Remember also that the guy who wrote the New Republic article wasn't claiming that there's no difference between elite colleges and public universities (he specifically said he wasn't).

He was SPECIFICALLY criticizing the insane status race that's going on right now at the elites, the fact that the elites feed it, and that it's damaging young people (as Bostonian and the article noted, 6 ECs isn't enough for some of these colleges). So none of the comments in the last few posts are really relevant to that point.
