Ok. I'm going to get sh*t on REAL hard for making this thread but whatever. I just got an e-mail from a friend who just started HBS. I'm pasting the contents below verbatim, except for names of course.

"Sup Brady! It's great hearing from you. Hope chi-town is treating you well. But yeah, HBS just started, still going through orientation. Man, I'm having a f*cking blast so far. Tons of parties, people getting blasted every night. Of course once classes start, we will calm down just a little bit. Lol. But i've been going out to tons of spots in boston and meeting chicks left and right. You're right about the H-bomb. It's definitely powerful!

Half of my classmates are in relationships, but it's not going to last past black october. People are hooking up like rabbits already, and any long-distance relationship will not last. I have my eye on a few chicks; we'll see what unfolds.

You should join us for a trip once you're done with applications. We already have plans to go to brazil, vegas, miami, carribbean, europe. Pretty much wherever we want.

Anyways, gotta go. Let's keep in touch, and let me know if you need any help on mba essays. Best of luck, brah."

The only thing that made me laugh here was the idea that the dude thinks things are gonna calm down once classes start. I remember saying the same thing to myself at pretty much this same point in the year. I was wrong.

So true. B-school doesn't calm down socially except during job interviews and finals.

This guy worked his butt off to get to where he is, so i'm happy for him. He almost never went out in college and worked 90 hour/weeks for the past 4-5 years. So he's ecstatic about the chance to relax, have fun, and have the social experience that he missed out on.

So your 'friend', who undoubtedly knows you have a hard-on for HBS decides to send you an email about how awesome it is there to rub it in your face? Sounds like a real douche canoe.

I sent him an e-mail just to catch up and see how things were going at school, along with just basic questions on how he's enjoying it. And that was his response. So no, he did not send an usolicited e-mail just to rub it in. He's a nice guy, not a douche.

Sounds like he's loads of fun. That's good to hear. But Brady, after viewing most of your posts about bschool. It seems like you're going there for mainly the socializing aspect.

No personal shots. But during your undergrad years, did you party much or was it strictly books books books?

dear brady~

i am sincerely concerned for you man. you are obsessed with HBS and i feel like you're setting yourself up for a tremendous disappointment... and i'm not talking about the disappointment of not getting in. i'm sure that you can have fun, meet people and enjoy your life even now if you really put your mind to it. stop posting things like this... there is more to life than business school!

I swear if I hadn't met you Brady I would also think you were trolling here...you really need to get the B School obsession out of your head. An MBA from a top school will not save your life or automatically make you don juan. I swear, you are like a broken record with this b school shit. If you want to get good with women, go ask women out....don't go to b school.

what happens if you don't get in? Will life be over? no.

What if you do? Will your ego likely explode to douche-canoe dangerous levels? likely.

Either way, have mercy on us.

Just playing devil's advocate here, but the last time I met Patrick face to face, it was at his apartment while he was in b-school (M7, obvi). Literally one of the nicest and most expensive apartments in the city, all-new construction, hardwood floors, 18 foot ceilings. One of those places with 24-hour staff and modern sculptures in the lobby.

When I walked in at 10 AM, the place looked like someone had driven a train through it. Green baize laid out for poker, cards everywhere, empty bottles of expensive liquor, shades drawn against the morning sun. The guy himself seemed like he'd had a rough night, but he still looked pretty buyside, considering. I don't recall specifically what the mess consisted of, but cigars and random discarded lingerie would not have looked out of place in the scene.

PLUS, I happen to know for a fact the dude traveled broadly and did pretty well with chicks while in school. Also before school. I'll spare you guys the details and just say that even I ( even I!) envied the shit he did. (I'm not blabbing, but we kinda run in similar circles; word gets around.) If he weren't such a nice guy, he'd probably come off as a douche-canoe of epic proportions just based on the facts of his life.

My point in saying this is not to kiss Patrick's ass, but to point out that business school is where some of the brightest/best twentysomethings in the world go to party. You can't argue that fact. As such, it is nothing like the way most people live -- not even most of the finance folks on this board. After a while it's easy (for me personally, at least) to forget that.

It is true, though, that b-school won't make you anything you weren't before. How can that be true if b-schoolers ball noticeably harder than others? Pretty simple -- selection bias. Most of the ones who get in have something in common.

Now: any ideas as to what that might be?

8/28/12

So to put it succinctly, you're saying that B-school is a club in which only the cool kids are allowed in to party?

