Congratulations to the Kellogg School of Management which was voted #1 in Business Week’s Biennial rankings of the top business schools. That is 2 higher than Harvard Business School (#3 – eat my shorts, nerds) and waaaaaay higher than lowly NYU-Stern School of Business (#15 – that is what you get for wait listing me, assholes).

And a personal note to NYU admissions: you can see me in Business Week magazine’s October 12th issue on the full page picture of the #1 MBA student body in the USA (and in the world according to the Economist’s rankings that came out earlier in the week -- didn’t even see you on the list, NYU!). NYU, I was looking toward to reading the review of your program, but there were so many schools reviewed before you, I got tired and watched re-runs of “Touched By An Angel” instead.

Kids, never let anybody tell you that starting a jamband record label won’t get you anywhere!
