Fuck, the posts are unfunny lately. Who's screening these things? Some lame Ivey suit-in-training I guess.
You can find a 10 dollar hooker at Ivey.
Ten dollars is a little overpriced for an Ivey hooker, isn't it?
It is no wonder that Ivey hookers errr, students always wear suits, in order to cover up all those unsightly rashes.
^ Fast fact: the belief that Ivey students go to class in suits is incorrect. HBAs dress the same as everyone else.The more you know!
OK, then who are the doucchebags always hanging around Ivey in suits? MBAs?
your mom went to ivey and shes a ten dollar hooker
7 posts of people complaining about Ivey, and only one comment of Ivey defending itself. Get the hint, folks. No one cares that you hate Ivey. Ivey doesn't even care that you hate Ivey. give it up. Yours, trulya non-ivey student
5:26...it just implies ivey students don't have a good defence
6:25: I know, the defence of Ivey is terrible. I proposed that they build a moat and some turrets, but they couldn't fit it into the budget this year. Sincerely,Somebody who is worried about the lack of defense
6:25pm. or it could be the fact that IVEY students have more important things to do than come on this website and defend themselves? maybe?
Well what are they doing, then? Because clearly they're not learning shit. I live with an ivey student and he is the most useless person on the planet. Can't even make pasta on the stove.So, I guess that the "more important" stuff that ivey peeps do is masturbation.
*eyes rolling* Clearly he failed his Business and Pasta class. Who the fuck cares? You're going to be cooking his pasta for him someday anyway.
^ LOL! Burn of the week.Ivey students work as hard, and usually harder, than every other faculty on campus.15 cases a week + readings + career management events + section socials? You bet we work our asses off... which is why, like it or not, most of the graduates from other faculties will be taking orders from Ivey students sooner or later.
No come on guys, I'm sure the kids learning about post-feminist literary analysis and the effect of neo-colonialism on contemporary African interpretive dance will surely make far more money than the people who are learning about such stupid things as business or law or engineering.
Nice, 1:50... nice.
you guys all suck. Give the ivey issue a rest.
I'll give the Ivey issue a rest at the same time I give your mom a rest.Which is never.
haha, 1:35, you're right, he is a fool. Hell other Ivey students tell me their classes are useless. You're paying for a piece of paper. If you can live with that, all the power to you. Oh, and your cases are easy. try my 40 hour a week + 60 of homework chem eng semester. Then shut the fuck up.
2:33 - you're talking out your ass when you say Ivey cases are "easy". Dumb fuck... try doing management science cases, or financial modelling cases, then you'll be in a position to say that Ivey cases are easy, instead of basing your response on chickenshit Bus020 material.The hate against Ivey comes from the fact that people bash Ivey to hide their own insecurity about the fact they know deep down that their degrees are far less valuable in the job market.IVEY U ECKBAR!
oh I'm sorry, I guess there's something besides those HBA courses I took. I have an Ivey Degree, and it is useless. I'd gladly cut the Ivey out of my Engineering/Ivey degree and get a year of my life back.
LOL Ivey degrees are more valuable than an engineering degree? Gimme a fucking break. "OMG we have a 48 hour report! OMG help us save us"Pussies. Come to engineering and we'll show you what real work is. 2:33 isn't exaggerating.
HBA/electrical engineering concurrent 2008 here... I'm the dissenting opinion. I think the amount of work I did at both Ivey and in eng was about the same, if not Ivey being more intense.I smell Ivey fakers above.
wow! The hatred is insane. Why do people really care how useful or useless an ivey degree is? Or how easy or hard it is? This fight is insanity.
I think a lot of the Ivey hate comes from Ivey self-love. I don't think anybody really doubts that it is a lot of work at Ivey. We (or really, I) just think that they are all pompous assholes while I, on the other hand, am just a regular asshole.
Has ANYONE here considered the idea that people could get a degree for reasons other than the salary?
