"A survey by the Wharton School found that in 2001, 10 percent of CEOs received undergraduate degrees at one of the eight Ivies; 48 percent earned them from public colleges and universities."

Not that it really matters, but the stat seems somewhat misleading. Could it be that fewer CEOs went to Ivy League schools as undergrad in part just because there are fewer people who went to Ivy League schools?

My guess is that fewer than 10% of collge students are in the Ivy League (someone correct me if I'm wrong here), so it seems that if you went to an Ivy League school, you're actually more likely to end up as a CEO.

If there's anyone who can shine some more light on this subject, please do so.
