Dont think that is the consensus - and certainly did not mean to imply mid-caps were a bad investment - my point was that mid caps can easily be picked up in large and small or total market fund combo - sometimes unknowingly skewing an intended allocation. Agree- just picking a fund (in any capitalization) is not sufficient: Once you have your choice make sure it fits your strategy in reality not just because of its title.
