I hear you, but my sons were both firm on wanting small places that were not pressure cookers where most of the student body is consumed with getting a 4.0 so that they can get ahead in the world. They are also somewhat introverted.

In addition, one of my sons has executive functioning issues. Not that this stopped him from getting mail from every Ivy school to apply to it. But he was not interested. More important to both that they applied to some other places which are known for really taking care of their students and making sure they will not get lost in the shuffle.

I hope you don't take what I said to mean that someone cannot get a great education at non-Ivy schools? But the demand to get in at a time of economic upheaval speaks for itself. And of course, the Ivies are not for everyone---and they have changed dramatically since my time (which I saw when my daughter went to Penn--she loved it though).

Of course, applying to MBA programs also is very different from applying undergraduate---the investment/return is much more directly relevant.

"Upon further election... er... reflection, the government respectfully requests dismissal in the underlying matter."
