a degree from a Ivy League University such as Harvard?
I interviewed a guy from Harvard once (that was over 15 years ago). I saw his snooty snobby school as a minus, not a plus, but I tried to put that aside and just look at it as "just a degree."
I see things a bit differently now. I know that some of those big schools have outreach programs and give scholarships in underserved communities to deserving students. I realize now that a school can be seen by some as snooty but that doesn't mean its graduates are snobs.
Apparently Harvard in particular is especially vulnerable to this problem, to the extent that people avoid mentioning that they are alums.
