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.

    What the hell is black october?

  • JDawg's picture

    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.

    Guys, relax. H Bomb is Harvard's sex magazine. I'm sure all the emailer was referring to was the satisfaction of having the opportunity to read good literature.

    Telling girls you are bisexual is less radical and more credible, and probably as effective.

    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?

    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?

    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?
