Litquidity Target School Ranking

Litquidity (popular finmeme account) posted this UG target school ranking for IB today. Ignoring Blue Mountain State, South Harmon etc, what do you guys think of this list? x-axis is probably very anecdotal, so what do you think of y-axis in particular? I was a bit surprised by seeing Williams that low but then again I know close to nothing about recruiting and target schools. 

To be fair account owner said "prestige whoring on wallstreetoasis" played a part in determining the list, so idk how much of an echo chamber this would be. Comments on the post ( seem pretty triggered so I was just curious if anyone thinks a certain school's placement on this graph is very inaccurate.

Seriously 😂 

Ivey kids complaining in the comments that he hasnt been to the campus, as if he's been to every other school on there. It's literally just a meme. WSO kids take rankings very seriously though.

I'm sorry to hear about your GF but it wasn't an Ivey guy, it would've been someone else.

With all due respect BC kid, if a student from Vanderbilt or UMich is competing for a job with you, they get the job, period. You guys are more similar to SMU or BYU than the schools in the upper tiers
