The tournament has begun. Which school’s fictitious alumni will come out on top? You decide.
Simply answer the following question:
Which person, if real, has the potential to offer the greatest contribution(s) to society?
Cast your vote three ways:
- Submit your answer in the comments of this post
- Respond via the Cornell or MIT Facebook pages
- Tweet using the hashtag #MITCU
Representatives from the Cornell and MIT Alumni Associations will be looking for posts that are clever, witty, absurd, and downright ridiculous. The more entertaining we find your comment to be, the more likely it will tip the scale in favor of your alma mater. Voting ends each Friday at 1:00 p.m. ET.

What’s at stake?
The winning school will take ownership of the soon-to-be-constructed Social Media Cup trophy. More importantly, the losing school will be forced to produce a video that pays homage to both the tournament winner and his or her alma mater and promote the video on their own Facebook page.
