The Disadvatages of an Elite Education: link

This is an excellent article. It is long, but so very important that the busiest of you, the ones with all the extracurricular activities and studying to bolster your college applications, read it.

Also, I promise that it is an easy, readable, thoroughly entertaining but also thought-provoking read. Read it, and consider what it means.

What it means to be a student and to pursue an education, and what you wish to learn through your education. Think about the purpose of education, the goal that you set your sights on and strain towards. Think about lofty goals and passionate ambition; beyond a career, job security, status, and wealth, there is charity, compassion for fellow men, zeal for the improvement of society. In short, an urge not to own the world, but to change it.
