The REAL REASON why Columbia has less recruits than Harvard. GOOD STUFF HERE.IB
Alright everyone.... reading these comments on this major Columbia blog surprised me. This is why CU doesn't have good rep on Wall St. as compared to HYP, Wharton, and sometimes even Cornell.
If you have 10-20 minutes to spare (it'll take you that long to read), go here now:
Basically their Class of 2010 is graduating and every year they do "Senior Wisdoms"...surveys to interesting seniors of interest. This kid Mike (subject of the survey) said he would be graduating then doing nothing and have no plans other than to make films.
Someone started this whole 100-comment argument by saying that the admins need to pick more accomplished guys to survey, and not this "kid with no ambitions or future". What happened next was MAJOR BASHING of investment banking kids, prelaw kids, pre-med kids, engineering kids, biology kids, and basically anyone who has an ounce of ambition.
WHY AM I POSTING THIS? Could you ever have imagined that an Ivy League school would have SO MANY guys who just want to slack off their whole lives? I had NO IDEA so many of Columbia's students never cared about landing a job after college. After reading that page, I wouldnt be surprised if only 10 guys APPLY to ibanking/law/medicine from the entire Columbia University!
