Default A Question for any Yalies Here

I have heard that Yalies sometimes call Harvard 'Codfish College' or 'That Diploma Mill in Cambridge Mass.' Is this true?

I'm not a Yalie, so I couldn't say for sure. For what it's worth, though, I've heard the Massachusetts Maritime Academy called "Codfish College," but I've never heard anyone refer to Harvard by that name.

On the other hand, I'd be willing to bet good money that Elis have referred to Harvard as "That Diploma Mill in Cambridge Mass." on more than one occasion.
