For some reason, I always thought those that came from literally nothing always end up making it...

Also: what do you define sucess as? Wealth? Happiness?

Absolutely impossible to answer, especially as you can't decide on what success is.

Whoever does more with their life and thinks of themselves as successful. Private school kid could have 0 motivation and laze around on their butt all of their days doing nothing, but a state school kid could work 40 hours a week earning good money, getting a good house etc from the get go because they're motivated.

No - 99% of those who come from nothing will achieve nothing - sad fact of life

on average, private school kids do better. better education + access to connections = more opportunity.

at my university, i know a guy who came from a US prep school (yankie term for private school) and he did three internships before he even came to university.
