This paper discusses how prep schools and elite colleges create the atmosphere for the creation of an elitist habitus which then shapes a very upper class point of view. The paper explains that along with this socialization, this process also opens up vast opportunities within corporate America for those individuals lucky enough to have been included in such upper class schools, and this in turn eliminates many opportunities for those within lower classes who do not have such access to the social spheres of elite upper class schools.
