I assume you are referring to graduate school...

In all fairness, he chose to become a billionaire instead. I know plenty of Wharton (and Harvard) Biz school graduates who haven't accumulated that much success despite their "better" education.
So which one is it? Is the education important or not? One post it’s proof of his smarts, the next you say it isn’t important.

For the herd...Wharton undergrad is actually the highest rated undergrad biz school and has been for years. The grad school is always in a dogfight for one of the top 3 spots. So, Wharton is a pretty big deal, the undergrad arguably more so than the MBA, at least in competitiveness.

That said, it wasn’t as prestigious in the 1970s, when Trump was attending it and avoiding STDs in lieu of military service. Also, he was a transfer student with a donor as a father. Take that for what you will.

He “became” a billionaire the same way I became 6’2”...he inherited most of it. Much of the rest he scammed. His business ethics are nothing to be admired. More than one analysis shows that he would have been richer if he’d just put his inheritance in an index fund.

I'm not making a judgment on the value of his education. My point was that if you value an Ivy League pedigree, Trump isn't exactly lacking.

And regardless of how much he inherited, objectively speaking his accomplishments are significant. He's a billionaire with a global brand and the leader of the free world. Plenty of trust fund babies have done much, much worse. After all, the quickest way to make a small fortune is to start with a large one...

Wharton is not an Ivy League school.
Are undergraduates at "Wharton" not also students of U. of Penn? If so, they'd be Ivy Leaguers... (and then I would like to poke fun at them for being Ivy Leaguers). Unless something's off, Wharton is simply the name of a school at Penn that happens to dominate the name of the B-school over the host university, just like Sloan does at MIT.
Please let's threadjack on this for at least a week.

You were wrong so you deleted the post?

I read up a bit more, discovered my error, and deleted it. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you, or your families. I have taken steps to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again. I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive this most regrettable incident.

I'm curious to see if the #resistance will lionize Strzok, like they did McCabe and Comey.

So basically guy thinks Trump is a bafoon, texts his friend about it...now he is a subversive? and the entire FBI is now a threat to our nation?
Comey was a hero when he announced the investigation into Hillary...then he was a goat when he stopped, then he was a hero again. The right's opinions on Comey were about as consistent as Hannity's opinion about North Korea....Just depends on who is doing it)

Sorry man..thinking Trump is a doofus does not make you #resistance....ask Paul Ryan, John McCain, the Bushes...etc. Paul Ryan falls in line, but he hates Trump as much as anyone on the left does.

Strzok is allowed to have a personal opinion of the President...just like you hypocrites had shown from 2008-2016
