This may have been already said but for the sake of it, let racial bias be shoved aside, ALL parents with the similar mindset are extremely stubborn when it comes to subjects like this. Even with statistics, advice from psychologists, hell when someone even researched all the hypotheses between the correlation of top institutes and student well-being, they'll still deny it. That's just how they are. Primarily because it was education that stimulated into the life of having a high paying job and good securities like engineers, lawyers, doctors, etc as the saving grace from poverty. That's why the racial bias of non-white parents pushing the highest of education is so prominent, because it guarantees success and an escape from being jobless and running low on money. My parents are both medical experts. My mother is a dentist and my father is an anaesthetist with a PhD and they both grew up in poor families and now...fair to say we are a wealthy family. Now the cycle pushes on to me and my sister. My sister graduated with a medical degree and I'm now a med student in Belgium. side note : My mother is malaysian singaporian and my father is belgian. In Belgium, we work with entry exams btw for medicine. TLDR; These parents most likely won't change their minds over this. Mainly because having a respectable job with high paying salaries trumps their care for your well-being most of the times. They see highest of education as the golden ticket out of poverty (which it is btw)

so, harvard(or any other thing like it) isn't a better education, is just a high exigency stablishment that takes the best students from other stablishments and say: we educated them, when in reality the genius of these students comes from themselves and the hard work or great talent that they already had

Watching this makes me glad I was accepted into my second choice college. It's still a notable engineering college; I just wanted to go to the dream college for the name and because I thought I would fit in. However, I likely would not have a 4.0 GPA after my first year if I had gone to my dream college. My family would also have had to pay more for me to go to college. I'm happy with where I'm at.

Does one go to college for academical growth or to be molded into the perfect employee ? All this talk about achievements and achieving blinds one to the fact that these are signifiers, billboards that shelter you from a reality that probably may not fit you. For instance all of the big companies he names are proving to be problematic in privacy sense and are starting to have more and more antagonistic relationships with the EU and other governments. Working there is like working in a giant bureaucracy, your efforts will drown in white noise, will go unnoticed and will not make the world a better place.

Oh my gosh... You went to Harvard.... Your life must be so hard... I'm so sorry you had to deal with that inconvenience. If only there were a way to avoid that horrific existence. After watching videos like this, it reminds me of how lucky all the starving children in Africa are... They are so lucky not being able to find food to eat, or be able to go to school at all. They don't have to deal with all those social pressures of getting good grades, or the stress of applying to Google or Facebook. I hope that this man can find a way to starve nearly to death and forget everything he learned. Maybe then he will be happy. Maybe then his family will have lower expectations of him.

This isn't anything new. Joining the military strips you to nothing and throws your successes in the past in the trash and they build you back up again and enforce the mentality that you are not better than anyone else despite how smart you are. If you go into the fleet with this mentality, everyone will hate you and you will get nowhere.

Ivy League Grad here, its all bullshit. These degrees are just overpriced tickets to the upper class. The only benefit I saw of my Ivy league education was that I was surrounded by smart people. But let me tell you, smart people don't necessarily make the best teachers and often times the highly competitive students made for awful peers. I wonder frequently if the quality of my education would have been better at another school where I could have received more attention and the faculty was less focused on abstract ideas of difficulty and prestige that don't really influence your education. I would say my critical thinking and analysis skills increased greatly but many of the skills that actually transferred to my career could have been learned somewhere much cheaper.

IVY league students are people power we use when we establish our companies...they're happy with the salary we give them. Ultimately, if you're not pursuing STEM, you should really consider other, MUCH BETTER, alternatives than college....point is to make money, cultivate choices, become the man the woman you want to be for yourselves, then the people...I never finished college, yet i attained positions where i rejected IVY league students and accepted others....

This video applies to anyone who goes to a school that fits their academic level. Funny thing about a school such as Harvard, you end up doing better academically as a commuter than living on the campus. You are better off missing all the social drama and the frequent social excuses for consuming alcohol. Better to just remain a nerd or "grub" than venturing into the unsolvable troublesome complexities of campus delusional dating. Find yourself a small group of good friends and become outcasts to that university's universe, and in four years you will get that valuable piece of paper that has not trained you to do a damn thing. Congratulations, now you are smart enough and tough enough for the world, and owing a sizeable student loan, why you are a full fledged bill paying tax paying citizen as well.

One of my friends got to Harvard and due to the stress, he ended up having a sex/drug-based relationship with a monkey. At the end of the 3rd semester, he killed the monkey as a sacrifice for Satan. He got a job in a satanic sect financed by Gates and Rothchild groups and they are trying to destroy the world of monkey island.

