in England, because Harvard is one of the few American universities that anyone over here has heard of.
