    Do they really? I find that hard to believe. Some of the smartest people I know have been the biggest failures.

    So you think if it's not top 15 it's no good. I've always heard that. Will top 50 get me anywhere

    From what I've heard, most likely not.

    Now, I'm not sure if this is against the rules, and I apologize if it is, but I suggest the OP check out, there are many more who have taken/are taking the MBA/finance degree route and they may be able to offer you more relevant advice.

  6. Agree. One needs real credentials like JD, CPA, etc. to survive this economy.

  7. well then they probably didn't get interviewed at a hedge fund that could have used their intelligence.

    i'm sure if some of jim simon's employees never interviewed there they would have turned into failures as well. now they're multi millionairs.

  8. Learn a trade, lmao. The OP can get into a MBA program and some advise him to go the dumb/piker route of a trade. Too funny.

  9. I agree, actually. If you learn a good trade, it's way more valuable than a Temple MBA.

    Education pays off; while a trade is grunt work without a set schedule working with degenerates.
