Jon asked:

This is the first actual wizard school book that I've ever read and I'm enjoying it. I've never read Harry Potter but I immediately noticed the influence of Earthsea in the wizard school plotting. Here is the question: what are some other well known books (pre-Earthsea) that also involve full-scale wizard schools, meaning not just informal master/apprentice. What were Le Guin's influences in this regard?
