References to the vile "xoxohth" website gives one a clue to the venom intended. It doesn't take a Johns Hopkins MD with a specialty in Psychiatry to realize that some persons, utterly imbued with self-doubt, choose to make themselves feel better by assuming all of those who do not attend "acceptable" schools, at least acceptable in their twisted minds, are inferior in some meaningful way.
I have said this before, but I am sure that Johnnie Cochrane cries in his Chateaux Margeaux at night when he contemplates not having gone to a "good" law school. Maybe he could console John Edwards because he, too, didn't go to a good law school, and only has about $20 million in the bank to show for his utter waste of time in law school. When such persons actually get their first full-time job, they will understand how the real world works. No one gives a darn where you went to school, just what you accomplish. Getting into Harvard means nothing. Making your employer a lot of money, assuming you plan to work in the private sector, is all that matters. If given the choice of hiring a Wayne State grad who can make me $1million, or a Harvard grad who will only make me $500K, I'll take the Wayne State Grad.
Incidentally, a Harvard grad friend of mine was fired this week, by her third tier toilet boss.
Terrible arguments fill your post.
1. Examples like Johnny Cochran and John Edwards are terrible attempts to defend lesser schools. WHEN WILL YOU DIPSHITS LEARN ABOUT STATISTICS?! Yes, there are exceptions- you just provided two. That says NOTHING about the general trend that people from top schools will do better/make more money/have more job prospects than people from lesser schools. A couple aberrant, exceptional examples do not prove a statistically significant trend. Plus, even if your horrid argument is sound, MANY MORE famous/wealthy people attended top schools than lesser schools (ie, Senators, Presidents, partners- EVERYONE at Wachtell, Skadden, Cravath).
2. Getting into Harvard does actually mean something. It means you have better career prospects than students from every other school on the planet except maybe two. It also means you have access to jobs that people from lesser schools will never have.
