lexy's dad went to bc too! harvard mba and uvm ba. in addition to wearing bow ties with flair, lexy's dad can sing (painfully badly) the flight song for just about any school you can think of.

Were the sports teams so bad that they had songs for when they flee?

 :D

I, for one, would never want to work with trump.  I will be more than happy to pursue other ways to success.

Lexy, I did not know your dad had an MBA too.  I think a lot of us could learn from him if you talk about him more.  I know people don't agree with me, and the JD/MBA degree (I don't know if your dad did this at the same time or not) always impress me.  If for only the fact that a JD wanted to start as a sole practioner, his/her MBA would help run his business, rather than others who don't have a business background, and won't do anything but work for someone else.  What does he do now?  Retired?  Does he work for a large practice?  Was/is he practicing law currently?  What is his speciality?  Basically, I wuld like to see his resume online  ;D  Does he like the law better, what field, does/did he use his MBA to benefit him in any way?  I know you think I am odd, but I have complete respect for older people who have accomplished many things, I think your dad might be one of them.  We can all learn from people like this.  Spill it Lexy, It's not jkust me, a lot of people would be intersted.  Did he work so hard that you never went on vaction, and rarely saw him, or was he a family man first?  My dad, A CPA, no legal experience, was home at dinner at 6 sharp.  We all ate at six sharp.  If he had to stay late, he brought his work home with him.  I know a very successful man who never got to even know his own son because he was too involved with working 100 hours weeks.  Please do tell, of course everybody doesn't expect you to get too personal.

That's quite a resume.  I guess Michigan has a good business school?
She's pretty too, and single  ;)  but needs to knock of that crying crap. 

michigan's business school is #10 in USNews right now.  she is pretty.  i'm surprised business school didn't train her to deal with situations without crying.  you'd think with all the group projects and stuff you have to do, you'd be used to dealing with conflict.  just goes to show you how damn catty women are.  maybe she mostly worked with men, or just having men in their B-school group tamed the women.

I understand women are more emotional than men, and in part, thet may be a good thing.  But she is also older (31) she needs to learn how to use those emotions to her advantage
not to her demise.  But wtf do I know.  (the last was rhetorical)

i think she should have learned to control her emotions long ago because you can't just break down crying when you're working with men; they'll look down on you.  she wasn't working with men in this task, but she's competing against men and being judged by them, so she should freaking toughen up.  and all those girls should stop giving my gender a bad name!  argh.

omg, you crack me up. he went right into the mba out of undergrad, which is pretty rare, and then decided after that he wanted to be an attorney. all of his work is corporate, so the degrees always complemented each other-- it wasnt an either/or like you imply. he was at his own firm for years, and then went in-house as GC for what was his biggest client. he is definitely both a workaholic and a family guy, which just means he doesnt sleep (works around the clock and then coaches our softball teams, mock trial teams, etc).

I don't know why people respect this man, Trump.  All his money is in real estate, and he inherited most of it.  He lost it all with the real estate bubble bursting in the late 80/s early 90's.  Let's see I have a ton of inherited property, my job is to manage these properties and start new adventures such as Trump Ice.  Is that the name for his bottled water
venture?  I have never seem his water in the stores.  Then the real estate market booms agsin, and he is now very wealthy.  His whole success is determined by outside factors he cannot control.  Puke on him.  I don't even want to know where he went to school, if he did.

Sounds like an awesome guy.  Family is very important to me, that is why I hate it when everybody says you have to put in 100 hours a week.  Yeah sure, maybe at first, but then you learn your priorities, I bet yor dad is far more of A role model than you have portrayed him.  Again, wtf do i know.  But I think I'm right on this one.

Besides, I got 4 lines from you.  ;D
