Last night I met a recent HBS alum through a mutual friend. We were just relaxing at a bar and talked about a bunch of stuff. I of course asked him about his experiences at HBS and his thoughts on it. Some choice quotes from that conversation:
"HBS completely transformed my life. Anyone who gets in has to go."
"My classmates were easily the most impressive and interesting group of people I've met."
"It's shallow, but girls absolutely love HBS guys. My confidence went through the roof while I was there."
"I didn't really learn anything at HBS, aside from knowing how to hold my liquor, knowing the best hotels to stay at, and just being a douchebag in general."
He also told a lot of stories about his experiences at HBS, which were quite amazing. I think a lot of this applies to other top b-schools as well. Without a doubt, b-school is the best 2 years of one's life.
