An Ivy League education will always remain an unquantifiable investment for most elites and nothing excites members of this circle more than the mention of a prestigious institution as their Alma Mater.
As a matter of fact, many Ivy League graduates wear their educational background as a badge and they really can’t be faulted for it considering the pocket-draining fees they doled out to acquire a degree from such schools.
