The recent "let's visit Yale so we can all go there together when we graduate" trip on Gossip Girl got the old wheels a-turning in my head, and I was like, "Just like how Rory and Paris both ended up at Yale back in the day!" So very convenient that two headstrong girls who have ideas about where they want to go and the ability to get into any number of Ivy League schools wind up together, and as roommates. Same goes for Serena and Blair, and the rest of the gang, all of whom could use their prep school backgrounds to have their pick of the Ivys, and who all decide to check out Yale together. It's just very TV-friendly, and an easy way to keep the cast together. And while Blair and Serena's fights will likely be over boys and not who is going to be editor-in-chief of the school paper, it made me realize the amount of other similarities this show has to my poor beloved departed Gilmore Girls.
