Not sure what Shawshank's deal is. Honestly sounds like one of those pandering prestige nerds I would never hang out with at b school anyway. Keep in mind he heard this from a Wharton guy, most of whom are even douchier than he is.

Lets just say you'll have an awesome life if you're a badass, no matter where you go. I got an interview with BCG despite coming from a regional top 75 private undergrad, and it's because I know how to network. If you can't hustle, you're going to be screwed even if you come out of HBS.

I merely reported what other students/alums have told me. I PERSONALLY think Stern is a great school but decided that it wasn't right for me. I came extremely close to applying there and was going to visit, but hurricane sandy foiled my plans. I also reached out to several students in clubs i'm interested in to get a feel for the recruiting opportunities.

It's interesting that people are making ad hominem attacks on me for reporting what others have told me. If you want to bash the wharton guy who made those comments about stern, that's fine, but don't shoot the messenger. Let's ensure that GMAT Club remains a mature forum.

Very well said Shawshank (great movie btw). Someone probably needs to stop overcompensating for something, this isn't the first time I've seen a comment like this from him.

Nor is it the first time I've seen Shawshank bashing Stern for no apparent reason. I think codytravers' analysis is "spot on". If this were an isolated occurence, I wouldn't have said anything. I don't post a lot on these forums. But it's not an isolated occurence, and it's obvious that he has something against Stern. The "don't shoot the messenger" defense doesn't really hold either - the only reason you're relaying "information" from your elitist buddies is because you believe it yourself. Which is fine, if a bit odd, but at least own up to it; don't tell us that you personally think Stern is a great school, because that's obviously not what you truly think. If you think it sucks, then say you think it sucks, and give us some logical reasoning behind it.

I wasn't trying to start a feud, I was just hoping you (Shawshank) would cool it. If you were just an elitist who looked down upon every non M7 or m8 school, at least then I'd understand it. The fact that it's always about Stern is just plain weird dude.

True, it takes two to tango. School-bashing is bad, but people-bashing is worse. Keep 'em above the belt, everyone :)

Nah, when it comes to people-bashing, Shawshank is completely fair game. Dude's a troll if you haven't noticed.

He just didn't apply to Stern because it wasn't 'transformational' enough and the social scene for single guys wasn't like 'shooting fish in a barrel.' Cut him some slack.

This thread needs to quickly get back on topic before it gets deleted and the useful advice that's buried in here gets lost. Please do NOT turn GMAT Club into WSO.

This post is actually pretty ironic since Shawshank was bashing Stern on WSO for a very very long time. Suddenly, a change of heart here since he knows the Adcoms are watching!
