The dirty little secret is that the Ivy’s have mostly developed into a place for making connections into government, or into the grifter structure that lobbies government, or uses any of a 1000 ways to tap into government largesse.
Their educational product is becoming obviously inferior with a few specific programs. (Harvard Law not being one of them)
The Ivy’s are overrated as places to learn or obtain an “education.” They are not overrated as places to get a cushey career started.
The Ivy League schools have the most difficult standard for admissions ever in order to create their image. Then those who are connected get their children in there via bribes
Exactly Ivy League is about connections more than anything else..
Every study done in the subject shows that an Ivy League degree vs a non Ivy League degree makes no difference on avaerage to earnings or success
It has to be!
All you need to do is listen to these supposed 'Ivy League grads' when they speak off script.
It's like they have never had instruction in history, economics, or in speaking/writing the English language, etc. They routinely get it wrong both in what they say and the way they express themselves.
