3. Oh, very true. It's not like these schools take just anybody. You do have to be uber smart,

and to act as if lesser-rated schools have the same quality of students as a top-rated school is a big stumbling block to these statistics. Maybe the gist of the piece is aimed toward the students who COULD have a shot at being accepting into top schools; this gives them a reason to justify the cost. If they can get in, it will be worth it.

But that brings me to my points--if we compare the success rates of similarly-rated students, one group who attended a top school and one group who did not (for reasons unrelated to their intelligence, drive, or personality, we could maybe separate out the reasons why the top schools deliver.
