So I have to repost it from the previous thread.

I am looking for some advice. Does anyone here have an MBA degree? I can get into one of the best business schools however it costs... a lot. Would the investment be worth it? I wanted to work on my PhD (Free ride) but MBA sounds a little more tempting (better pay, 2 years, lesser work).

If so, what should I study in my spare time to help me get in and out?

Get the MBA...it's worth it. Study hard for the GMAT...pay attention and do all the reading the first semester to get you back in the business wheelhouse. You'll be ok.

Aero,

I put my response in the previous thread. It probably wasn't too helpful though as it's been over a decade since I did all that.

OK, I didn't get a twitter, so I didn't set something up correctly. Will have to worry about that later I guess.

I was trying to talk Auburn.

I don't think they're all that interested, which is fine. I know about other stuff.

Krootin'-

Vic Beasley, Ahmad Dixon and Markeith Ambles may visit NEXT weekend and possibly...James Stone. It's all about that last spot.

Lattimore may or may not be able to visit in an unofficial capacity this weekend.

Targets Visiting other Schools:
T. Reed is @ LSU
B. Jones is @ Arkansas
J. Whitaker is @ UGA

Sup, CH?

I have heard that the coaches told Stone that we don't have space for him. I also don't think we are after Dixon at all unless all of our plans fall through. I don't see that happening

9:20 AM

I think you're right, CH. But these guys are being mentioned as plans D, E and F.

The Freddie Mercury to the thick mustache in the late 70s didn't clue Jay G in on his preference?

9:22 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I completely agree with Jay G on the overrated British bands. Oasis = post grunge mediocrity. They had one album that was decent. Clash = meh...Morrisey and the Smiths are for emo fanboys.

9:24 AM  
Blogger Comm'r of Side Girls said...

If Howard believes his future is at RB (with Clemson) I'd love to get Dixon into this class. We need us some DBs!

9:27 AM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Also from a close friend who is a walmartian, UA is a little worried about losing Kennan Allen. He has a brother that is a QB for Buffalo and just got his release papers. He is going to visit NC State, Cal and one other shcool. The word is that Kennan is going to visit those schools with him and may follow him.

9:28 AM

I think we have several backup plans. I don't think there will be a need though. If something does happen I think we won't take a full class.

Sorry I missed the campfire but did catch the radio show.
You guys lost me on the music review until you got to dueling banjos but then you got back to the trash.

And, due to this morning's radio affirmation, I now can say that I hooked up with a stripper!

(I hooked up with her at 13, she became a stripper years later)

Yeah, I'm putting a long tail on that kite ...

9:35 AM  
Blogger scottie durden said...

don't blame you JG. gotta take 'em where you can get 'em.

so, i'm guessing you're a fan of that pop song "I'm in love with a stripper..."?

9:36 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

We probably need to talk more about Auburn ... since I'm the Auburn writer.

It's not my show, though, and I rather enjoy just freestylin' with the boys.

9:36 AM

Also want to say: Vanderbilt guard Merideth Marsh is on the All-HABOTN basketball team.

I like her style. Aggressive without being mean. Firm but fair.

Lost to Vandy again. I think it would have been a win if KeKe had not pulled a hamstring. Maybe it will be better next year.

9:40 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Jay G, it's the offseason, you talked about krootin' but nothing official for another 2 weeks. Lebo is still coaching MBB so you know what's happening there...WBB is in rebuilding mode. It is what it is.

9:41 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

It is what it is.

On the upside, I'll be reporting LIVE from Duncan, S.C., when Lattimore makes his decision a week from Tuesday.

9:45 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Good point, at eight I guess it's ok not to catch onto that.

I was 4 or 5 when "Another One Bites the Dust" came out, but I wasn't exposed to Queen until Wayne's World, so I was in high school and it was obvious.

9:46 AM

Sounds good, anything to do in Duncan besides visit the Methodist Church?

9:46 AM

I won't be in Duncan very long!

Duncan does not have a Catholic Church in case you find a need for Confession.

So do you have an ice cream hookup in Duncan?

Greetings ... I'm about to check out of my hotel in Orlando en route to East Vaughngumpery.

Good trip. Hopefully a productive one for the people. Flooded here last night. The grounds crew is pumping water out of the bunkers on the golf course right outside my window.

Take care ... I'll check on Los Calientes later.

