Ivy League Universities

The increase in overall enrollment in colleges means it has become more difficult to be accepted into very competitive colleges and Ivy League universities.

How important is it to you that your child attend an Ivy League school?

18%  Very important. My child will be more successful with an Ivy League-education and will be applying to many of these schools.
19%  Important. He will definitely be doing everything possible to get accepted, but we'll have a back-up plan.
34%  Not very important. Many colleges and universties offer a high caliber education -- often at a much lower cost.
29%  Not at all important. Ivy Leagues are overpriced and overrated.
