Skip to comments.Great moments in collegiate marketing: Drake University’s ‘D+’ campaign
Posted on 09/04/2010 11:05:55 AM PDT by FatherofFive
If you were going to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a higher education, would you want the end result to be known as a "D+" education?

Drake is for rich Chicago kids who can’t get into a good school.
Isn’t that what Columbia College is for?
Or is that for the even dumber kids who will get their diploma mill degree and then pass themselves off as people with “a degree from Columbia” until you call them out on it?
I just wish someone would force Columbia College Chicago to change its name.
Like Keith Olbermann and his “Cornell” degree?
Hey what is this about Olbermann lying about a Cornell degree? I went to Cornell (the real one, did he go to the one in Iowa?) so I’m offended on the Big Red’s behalf...although most folks at Cornell would probably want to give him an honorary degree anyway...
I still expect to hear that Obama was a Columbia night student, where the admissions requirements are much lower but where you still end up with a Columbia degree...
Ann Coulter, ‘84, mocks Keith Olbermann,’79, for graduating from CALS
...I would venture to say that the students at Goodling’s law school at Regent University are far more impressive than those at the Cornell agriculture school — the land-grant, non-Ivy League school Keith attended.
I wouldn’t mention it, except that Olbermann savages anyone who didn’t go to an impressive college. As it happens, he didn’t go to an impressive college, either.
If you’ve ever watched any three nights of his show, you know that Olbermann went to Cornell. But he always forgets to mention that he went to the school that offers classes in milking and bovine management.
Indeed, Keith is constantly lying about his nonexistent “Ivy League” education, boasting to Playboy magazine, for example: “My Ivy League education taught me how to cut corners, skim books and take an idea and write 15 pages on it, and also how to work all day at the Cornell radio station and never actually go to class.”
Except Keith didn’t go to the Ivy League Cornell; he went to the Old MacDonald Cornell.
The real Cornell, the School of Arts and Sciences (average SAT: 1,325; acceptance rate: 1 in 6 applicants), is the only Ivy League school at Cornell and the only one that grants a Bachelor of Arts degree.
Keith went to an affiliated state college at Cornell, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (average SAT: about that of pulling guards at the University of South Carolina; acceptance rate: 1 of every 1.01 applicants).
Olbermann’s incessant lying about having an “Ivy League education” when he went to the non-Ivy League ag school at Cornell would be like a graduate of the Yale locksmithing school boasting about being a “Yale man”...
