Yes, Amherst College can afford to be overly snobby, err, I mean selective.In addition to their $1.3 billion endowment they are also the largest landowner in the town of Amherst--almost all of it tax exempt.Yet they rely on Amherst's expensive to maintain fire and ambulance service (police on occasion) but refuse to contribute annually a Payment In Lieu Of Taxes.No wonder the rich keep getting richer.
SpartanDad says ... I think 'club' is a better word than 'college,' considering how much fun the lucky ones who get in actually have at the politically-correct, multi-culti, America-hating, anti-Christian campus. But I don't think it is much different at any of these snooty 'clubs,' whether it be small Ivy, big Ivy, or any other ivy --- they are ALL poison to the communities they are in and the students they attract.
