Reality: Every university/college is not equal. Some are harder to get into than others, some are more prestigious than others, and its these universities which usually have more money, better teachers and better facilities.
The university that you go to says nothing about your intelligence, or the kind of person you are. But some universities, you can expect a better education from.
You can’t be offended, and pretend that you think all educations are created equal when you spend astronomical amounts of money to send your children to a private school every year. That shows that you understand that every education is not created equal, and that that prestige is worth something, unfair as that is.
