Yeah the swiss system is anything but standard at the moment and it is fighting tooth and nail to stay as wild and crazy as possible. Did you know that I have heard of people (swiss actually) who studied at the University of St. Gallen and then tried to get into the University of Zurich and were not given full credit for their degree?????? Is that nuts or what to have studied in the same country, speak the language etc and still not have acceptance of your university degree.

You would think they are past that by now. . . . . . I still question it
There is a big difference between recognition and acceptance. Some top universities are choosy on admission. Just like in the US. Harvard may reject a MS candidate despite a BS from another accredited US university.
