How tough are Ivy League schools?

A librarian in my university did his masters in religion at Yale and he told me his professors expected to him understand AND memorize 200 pages a day

At the age of 18 I was capable of memorizing that much that quickly

At my current age - it would take a lot of training to regain that ability

I studied at a different school 

People say Harvard uses grade inflation so even dumb students can get straight A’s

    "... he told me his professors expected to him understand AND memorize 200 pages a day"   Understand 200 pages a day?  That is doable.  Memorize 200 pages a day?  You need to think more critically.  Memorizing 200 pages per day is impossible for all but a handful of humans.  He is kidding you, and you are kidding yourself.

    As tough as you want them to be...

    If you think you can do it, you can. If you don't then don't bother.
