From their methodology
Quote:
Bachelor’s Only: Only employees who possess a bachelor's degree and no higher degrees are included. This means bachelor’s graduates who go on to earn a master's degree, M.B.A., M.D., J.D., Ph.D., or other advanced degree are not included.
Pharmacy is an advanced degree.

I think talented, motivated people can be successful regardless of where they go, but their success is much more likely if they actually go to elite colleges and surround themselves by elite talent.
I've been noticing your comments and couldn't help but ask, didn't you say that you work in the AUC?

I did several years ago. I still have a pretty good pulse on the place through the contacts with whom I've kept in touch.

Just for grins and giggles:
~ the graduation rate for first-time, full time students enrolled in four-year institutions is about 54 percent and less than a quarter of part-time students graduate.

~ in a 29 Oct '12 article [ The Persisting Racial Gap in College Graduation Rates : The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education ]

New data compiled by the National Collegiate Athletic Association shows a graduation rate of 44 percent for all Black students who entered college from 2002 to 2005 and earned their bachelor’s degree within six years at the same institution. For Whites at these institutions the graduation rate was 21 points higher at 65 percent. Black women had a graduation rate of 48 percent compared to 38 percent for Black men.

Black student athletes had a graduation rate of 65 percent. This was still 20 percentage points below the rate for White student athletes. In many cases, student athletes have a high graduation rate than other students due to the fact that because of athletic scholarships student athletes are able to remain in college without have to worry about paying bills for tuition and room and board.

Over the past 20 years, Black students have shown steady increases in overall college graduation rates. But the racial gap between Whites and Blacks has remained relatively constant.

What did you do to help improve the conditions that you mention when you worked at the AUC?

What did I do to attract quality students and convince them that they should pay $30,000+ for an education that they could get for 25% that cost 3 miles to the east? That wasn't my role.

So are saying that no private school is worth it? Or just this particular collection of private schools are not worth the money? Is the return on investment exceedingly higher at an Emory or Agnes Scott?

What was your role? I'm not being facetious. Just asking...
