If it had been for the "White and Privileged" fund, however...

SilverCity Cashier: (ringing up ticket purchase) Would you like to donate $3 to the Variety Children's Fund?
Guy: No thanks, I hate children.

Well, i gotta admit, they ask u to donate everywhere - it s just becoming annoying. I dont think I can go along the day not being asked at least once. At school, at work, at stores, at movies, through email and in the news... So I cant blame the guy...

Or maybe just not some rich asshole in MIT from Toronto rebeling against daddy but who still takes the grand a week rather than getting a job and finding out what life is like for the rest of us.

^ Funny. The average STARTING salary for an HBA is 58k.

Haha.. and that s all u get for ur investment of 50K? I mean, you obviously have problems with basic financial math guys... Maybe it s better only to invest 10K and start with 40K... though I thought it s the starting 58K for engineers as well, and dont they pay same 10K for their education... ? Ugh... too much math for poor business students...but hey, they are required to do Math 030 only... Scheisse :)

^ You really must be clinically retarded. 58k is a starting salary, that doesn't take into account the earnings difference over the fifty years one spends in the workforce. A high school drop-out could get a 28k a year job right after the quit school, and that takes no investment at all. But only a retard would argue that a HS dropout will make the same amount of money over their lifetime as a college grad. Basically, you're arguing the same moot point.

I can tell you're not an Ivey student, since you have no grasp whatsoever of differential cash flows.

Yeah, it's not like those studying post-modernist feminist critiques of sub-African literature use buzzwords.

12.49, why do you get so mad and sound so obsessed about stupid ideas of some clinically retarded people... Besides, if 11.30 is indeed such a person, he/she would not understand anything about the "differential cash flows" anyways...

p.s. Oh and u sure u understand urself?

The best part is going to be when 12:49 forgets what differential cash flows 15 minutes after graduation.

Hate to say it, but 75% of what you learn at university is useless facts that can be forgotten right after the test. Then again, I have a non-Ivey degree in business, so what do I know?

Ok. Well, if u re going to discount 58K against 40K over lifetime - of course then it seems to be better off with Ivey. But that s just a wrong way to do it. First of all, if we are talking about a graduate student within the fin field - there s no reason why a non-Ivey should get less than an Ivey grad. Well, just to make you happy, maybe... but how big will be the difference? 2K? 5K top? exactly..
Then. What if the regular grad will work for couple of years, get the experience and simply invests the money into MBA... What did they tell you about the MBA grads' averages..? You should know better.
But fine, let the poor guy/girl just work.. Do you know that it s easier to live this life without a student loan of 40k? But it sure is... It s 40K extra that you can easily get from the bank and "invest" in any direct and indirect sense of the word.
And by the way, unfortunately, the salary increases not with constant rate. More than that eventually, on average, it stops to increase completely. Thus, even if we assume the difference over the first several years - at the end both professionals will get the same. Plus to that, it s easier to get promoted from 40K to 50K than from 60K to 70K...

But in the end it all simply comes to being motivated enough to find an excellent job. Ivey/non-Ivey... doesn't matter...

It's funny how Ivey people think they are so great, but none of them can sufficiently communicate this greatness.

There is something to be said for grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Regardless of how innovative your ideas may or may not be, if you cannot convey them then you're fucked!

I know someone will reply with "well, I didn't have time to check it on my computer." That doesn't matter. If you are proficient in all of those things, you do not need a computer!

It is no suprise that the idiot is anti-Ivey. I would be "anti-Ivey" if I had just wasted 50k on a degree that does not compensate for my stupidity.

First, this 58k average student is a hypothetical creature. For the many HBAs going into investment banking, it's more like 65-90k base + 40-80k bonus. The bonus is not reflected in the statistics. For the most prominent industries (management consulting and finance) that employ HBAs, salary also increases dramatically each year. To get into an MBA program that provides comparable opportunities, you generally would have to go to a better undergrad school. You can call us soulles phonies who would never succeed in a real academic programs: this is often true. But let it be resolved that we make more money than anyone else.

5:00pm - that's hilarious after that entire exchange. Good job. I think we're all entirely too self-centered, both Ivey and non-Ivey. Let's focus on what's important: hating children
