Illicit torrent downloads: intimidating at first, but once you get the hang of it, really fun. Or so I’m told! Apparently, students at Georgetown and George Washington University feel the same way. Both schools are in the top 50 U.S. schools for use of BitTorrent in 2012, according to an analysis from TorrentFreak.

George Washington students grabbed so much movies, software, and music that the university ranked 6th out of the top 50 schools. Georgetown came in at a much more law-abiding, but still not that law-abiding, 41st.
