Repost from Lynn O’Shaughnessy of The College Solution:
Affluent parents and teenagers often believe that “golden tickets” are plentiful if you attend an elite university and preferably one of the Ivies.
Earn a bachelor’s degree from a place like Harvard, Princeton or Stanford and job opportunities will magically appear.
Equally important, conventional wisdom suggests that unless smart, ambitious students graduate from one of these $70,000-a-year (!!!), gold-plated universities, their career success will be diminished.
All this is nonsense.