A quick Google scan reveals a local place in Duncan called Ashley's Ice Cream Parlor...sounds like if Jay makes a visit he will have to do confession twice.

JG, are you going to deliver Lattimore a HABOTN tee in person once he makes his decision?

Corey Grant is an RB.

Dyer, DJ, Lattimore... and Auburn backed off of Seastrunk. I don't think Auburn would try to get Grant.

REcall the Seastrunk video at the BigCat weekend. He said where he signed would shock a lot of people. Recall what he said to Saban, on tape?

Aero, if you are still reading HABOTN, go for your MBA. I got my MBA from Mercer in their Executive MBA program, and I loved the experience! Beyond that, my Mercer cohorts and professors have been great at advising me on business issues beyond graduation. Obviously, I am singing the praise of my grad school alma mater, but I hear that Auburn has a great MBA program as well. Study hard for the GMAt, and go out to MBA.com for further information. Hope this helps!

Had a small adventure this morning. I work with bank owned properties, which are obviously vacant. Me and my dad were going to a house for the first time that was supposed to be vacant. When we came in there was a half drank bottle of Hennessey on the ground, so I hollered out to make sure no one was there. Went up stairs and there was a mattress with a change of clothes on the floor. So I figured some one had been staying there. Checked all of the rooms and closets to make sure no one was there. My dad was walking around taking pictures, he opened the door to a linen closet in a bathroom and there was a big man hiding in it. I heard a big thud and he came running out telling me to get out of the house. I guess I should have checked for closets in the bathrooms as well. We watched the guy leave through the back door and he looked pretty stressed out. We put all of his stuff outside and he came and got everything but the mattress.

The good news is we discovered my Dad's ticker is still strong without going to the doctor... as freaked as he was he would have dropped dead from a heart attack if it wasn't.

Aero, Gaines is correct you should get your MBA. Auburn has a really good Executive MBA program. I am getting some info on it now. I have what was a called a Micro MBA from The Buffalo School of Management, but I want to get the real thing. Auburn's program allows you get your MBA online. You do have to spend 1 wk a semester in Auburn and there is a 2wk study abroad stint in there. Your tuition covers the trip.

1:34 PM

But it doesn't suprise me too much that some do it anyway.

Steve, yeah I agree. We aren't sure but we think it might be one of the people who were just kicked out two days ago. They had been renting it when it had gone into Forclosure, and had lived there for a month after the electricity was turned off. So they probably didn't have many other options.

1:38 PM

Thank you Gaines, Seanze and RK.

Gaines, Circumstances dictate that I move to Canada after completion of my job here. Ivey and Rotman are both top 50 globally however the tuition is a $75K.

It is a pretty hefty investment. 2 years (lost wages, time, effort) and $100K. I already have a masters. what kind of ROI should I expect.

And what should be the specialization area for an Engineer?

The economy seems to be taking another big hit. The stock market is down another 100+ points today for the third day in a row. This is looking pretty bad. It is hard to see the U.S. job market improving any time soon, which is terribly sad. There are way too many people out of work and the political climate isn't helping at all.

International is definitely a plus. The business environment is changing with China becoming the economic center of the world. India is also becoming much stronger. Dealing with the overseas businesses would seem to me like the way to go, but I am definitely not a management type. A lot of my investments are now headed overseas, though.

Speaking of funny, I read earlier on AJC.com some dude had commented late last year about UGA DC Willie Martinez, "If Willie is still here next year I'm going to need a bigger TV cause our DBs aren't on my screen."

1:57 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

UGA will be one of the interesting teams next season. If they can come up with a solid defense, they might be in the mix in the east. I am thinking someone other than Florida will win the east next year, but we will have to see. Florida has tons of talent.

I'm concerned about the effect the Dallas Cowboys loss may have on our efforts to land Whitaker. The new DC will be heavily courting Whitaker this weekend. However Mommawtc has told me not to worry.


I'm also concerned that I've got work piling up and I'm posting on HABOTN.

2:05 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

UGA was a very inconsistent team this last season. If I were a recruit, I would think Auburn would be much more attractive. The 2009 Tigers were much better than their record indicated. Depth is easier to fix than talent, and we had the talent.

This "correction" is getting pretty ugly. Volume is up, which tends to mean an agreement in the direction.

Wooo, Australian Open sound is working :P, sure its recorded from last night, but at least there's finally no delay, wooo.

