Ivy League Obsession

Why are people so obsessed with the Ivy League? Aren't McGill and UToronto ranked up there too?
Is there anything an Ivy League education can provide you with that you couldn't get elsewhere? And if you're going into medicine, will it help at all? I've heard that generally non-Ivy grads are more successful... then why do people think it's either Ivy or nothing. Everyone at my school thinks they're going to get into an Ivy but they don't know how hard it is especially for internationals. Should I just remind myself every time that as long as you work hard enough to get somewhere, the university you go to won't matter?