UVA’s business school was like this. All the folks were great, but since the school needed to delineate students across GPAs for the employers, the students and the school together created a very stressful environment. I contributed to this somewhat and we all did. I won’t forget the day I walked through a computer lab at 4:00am in the middle of the semester. Two major classes for everyone had reports due in a couple days. 80% of the computer seats were taken. The school in the middle of the night had libraries busier than anywhere. There were times where I would text a group of 4 on a group project and everyone would respond within 5 minutes at 3:00am. It’s tough to compete with geniuses and other smart folks, who are willing to go without sleep.

I wish he could've, lived his life and not focused on what his family thought he should be doing, and what he thought he needed to fulfill with 4 years of senseless schooling. That's time wasted from finding his true self, and focusing on Diet Health, which is the only important thing that matters, which is what most of us neglect unfortunately. All this was for the sake of chasing money and false dreams, all we need is our Health, which is number one!

I always hate hearing about students who tried their best and still couldn't do as well as they wanted. I was the same way all throughout my school years. That our best wasn't enough, it didn't cut it. I dropped out of Uni because of that pressure, and my health, both mental and physical, was going to break otherwise. Coming to terms with your best just not being enough for what they demand of you in school is never easy, and I hope somehow more people understand the extreme pressure students nowadays feel in the school system.

I couldn't finish college. When you live with toxic family members that care more about how much attention you need to give them and focusing on yourself to get through school, you kind of develop depression before school can do that for you.

I got into a top ten university for my graduate studies after doing my bachelor at a decent university. The thing I always feel to be very important and helpful is not to compare your results to others but yourself. As Alex Chang mentions it is not easy when you suddenly do not do as well as before, that’s normal, now you are playing in a different league. Comparing your results to other people can get really destructive and demotivating, instead focussing on improving your results is very constructive. If you get 65%, work out what went wrong, and try to improve. If next time you get 70% this is extremely rewarding, and altough not perfect, is proof that you are learning and progressing in your studies, and that is really what it’s all about :)

Harvard was built decades before becoming a school, built in anticipation of a need in the future. Isn't that astounding? Made a huge investment on something that has never been done before... then decided to make school compulsory in 1850s. I'm sure that wasn't part of a plan or something.. by 1850s all your cities seem to be laid out by some super genius mathematician. San Francisco still using the same streets now as they did in 1849 (Miner '49er)... people were smarter before schools came along.

It is obvious that his method of studying was wrong. I have been to these universities. A lot of students, especially Asia students, were very struggling. It was not because of the complexities of the subjects. It was because their method were wrong and they did not understand what was logic and how to use it. Just imaging, all the things they learn in universities are those someone has already invented or founded. Technically speaking, these things are not new. In real world, the only hard thing is to find something new, but university is not.

Harvard isn't the problem. It's kids thinking they're ready for college just because they got A's in high school. Just like when students cry about the pains of Law School. When again, just because you got good grades in college, doesn't' mean you're ready for a serious graduate program.

95% of HS grad job applicants my company tested in 2006 could not pass English comprehension tests from my 5th grade class. Same with physical science tests from my 7th grade and math test from my 8th grade year. Only 10% of 4 year lib arts grads passed them. Basically, public education in the US started dying a rapid death ~1975 (this was in a major metro area with one of largest tech econs in world. TONS of $ given to school systems.)

this is such hypocrisy, you guys want to promote this idea, it´s something you thrive off and use to promote the illusion of an elitist image. Or in Bourdieus words: "The point of my work is to show that culture and education arent simply hobbies or minor influences. They are hugely important in the affirmation of differences between groups and social classes and in the reproduction of those differences."

Totally understandable, I've had very very similar experience during school time, when I was transferred to Math School to be more specific. Before that time I used to be A-only kind of person, when I started in new place I was constantly getting C's and it was super stressful, mainly because there're people who're constantly getting A's with no effort at all. I guess my perception has changed, when later in my life one person has said: "It doesn't matter how others are doing, you should decide for yourself what you want". Everyone wants to be successful, and it's normal, but not at cost of mental health.

Join the rest of us WASP Americans and start your own companies (skip college for a few years) and attend your local universities. Yes, receiving the mark of the USA Praetorian Guard by attending Harvard/Yale/Whatever and joining the globalist security state is a fast track. But in the long run, the Ivy League brand is dying faster every day and these hucksters are being exposed all the time. Now with infusion of wokeism into the Ivy League, their discrediting process is almost complete. Most Americans today will associate Harvard with diversity admission, woke ideologue, dumb rich kid who's also woke.

Just a heads up to the "youth" if you are going into a STEM discipline no one cares about ivy league schools and their faux prestige. I got into Princeton to get a graduate degree researching proteomics. I came from a state school and had a 3.74 undergraduate gpa. You don't need a 4.0.....networking...perfectionist stress....or to come for money, the caveat being this is only in regards to stem grad school. Now if business or humanities is your jam, good luck.
