Ladies and Gentlemen: your Cross-Enterprise Leaders

Ivey Girl #1: This is so, like, pathetic. There are hardly any alumni here!
Ivey Girl #2: I know, we’re Ivey! We are, like, better than everyone else, so there’s no excuse. This is what we do... we attend parties and functions.

-- Ivey Homecoming, overheard by Chad

Ivey is clearly better than every other faculty.

No... really. That's not sarcasm.

It's actually been shown than Schulich Meds are superior to Ivey students.

This whole Ivey issue is getting old real fast.

It doesn't matter if Ivey students are smarter than the rest. Everybody hates them and the only form of social contact they have is masturbating each others egos.

Ivey students have more business aptitude than other students. Med students have more scientific aptitude. Don't call your proctologist dumb when he's got his finger up your ass, or your investment banker dumb when he's got access to your bank account.

Funny story... at the HBA Opening Ceremony, the Dean of Ivey said:

"Ivey does not make mistakes."

I shit you not, I heard it with my own ears. If I wasn't so lazy, I probably would've submitted it to OaW.

Anyways, whatever... take it from an insider. There are definately some douchebags at Ivey. But they're in the (loud, vocal) minority. Most of us aren't pretentious assholes and are actually rather pleasent people.

But hey, who am I to get in the way of some harmless faculty-bashing fun?

Seriously, all the Ivey hate is getting ridiculous. You go to WESTERN, a university famous for its philanthropy, agrarian lifestyle and dedication to grassroots left-wing movements. Maybe the asshole per class ratio is a little higher at Ivey. Fair enough. But the same idiots who bitch about "Iveytude" like to turn around and mock those 'poor liberal arts majors'...because obviously every science kid ends up in medical school and every engineering kid will work for NASA/build the next Eiffel Tower. The hypocrisy is pathetic.

Before you go and hate on 'pretentious' Ivey students, maybe you should actually go talk to some of those HBAs. We might prefer to dress a little nicer and most of us were on the Dean's List two years in a row, but that doesn't automatically mean we're douchebags.

True. However, that is certainly preferrable to being a bunch of Communists and assorted other useful idiots and fellow travellers, like the artsies and "social scientists"...

9:44 - if you're referring to 6:23...I believe that's what we call sarcasm.

1:46 and 6:23 Who are these D-bags? Agrarian lifestyle??? This isn't Guelph, and we aren't Aggies (agriculture students, FYI)... Clearly, another example of Ivey not making any mistakes...

Before you hate on Social Scientists, and other "assorted left-wing types," you might want to consider that economics is a social science, and is studied by historians... their writing makes your "me first" and "money, money, money" readings palatable... and furthermore, when your trophy wife/bimbo western girl leaves you, you may just end up seeing a psychologist... "I had everything, money, power, expensive sports car, envy-inspiring condo, and a blonde airhead.... and now it seems so meaningless [cries inconsolably].

You might dress better??? Says who? Try changing a flat tire in your business suits, then when you can't figure it out, try waling throught the slush to the garage in your wingtip loafers... Some of us actually chose to wear practical clothing like jeans because its comfortable after staying up all night studying.

Have fun selling your soul for a BMW and a cubicle, dick!

5:23. Did you really think I was being serious when I referred to Western as having an "agrarian lifestyle"? Think a little harder, social 'scientist'. Western's stereotype = rich people from Toronto whose biggest problem is which Uggs to buy and in what colour. Aka "why would I donate to Katrina when I need to buy some Dior sunglasses?" Apparently, people have problems deciphering sarcasm on the internet.

You also clearly don't know anyone who goes to Ivey. We wear jeans. ALL THE TIME. After getting less than 5 hours of sleep a night (thanks to several hours/night doing cases) and rushing to 8:10 classes every morning, no one is stupid enough to want to wear a suit. Unless they have an interview that day.

Before crying that we hate on social scientists, let me clarify something. No Ivey student seriously thinks that social sciences are irrelevant. I have a lot of respect for social sciences, and find them interesting/important. What I am sick of, personally, is your attitude towards people that opted to study business. Big fucking deal. So I decided NOT to study psychology or stay in the social science faculty...does that mean I'm "selling [my] soul"? No.

My point is that I'm sick of people assuming I'm a "dick" because I decided to study what I enjoy (by the way, I'm a FEMALE). Quit being a judgmental asshole and grow up.

I go to Ivey, but the last couple years I was in political science and had a good time there, so I definately don't "look down" on the social sciences.

And no, a very widespread misconception is that Ivey students walk around in suits all day. This is an utter lie. As 6:38 pointed out, the only time we wear suits is if we have an interview or a "mandatory event" where suits are required. Otherwise, everyone dresses the same as every other faculty at Western.

I'd be willing to bet that these quotes were fabricated by the author himself in order to stir up some ivey-hate. It worked apparently. Well done, Chad. Kudos to you for pissing everyone off!

Wow... If everyone's going to go by "Anonymous", then stop taking these comments so personally.

While I do believe that there are decent, level-headed people that go to / are going to go to Ivey, it's hard to say that certain people don't immediately spring to mind when this quote is read. There are assholes in every faculty, and face it, this preconception of Ivey didn't materialize overnight. You guys went in knowing how a lot of people felt, so quite frankly, complaining about it isn't really going to resolve anything.

The Dean's speech about not making mistakes is not her invention. I heard Larry Tapp saying the same thing at my MBA orientation in 2001. It sure as hell wasn't true that year, and I suspect that this has not changed.

Ivey does have some pretty clever people. It also has a ton of wankers too (but these were mostly Science/Eng-types in undergrad). We are hated because we demand and receive special treatment (although we pay through the nose for it).

It is too bad that more Alum didn't come out to homecoming. I was there this year, and it was a good time.

sorry guys and girls,
The quote was legitimate. It was funny, and it was not intended to get everyone all worked up.
