That's a factor, yes. But the kids don't always get it.

Plus, if you are used to being at the top of your class and getting A's, then go to an elite school where you are in the bottom third academically and getting Bs and Cs despite working your butt off, that can be hard to accept and causes all kinds of problems. Sad.
