One More Business-School-Weekend Tale

Northwestern UniversityHere’s a good one for all my NU buds:

One of the career panel discussions featuring Michigan alums had a panelist who had attended the University of Wisconsin as an undergrad. When they opened the panel up for questions, I asked another panelist what he thought about the consulting vs. general management track at Ross, then added a jokey question for the Wisconsin dude in which I asked, as a fellow Big Ten undergrad dealing with similar issues, how it felt to be in a conflicted football-fan state for grad school. My question got a chuckle from the panel and the audience, prompting the panelist to ask me which Big Ten school I attended for undergrad. When I answered “Northwestern”, the whole room laughed at me and at least one dude shouted, “That doesn’t count.”

Go ‘Cats!
