If we're talking just straight schools. Youtube's chief of staff went to Harvard UG, Rhode Scholar afterwards, and then graduated from Harvard JD/MBA. I think Mitt Romney did something similar and couple people at Wachell got joint JDS/MBAs. What's the best you've seen?

Know of a person that did their undergrad and a JD/MBA all at Harvard and did a master's at Oxford...all with honors. Can't be beaten.

Edit: just read the YouTube chief of staff post. Looks like it's a tie.

Larry Summers matriculated at MIT when he was 16, got his PhD at Harvard, and was a tenured professor at Harvard by 28. Hard to be more "academic" than that.

She was very early in her career and I'm sure will do a PhD/MD at another top school. In any event, being the sole valedictorian at what is probably the most competitive high school in the country is no easy accomplishment.

I had a prof who was MIT UG for Electrical Engineering, Wharton MBA, PhD at Harvard. Unsurprisingly, he was not a good teacher.

Had a professor who went to Princeton at 16, became a Rhodes Scholar, then went to Harvard Law where he was President of the Harvard Law Review.

He now has his own PE shop.

CEO of a company that I co-founded...he's actually a couple of rungs down. I was primarily making a point that academic pedigree is not the same thing as career success. He's actually awesome and very successful...still not the boss though.

Unfortunately I dont remember the name of this guy, but he was a guest speaker at an AI conference I went to in Sillicon Valley. He did a PhD at Stanford and Harvard simultaneously. He would commute coast to coast on a weekly basis.

A friend of mine graduated from Harvard in 3 years with both an AB and SM in Applied Mathematics (with honours). He's currently doing a joint MBA/MA in Education at Stanford and is off to Oxford in the Fall as a Rhodes Scholar to do his DPhil. He also worked as an analyst at a top New York hedge fund and is the CEO of a company valued at about USD 150m. He's currently only 23 and undoubtedly the most impressive person I've ever met.
