Yes, you've got it right.

As far as your aspirations are concerned, here's a reality check. If you did not already go to an Ivy League school for undergrad, and you are a young white male, you will not get in. Perhaps more importantly is this myth of quality of education you may receive from such institutions. Yes, they can attract the top lecturers, but more times than not, the majority of your classes will be taught by other grad students, especially at Harvard. Yale is a little different. Cornell has an excellent 5 year program, but their Masters is not as strong. Princeton is pretty much a joke. Columbia is actually better than the image they project, and is a strong foothold if you wanted to work for someone in NYC.

But there are plenty of great schools out there that will give you superior educations for a fraction of the cost. Consider Rice, Washington U in St. Louis, UVa, Berkeley, SCI-Arc.
