    The "Two Years of Fun" video was really well done. Outside of the live shows, I think this is probably the coolest Follies video I've seen...

    Wow. Beautiful video. This is the first time I have seen this one.

    I don't get the "uva sorority houses" one. Do wharton MBA guys go out to UVA for parties? Not surprised if they do since girls LOVE Wharton guys.

    The search before the "uva sorority houses" was for "hotel rooms near foxfields"...

    Ok, that makes sense. UVA undergrad has so many hot girls from good upbringing. And I'm sure HBS or Wharton guys KILL it with those ladies. Sick life. That alone would make it worth $150K for me.

    Relax. I was being somewhat facetious. My point is that MBA is a ton of fun, and girls are attracted to guys at top MBA programs.

    No, you weren't. Your mental clinging, absurd compulsion, utter infatuation with all things M7 and your complete boner for HBS has made you something of a laughingstock on this site for months. I used to defend you, then I was quiet, then I felt sad for you, and now it's just grown altogether irksome.

    You equate an MBA with ultimate accomplishment. It defines you. You emit this aura that you will die a broken man if you fail to attend a school of the caliber you aspire to reach. You believe it is the definitive key to a successful life: stellar, rewarding, lucrative career ... women tripping over themselves to reach you ... destination vacations ... vibrant party scene ... the wealth of the world at your fingertips.

    It is revolting. Do some serious soul-searching. Grow a pair, and don't try to laugh it off as being "somewhat facetious" when months of posting history proves how false that statement is. An MBA does not define you. It gives you access to better opportunities than you might have had beforehand or without it, but it does not change who you were before you entered it. A socially backwards, hapless wimp of a man who gets admitted to HBS does not magically transform into a panty-dropping, muscular, affable stud clad in a $3,000 bespoke suit ready to shoot LBO lasers out of his elbows. The MBA does nothing except provide a platform for successful people who already possess the innate traits that allow them to be successful to enjoy even more success.

    Wake up, please. I pray for you.

    Your overreaction and self-righteousness are amusing. Your tirade does not deserve a lengthy response. I will say though that I do NOT think that a degree defines me. I do badly want to go to a M7 for valid professional and personal reasons, which I articulated in previous posts. I cannot help it if you take some posts out of context and arrive at wild conclusions about my inner psychology. In any case though, thanks, Dr. Phil.

    You have a serious case of OCD.

    Come up to Ellenville and go hang gliding.

    Forget about bschool for now. Good things come to people who aren't looking for them.

    Just really quickly - how exactly is an MBA the epitome of success? Not to knock the act of getting an MBA or anyone who has an MBA, but I've always seen the MBA as something you get if you've hit a wall in your career progression. If that description is insulting to anyone, please do explain it better for me. Other than spending two years hiding from the economy and dicking around with like-minded individuals, I don't see the value. Women don't care if you're from Wharton (trust me, I know) and it's hilarious to think that they would.

    It's not any sort of epitome of success. I want it for a broader based exposure to business , both financial and strategic. Also , in many professions (P/E for one) , there's a natural wall between pre and post MBA roles.
    However , when I look at the multitude of top Hedge Fund managers who have MBAs , I can't help but notice that either the education or the network do help you along the road in some way.

    It's not the epitome of success per se. And there are plenty of successful people who don't have MBAs. But certain industries like consulting and PE, require an MBA for career progression (of course there are always a few exceptions). More importantly though, a top MBA just opens a lot of doors with its network and general exposure to a lot of industries/firms. It provides you access to companies you want to work at; once you get the interview, it's totally up to you of course. For a lot of people, including myself, that access alone is worth the opportunity cost. Others may arrive at a very different conclusion.

    My understanding, one that most people seem to agree with but I could be wrong, is that what you actually learn in business school is more or less worthless. The "network" and the "exit opps" are where the main value lies in spending two years in business school. Assuming that's true, I find it very hard to see why companies would require an MBA or value it significantly more than someone who spent those two years working in the industry. To be honest, if I'm a megafund, I'd much rather hire someone who worked 4 years at a MM PE fund than someone who spent 2 years at a MM PE and 2 years at HBS. Fair, or am I missing something?

    I agree with the first part of your statement, that the primary value of an MBA lies in the network and exit opps, not the actual course material. This is mostly due to the fact that an MBA, unlike a Phd, MD, or a JD, is NOT required to "practice" business. You can still learn a lot academically, especially at an intense finance school like wharton/booth/sloan. But yes, it's the access to top companies and the lifelong network that you're basically paying for. Finally, a top MBA, much like elite colleges, acts as a signaling mechanism to potential employers that you've passed the gauntlet and that you possess the qualities needed to be a good employee. Fair or not, the recruiters at desirable companies have to a large extent delegated the hiring process to admissions officers.

    As I told IP so many times, there's a very good reason why smart talented people bust their butts off and give up a lot to attend a top b-school. If its value was really that dubious, the market would correct itself. Thus far, these schools are still seeing a lot of applications.

    I am not throwing shots your way. Excuse me if it came off that way. I am trying to point out to you exactly how so many people on this forum perceive you. From not-so-thinly-veiled insults and mocking (HPM et al.) that may or may not be mean-spirited to genuine concern and friendly exhortation (IlliniProgrammer et al.), everyone knows exactly how deep your obsession runs. I am simply trying to wake you up to a world closer to reality.

    Precisely. Why do you think the median age of each matriculating class at the top schools has been creeping lower and lower over the past decade? It's because HBS, GSB, and the like all want to snap up the type of people who would have been massively successful without the degree, stamp them with the b-school brand, and hopefully instill in the person the misguided sense that what success does come their way is in fact a result of the MBA and all its trappings (network, boosted career potential, recruiting opportunities, etc.). Why? That equals a better pedigree for the school, better alumni donations, and a better public image.

