Unfortunately, some posters believe grandiloquent protestations of elitism, cynicism, and sarcasm reflect well on their intellect. Lots of people on TLS have the brains, but not the hearts (or looks either, I'd imagine).
I'd imagine that last bit is entirely unnecessary for your argument. Although, if you're going to take a dig at cynics' looks, you really should do so in a more grandiloquent manner.
As for the OP, I can appreciate the notion that those whose biggest life problem is their admission cycle are lucky. I grew up abroad and in a war - I get the necessity for maintaining proper perspective/keeping the grand scheme in mind. That said, choosing not to attend a non-T14 =/= lacking perspective. It's perfectly possible to appreciate one's life while simultaneously declining to take out 180k worth of debt for a TTT.
