and getting in is the EASY part. just wait till everybody there is rich and you, the broke-ass kid from east podunk, are scaping and saving every dime for laundry money. been there, done that. the old boy network knows social caste very well. all those creature comforts by which we self-select? forget about it. moments to bond over extended vacations (you'll be working)? forget about it.
get your BA or BS as fiscally efficently as possible. let the market sort out the jokers. it ain't where you come from that matters, only where you are going.
