This is a thread intended to discourage some of the "OMG I DIDN'T GET INTO AN IVY LEAGUE SCHOOL" conversation, and to prove that your life still has loads of potential in it.
What I did was simple... I brainstormed some of the most important and inspiring people I know. Some are family members. Some are employers. Some are friends. Some are teachers and mentors. Some are literary and cultural figures. Then, I looked up what college they went to, took out their names, and tallied up the results.
I encourage you to do the same, and post your results here!
