If you want to make it big in this world, there is something to be said for immersing yourself in an atmosphere that bleeds wealth and prosperity; universities whose total endowment makes the net worths of Macy’s and Prudential look like chump change. That is not to say that all hope is lost for anyone attending an institution not on this list, but if you think a degree in communication design management from DeVry (Editor’s Note: Fuck you, Keating) is going to get you anywhere in life, it’s time to do some serious reevaluating. Maybe you should just consider transferring to one of these schools.
