There are plenty of other school where you could get a very solid education and be hired.
There are more people in the workforce who have gone to non-ivy league institutions than have.
If you can go to Harvard, go visit and sit in on classes. My daughter decided it wasn't the place for her.
Harvard isn't the be-all, end-all, and there are plenty of other places that are better, depending upon what you want to do.
I've seen it work against people too. Once you have a Harvard degree, you had better excel or you're a cartoon character.
