Here's a great Ph.D. that even Teger will laugh at: Folklore. Memorial U in Newfoundland.

Degrees from good schools go a long way in the States. We're very name conscious and alumni networks can help. I didn't understand your initial question, so I sidestepped it.

Hey bro, sounds like you just need to go with your gut here. Have you read any of Donald Trump's books??? Didn't think so... What about Jesse Ventura?? Read any of his books???? Yea, didn't think so, either. THE RISING TIDE LIFTS ALL BOATS. Really, though. It's most likely because you're not on LinkedIn -- that, or your profile isn't proper. What kind of haircut do you have?? That could make a HUGE difference. In emails, do you use contractions? How many exclamation points do you use a week? HOW MANY NUMBERS ARE ON YOUR RESUME? These are all important.

Let's try and avoid BC&E becoming DT, or worse, CE, shall we?

i have a standing dare with the board to go fucking with the tone in the business forum. We are seldom called 'heavy handed' at SF. The business forum is Matt's Exception Zone. You are as close as anyone has been to the edge. Just. A. Little. Nudge.

I don't really see why that's so bad.

seems pretty bogus... maybe it's just the difference between american/canadian universities, but looking at the application procedure, recommended scores, costs, etc.. just real low.

Banned. EDIT: Sorry, Matt. EDIT2: I've spent too much time with union guys. They've affected me in a way I cannot explain.

I have not looked into it, but again, it would seem not too many offer them. I have never met anybody who had one or heard of it. Yet, online, I see it mentioned often enough.
