    And the poor kid knows, he’s gonna lose his hair. And end up looking like his father.
    And he only needs a perfect 4.0 G.P.A. to make dad happy.

    And once you get that first job, no one in the real world cares what your GPA was.

    Or any of the other Ivy League schools for that matter.


    ratings are over-rated, fuzzpunch.

    Ivy is for putting cracks in rock walls and smothering trees. Pick a school that teaches thinking. We have our share of bad schools here, but when most here think of the Ivy League, they literally think of people too impractical and fad-driven to make it outside an academic environment.

    Wonder why? Business schools that produce people “smart enough” to cut half the workforce to “improve the bottom line” and then wonder why the company goes under the next year like so many since 1990.

    must be a northeast thing – out here in the midwest the only thing that matters is the athletic program

    While I encourage my kids to get good grades, I’m thrilled with a 90% average. And they have plenty of time to do chores, hang with friends and even go the church…. : )

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    Academics DOES matter – but I’m with you on Business Schools – what they produce is generally people who are into short-term gains and long-term stupidiy.
