Good thing we’re “super-elite”

We didn’t need the latest study to tell us that Yale graduates have good career prospects, but apparently Columbia, MIT and Dartmouth graduates are not so lucky.

According to a new study top-tier professional service firms only look to recruit graduates from “super-elite” universities: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

The Chronicle of Higher Education had this to say on the matter:

You also can’t read this study without getting the feeling that the game is rigged. That obtaining a name-brand diploma matters more than actually learning something. That the gatekeepers at our nation’s most prestigious firms are pathetically shallow, outrageously parochial, and insufferably snobbish. The message is this:

It’s not what you did in college. It’s where you got in.

Ouch.