Go ask them out? No, don't underestimate the ladies' man status Brady fancies about. He's dreaming of the "Prince Harry" effect: with a snap of fingers, tons of bikini ho's flow in. At his presence, any specie with a vagina within 10 miles wants a taste of his dick.

Brady I hope you're aware of how irrationally excessive and unhealthy your obsession with HBS is. Your friend's email is typical of any school's orientation (excluding the overseas trips, although I'm sure that happens at all other top B-Schools). You don't need HBS to have a good time and get girls. You already have the money and prestige (working at a hedge fund + graduate from Wharton undergrad) so if you're not getting girls right now, it's because of your personality. A little bit more prestige in the form of HBS therefore isn't going to change much, if anything.

Stop putting HBS on a pedestal. It makes you look childish, stupid, and out of touch with reality.

Wait, Brady is a Wharton undergrad graduate and works at a hedge fund? And he's obsessed with HBS for what reason? Most of us aren't prestigious enough to take a shit in the same bathroom as you, let alone look you in the eye during a conversation. You're "living the dream" for 98% of people on WSO -- shouldn't that already feel pretty good?

i'm sure many of you folks reading are thinking to yourselves: hmm, so in order to be a baller, i need to already be a baller. seems like a tautology. what's a scrub like me to do?

the solution: schmarvard

it's a new school i'm planning to found. for 10 easy payments of $129.95 USD, you too can be a baller. all you will need is a 750 GMAT and a desire to ball hard.

a schmarvard admission ticket will include poker chips, condoms, travel guides, and a pocket-sized book of pickup lines.

orientation will mostly consist of jello shots and a short speech beginning with: "here at schmarvard, we believe in cultivating the inner baller, and so have done away with frivolous things like classes and business departments. go forth brave ones, and ball. hard."

weekly galas will naturally include the finest champagne dripping off the teats of exotic burlesque dancers.

so watch out for schmarvard, coming to a new england city near you.

For all of you scrubs out there who are wondering, "I wonder how these hard ballers ball so hard at strip clubs," I will be teaching the strip club comportment portion of the curriculum at Schmarvard. This class is traditionally at least 2x oversubscribed... but if you act now, you can skip the auction system altogether and guarantee yourself a spot on the class roster for one easy processing fee of $949.95. That's just $949.95. Spots are filling up. Act now.

TheBigBambino:

Oh, and this is a serious question - there are a lot of them. I know at least a dozen.

The BYU kids tend to stay together, stay pure, have kids.

Many of them try to go out and ball hard without... uh... balling. So they are just there, stone cold sober in the middle of the night, drinking ginger ale, trying to network and fit in with a bunch of shitfaced monkeys until they can justifiably go home to their wives.

You can pick them out in the Facebook photos afterwards. In the pictures of all the drunken people doing shots and holding onto each other for dear life, the BYU kids are the bright, perky, blue-eyed white dudes (usually with blondish or sandy hair) off to one side of the photo, standing up too straight, smiling too widely, and holding (too obviously) a half-full cup of ginger ale and/or Sprite. (Diet coke for the hardcore, though I think there may be a rule against it.)

By the time they get to b-school this isn't even hard work for them anymore. They get tons of practice from their teens on up; they're battle-hardened veterans of a thousand resolutely cheerful "parties" with unspiked punch.

I will say this for them, though: they tend to be exceptionally good (and even slightly dirty) dancers.

8/29/12

****! even I can speak better than that. Highly doubt the possibility of Brady getting in someday by having friends with such style and mentality. Anyway, HBS is not as an Everest as it used to be these days.
But whatever, guess there are always people who need this kind of source to jerk off.

8/29/12

Umm...sounds like college..like...anywhere? Congrats to your friend on finally having a social life, I feel almost sad for you that THIS is something amazing to you.

I think someone at the beginning said this too, but saying you went to Harvard is not going to mask the fact that you're socially awkward. Once you try the "I go to HBS" line for the first time and inevitably fail, you'll glance over at the alpha male next to you (who probably went to Babson College) with a smokeshow hanging on his arm and hopefully it dawns upon you - it doesn't matter where you go to school.

8/29/12

Brady should turn down HBS even if he gets in, it is bound to disappoint given the expectations Brady has build up (unless he takes delusion to another level which would not surprise me)

8/29/12

HBS is good for specific reasons - mainly to get some jobs and to learn a little douchiness. It just sounds like a party blast to a lot of people because, once you spend your life studying calculus and building stupid little clubs, any party with boring half-ugly people is incredibly awesome.

