It’s still funny 12 years after I first read it: John T. Mongan’s letter from MIT and his imitative, mocking reply, which begins

“You’ve got the reputation.  You’ve certainly got the pomposity.  And now you’ve got a letter from John Mongan.  Maybe you’re surprised.  Most universities would be.

But you’re not most universities.  And that’s exactly why I urge you to carefully consider one of the most selective students in America, so selective that he will choose only *one* of the thousands of accredited universities in the country.”
