Then there are the Dale and Kreuger studies:

"In the study, the better predictor of earnings was the average SAT scores of the most selective school a teenager applied to and not the typical scores of the institution the student attended."

The Ivy League Earnings Myth - US News

And the differences in majors -

"...going to college and getting a degree is important, but what you major in can be three or four times more important." said Anthony P. Carnevale, who co-authored the study and directs Georgetown University's Center on Education and the Workforce. "The difference in earnings is more than 300 percent."

More thoughts on college expense and debt in a blog by Bill Bonner entitled "To the Class of 2015".

The Positive is that most of you, (us) have lived in a period where the U.S Corporate Equity has multiplied 28 times since 1981. The negative is that the economy has only increased 5 times in the same period. Sometimes, growing older has benefits.
