Poor Kid at the Rich School: The Cost of Diversity

Many low-income students are told that elite colleges and universities are actually a better bang for their buck, as many students do not pay the full cost of attendance. But what happens once you get there? What do you actually see? This Campfire discussion focuses on the specific issues that you encounter if you are the "poor kid" who attends an elite school. What happens to the psyche once you are there, and how does your life differ from your peers post-grad?
