I dicked around in high school and went to a not so great undergrad (think UConn / WVU level). I also made the mistake of going for my MBA directly after undergrad at only a slightly better university.

I live in the northeast now and have a decent job but I feel embarrassed telling people where I went to school. It's like the second question people I meet ask every single time. I wish I had done it right from the beginning and went to a school I'm not so ashamed of. I don't think there's much schooling left for me especially since I already have debt from the MBA program from a state school. I wish I can just accept my background for what it is and not look back with regrets.

    What's your excuse?!

    Should be "feel ashamed of going to MBA right out of undergrad and not getting experience

    I really want to know what school you went to that you're comparing to uconn. Umass? URI? uNH?

    I will talk to you about this next time we meet, but what is your rationale for going to B School and paying 100K+ and giving up 2 years worth of earnings. I mean you clearly don't need to go to B School to "get laid or enhance your social life", in fact you could teach some of these insecure target school pricks a thing or two about girls. So why give up so much?

    Some of the posts in here are beyond depressing.

    "If I could just tell a girl I went to HBS and that I work at Carlyle, she'll want me."

    Holy fucking shit. It's as if some of you have never interacted with a woman in your entire lives.

    Believe it or not, many of times, it works.

    My bro went to HBS, and I know many of his friends from HBS. One guy in particular was balding, short, and a bit over-weight. A great guy, and great sense of humor. This guy was absolutely killing it with girls in Boston and NYC, and when I saw some of the girls he hooked up with, I was stunned.

    He largely credits his successful dating strategy to his academic pedigree and having a high-paying job. It is like when a guy drives an exotic sports car, he can stand from the rest of the crowd and has a leg up in his game. Unless you go to HBS and experience this yourself, I don't think you will know how awesome HBS is for dating propaganda.

    you realize that you come off like a CUNY kid right? I can say this, because I go to a CUNY - and have to hear people like yourself talk complete bullshit like you know what you're talking about. But you don't know anything about life. You're a fucking little kid - talking about picking up women at the bar using your alma mater??? You're probably not even 21 yet.

    Stop. It's embarrassing. srs.

    Amen brother. I agree 100% with this, and it's in line with what my friends are experiencing right now.

    I'm an atheist, but if there were a devil, i would gladly sell my soul to him for HBS admissions. It would be such an unreal experience to go there.

    holy shit, brah. are you really this retarded? no, I am older than 21 and I am a second semester senior at cornell. that's all you need to know. case closed.

    and, for the record, I don't drop the name of my alma mater at bars to pick up girls. I just flirt. I was discussing how HBS brand can work well in your favor if you're trying to hook up. learn to read
