Ivy League universities like Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Princeton, Columbia and Dartmouth are seen as upper class and impressive.
They attract the smartest professors and generate graduates who go on to run tech companies, write famous books, and lead the country. They’re also mainly a really big waste of money and full of liberal groupthink.
Now, new reporting has now revealed just how big a scam most Ivy League universities are for students.
Fun story. An Ivy League new lawyer was late to her first interview. We let it slide because frankly our garage is not truly easy to locate. When she came back for her second interview, she was late. One of my partners met her at the door and told her to leave. @JesseKellyDC https://t.co/nlbWtbILso

In Debt and Out of Luck
Reporting from the reputable Wall Street Journal revealed that many Ivy League grads are annually earning around only $30,000 two years after graduating and have over $200,000 in debt.
Paying big money and ending up with a massive IOU while scrambling in a low-paying economy is a harsh dose of reality.
Here’s the thing: when you’ve gone to these schools that the liberal media and society told you will make you rich and prestigious, it’s quite a slap in the face to realize they were lying.
Columbia University didn’t like WSJ’s reporting, saying that they should have looked how students were doing more than two years later.
Still, they admitted it’s not ideal and not what they “want” the situation to be like for grads.
Fancy Degrees With No Street Value
Universities like Columbia offer fancy degrees with no street value. Students take out massive loans to get a master’s degree on film or literature and end up broke in a tiny closet apartment somewhere working for Subway.
One example is Zack Morrison in his late 20s who graduated from Columbia in 2018 with an MA in film. He’s now $300,000 in debt and making $30,000 per year helping make independent films in Hollywood.
He says that the Ivy League didn’t teach him what he truly needed to make it in life; Morrison also revealed that the “insane costs” of universities need to be questioned.
When a sample of nearly 1,500 female Ivy League students was asked whether they would date a Trump supporter, only 6 percent said yes. 💅🏻

WSJ found that most students hadn’t even started to pay down Ivy League loans; many were also earning far below what it would take to pay them back in a reasonable amount of time.
The fact is that Ivy League education is too expensive and there are various reasons for it.
One is that Ivy League schools have become corrupt centers of nepotism where administrations just want to rake in as much dough as possible from naive students.
Another is that diversity and inclusion offices all over these campuses cost a lot of money; the stuffed suits and skirts filling these positions also cost a lot of money each year.
All of that cranks up costs.
There’s just no reasonable way to say that many degrees are worth it. If you go to an Ivy League school, you’re unlikely to have any of a better job than if you go to a community college.