    Put 'accepted at Wharton' on your resume even if you go somewhere else. I can't tell you where to go, only you can decide that. I can tell you that schools (especially business schools) are essentially sorting mechanisms.

    Of course, extraordinary people come from many places, but a much higher percentage come from the best schools. This is the only reason recruiters focus more on Harvard or Wharton instead of some other schools, not because you learn more. So, if you put Wharton on your resume coming out of business school (whether you went there or not), it should help in initial recruiting. If you end up at KKR, McKinsey, Goldman, or whatever; these are also sorting mechanisms and people will assume you were smart even though you can't mention Wharton acceptance later on without sounding like an extreme d-bag. Carnegie Mellon is a great school; Wharton is a great school. You are lucky to have this choice. My opinion is that you will do well either way, so don't stress.

    By the way, sweat and cash are the only ways to get equity. Some jobs aren't as sweaty, but technically...

    Good luck.

    I hope you're trolling here because if not, this is one of the most idiotic things I've read in the history of WSO.

    Yeah, great advice. The OP should tell people he got into wharton even though he went to a school that is barely in the top 20. While we're at it, we should all tell companies during interviews that we actually got into harvard but chose to attend our institutions for other reasons. I'm sure the line, "accepted but turned down Harvard Business" will really impress the top firms!

    You may think it's crazy, but if a high school student told me he was accepted to Cal Tech, MIT, Harvard, Princeton, etc.; I would interview him and, if I liked him, hire him without a colege degree. (That has never happened to me, by the way). He wouldn't have gotten much out of college anyway.

    He's proven he's elite...who cares if he actually gets the degree? Pretty much the same thing here. The OP might just skip the MBA altogether and show employers his acceptance letters. It won't work at the big firms, most likely, but may work at more entrepreneurial firms (where you can make more money anyway). That would be very efficient, unless he actually needs to learn something/network.

    If the OP gets the first job at a great firm, he won't ever need to mention anything about Whaton, because nobody will care anymore. Once again, he will have proven himself.

    You totally missed the whole point of an elite college or MBA. The notion that a smart kid would not have gotten much out of college at a place like harvard/mit/princeton, etc., is completely absurd. He many not have increased his IQ, but he would have learned a tremendous ton, both from his professors but more importantly his fellow talented classmates. School is about the entire experience; it's more than just reading books and taking exams. The friendships, network, extracurricular activities, parties, etc., count for a ton.

    On the professional front, employers use school as a signaling mechanism because they trust the adcom's decisions and appreciate the rigor of these top programs. When a hedge fund sees a MIT cs major with a good gpa, they can assume that the student is hard working, smart, and capable. This is one reason why the whole online college thing will never gain legitimacy. Because anyone can watch those videos, it is essentially worthless in the job market. Sure, the MIT courseware videos are awesome, especially if you want to beef up on math and cs. But don't think for a second that the power of a degree from a prestigious school will ever diminish. If anything, pedigree is now more important than ever before in this country.

    I'm sure the OP likes Tepper. But if I were him, I would break my lease, say goodbye to my new friends at Tepper and get ready for Wharton. He is going to have a blast, meet fascinating people, forge relationships with the future business leaders of the world, and have opportunities that far exceed his expectations.

    Sure, but at a 7% + CPI rate of return over 50 years at $250K tuition + $50K/year foregone savings from work, that adds up to $450K NPV and $13 million at retirement.

    I am a bit of a philistine, but I believe that it's not what you know, it's not who you know- it's what you save that makes you rich.

    My two best friends are from Rutgers and UIUC. One of them is a doctor who speaks seven languages without an accent and lives in Jersey City. The other can pull the plot to good fantasy novels out of his imagination on the spot. If you're smart, you'll find brilliant people everywhere and make good friends with them. The KEY to happiness in life is free time and being a nice person. Saving $450K at 18 means years and years of not needing to work.

    I would just submit that if your only posts are going to be Wharton and HBS knob slobbery than you should be held to a similar standard but you're right, I don't know everything that went into Swagon getting banned.

    What we're seeing on this board is what's happening in the market, writ small. A lot of smart and talented people are giving up a lot to attend a top school, like Brady says. And a lot of smart and talented people are saying, "Fuck that; you guys are morons."

    Ok, that makes sense. UVA undergrad has so many hot girls from good upbringing. And I'm sure HBS or Wharton guys KILL it with those ladies. Sick life. That alone would make it worth $150K for me.

    Brady, this is totally your video...

    OP, time for a reality check. everyone who is at Ross or Anderson surely wishes they can trade spots with a guy at HBS. but they can't. if thousands of people are willing to accept a lower school, why can't you? we can expand this to the M7. every non-M7 MBA wishes they can trade up.

    maybe your application has some huge holes that you aren't going to fill up any time soon. app pools get very competitive during shit economies, as you surely know. you have all the disadvantages working against you right now and unless you just have a habit of blowing interviews despite your 4.0 GPA and perfect GMAT, it's time to look in the mirror and tell yourself the truth: a top MBA is not in the cards.

    If you're lusting after an MBA program mostly to party hard and go on trips and get girls to drool over you you're just throwing piles of money down the toilet, then flushing a few times to make sure it's all gone in the drain. There are legitimate reasons to pursue an MBA, but if fun is your primary motivator, you can certainly do that w/o spending 250k (or whatever the running total is, looks like we're at 450k now).