SteveIL: UGA will be hurting at the QB position next year. The fans were hard on Cox, but forget he was a 5th year guy and all that time was in Richt's program. He may not have played that much, but he was experienced nonetheless.

Even if they have a good defense, I expect them to struggle in 2010. The SEC is hard on young and inexperienced QBs.

LSU's Chavis got a $250,000-per-year raise out of UGA interest/offer. Wonder how much Smart got from Walmartians?

Byron, what's been your problem with the Aussie Open sound?

I've been watching hours upon hours of coverage so far, and I've yet to experience any sound issues.

But the guy was just probably homeless.

Probably?

Hey PF!

E-Bro - sound off sync with video by about 2 seconds, on more than one of our TVs. Probably our crappy TWC.

This from the AJC re Mike Thornton:

Earlier this week it was reported by some Alabama media outlets that Thornton had eliminated Auburn (probably because he canceled his visit to The Plains last weekend). Not true, he said.

“No, no, no,” he said. “I still talk to them down there. I haven’t eliminated Auburn. Auburn is still a contender on my list.”

He also said his decision is not interdependent on what Jeff Whitaker decides. Auburn and Georgia are both after the big defensive tackle from Warner Robins. “No, not at all,” Thornton said. “I love competition. I know Jeff. It’d be fun if he and I came to the same school. Who knows?”

3:05 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Thanks Comm'r. It sounds like some of the stuff I read about Thornton was wrong.

Sucks THT.

Hopefully the problem has been fixed for the rest of the tournament.

The first couple days it was fine, but then suddenly it was awful.

The rivals board is near riot wating for the next War Room :P

hey THT

3:17 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

PF, I certainly wouldn't call it likely that he was just homeless.

Anyone see the Not Top 10 on Sportscenter? #4 was an AU basketball player that went up for a dunk and managed to give himself a faceplant :(

Comm'r, I have been wondering the same thing.

Byron, I missed it, but I must admit I am curious to see it.

that's vague.

don't know if anyone else noticed but I scooped Al.com on the Keenan Allen story.

That is creepy, LGG

While that bed warming service might make sense in a warped kind of way, it would seriously creep me out.

3:24 PM  
Blogger LGGByron said...

Nothing like a random stranger warming your bed, I can see the arguments that ensue "Honest honey! She was just warming the bed!" :P

You are talking LGG It depende on the warmer me being the warmee..

Sometimes governments just amaze me. A terrorist attack on Britain is highly likely, but we have no information to suspect this? Okay!!!

Sounds like they got something but don't want to tell.

3:29 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Some of the frats at Auburn would have pledges come over in the morning to warm the toilets for the brothers who lived there. Always seemed creepy to me.

3:29 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Wow I didn't realize they would be in the bed. That is awesomely creepy. Do you get to pick the staff member?

So, is there a choice in sizes of employees. I mean, is there the 500 pound bed warmer that will show up for an extra fee?

Is there a shortage of electic blankets in England?

I just had a great talk with Cecil Newton, who is Your No. 1 recruit's father. He certainly speaks directly.

I'm gathering stuff for a Cam Newton story, so I don't want to spoil that.

Still, I'll post a few quotes momentarily. I think you'll enjoy them.

3:35 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

That could be interesting. I have seen Cam Newton referred to as a good Christian boy, which is kind of contrary to what supposedly happened at Florida.

3:36 PM  
Blogger digger4au said...

Sounds great JGT

3:37 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Side Girls said...

JayGT: Does Mr. Newton remind you at all of Mr. Irons? Just a shot in the dark (from the dark side of the moon).

Gracias.

3:42 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Side Girls said...

Steve: The article suggests that Thornton is ALL OVER the map with the crouton thing, so I don't know if what we've heard is incorrect. In fact, he's now saying he wants to check out USCal. because KIFFIN is there. Geez, talk about reasons for questioning his judgment.

3:45 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Side Girls said...

This also from the AJC (who typically only reports AU when something bad happens):

"If you haven’t noticed, Auburn is putting together a monster recruiting class for 2010. Mack’s pledge gives the Tigers 28 commitments so far, including three five-star prospects. And they’re not done yet. With five early enrollees, they have room for five more players and are in on some good ones, including five-star tailback Marcus Lattimore. Auburn’s competition for Lattimore is South Carolina. The Tigers’ class is currently ranked No. 4 in the nation by Rivals.com."

Any AU players?
