Oh, he's ADORABLE. My Mom would have loved him. Member of Key Club and Peer Listeners, and he wants to be a businessman! What a dreamer!

Well, at least that means he won't be going to Princeton's non-existent business school.

Since when does Yale have an undergraduate business major program? They are recruiting the kid.

They're probably pitching a degree in economics. It's not the same as a business degree, but he might go for it.

True that. A lot of the biz courses that I took (at another institution of higher learning) were dumbed down liberal arts courses (Marketing, Organizational Behavior, Bus. Psych., etc.).

Interesting. My one Wharton course (Legal Studies) definitely benefited from the humanistic and liberal arts themes sprinkled throughout.

Not surprisingly, I was told later that it was the most "unWharton"ish course that existed.

With Murray Dolfman? I took that course too. He was a hoot. I can still recite the definition of consideration, so I guess I learned something.

So we all took the same course.

I took 2 other Wharton courses. One was heavy in mathematical modeling so easy to ace for an engineering student in a room full of Whartonites. Another was in public planning, which was very fascinating but of course no Whartonites took it.

With Bauer, although others took with Dolfman.

I loved the course--he used Socratic method in a large room and was an active participant. I really hated my Talmud courses in high school (2 forty minute periods for four years...still don't care for it after all of these years) but that training really came in handy for that course and I aced it.

My favorite Socratic method story is at Columbia, where the stern Hans Smit taught Federal Civil Procedure 1 (I had Ruth Bader Ginsberg for II---snore). He worked off a seating chart and called on people, probably checking off those who have answered and moving onto others. Before classes started, the seating chart was on the wall in the hallway and students were required to put their name on a particular seat. Well, not every seat was filled in that class and some joker wrote in "P. Ness" in one unfilled box.

You can guess what happened. Smit got around to that box and asked a question, calling out, "What do you think about that, Mr. Ness? Mr. Ness? Is there a P. Ness in the classroom?" Snickers all around...and the Teutonic glare glazed over and he chuckled and said, "OK, you think that's funny?" He then destroyed the class with rapid fire Socratic questions for the next half-hour, with Kingsfield-like putdowns after each student got the answer wrong.

Other than that, law school kinda sucked (except for playing noon games at center court at Levien--those were classic).

Funny- Stephen Breyer taught Admin Law for a year at my law school and I was told he was boring as hell.

We didn't have the imagination that your classmates had. But granted, we only had one professor who was strictly Socratic, and other than letting you hang for several painful moments if you didn't know the answer, he really wasn't a dick.

I took legal studies with Dolfman it as well. I transferred to Wharton after 2 years of Engineering and this did wonders for my GPA. Were your public planning courses in the Regional Science department? I took 2 of those and they were among my favorites at Penn.

Yes, it was the Regional Science department. I wish I could remember the professor's name. He did a lot of work with municipal governments on infrastructure projects and was on the road frequently.

If he's a good defender, opponents will say "Get the Funk out of my face".
