The folly of Ivy envy

I saw (and enjoyed) The Social Network, and Jay Mathews extracted a good blog post about what the Facebook founders remind us about an Ivy League education.


(Facebook founder, Mark) Zuckerberg seems to have figured out that Harvard wasn’t going to do much for him. He dropped out, like his fellow billionaire Bill Gates, and neither of them has reenrolled. This year’s crop of applicants will discover if they embrace all their college has to offer, no matter where it ranks on the U.S. News list, they will get far more out of it than they ever expected.
