The Ivy Roadmap Pt. 1
What do you get by attending an Ivy League School?
Do you even want this?
Long hours. Hard work. Time. Money. Sacrifice. That's what it takes to get into an Ivy League School. The vast majority of Ivy League applicants are doing it for the wrong reason. They volunteer 100's of hours, waste 1000's of dollars and give themselves an anxiety disorder over something they would regret if they got it. So, before you devote the next four years of your life to this goal, let me tell you a few things an Ivy League School will NOT get you:
A Better Education: Every course you could ever want to take at an Ivy League School is already on YouTube for free. If all you want is to learn, you don't need an Ivy.
The Respect of your Peers: ZERO people will like you better for having attended an Ivy. In fact, you'll have to play it down your whole life or people will call you arrogant and stop being your friend.
