"business" schools?

Is that because they're more ethical, or because they make more connections to avoid jail because they're friends of those in charge of enforcing the law?

Um?

ATL Link about law schools, Headline about business schools?

Oh Fark, where "it's not news, it's incomprehensible!"

ATL is a cesspool. I used to go there when I started law school. Then I started reading the comments. It shocked me that those are the people in my chosen profession.

If subby meant law schools, then that's wrong since Yale was the top rated law school in US News. If subby meant business schools, then the link is wrong. In either case, subby fail!

As Calvin Coolidge said, "The business of America is lawyers."

Yeah, it's because they cover for each other and don't get caught.

Subby, there were some hints that they were writing about law schools: the word "law" was mentioned several times, and it is a website called "Above the Law," which discusses, you know, law stuff.

/I said law four times
//really like law

I'm waiting for a "that's the joke" post so I'll know it was a joke.....because I don't get it.

In Cool Story Bro news, I bought an online sub/access to this year's law school rankings access because I apply this year. Hopefully to a Tier 14 school; got the GPA, need the LSAT.

So, getting a kick, etc.

TOLERABLE:
-subby doesn't know the difference between law school and business school
-subby doesn't know that Yale is a US school

INTOLERABLE:
-subby's inaccurate and inane headline gets greenlighted
-I'm wasting billable hours biatching about a Fark headline

All hail the institutions whom instructed the sons and daughters of wealth that increasing your shareholders profits by even a fraction of a percent means more than keeping your countrymen gainfully employed.

The "lowest ratio" would mean the fewest CEOs and most prison inmates (relatively). Is that the joke? If it's not, I don't get it. If it is, I still don't get it.

Stanford only has SIMULATED prison inmates.

Dimon was Harvard (MBA):

Turns out the London whale was more a Cassandra/patsy (fed to the try pots of the press to blow a black cloud of smoke into the eyes of the public/regulators).

Hearing in the morning (PSC Investigations - Levin/McCain) ought to be interesting if dear Ina doesn't plead the Fifth.

With link to the PDF Report (don't pull punches in this investigation):

Harvard Business worked for GW, so it's got that going on.
