Ever think you know it all? Want to know if missing out on that expensive Ivy League education made a difference? You can find out right now. Just click here and then click on the big [Take the Quiz] button. Once finished, you can compare your answers, right and wrong, with the results of students attending some of the nation's top colleges. And "Fear not!" The best score the average Harvard student could muster was but a "D+." It was downhill from there for the rest attending any other college in America. I'm sure you will do better.
Like Megan McArdle, whose mention of this gem on her blog led me to the quiz, I aced this exam. Unlike McArlde, I cannot claim that I genuinely knew all of the correct answers, but I recognized errors in enough of the other possibilities to choose the correct answers. (Thanks to that quirk, I always do well at multiple choice tests.)
By the way, parents of the ultimately college-bound might want to view the chart listing the top colleges and universities where students, on average, knew less after four years of attendance than they knew on entry.
