 Talk:Virginia Military Institute - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I am familiar with the assertion by a number of military school students that their ring is the heaviest, and that it is a competition each year to see who has it, and who doesn't, but I have never seen any valid citations.
Please see the Virginia Military Institute case of the Mediation Cabal if you are involved in the dispute involving the citation of the size of the Virginia Military Institute's ring sizes or the Dabney Coleman hazing allegations.
Claims that an institution "places highly" in rankings are just as vague as claims that it is "prestigious" and "excellent," and are more dishonest in that they seem to cite an authoritative source.
