Disadvantages of an elite education ...

I found this article interesting:
http://www.theamericanscholar.org/the-disadvantages-of-an-elite-education/
My favorite quotes:
?So are you saying that we?re all just, like, really excellent sheep??
and
"I was talking with one of them last year about his interest in the German Romantic idea of bildung, the upbuilding of the soul. But, he said?he was a senior at the time?it?s hard to build your soul when everyone around you is trying to sell theirs."
