    If your goal is to lead your own company one day, I would have to think that staying in school for as long as possible while minimizing the amount of time spent in the real workforce is definitely the way to go.

      Hating on a 20 year old? Clearly your life didn't go the right way..

      • Guest says:

        I won't hate on the 20-year-old, but I have serious questions about an academic system that trains young people to think that the best way they can go about starting up their own business is by staying in school.

        • Guest says:

          He's going to work/try starting a company for two years and maybe go back. It's a pretty valuable put option for him. If his careers/business takes off, he obviously won't go back. If it doesn't, then he'll go back to HBS, where he can network and try again. It's pretty simple. Harvard kids aren't as dumb as you might think…

    I was just chatting with my coworker about this today at Outback steak house. Don’t remember how in the world we landed on the topic in fact, they brought it up. I do recall eating a outstanding fruit salad with cranberries on it. I digress
