New York Times columnist Frank Bruni has a new book out: Where You Go is Not Who You’ll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania. One of his fundamental messages is one I agree with: It doesn’t matter so much where you attend college as what you do when you get there. He tells the story of lots of “successful” people who didn’t attend schools that made the top 10 on the US News rankings. Once they got to college, these students were able to see themselves in a larger context, and appreciate qualities that high school – and a regimented college admissions process – had downplayed.
