A recent story with Rav Chaim Kniyevski: A boy came to him and asked for a bracha for hatzlacha in Yeshiva University.
Rav Chaim said "Half a day yeshiva, half a day university? Come to Israel. Here we have full time yeshivos. Then you'll get a bracha."
It would seem that Rav Chaim doesn't subscribe to the Torah-Umadda philosophy......
