I really mean this very honestly.
I remember being admitted to this 'prestigious' University and I was so miserable there.
The workload was twice as much (literally) as the previous program I was in, yet the jobs weren't really 'better.' The people were snooty, the school only cared about the really smart students, and it was a toxic environment to be in.
Why do people even want to go to these things? I just don't get it.

The prestige of graduating from the University that is prestigious is an enormous. Sure the workload was twice as much that's because very smart people go there and you can get into a great graduate program if you do well. And yes the University cares only about the smart students because they are producing tomorrow's leaders in science, medicine, politics etc. as far as the jobs not being better, did you graduate that prestigious university? If you did the jobs are far better. Try getting a high paying job at Apple or Oracle or DuPont or research grant from NIH if you didn't graduate a prestigious place. I disagree entirely with you and I e can back my assertions up0
