Go Where the Opportunity Lies: Master's Programs

Go Where the Opportunity Lies: Master's Programs

You took the Veritas Prep Full Course and you just nailed the GMAT on your first try. You’re chest-bumping the rest of your 2nd-year analyst team at J.T. Marlin while the NASDAQ drops it like its hot. You just did a five-point take-down on the biggest standardized test of your life. Your 760 tells the rest of the world that you’re 99% sharper than the other knives in the drawer and good enough for the top quarter of HBS’s incoming class. You’re pretty darn swoll and you’re making your way up to a deluxe top ten MBA program in the sky.

As you kick back in your Herman Miller Aeron, you imagine moving beyond your humble and current 28% tax bracket. As you dream of sunny days, chrome spinnin’ and moving beyond DUMBO into SoHo, your Managing Partner’s assistant’s assistant calls you over. He whispers, “Mr. Gecko would like to see you in his office in five minutes, please do not be late.” Four minutes and fifty seconds later you find your polyestor/wool blend wearing glutes in a leather chair that resembles part baseball glove, part Angelo Mozillo. Mr. Gecko’s perfectly parted hair, Barney’s New York suit and Shell cordovan shoes are a perfect reflection of you and your MBA in 25 years.
