take me back to the list of questions
- My son got accepted to University of North Carolina at

In the US, many people believe that the Ivy League colleges still
have more "snob appeal", and students often choose them over the top
public universities in hopes of having lifelong connections or more
name recognition. The truth is, however, that you can get an
excellent education with equal recognition at many other highly
competitive colleges. A college education is a composite of the
student's investment of commitment and interest, the facilities and
faculty the college can offer, and a certain intangible intellectual
quality which thrives in some campus communities and which withers
in others. Although the public is familiar with the cachet offered
by the Ivy League, there are many colleges and universities all over
the United States which are true gems.
