  1. I would find that hard to believe under the current environment. Yield at the tippy top schools is always high, and especially so this year.
  2. At best, this is anecdotal, and at worse, unsubstantiated and just flippant. I have been a visiting faculty at one of the premier schools several times in my career, and that is is just not true. While there are certainly some individuals that have significant resources, it’s an outlier, and moreover, most of the students I have observed with families in tow, have fairly limited resources.
  3. Yield in past years have already been close to 90 percent.
  4. D is doing a similar program (genomic science) at UW and loves it.
  5. Gerald brings real gravitas and explanation to the role of Indian Country and its juxtaposition to conservation topics.
  6. I would say in terms of overall programming and the other elements of the total Yale academic community -yes. But, Dorceta is the GOAT, and still has produced and continues to produce on the most seminal study on the topic. And I say this as someone who is double blue.
  7. Hmmmn, I can’t speak to every organization (I did previously work for Boston Consulting) but if you are coming out of undergrad, much of it is limited to the school you attended. Thus, places like Yale, Harvard, Princeton, MIT, Stanford, etc....are part of the usual suspects. More than a few of these are not STEM or from the business side; so there is an appreciable deference to the quality of the undergrad education.
  8. Hmmmn, divorced from their graduate programs—not sure about that at all. YLS , HLS, Harvard MBA, in short these represent the benchmark of their respective professional programs, and they are leagues ahead of most programs—this has little to do with undergraduate education.
  9. Both Bain and Boston are starting recently minted undergrads with comp at about 90kplus. Thus, within two-three years, six figures is an easy lift.
  10. While certainly cumbersome and probably not the most efficient, I doubt that these remotely approaches the threshold of being something that can be litigated.
  11. I suggest you take a close look at the recruiters and what placements look like: at the upper tier, Harvard and Princeton, whether it’s correct or not, have an outsized influence in many think tanks, foundations and larger non-profits.
  12. Former faculty at Yale SOM here , as you are well aware, this track is profoundly competitive-yield typically hovers around 90 percent, give or take a couple of ticks.
