No, it's not about elitism, it's about common sense. Her parents are wealthy and will have to pay the full price for her college education. She will not receive financial aid. Since her parents are paying the full cost, she should attend an ivy league university. If she wanted to be a little different, she should have applied to Brown. She would get her "cool" points, while still attending an ivy.

The University of Michigan

Lower Division out of state cost:
$49,350 - TUITION & FEES*
$11,534 - HOUSING & MEALS**
$2,454 - PERSONAL & MISC.
Total cost for first two years: $64,386 X 2 = 128K

Upper Division
$67,850 x 2 = 135,700

total cost: 263K


Yale cost:
Tuition and Fees $55,500
Room $9,400
Board $7,200
Estimated books and personal expenses $3,700
Student Activities Fee $125
TOTAL $75,925

total cost 75,925 x 4 = 303K

Malia's education at Harvard will be over 310K. Sasha should count her blessings and matriculate at Yale.

Apparently, her parents are not on board with her attending the University of Michigan over Yale.

I know CUNY grads who are doing much better career and financial wise than individuals who went to IVY leagues or recognized schools.
It's funny that you state the above, but her parents are not speaking about the University of Michigan; if anything, they are letting it be known that their daughter got into Yale as an early admit.