I did an engineering degree before I started Ivey, and Ivey is harder. In eng, you don't actually have to do anything until exam time; in Ivey, you have to be on every day. It's exhausting. As for the subject matter, the finance courses I've had to take are at least as hard as any thermo or numerical methods class I had to take in undergrad. Harder, even, because you can't just memorize a way to the right answer - you actually need to exercise judgment. I'm not saying that one degree is better than the other, but if you think you can characterize the Ivey program as easy, you're kidding yourself.
eng exams aren't so bad, it's the 8 assignments a week. Maybe mechanical engineering (which has very easy thermo) can just be memorized, but I didn't memorize shit for chem. It was all problem solving. And most Ivey cases can be solved with problem solving skills albeit with different background knowledge than engineering.Basically, I concede the non-easiness of Ivey. But I think engineering is just as hard. Arts students should go fuck themselves though. Can we agree on that?
^ Yes. Perhaps the engineers and the Ivey students should form an unholy alliance to drive back the hordes of jealous arts students rampaging unchecked through OaW.
Well, I guess Ivey is hard - I dunno, didnt try. And Ivey kids are people, just like us... "not-Ivey"... What I dont like is that 1) they think it s hard and cool to get into Ivey (give me a break, it s EASY to get in..), 2) that their program is sooooooo unique and soooooooo more relevant than other people's.... 3) I hate to see how they defend themselves here - didnt your mommy teach u that calling ur neighbour back a bad word is a silly rude manner? 4) what s up with bragging about the salaries... come on guys, it s bulshit. I mean, it s not like if u dont do anything, after u graduate, u gonna automatically get a job... no, u gotta search. If an excellent student from acs, or whatever they call it now, will apply for the same job and will have nice resume, will be energetic and shit- do u really think the employer would prefer ivey grad just because of IVEY? NO..... do u actually know that people working in the fin industry, say in vancouver, often have never heard of ivey? what the ivey grads usually possess for sure - ambitions... but do u ACTUALLY think u re the only ones who have it? No sweethearts, no....I had many classes with future ivey students... some of them were dumb like hell, others - simply pityfully obsessed with ivey, and some - absolutely brilliant... Dear ivey students, please, dont go to the level of so called"art students" - dont shout back... it only tells others of your own insecurity..With love and respect, non-Ivey student, and non-Art student...p.s. i dunno if art people are stupid.. i d say they are usually... different. but phych kids... those are dumb... i am sorry.... but do u know how many future ivey students take bunches of phych courses to get the necessary grades........ HOHOHOHOHOHOHO - WAY TO GO IVEY :)
^ Dear 8:23,When your post has coherent grammatical structure, proper punctuation and refrains from using "u" as a synonym for "you", I will bother to read it and address any misguided points it's probably trying to make. Until then, eat shit and die.Sincerely,The World
You signed your post "The World"? Clearly, you are a Communist. Go join the ACLU you hippy asshat.
You jerks can attack of Ivey students because we might have taken easy courses at the affiliate colleges, but I hope that will warm your hearts when you are homeless and we are filthy rich.
IVEY is the greatest faculty at Western.That's not sarcasm, either.
9:43: if you are admitting to being a dumbass that took sociology and psych to boost your marks to get into Ivey, then what is stopping all the "homeless" people from doing the same? Listen, my Ivey brother, we need to keep this secret to ourselves.
9:43, when you realize that your life is an empty shell and your trophy wife has left you after you tried finding some meaning in your life by porking your secretary, and your kids hate you for spending more time waxing the Bimmer than playing with them, then you can benefit from all the schlubs who took psych and sociology when you visit a psychologist. you might ask yourself why everyone hates you, and we can tell you its because you went to Ivey. Also, we could recommend you to a great marriage counsellor, or child psychologist, to fix all your mistakes. Just something to talk about at one of your fancy networking functions.
^ The hate runs strong with this one.I'm thinking a psychology major.You do realize that less than 10% of people with psychology majors actually become psychiatrists, right?
12:55, are you aware of the differences between psychologists and psyschiatrists?
^ Yes, I took a couple psych courses my first two years. Psychologists focus on research and theoretical matters, psychiatrists practice.My point still stands.
