Hi Daniella!


Many of your peers ask the same question! Use the search function at the top of the screen and enter: ivy league.


I don't believe their prestige affects the outcome of your future in the least! YOU affect the overall outcome of your future.


Many people feel that a degree from an Ivy League school provides advantages when seeking employment, but I would also encourage you to look into institutions that are highly rated for your desired field. For
example, there are many companies who target schools who have an outstanding Electrical Engineering program, or the highest rated Journalism program. A degree from one of those institutions would be as valuable!


Check out this entry..."How much more Ivy League Grads make more than you..."

Most importantly, you will get out of college what you put into it!


Kind regards,


Bridget

Thank you so much for your insightful input! I also thought the article you recommended was useful to compare the financial aspect of going to an Ivy League. Again, thank you so much for your time! Daniella F.