If you want fun, go to the worst possible school (so you won't waste time studying) either in Rio by the beach or maybe somewhere in the Netherlands. Profit. You'll also save like a 150 grand to invest. Actually, ditch the school.

Dumb people are often hotter and have way more fun. I cringe a little bit whenever people describe b-school as the 2 best years of their lives. WTF are you doing with the rest of your lives then?

8/29/12

BTW, that Tyra Banks Owner/President program kills the MBA - you must be a real life baller just to enter it - not a promising kid, but already a winner. Maybe Brady should obsess about that.

So I actually just emailed this to my buddy at HBS who is int he Class of 2014. His response was:

"haha...

but ya, we can pretty much go wherever we want

we have plans to go anywehre in the world

and we've been going out almost every night... there are 900 hundred people here

it's pretty crazy"

Basically I'm guessing the original posters buddy is legit but is exaggerating thing a bit. I mean have any of you guys ever actually hung out with Harvard people? They aren't exactly a bunch of Tucker Max's. All the HBS guys I know (and I used to work at a firm full of them) don't exacdtly have mad game or even spouses/gf's who I would call attractive so I doubt the crazy hooking up part.

Yeah, it's possible he was exaggerating a bit, but i don't doubt that he was being truthful about his experience thus far. The guy is not a liar, and he's pretty low-key, so even i was a bit surprised at the tone of his e-mail because he seemed genuinely pumped up. As I said, i'm happy for him since he busted his butt off all his life and totally deserves this.

So I actually just emailed this to my buddy at HBS who is int he Class of 2014. His response was:

"haha...

i donno about the hooking up part,

but ya, we can pretty much go wherever we want

we have plans to go anywehre in the world

and we've been going out almost every night... there are 900 hundred people here

it's pretty crazy"

Basically I'm guessing the original posters buddy is legit but is exaggerating thing a bit. I mean have any of you guys ever actually hung out with Harvard people? They aren't exactly a bunch of Tucker Max's. All the HBS guys I know (and I used to work at a firm full of them) don't exacdtly have mad game or even spouses/gf's who I would call attractive so I doubt the crazy hooking up part.

I'm sure the 'everyone is hooking up' part is exaggerated. If you re-read what Brady posted, the guy says everyone is hooking up but that he has his eye on a couple of girls. I know my friends would have been like, "I fucked this chick that has some fat titties." then I would ask if she was hot and they would say, "Dude her tits were huge and I came on her face...hope her husband doesn't find out." and they would never answer the question because she wasn't hot and they were drunk and all they saw was a pair of tits to snuggle up to after blowing a load.

The fact the guy isn't hooking up himself is a red flag that not everyone is fucking like rabbits. I'm more inclined to think the vast majority of the guys are pretty much like Tzeentch pointed out...socially awkward. They probably assume everyone else is hooking up and that they are the only ones keeping an eye on a couple of prospects when, in fact, everyone has a few prospects and they end most night by moisturizing their penises alone in the bathroom with their roommate's body lotion.

And I'm sure plenty of hooking up goes on. I've known too many girls that are vacation bi-polar who turn into complete sluts when not in their home zip code. It's like their rules cease to existent when they are away from home.

With all that said, I do know a guy that graduated from Wharton in '10 and he is one sought after SOB in my neck of the woods. Before I actually knew him I overheard girls talking about him being one of the most eligible bachelors and that he went to Wharton...stuff like that. I just assumed the dude was probably a dick. Then I met him. Good looking guy, great personality and down to earth so I get the likability from the ladies.. I didn't know him before b-school so I can't say for sure what he was like, but he did UG at UVA, so I think it's reasonable to assume that he wasn't much different then.

The point being, bschool isn't likely to change your social abilities/inabilities a great deal and while some of those girls knew about Wharton being a great school, which added to his 'eligibility', I would certainly guarantee that none of them know why it's a great school, just that it supports their assumption he's a good catch. Anyways, he's dated, maybe fucked (I really don't know), just about every hot chick I've met in Atlanta but ultimately he's the one closing the deal, not his diploma.

No idea why you assume guys at HBS or b-schools in general are more socially awkward than the general population. Seems based on the faulty assumption that there is somehow an inverse relationship between social skills and intelligence/accomplishments. I did not ask my friend for intimate details since that's none of my business. I have to take his word that he and his classmates are getting a lot of attention from girls in boston and that the social scene is quite robust.

