I went to a crappy UG on a full ride, got a 4.0 and managed to squeeze in plenty of drinking and partying time. But when I graduated, I was part of no alumni network to speak of and no one knew where the fuck I'd gone to school. (And it only continues: nothing like OCI firms asking polite, awkward questions about your UG come interview time). I'd gladly have incurred some debt for an HYP degree had that been an option for me at the time (i.e. had I been less of an idiot in general).
Network, network, the same bullshit answers that people say each time they have to compare Elite vs Average UG Schools.
Network given to Ivy students doesn't mean shit, the key to big jobs is to network by yourself and deal with the fact that you have to prove yourself, even from Yale.
Be more unique, those successful alumnis are getting their asses licked by many students already and the last thing they need is one more retard stalking them for a job, be more unique, Ivy schools don't give out "easy rides" like most people say, it's just a myth.
Proof ? I have friends who went to no name B-Schools and made it into I-Banking quite easily, how ? They knew what to do.
