    Hey Alan C, nothing wrong with a public school. Some of the most intelligent and successful people I know went to public schools. FCS, I'll answer your question when I have a bit more time. Got an exam and essay due in the morning...

    I have to tell myself things like this when my confidence diminishes after seeing so many fine schools and majors that members on this board attend. I feel like white trash. But what can I say, I love my school, my city, and my scene. [​IMG] I am a firm believer that to have class does not require an upper-class income, but after reading this board so much and seeing such eloquent language and prestigious careers, I can't come to believe that my theology is 100% true.

    First year of university at Erasmus University Rotterdam, then switched to Maastricht University, where I graduated with a degree in Economics (Accounting). Thereafter I attended a postgraduate program to become the Dutch equivalent of a CPA. However, I still have not completed that one and doubt I ever will... My interest in clothes started with the publication in the Netherlands of a book called Man en Pak (Man and Suit). After that I bought several other books that are well known among you all. And I started buying progressively better clothes, although perhaps not up to the standards of others in the forum. Still, it's nice to have something to aspire to  [​IMG] . MtB

    Stick with your principles.Having class is all about how you treat other people.Not what school you attended or how much money you have accumulated.Some of the classiest people I know never went to college.

    Given the reputation of those two schools, I'd say they were far from useless. BA from NYU. Go Violets.

    Oh, I don't lose any sleep over it. I take solace in the fact that I didn't have to pay for any of it. [​IMG]

    I don't know about that, but the CFA is certainly more prestigious in certain circles. MBAs seem to be a dime a dozen these days. I think there are only 50,000 CFAs worldwide. I do know that only 37% passed the last CFA exam I took -- and passed. [​IMG] Thanks for the good wishes.