I agree with most of what you wrote in the latter part. A school by itself is NOT going to get you chicks. But i think in a lot of cases, a prestigious school-and the trappings that come with it-do lead to more confidence, which in turn makes you more attractive to women. All else being equal, for a guy, going to a place like HBS is the equivalent to a woman going up from a 5 to a 8 on the looks scale.

Being at b school now, there is going out every night, mostly because you know so many people (like hundreds) stuck in a small place that it's very easy to find 10-20 at the nearest bar(s) in any given night. There is also the never ending FOMO. Same applies to hooking up, etc. Are all of them hooking up? No. But you need only 3 to make a good story.

2/3 of the kids at target schools are nerds who were sheltered by their parents until they came to college.

now they think they're cool cause they finally get to 'rage' hard by nursing shit beers at frat houses all night and get with ugly girls.

then there's kids like Brady who never even did that in college.

Brady, this is something that I don't understand. Your buddy is going to HBS, not paying for the Yankees. I don't get how going to HBS makes girls swoon over. Although it is quite an accomplishment, most girls from my experience just want guys who are fun to be around/give them an emotional connection.
Also in NYC, going to HBS seems like less of an important quality in terms of dating (much like working on Wall street, to all the college monkeys reading this!!!), given the amount of young, good looking, rich guys in the city.

I assuming either he is attracting women who want to settle down ( which is highly unlikely given that these girls are in there early/mid 20's living in NYC), or going to HBS has made him extremely confident (the more plausible scenario).

Sure, a lot of it is due to increased confidence but also being in a huge college town where HBS students are at the top of the food chain. I'm NOT saying that HBS alone will result in you getting chicks. But it helps a ton since a lot of girls past college start looking at how successful a man is, his future potential, etc. And very few social signals scream "alpha male, future leader" more than HBS.

This blog post by a HBS alum actually summarizes this pretty accurately. I've pasted the relevant portion.
http://www.asktheharvardmba.com/2008/06/29/what-is...

"One thing that HBS does have in common with college is the fierce search for romantic companionship.

Thanks to the 2:1 gender ratio, female MBA students (the heterosexual ones at least) find themselves in a near-ideal dating environment, surrounded by accomplished, socially successful, high-earning-potential men. A large number of my female classmates, far larger in proportion than my college contemporaries, end up marrying classmates.

But don't feel bad for the poor male MBA students. In the Boston area, Harvard MBAs are considered the best possible catch for young women, and the so-called Harvard effect holds sway over the rest of the world as well. Trading on the HBS aura is known as "dropping the H-bomb," and the HBSer on the prowl will find it an effective weapon on anyone from cocktail waitresses to Wellesley students to MBAs of lesser schools.

For example, early in the school year, the Wellesley girls actually put invitations to parties in the mailboxes of EVERY male HBS first-year. The invitations include complimentary limo service to bring you to the campus in case you don't have a car. I kid you not."

Wow. I just read through this entire thread while eating ben&jerry ice cream and absolutely loved it. WSO at its best.

Not to further add fire to this, but i just talked to a college friend who is also HBS 2014, and he said similar things as the OP's friend, albeit in a much more restrained tone. As a matter of fact, him and his classmates are going to the hamptons this weekend to party at surf lodge, some sort of exclusive hamptons club. They're meeting up with vanderbilt and uva sorority girls to party. So yeah, it definitely seems like a lot of fun.

Lol. I sent you a PM. I wonder if we know the same people. My HBS buddy who wrote me the original e-mail is also going to hamptons this weekend with some of his classmates. They're hanging out with vandy girls who recently graduated from college and are working in NYC in pr/advertising/marketing. My friend is pretty overwhelmed with how much attention he's getting from girls since when we would go out in chicago, he got zero attention.

WOW!!!! Dude suddenly got game now. How powerful.

You do know you could go out right now and score hotter chicks than your friend if you don't act like a huge weirdo, right? And, if you need confidence, hit the gym. It will give you more attention than the MBA, but its cheaper and you'll be around hot girls instead of ugly nerds. Heck, plenty of guys just lie to get laid and most use better stuff than "I'm an MBA student" for that. Buy a boat or something...

But seriously, get help

I work out everyday, and i'm pretty sure i'm in better shape than 99% of the people on WSO. I also went out a lot when i was younger, probably have been to every club/lounge in chicago worth going to. But I'm looking for something very different now, an experience that just being in chicago won't give me. However, you and many others on here simply don't get it.

