I recommend you read before you post. before you respond back , take off your homer glasses and be sure to wipe that egg off your face
Actually, you are wrong. AGAIN. The typical 1st year Investment Banking analyst all-in compensation (base plus bonus) out of undergraduate is exactly around that figure. And most don't come from undergraduate business programs but from economics, math, etc...Heck, in the Ivys some even come from being English majors.

Thanks for liking my picture, HtownLove! I didn't know Houston was so LA like. It's even more lit up than I've thought!

The only three noteworthy schools in the state (on an overall basis) are Rice University, University of Texas at Austin, & Texas A&M University. There are good law schools and medical schools and all that but I'm talking about overall.

I go to UT-Austin and I do agree that for the second largest state we come in very poorly here, the reason I mention this is because when applying to schools most of mine were out of state besides my application to UT-Austin & Trinity University. But I can have some civilized decency and not be a douche about it in my posts though to get a point across.

However if I recall, Matt simply stated that University of Houston is one of the most diverse schools in the country in terms of ethnicities and races attending the school, which is actually true though. I don't see what all the emotions are about.

If you're saying the entire state needs to work on its education field and get better schools, I entirely agree. If you're saying that people are worthless because they go to a school that's not accredited the same way as Rice, UCLA, UT-Austin, USC, among others then I disagree entirely.
I never said that people are worthless if they attend UH. What I said is that UH is nowhere near any UC school. UH is a nice college for those that can't get into UT or equivalent schools or just want a decent but not high caliber education.

Texas education overall is nowhere near where it needs to be. However, that being said, Houston should be proud of Rice University. It's one of the highest ranked schools in the South. Schools like Rice are what make a city great. Dallas doesn't even come close with SMU, so that's one area that Houston has Dallas beat by a mile.
