dereksurfs Posted November 20, 2017 Share Posted November 20, 2017 Hello, I have read several articles about this topic recently which provide interesting points to consider. Since each family goes through the college selection process considering 'many' factors, school prestige or notoriety invariably comes up. While it may not be one's prime objective, it is still a criteria. Could the significance of that prestige 'at times' be over valued perhaps in light of a one's career over their lifetime? Some studies seem to indicate that is the case. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/freedom-learn/200810/reasons-consider-less-selective-less-expensive-college Obviously, this may matter more for certain professions such as law versus lets say nursing. So the answer could actually be relative to one's field of study. Still, its interesting to consider real and perceived benefits along with the downsides which come with highly selective schools versus attending those which are lessor known. I am wondering what your thoughts and/or experiences are on the matter? 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