Call me crazy, but I feel like it's a lot more enjoyable to just go out with friends on weekends than pay $200K to do it. And, when you really think about it, chances are that if you can get into an "M7" business school, you'll be working for a while afterwards to pay off your debt and make it back to where you were before you went, especially if you've been smart with your money, lived reasonably frugally, and had a decent job (which you almost certainly did if you got into one of those schools in the first place.)

I don't think you're trolling brother, I just think you're delusional if you think you've walked the preftigious path. Once you start trying to compare preftige, there is no end - what you think is preftige is just prestige to someone else. Think Wharton undergrad is preftigious? No brother, if you weren't in M&T/Huntsman programs, it's not preftigious, just prestigious. Think just going to HBS is preftigious? No brother, if you weren't a Baker Scholar, it's not preftigious, just prestigious.

You may think it's all a joke, but all that reflects is that you fell of the preftigious path a long time ago.
Ask the CS TMT kid to rank Eton Park, Oaktree, Och-Ziff, Sankaty, and TPG OP, and he'll say "Are you serious? Anyone would be lucky to work at any of those funds."

Ask the GS TMT analyst to rank them, and he'll give you a stone cold ranking from favourite to least favoured as well as legitimate reasons why. That is the difference between prestigious and preftigious.

Well , if class participation determines the majority of your grade , you very well can't can you? So when the hell exactly does the partying happen.
I mean don't get me wrong - I managed to get my fun in in UG. But that was mainly because I did Psets well , and because I had built up great GPA first 2 years giving me a margin of safety. So , if these kids are having trouble with the pace , who the hell exactly socializes?

Campus is utterly ridiculous. There's some 18 year old college freshman tooling around in a '12 Lotus.

I am waiting to pull up next to him at some red light and rev the engine. My $4K Honda CBR will beat his $200K car to any speed short of 150, hopefully to much laughter from the other middle-class folks.

I don't know why anyone would think these campuses are good or healthy or normal places to spend four years. My kids will be getting a rusty honda and go to a state school with good academics for undergrad. They need to see what "normal" is, and just how rich they really are.

This is extremely true. As someone from "humble beginnings" who went to a top university with a lot of rich people, it was very bizarre to see exactly how wealthy some people were -- and the student body where I went (possibly your favorite university on earth, IP) isn't nearly as affluent as the student body at Harvard or Yale for example.

"Oh, what are you doing over Christmas Break? I'm going to the French Alps..."; Me: "Nice...I'll be back at home working part-time at the grocery store I was at before college."

Not saying that's good or bad, just observing the fact that getting caught up in that environment is weird because it's far from the reality that faces the overwhelming majority of people in this country (let alone on earth).

I don't think Brady had sex enough in college...

9/6/12

Brady reminds me of a friend of mine. First met him final year at Oxford, when I was briefly at Berkeley over the summer. He was there for a summer course too. Nice guy, fun to hang with and his father is pretty rich. Kept in touch with him until we both were at law school again together. Here I found out the extent of his problems. Long story short, he has been collating degrees and diplomas all in the hopes of meeting the right woman. By my count he has 4 degrees now, headed for a fifth (sixth actually its a combined degree) at Cambridge this year and countless other summer programs. All in the hope of meeting the ideal woman. Which he has intimated to me a number of times. Such a sad case. He's throwing money, and wasting a precious commodity in time all in the search of some fantasy girl, he's built up in his mind that he absolutely has no hope of matching up against. I dont actually talk much to him anymore (aside from occasional Facebook connections) but the more Brady pieces his life together on here for us to read, and frankly mock, the more he reminded me of my friend. And Brady, he was pretty overweight too. Think about it, by my count he's wasted 7 years, hasnt worked a day in his life, all to 'slay some girls'. Granted some distinctions, but quite a few parallels too. He's 27 now.

He's Asian too. Absolute truth here, not a shred of fiction. Just thought I'd share it. My offer is still open. If you're in Boston.

From my interaction with Brady, he seems like a good dude, perhaps a little misguided but we all have our dreams. Good luck to him if he manages to get into HBS but its not the end all. And 'slaying women' at 28 loses its lure when its something more substantial you're after as I am certain Brady is searching for. Nothing wrong with that.

And for what its worth, any HBS 'bro', I've met thus far are real down-to-earth, mature, and driven people. Surprised if 'slaying women' is their agenda. The few women I've seen have been decidedly average.

I don't think Brady for one second believes he can get into HBS. I'm sure he's tried several times already, and it doesn't seem like he got into any of his M7 choices either or we would have heard about it.
