Launch Your Teens Podcast EPISODE 2

Title: Elite Education Leads to a Happier Life. True or False? 

(9 min)

Is it really true that elite private education is so enriching that it automatically leads to a happier, more fulfilled life after college? What does the research say?

In this episode you’ll learn 6 jaw-dropping, research-backed facts that just might make you think, “Wow—maybe the Ivy League isn’t such a good idea after all.”

You’ll also learn why “for profit” colleges should be avoided like the plague, and which great colleges are likely to be far better bargains than your local state university.
