University Rankings

It was difficult to miss the articles in the past week on the college rankings put out by US News. Every year when the rankings come out I'm inundated with emails from my alma maters bragging about their ranking and why I should donate money.  Of course the Ivy leagues, or the "elite" schools, come in at the top positions. I'm also reminded of a great article written back in 2008 (remember that year?!) about the disadvantages of an elite education. I thought I would post a link to it. It's a great read of a different perspective and helps explain where many of our "leaders" are coming from. Enjoy!
