<<My boss went to a private university in St. Louis for his undergraduate studies, and also went to a private university for an MBA he did not complete.

Even if I never get a raise (I am currently at $42k a year), I will retire before my boss b/c I don't have $100,000 in student loans hanging over my head like my boss does (well, that and he leases his automobiles). I'm willing to bet that the university I attended has the better reputation also.>>

Interestingly enough, I went to the California public university with the best reputation (U.C. Berkeley) as an undergraduate as well as the most prestigious private university in St. Louis (Washington U.) for graduate school.

I am very glad I did it that way rather than the reverse.
