Are any schools more WASPy than Wharton, Yale, Oxford or Cambridge?

I'm thinking about where to send my kid so he can find some wasp broads to have kids with, I heard from golfing buddies while in nantucket that wasp heaven used to be yale, wharton, oxford and cambridge (with the occasional lse, dartmouth and even manchester), although in the past decade or so they all moved to oxbridge/lse because of affirmative action in the us (meaning too many ethnics near their kids). 
 

anyhow, are there any schools that have a higher concentration of those hot blonde wasp females that my son can bring home for me to ogle at?

SMU and USC. Academic prestige and waspiness

no longer go hand in hand. Money and waspiness go hand in hand

Do you mean USC students don't have money or are you talking about the academic prestige? Our rivals call us University of Spoiled Children, so I would have assumed people paying the full tuition (no scholarship) come from pretty rich families. Would like to hear why you think otherwise.

It's literally such a joke to get into USC now. They offer everyone from a wealthy zip code the "Trojan transfer plan" which guarantees admission after 1 semester at CC.

If it is a joke now, when was it now? It has only become more difficult.

USC seems to make freshman admission harder to keep the acceptance rate low, but takes CC students with no internships and ok grades (students on reddit compare their profiles). With that being said, it's helpful that they do transfer because they usually help lower the curve, therefore, helping students who got in as freshman to maintain high grades.

Chicago and NW?

Unless you count the occasional Midwestern farmers son (solely on the basis of ethnicity) who went to Chicago, then no. They never fit this profile.

UVA

Most students may be from Virginia, but they are from the foreigner/ethnic parts of NoVa who often go to those math magnet schools where every other students threatens to kill him or herself. Not your fathers UVA!

It won't work out if you have to ask. No more than one in twenty, if that, of the students attending those schools come from the background mentioned. They will not be a significant component at any top 25 university. Some will have more than others, of course. They never went to Oxbridge/LSE in large numbers, they went to Edinburgh and St Andrew's in Scotland. Prots belonging to a Nantucket country club or Maine yacht club don't care about the ivies or academic prestige, they really are content to send their kid to a bottom barrel nescac or worse.

The wealthiest families I know (Networth ranges from 40 million - 5 billion) send their kids to the most random schools. Boulder, St. Lawrence, Colgate (By far the most popular), Conn College, WashU, Williams, Georgetown, SMU, Miami Ohio
 

Of course if the family has a building at Yale they all go to Yale (Strongest ivy ties to Brown, Yale, Harvard, and Dartmouth)

They all know they are set for life so the parents are fine with whatever

Williams/Amherst are waspy af. They are pretty much private wasp high schools.

This isn't true. A high percentage are affirmative action, international, recruited athletes (go on the team pages and look at the high schools), Asian cello players, and then ethnics from suburbs. Of 500 entering students, less than 50 are waspy under any standard more restrictive than "Caucasian and dresses okay", and this looser one is not even satisfied.

I think peak WSO would be for a thread where somebody ranks the Princeton eating clubs... can't wait for those takes. 

Co-ed undergrad social clubs don't deserve rankings. Yale and Harvard are a much better time in part because of this, let alone other ivies.

Northeast liberal arts schools with 15-30% acceptance rates. Atleast in my experience.

Washington and Lee is pretty old school. All out of staters though. Nobody from va is dumb enough to send their kid there when uva is an hour away.

True, plenty of people who golf in Nantucket do send their yankee children to private southern schools. Their southern equivalents often go to the state school and join KA or whatever other fraternity is prominent in the local business network.

This is patently false. I go to Yale and know many people at Harvard. To say that one is "chock full", of immigrants, FGLI, etc, and that the other isn't, is ridiculous. They both choose from the same applicant pool and are essentially the same in that respect. Academically they are more similar than different. To say that Harvard is more rigorous is simply not true. The vast majority of people at both do liberal arts degrees, not STEM, so your point about Harvard vs. Yale STEM is out of touch with reality. They both are extremely difficult for the average person (but both also have considerable grade inflation). But that's another discussion. Harvard absolutely has the reputation of being WASPier, though. It's something people joke about.
