I think it's kind of funny that Ivey claims not to be arrogant assholes.. yet they feel the need to make comments about how wonderful they are in a forum that has absolutely nothing to do with Ivey.

EXAMPLE:

Person: "Man, I could really use some cheese right now"
Ivey Retard: "HaHa! Liberal arts suck! Go Ivey! Hahaha!"

1:23 is obviously a turdburgling nog who refuses to acknowledge the greatness that is the Richard Ivey School of Business.

I would pick Medical sciences well over ivey and besides you just need to get above 80% to get in the first place and after taking it for 2 years you eventually end up with an undergraduate business degree which IS not a MBA unlike some people prefer to think.

Idiot, you don't "just" have to get an 80 and you're automatically into Ivey. You have to have a shitload of extracurricular leadership positions/community involvement etc. plus at least an 80 to have a competitive application.

Most people who bash Ivey couldn't get in if their lives depended on it.

1:26... like "volunteering" so you can pad your resume with cushy "jobs" that benefit nobody but yourself?

Ivey Resume:
-directed a community-based monetary assistance program designed to assist urban poor.

Reality:
-dropped a quarter into a guitar case for the street musician on Saturday night after "networking" at 29 Park.
-threw up in an alley after too many Jager-bombs

1:26 this is 6:09,

buddy, I GOT INTO IVEY U IDIOT! The only reason i didnt go was because i got an idea how Ivey was going to be after takin 257..which I agree is one of the most intensive course but boring as hell. Talk to me when u get into MBA because HBA doesnt mean shit all in the real world other than bragging rights (for god knows what) during college. The extracurricular you talk about budd is not looked upon that heavily, you are required to have about 2 years of extracurricular. I know what i am talking about so go and brag to some other poor ignorant soul.

Hmmm, 1:33... you don't go to Huron by any chance do you?

And you wouldn't be more than passingly familiar with the facebook group "I rejected Ivey's offer like Alberta beef"?

Whoa, I'm confused. Do Ivey Grads really think their degree is worth something in the real world. Its another fucking MBA, who cares.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Uh, I'm not an Ivey student, but you guys DO realize that for all your bashing of the HBA degree I recall seeing they make 10-15k more per year on average for starting salary than arts/social science students.

Sure alot of them are douchebags, but give credit where its due... saying that their degree is worthless (at least vis a vis other degrees) is just fucking stupid.

Check out UWO/general placement statistics if you don't beleive me.

I'd take an Ivey degree anyday over a mundane arts/social-sci/science degree.

I don't think they're saying it's worthless. I think they're saying it doesn't make Ivey kids as special as they think they are. It doesn't give them the right to act like stuck-up assholes, and to be a fair, a lot don't. They're just not as obnoxious about it, so we forget about them.

"I don't think they're saying it's worthless."

Reread the comments by 1:33 and 8:41 where they talk about how an HBA degree "means shit in the real world"... I'm speaking to that obviously incorrect claim more so than trying to deny that some Ivey students act like asshats.

Making over 15k more a year than most other university grads is obviously not "meaning shit in the real world". The fact of the matter is, if you to professional school, in most cases you will reap the benefit of that investment by making hundreds of thousands of dollars more over your lifetime... just as if you get any sort of university degree, you're likely to make a lot more over your lifetime than a HS drop-out.

The two idiots who are trying to say that an HBA "means shit" are probably insecure tools pursuing an ACS, er-"BMOS".

And again, no... I don't go to Ivey. I'm in social sci... but I'm happy with my degree choice and can still acknowledge that people who go into professional programs are likely to make more. If you want to bash Ivey on that basis that elitism exists there, fine. But the people trying to deny that an HBA is a lot more valuable than most other degrees are living in denial.

I can put this whole Ivey argument to rest by saying one simple thing: Jesus hates all Ivey students.

The taxes from those profits they "worship" help fund your pathetic, arts-major, wannabe-bohemian lifestyle, you hippie asshat! You could just say "thank you" and leave it at that.

due to federal/provincial cuts, I'd say more of the money for our university comes from us or the excessive amount of student fees the university charges (ie it made 4 million last year on parking tickets alone).
and $5000 is a lot of money for tuition, considering a lot of European countries, like France and Germany, actually give money to their students. none of us are really getting free rides from anyone.

Not that I'm a big fan of Ivey, but liberal arts does, without question, absolutely suck. Liberal arts student = Communist, without exception.

Actually, all grad students get a free ride, in that we are guaranteed support in excess of tuition. Those who have support from an external government agency, such as myself, make out quite nicely... :)

6:28, I take serious exception to your statement about Liberal Arts. I took my undergrad at Huron in Pol/Sci, but this is the first time in my life I have ever been labeled a Communist. Actually, I was one of the biggest free marketers in my Ivey MBA section.

6:31, All grad students do NOT get a free ridge. Ivey students aren't guaranteed S.F.A.

One last point (but bear in my this is the biased view from the perspective of an MBA): there is considerable difference between the HBAs, and the MBAs. I suspect that most people are more pissed about HBAs giving attitude, than the MBAs.

I suggest 2 reasons for this: given the age difference (the average entering age is around 27-29), the MBAs are at a much different stage in life. Many are married and come down with their families (which we refer to as Section V). Even those that are single, tend to interact almost exclusively with other MBAs. Most MBAs have little to no contact with anyone in any other faculty at any time (since I did my undergrad here, and was going through law at the same time, I was the exception). I suspect that very few people here have much interaction with the MBAs.

Perhaps the biggest difference, and something that account for the "Ivey Attitude" is that the HBAs have not yet failed. All of the MBAs require significant work (and life) experience. We have all been out in the real world, worked for companies, and fucked up a few times. There is nothing like stepping on your dick to help reign in the hubris.

On the other hand the HBAs are only 2 years outta HS, where they were always number 1, or 2 in their class, they came to Western, spent 2 years preparing to get into Ivey and were again getting top marks. They are used to having everything go their way. Since they have not yet really failed at anything, they don't think that they ever will, and this feeds some of those Ivey-eq traits that the rest of this Uni come to know and love.

Anyways, take that insight for what it's worth.

Out of all my (many) years at this great University, the best year was first year MBA, hands down.

Mein Gott, I miss Western!

Hey 6:28!

I've used my liberal arts English degree to get a job writing advertising copy for Shaw, Direct Energy, CP Rail and other prominent communist-front organizations.

"What, advertising ISN'T an activity opposed to the interests of the heteronormative, corpo-patriarchal superstructure that makes slaves of us all? Advertising ASSISTS in their campaign?!?!!?!"

Oh man, fuck! What have I done? Marx is gonna be so pissed when he finds out. I've fucked up everything - since liberal arts majors are obviously, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, communists and all.

Dumbass.
