Harvard, Princeton and Yale. Wouldn’t you like to have any of those schools on your diploma? Wouldn’t you like to get a graduate degree from any of these institutions? Do you think that you’ll have a better shot at a really high paying and rewarding job if you graduated from these schools? As much as we’d like to believe in equal opportunity here in the US, the truth is there is a hierarchy. Ivy League schools have a better reputation. They open more doors and can actually connect to a larger network of alumni that may lead to high paying jobs and positions.
