sorry to be such a lurker and stalker, nspeds.. but I lurk a lot. It's nothing personal. BTW, the monty python video clip on that LS forum is classic.
<p>Unfortunately, since my goal is to work in academia, I am only aware of reasons to attend one school or the other in that respect.</p>
<p>What I can say, however, is that if you are not interested in working in academia, choosing Georgetown will not be harmful in the least. The MSB has a solid reputation and is recruited frequently by, it seems, top employers. Also, since Georgetown is a very pre-professional school, the administration usually does an excellent job in ensuring that their students obtain the best jobs. I cannot say the same applies to UChicago; in fact, I can say that the administration eschews such an approach to education, which is admirable.</p>
<p>Consider that the MSB was recently taken over by the former dean of NYU Stern. I think this move in itself means that good years are ahead for the MSB. In addition, the MSB will have its own building completed by fall 2008, so look for it to rise even higher in rankings, reputation, and prestige.</p>
<p>Much to my disdain, Georgetown seems to be heavily invested in the MSB; I guess it is for good reason, since most of the best donors probably come from either there or the SFS.</p>
though I hate the fact that students in the Busines schools are know to be slackers, lazy asses and for some, quite stupid.
<p>Students will have their opinions. In the "College Life" forum there is a thread on wearing Pink Polos, with many males saying that it is "gay." What are you going to do about it if you like pink polos? Just do what you want. What people think is their problem, not yours. In the end, your happiness, and thus satisfying yourself is what matters, not satisfying them.</p>