Hhaha you pathetic Pysch students, try to insult us to make up for your shitty futures. As soon as I graduate from Ivey in the spring, I will be so loaded that I will buy your shiity little apartments and have them torn down.
Sweety, do you want me to buy your apartment right now and tear it down right now? I can... you know... and I am even not psych major... and not even Ivey... I am better. I am what what I want...
12:55. Listen, dipshit: Psych students become psychologists with a PhD in psychology. Psychiatrists go to medical school, then branch off into psychiatry. Ipso facto, less than 10% of psych students become psychiatrists simply because they don't go or get into med school. Maybe you should have paid attention in those classes. I'm sure you are getting great marks in your Ivey program.... the headhunters must be banging down your door.
As a matter-of-fact, yes... I just signed with UBS.And you're now making the argument that all those psychology majors who don't become psychiatrists surely become psychologists? Uh... sure. You really are desperate, aren't you?
P.S. what's with making that anti-Ivey comment at 10:30 on a Saturday night? You must have a pretty awesome social life, my psych-major friend!
I too just aced an interview with RBC, and they offered me a base salary of 47k. How many of my former classmates at Huron -still working on a psych degree- have been offered that type of cash in the last month?
47K is a joke...
6:36: 47k as a STARTING salary? Look up what most fresh university grads make then repeat that comment.
8:16: Look up how much eng students get as fresh university grads and then repeat that comment.
3:30: I had to wait until your mom left my room at the frat house before I could log on... she finds it rude when I type while getting a hummer... and I only write messages when she visits the boys upstairs. I find the chanting during the tag-team to be particularly inspiring to my writing.
4:18AM must be really cool himself. I mean only the coolest kids stay up until 4 to watch high class television. Probabaly the end of the Tyra show where you undoubtedly copy all your appropriately Gay style from.Grow Up and get a life!- Sincerly a successful engineering grad.
A new trend in OaW attacks: using strange posting times (extremely early in the morning or Saturday nights) to smite your rivals.
Dear 5:46, I am sorry, but 1) I am a girl, and 2) I am on exchange in Europe, count the time difference.
^Hahaha only an Ivey student would think that people will believe this Bullshit.
When I first toured the Richard Ivey school of Business during March break last year, I was impressed by what our tour guide told us. Now barely a year later I have reluctantly joined the ranks of Western students who have come to know this school as a dressed up degree mill. It seems that the egotistical(and not exceedingly bright students)have soiled the reputation of what was once rated the top business program in Canada. I doubt that many students attending any of the dozens of higher rated business schools in North America have little time to breath, let along carry on like neanderthals.
^ You lie. Everyone in Ivey loves Ivey.Maybe with the exception of the one or two losers in every section who never says anything and never comes out drinking to the section events.
9:25, no kidding, especially given the fact that my original comment was anti-Ivey :)
Has anyone noticed that mentioning "Ivey" is like saying "President Bush", in that it often the butt of a joke.
When I was but a teenager and still in high school I had a job at McDonalds. Laugh, please. Anyways, I worked with a lady who has her degree in Psychology. So you psych majors and eat it.But don't worry, one of the managers had a degree from Ivey. So you Ivey dipshits can eat it to.So basically it doesn't matter what degree you have - you'll all be taking my order some day.
A couple of years after I graduate from Ivey, I will have enough stacks of money that I can buy my own franchise and laugh at the psych graduates.
I agree, the best thing to do after we get rich after ivey is to buy up half of the T dot.
Give it a break you morons.
^someone is jealous of Ivey. After attending the school for only 5 months, my favourite thing about it, is laughing at envious crybabies.
^ Someone is a retard
^ Somebody wants to suck my Ivey iBanking cock.
^ Somebody isn't very funny.
it doesn't matter what you think you're going to make with your degrees once you've graduated, chances are only a small percentage of you will make a decent living when you first starting out.
I agree, the best thing to do after we get rich after ivey is to buy up half of the T dot.You actually wrote "the T dot"? Really? You're going to go with that? You know it actually would have been quicker to type out "Toronto", with the added bonus that you wouldn't come off sounding like a brainless shitbag, right?
