121. "by ...earning their education, they have healthy self esteem."

Thank you!!
Exactly! They are not going thru life feeling like frauds, with all the accompanying mental disorders as Trump has.

Btw, my first example, about an excellent researcher being unable to get grant money because his PhD was from a southern state university, was my hubby. Hubby told our son of his plight and made sure he applied to some "elite" grad schools. He did and was admitted into two where his graduate assistantship paid the expensive tuition. (Btw, his SAT math score hit 800!) So far, our son has gotten every job he's applied for and on the spot too. It's the damn system: award the elite school grads.

I could tell you a longer decades-old story about my hubs taking some of his research up to a Havard researcher, in order to get his support, only to be told: "If we can't do this here at Harvard, what makes you think you can with your degree from ________ of _________ (southern state school)?' "
True story, I swear!
And so it goes.

Btw, hubs has a few gov't owned patents on that very research. Since he worked for the gov't, he, unfortunately for us, has seen very little monetary reward from those patents.
