Long before this latest craze, Harvard etc. was the place to go to meet
people. It doesn't matter what your grades are. You will meet the elite
who will run politics, business, and who knows what else. Joining the
elite clubs gives you ins for life if you are accepted.
Even at lower levels, where you got your MBA or doctorate is a bragging
right thing. You won't be asked what you did your dissertation on - you
will be asked what university you went to.
The only way to beat this system for the individual is to be a genius.
Nobody cared where Einstein got educated. bill w
