The following paper examines how the "Cream of the Crop" gives one a sense of the value of an elite education, however, it is of the writer's opinion that a comparison of their subjects to graduates of less prestigious schools might have given a broader picture of the importance of an elite education.

From the Paper:

"In Cream of the Crop: The Impact of Elite Education on the Decade After College, Katchadourian and Boli examine not only how the college you attend, but the choices you make while in college shape and mold the rest of your life. In this book, a group of Stanford University alumni are followed for ten years after graduation (Katchadourian, 1994). It shows how decisions they made in college affected their family and career choices. It focuses on their professional careers, experiences in the workplace, their personal lives and their life's reflections a decade after graduation. This book is the first to examine these issues systematically (Katchadourian, 1994)."
