    Which do you think is most admirable: to graduate from a distinguished university, to graduate with honors, or to graduate under trying circumstances?

    I say, to graduate under trying circumstances. Granted I'm biased because that's how I graduated, haha.

    Me too. I recall several circumstances in which I was trying.

    What about graduating from a distinguished university, with honours, under trying circumstances?

    I'd pick an average school in town, crowded with funny nice people. My professors are those that don't know much about PF as if they are all around PF, I can not move in and out easily to chat with you all. If they knew how many scars I have, one day I am afraid they will shame me

    I got several honors in high school, went to an Ivy League university, and attained my Masters degree despite severe mental illness. No summa, not even magna.

    It would depend on by whom do you wish to be admired
