    I'm required to be at work from 9-6 despite the fact that the term doesn't start for 2 weeks, but more importantly I can't do any work because the master schedule isn't done yet and I don't know what courses I need to be teaching. So, I just rot from 9-6pm while I could be outside getting things I actually need done done. Then I eat dinner alone and go back home. Settling down and working in a new place can be depressing as hell.

    HK is awesome, it's just a bit overwhelming competing (socially and professionally) with so many big-timers whnay would be jealous of.

    Yeah, really. Walking through Central alone can be profoundly desolating. Nobody would look at you if you had two heads.

    +1 thank god I'm not still in Portland

    Profits from a sale on the B/S going into the family's bank account, rather than being limited to my personal spending.

    School in Britain, though more expensive than it used to be, is still extremely cheap compared to America.

    edit: not to mention viewed as more prestigious.

    50k a year ain't no joke. Thats ivy league in the states dawg.

    And I don't particularly think British schools are viewed as more prestigious other than Oxford and Cambridge.

    I mean I go to Cal Poly Slo, and while I'm sure its not prestigious as some of the schools Fuji has mentioned paying 20k a year makes me happy.

    LSE is pretty prestigious. Probably the best school in the world for its particular area of study. some of the greatest economic minds have come out of there.

    I'd be surprised if Fuji's family was paying 50k out of pocket but that's his business.

    Undergrad fees at LSE are about half that.
