What was the point of going to Ivy League?
After high school I attended Princeton while most of my friends stayed behind and attended the local flagship university. After graduation I did the standard banking and private equity stints.
My friends ended up getting, Bain, Google, and . The to work at a startup. The Bain friend transitioned into Bain Capitol. Google friend is still working there. And Pimco friend is on their way to becoming a PM and makes considerably more than all of us do.
So…what exactly was the point of attending Ivy League when my friends got the same tier of jobs at graduation?
Does Ivy not matter as much anymore because of the internet? Is it because high paying jobs are no longer just on the East/West coasts?
Kind of regretting my decision to attend and was just wondering if any of you have thoughts or opinions on this.
