The 2 young Men from Freeport who I know, are in a much different situation then Lacrosse players from LI. They transferred because the have a legitimate chance of plying Pro making real Money and had family down in Georgia to live with and public school. So great decision I think. For Lacrosse players there are know public schools in Maryland worth going to for lax and private school there is 25k on the low end up 35-45k per year most. All to say you had a high school season or experience, leaving your friends you’ve had since 1st grade both in school and travel and know million dollar plus potential contract at the end of it, just doesn’t make sense to me. Even if someone has the means to do it, it’s a high price. Just my opinion. Apples to oranges.

Do you have any idea how significant it is to have a chance to go to an Ivy or top ranked University? A "chance" of playing pro??? How about a chance to go to a great school, get a great education, get a great job, and have lifetime earnings greater than 75% of professional athletes.

Actually glad you asked the question, I am a product an Ivory league school. While I am glad I went to great University it did not make me who I am nor did it determine how success I am, It was all up to me and to be honest my life would not be any different if I had decided to go to any other College or University. I will not force my kids to go to any college or University simply because one may or may not be a better Education. Rather I have taught them to work hard for what they want and to go after it, it’s there work ethic and confidence that will make them successful. In fact, my two partners in my Practice both graduated from State Universities and most of our employees over half are from non-Ivory’s or what you would consider top Universities probably. I hire people for who they are, Not the high school or college they attended.

You are correct. It is the person not the school. I have many Ivy League graduates who work for me. Many of them produce subpar work and can’t make it in our business. However, Ivy League and top schools do give many more opportunities so long as they are taken advantage of. There are no guarantees just because somebody attends an Ivy League school. Having said all that with the exception of Yale, Harvard and Princeton there is really no difference between the other Ivy League schools and schools such as Williams, Duke, Hopkins, University of Virginia, Georgetown and other schools in that top 30 category. Schools rank six through 30 are identical when it comes to opportunity and success of graduates.

Lol. Those schools are not identical “the other” Ivies. Schools are ranked for a reason. A number 8 school is not comparable to a #20 school. The only thing I might add is that it also depends on your major. For example Penn (Ivy) has the #1 ranked business schools but you would be better off attending Michigan (#3), than Cornell, UNC, UVA (#7 tie). Princeton, Yale, Harvard not even in top. Do your research and go to the highest ranked program at a school you can get into. Check this out:

Thanks

Us news not the best ranking. Too many factors considered that most people don’t care about. Rankings mean nothing. The difference in score between numbers 6 and 30 are fractions of a point. Although they are number 6 and 30 in rankings given that a fraction of a point separates 25 different schools it is a virtual tie and the difference is not significant to base your decision on. You will impress your neighbors saying you go to number six but the important employers and the various admission officers at top schools and graduate programs know they are the same. If highest income is the only concern there are schools not in the top 20 that produce very high paying jobs. Ivy League schools have a lot of rich kids with huge connection getting very high paying jobs that give a false impression of graduated income. In fact a lot of non ivy also give that false impression. The better indicator is social mobility. A low income person moving to high income. Again those schools around ranked 6-39 are about the same in that category as well.

Actually it is not dense. It is very informed. Let’s get some education on US news world report rankings. They have national universities, liberal arts and regional universities. National and liberal arts are self-explanatory. Regional are the rankings of schools that don’t have a big presence of graduate schools but Undergraduate programs undergraduate programs are comparable to the liberal arts and national universities as they are scored the same. The only way to compare the schools that are in different categories is by comparing the total US news and world report score. Georgetown, ranked 22 has a US news score of 81. It is a national university. Providence has a US news score of 100 which is much higher than Georgetown. It is also higher than UPenn and others such as Cornell. Providence is a regional university because it does not have the presence of many grad schools. If it was a national university technically it would be ranked just as high as some of the Ivy leagues. So the above posts are correct and rankings mean absolutely nothing. If you wish to follow the rankings don’t look at what number a school is ranked. That is meaningless. You must look at the overall score to get a perspective of what that ranking actually means. You must look at the US news and world report score If you truly want to follow the rankings. But like many said above the rankings mean absolutely nothing for those who are actually hiring graduates from top universities and in the admissions office of graduate schools. Although providence is a very good school I don’t think anybody would say it can compare to Georgetown or UPenn. However If you never heard of any of these schools before and followed only the rankings and US news scores you would think Providence was better than Ivy league schools. The graduate schools know that and so do the hiring partners at big Firms and ignore rankings.

Do you really think Cornell is better than Georgetown? I will tell you that the ones doing the hiring do not think that way.

Just look at the stats. Grade point average for students admitted to the University of Virginia 4.35, Georgetown 4.01 ,Cornell 4.07 and UPenn 3.88 all out of 4.0. They all have the same ACT and SAT scores. They all seem very similar with Virginia being the highest admitted grade point average and Upenn being the lowest. I find it hard to believe that there is a distinction between any of these schools.

The only thing the Ivies have over Georgetown are a few more woke points. Got the Hoyas beat there, but not by much.

In fact, my two partners in my Practice both graduated from State Universities and most of our employees over half are from non-Ivory’s or what you would consider top Universities probably. I hire people for who they are, Not the high school or college they attended.

You are correct. It is the person not the school. I have many Ivy League graduates who work for me. Many of them produce subpar work and can’t make it in our business. However, Ivy League and top schools do give many more opportunities so long as they are taken advantage of. There are no guarantees just because somebody attends an Ivy League school. Having said all that with the exception of Yale, Harvard and Princeton there is really no difference between the other Ivy League schools and schools such as Williams, Duke, Hopkins, University of Virginia, Georgetown and other schools in that top 30 category. Schools rank six through 30 are identical when it comes to opportunity and success of graduates.

Lol. Those schools are not identical “the other” Ivies. Schools are ranked for a reason. A number 8 school is not comparable to a #20 school. The only thing I might add is that it also depends on your major. For example Penn (Ivy) has the #1 ranked business schools but you would be better off attending Michigan (#3), than Cornell, UNC, UVA (#7 tie). Princeton, Yale, Harvard not even in top. Do your research and go to the highest ranked program at a school you can get into. Check this out:

Well, this is the densest thing I've seen posted here in a while.

Maybe even worse than the ESL guy above claiming to be an "Ivory League" alum. LOL

Says they guy whose kid went to Georgetown and thinks that’s the same as an Ivy League degree. Wake up!

Georgetown is not too snabby.....
