My upbringing in a town with better means netted me one or 2 contacts that might be beneficial business wise. It does not beat college/professional networking by a long shot.

Based on your own logic, what districts have the highest acceptance rates to ivies and tier one private schools? The same districts that also offer incredible networking and interning opportunities.

That sounds like an awful lot of pressure. Besides, I don't even know whether my kids are Ivy League material yet. The older one only recently learned to wipe her own rear and the little one still tries to eat cat food.
