I attribute my sense of entitlement to my mastery of homophonic heterographs.
This seems like one of those things that's the Jews' fault.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
lol "one of those things"
true, although not for the reason you probably think
Phatboy if you had any balls I'd meet you at the AFA Boxing gym and have Coach Weichers put some gloves on us.
You could just as easily replace white men with black women. In any event, I agree your generation has an excessive sense of entitlement.
Entitlement? Man, we talkin about entitlment. C'mon, Mr. Consortium. It's easier to not care when you aren't on the hook to Uncle Sam for tens of thousands of dollars. Most of us honks have to pay the cover charge at these schools.
Not getting an offer doesn't mean the end of the world, but it sure feels like it when you actually have skin (no pun) in the game. Before b-school when the crash happened, I got laid off, burned what little I had, struggled with debt (and had to fully finance my MBA with loans). Fortunately, I was heading off for a chance to find a new career path, but with all of that other financial burden, I really needed to have a job when I left school. For somebody that really needed to make money and was willing to kill himself for the opportunity to change his cards, an internship offer meant everything.
If you're an "entitled" whitey like myself going into finance, you had better have prior work experience in that field, because if there's one thing that banks aren't short on, it's caucasian males. Half the battle in obtaining an internship is selling your story. Most of the people that you talk to have no comprehension of places like PG County or Waldorf. They're too busy "summering" in New England. It's hard to connect with people when you like college basketball and they enjoy things like rowing and wearing red pants. Things worked themselves out in the end, but the entitlement thing is so far from true.
Maybe you just haven't ever had your back against the wall or wanted something badly enough for it to crush you when things don't work out. Maybe these people aren't what you think they are. It also doesn't mean that the people aren't resilient and will bounce back, but those bad times are the ones that compel me to stay hungry so that I never have to experience them again.
Although, I can't find your stance all that surpising. I'm sure going to Duke only fed your confirmation bias. Sorry, man, but what you said hit home because there are way too many people out there that think like you. Every story is different, though.

All I know is that I'm entitled to my great great second cousins fortune, but those guys over in Nigeria won't send it over even though I keep sending them money every month for the various fees and red tape.
It's been three and a half years, get your shit together.
Then you're a bigger moron than anyone here gives you credit for if you're at Duke instead of better schools ...
All I ask is that you not steal my shit, my women, and you stay the fuck off my lawn. If that's entitled, then so be it.
Would you be mad if there was a white history month?
This thing called scholarship money plays a huge factor into most b-school decisions. Not to mention my undergrad GPA wasn't stellar by any means. I applied to 4 schools got into 2 waitlisted at 1, and dinged at 1. Stop hating all your life.
Should've come to Ross. Cold as hell, but at least we have the #1 bball team and you don't have to deal with Dukies all day.
Also you have hotter women and Ann Arbor>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Durham.
If we have hotter women at Ross, then Fuqua is seriously hurting.
Also AA is better than most college towns in the country.
I really, really should have looked at Ross. Real college sports (:noDuke) at an MBA program would have been so nice.
Weather has been awful lately--until today we didn't have a day over 10 degrees since we got back from winter break.
BUT, major college sports is great. Football game day is incredible and the fact that the basketball team is good is even better.
Plus, like Tiffles said Ann Arbor is awesome.
Are you guys cut off from undergrads? At Fuqua were pretty mucha self contained campus. I mean you have to imagine University of Michigan has some good undergraduate coeds?
No, we are right in the middle of Central Campus. The Ross building is actually surrounded on all sides by fraternity and sorority houses. We are also 2 blocks from the main undergrad nightlife area in Ann Arbor.
UM has great coeds, but they are usually bundled up so you can't really tell. Spring/Summer/Early Fall in Ann Arbor has amazing scenery though.
Which is why the outcry from the Hillary supporters after Obama won the Democratic nomination in '08 was hilarious/ironic.
Detroit Hustles Harder
one of my buddies just finished his MBA at Indiana and went from a consulting job at Deloitte in 2010 to a consulting job at PwC in 2012.
tiffles, why is it city black women are the worst type of people, while country black women are the best?
Sounds like a huge waste of 2 years and -300k cash flow.
