For those who got rejeted by their dream school

Postby cr073137 » Wed Mar 24, 2010 11:00 am

I told my boss that I got rejected from my dream school. And he, and IVY League graduate, gave me this: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142 ... 95962.html

summary:

a couple of million/billionaires got rejected from Harvard and Yale and wound up at Columbia and overcame that incredible adversity...

..oh.. and now one of their kids goes to WUSTL.. very inspiring

...dont worry.. there is still hope..

Heh, I was thinking the same thing pta. I guess you can still be successful if you go to Columbia. That's great to know.

It's interesting that a lot of the Harvard rejects ended up attending Columbia...this makes me feel better about my impending HLS WL/rejection because this will probably be my path, too. :)

lol, the entire article seems to go like this:

1. Get rejected from Harvard
2. Do something associated with Columbia
3. ????
4. Profit!!!

Methinks somebody at Columbia was pushing for this :D .
