Please tell the Class from what esteemed institution you graduated. Thank you.
At Booth the faculty has resisted the requests of many years by students for courses on real estate. The faculty has specifically stated there is nothing special about real estate and real estate finance that creates an academic discipline. Tens of millions of recent immigrants (many of whom can barely speak English) buy two-, four- or six-flats upon arrival in the United States. They do quite well financially, thank you, because any idiot can buy and rent a building. There is no serious skill involved, and certainly no basis for an academic discipline. That is why students at seriously academic universities DO NOT study real estate. Perhaps at junior colleges such courses might be offered, but, of course, those glorified high schools are not academic institutions.
You think that if I tell you the name of a college that I graduated from that is what this is about? You have just told me everything I need to know about you. Got some news for you Terri, you are a snob. Yes, I graduated from one of the best colleges in the country. Yes they had classes on many aspects of real estate. No, I did not take any of those classes there.
This is not about college. College to me is for getting a piece of papar. It no more defines how much money you will make in life than does your religion. Money is made out side of college, not in side of it. Most colleges do not even talk about making money. That would be like telling a child that is learning to walk how to run a hundred yard dash at the Olympics. They would not even understand it.
Unfortunately for you, you think you have to win the college name wars to make money. That shows me that you never made any money at all. College does not make you rich, your brains and motivation make you rich. I would take any HS student that is hungry to be successful over any college grad in any subject 100% of the time. You seem to think it about the name of the college you went to that makes you an 'expert" in making money. That is why I said that I went to the "school of hard knocks" to get my financial education. Unfortunately for you, you took it literally and looked up that name to see where it is located and the rating it has.-lol!
Ah,...you crack me up Terri. Brag a little about yourself in $$ terms, then maybe you will get some respect in here. Tell us some of your best deals, or any deal. Otherwise you have nothing to say about anything at all, since you think it is all about pedigree and names that make the person. You could not be more wrong. Some of the richest people I know came from nothing. They were poor growing up, and made their own wealth through hard work, intelligence, and guts. Most of them did not learn any of that in college. Many of them never even went to college. They just went out and did it.
So, we all await your answer...
