Yale and Duke have something in common outside of the fact that they’re both esteemed institutions that none of us even considered applying to because we knew we wouldn’t get in — they’re both WASPy as hell. Like, so WASPy that a bunch of the people that go there sound like they’re either on the Lacrosse All Name Team or have one of the 40 Preppiest Nicknames In America.
Well, now that Yale is matching up against Duke in the Round of 32 this weekend, Twitter has gone wild making fun of the preppy, privileged stigma that surrounds both schools.
