ELITE COLLEGES? OR COLLEGES FOR THE ELITE? There’ll still be both after the higher education bubble bursts, but the overlap won’t be as complete.

UPDATE: Reader Marc Bacon writes:

A note from a recent grad (2.5 yrs ago) concerning the higher education bubble: I think that combining higher education into one category misses an important point. I have two degrees, one in accounting and one in information systems. Both are in “the sciences” and are technical. I appear to be unaffected by the bubble.

All high schoolers should know: for the most part, anything without math, science, or logic will not significantly add value to you.

True only to a first approximation, but worth considering.
