My dad sat me down last night and talked to me about business school. Frankly, I can’t believe he could pry himself away from my stepmom long enough to have a normal conversation, and I’m sort of proud. He would never set aside this much time for me just to talk about my boy problems.
The interesting thing is, though, that business school and dating seem very similar. Among the things my dad told me that I ALWAYS tell Jenny about boys…
* Don’t show your cards all at once, especially if you’re negotiating a second meeting (or date)
*Always overestimate your worth when planning a merger
*Never assess the merchandise in public
*And most important, never EVER accept a first offer.
I think I’m gonna ace business school, I do.
