  • Just the prestige of the name--not necessarily the quality. Why does he want an Ivy League? Does he even know WHY they are considered the Ivy League:-)
    Have him research the programs of all the possible colleges. Have him look at the credentials of the professors in the engineering departments..... And then decide if an Ivy League is still as important:-)
