Not a bad decision. At the ivy, he would just be another smart kid, and would have had to go balls against the wall for every class. At Alabama, he'd stand out from the rest, get full attention of his professor for mentorship, and easier classes so he can enjoy life. He can save ivy for graduate school. Ivies are more renowned for graduate and professional school anyway.
Plus this kid must be rolling in money if the ivy were charging him. Usually it's damn near free if the family makes 100k or less
probably a better education at alabama anyway. ivy leagues are ez. you pretty much get a free ride once you get in. professors change grades to make you look better and themselves by reflection, etc. you get a far better education at a state school where professors dont have an image to uphold.
Hopefully it worked out for him. Some companies only recruit from top universities. I got a job at a VC firm out of Stanford that paid me well over 100k...at 22 years old, insane.
That VC firm only recruited from Stanford or UC Berkeley
In the end, the university you go to doesn’t matter to employers and you are just left with Student Loans which you end up bitching about when you graduate. It Only matters when your headed off to law school or to be a doctor, etc.
I'd just like to clarify some things about colleges.
Ivies aren't cheap, but they also offer the most financial aid. For my brother's case, going to an ivy was cheaper than an in-state public school that offered him 10,000$ in financial aid annually. If the kid in the video was really poor, I assure you at least 1 of the ivies offered him nearly a full ride to where he's paying no more than 10k annually.
And to people who think ivies aren't really that amazing, the statistics dont lie. The average income of people who graduate from ivies is usually 90k+, which is literally 30k more than the avg. That means you're already paying off ur debt. It also does matter for jobs, ivies give so much more opportunity. When u look at the people at big successful businesses, you see a majority from ivies. Businesses like goldman sachs literally recruit from top-level universities, including ivies plus ppl at like NYU stanford and etc. You dont see ppl from a place like university of alabama.
However, im not ragging the guy in the video's choice. A courseload at ivies is REALLY difficult. Kids who make 95+ in all their classes now make averages of B's. Plus, it still is more expensive than alabama. However, ppl must see that ivies really are often worth it.
Sounds like a bad choice. If my kid had the chance to go to Harvard and he fucking rejected it for fucking University of Alabama, I'd be so pissed. I'd have picked up another job and worked day and night for all the money I can get to support his education. Unbelievable. But I guess someone like him will find his own way.
purefatdude2 I wouldn’t say Ivy League schools have a better education, but I do agree that you have a better chance of getting a job because people like Ivy leagues for the brand, It looks better to graduate from an Ivy League rather than Alabama
LOL $200,000. Jokes on you, Harvard is free for all families that has net income less than 65k. Ofc he his family is rich, then yeah, he did save them 200k. Saving rich people money, yep, that's what we need.
The ivys are among the wealthiest corporations in America. They won't give you an education by their professors, as they prefer to use free labor supplied by the grad students, who just got their lunch cut by Trump, inc. But they will give you a ticket to the elite class, so that you can do their bidding. Don't worry, they will pay you generously when you sell them your soul. You can always buy it back later, as long as they get their 13% return on their investment!
He will get a better education this way. They don't educate undergrads at the ivys. The t.a.'s (who are not trained educators, btw) teach almost all the classes, while the faculty does research, which gets sold to industry. The undergrads are expected to educate themselves (which is why they only accept really motivated, intelligent self-starters who they know can still graduate with good grades and keep the overall gpa up even when no one is teaching them). The undergrads are meant to fend for themselves and foot the bill. Don't kid yourself- these are private corporations that use their reputation for profit. Boycott the ivys. Go to your local and state colleges. That is where people who truly want to educate go to work. Those who get recruited to teach at the ivys are brought there for their reputation and ability to generate income and interest, and has nothing to do with their ability to educate. Stop footing the bill for these private corporations! Anyone want to know what Yale's endowment is? I'll tell you. It's $27.2 BILLION. Yes, with a 'B'.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
