Good luck but it depends on what sort of education you want. Harvard is a top school. But if you want a smaller school (and can get in) Yale's the best with places like Cornell and Chicago, and Duke very close. Yale and Chicago tend to turn out Law Professors, while Columbia and Cornell aren't as "academic" but more practical. G'town, not surprisingly is strong in government and administrative issues.
But what I saw were lots of well off black kids not making the effort we white boys did because they didn't have to. while there are those students who really love learning and studying, I think it is fair to say most students see grinding as a means to an end-honors, good job, prestigious grad school
Its like when I was a teaching pro in squash. I did wind sprints all the time but not because I wanted to but because my students or the other pros I played did too. If the squash God had told me I could beat Mark Talbott 4 out of 5 times without training, I never would have done that stuff like running up and down the stairs of the stadium of the college I coached at 4X a week for 4 years

You can stand up and call one of them a "son of a bitch"

25 years later, we all earn about the same amount. But I like my job a lot more than they like theirs.
