I never could quite understand this college rating system. For example, during the first two years at Michigan or Michigan State you are more likely than not to have classes where there are hundreds of students in the same classroom, have an instructor who may or may not have a clue on how to teach, or have a foreign instructor who may or may not be understandable. I suspect that Harvard might not be that different.
What is different is that places like Harvard are heavily favored by the rich and powerful. These people expect their sons and daughters to also become associated with wealth an power and thus you find that many leaders coming from Harvard. It is no secret the lengths to which the parents of these sons and daughters will go to prepare them for (1) getting into Harvard and (2) staying enrolled.
But to make sure the institute does not fall victim to inbreeding, a significant number of up and coming "poor" people are admitted on merit thus allowing the school, in future years, to boast on their achievement and allow them to demonstrate that they are truly the uno school.
A lot of this rating system is just plain bogus and full of self-deceit.
