Aiming For A Top 100 College? It’s Not At All Necessary To Thrive, Poll Finds

When it comes to having a thriving life and a job you like, it helps to go to college, but a new poll finds that the benefits don’t hinge on getting into a certain type of school.

In fact, the survey conducted by Gallup and released Tuesday finds little difference in reported well-being between college graduates overall and those who graduated from colleges in the top 100 in the widely publicized U.S. News & World Report rankings.

And although college generally puts people on a track toward a better life, the poll points to lots of room for outcomes to improve.
