Were these Law or Geography students though?
Do you think it would be fair if I walked up to an English Literature student and asked them to recite any sorting algorithm of their choice.
To answer the first part, I'd have to refer back to the point I tired to make about it being a 'Prestige School'
The Second part, probably not, but in reference to keeping the thread on topic, if you're fortunate enough to get into 'insert exclusive school name here' be it on merit via a scholarship, or a rich daddy the primary function of said school is to educate, now the capital of Canada may not be a lifechanging piece of information, but it is factually accurate.
And I hate with a passion a term a that has been used a lot over the internet. which is 'War, god's way to teach Americans Geography'
I happen to have a lot of online friends, from every reach of the internet <sorry appropriate term failed me> and having spoken to many who were from the usa, I have to say, they are well spoken and educated, (yes there is the complete opposite online too, but that is the world over, not just America, but that's the power of the internet, it gave the stupid a voice)
I could go on, but I run the risk of getting even further off topic than I had originally intended.
