Loud Thinking: Challenging life, software, and media
Sunday, July 29, 2001 @ 16:57 | Challenge?

Sentenced to five years of reading books and doing projects

I recieved my letter of admission from the Copenhagen Business School yesterday. Though I'm of course pretty happy, it didn't come as much of a surprise. An insider had already told me about the school's stellar predicting skills: Increasing capacity with 30% in a year with a 35% drop in applicans. Everyone who applied basicly got in. It takes a little bit of the accomplishment out of it.

Let's just hope that the 35% drop is due to all the gold diggers who got scared when they heard about the Internet industry going bust. Good riddance, then.

Anyway, I'm going to spend half of the next five years getting acquainted with Michael Porter's Five Forces Model and other economic theories, and the other half learning (more) about Java, databases, and nifty tech stuff like that. When I'm done I'll get to call myself a cand.merc.dat graduate. That's not til 2006, though. I can't even grasp the concept of that far in the future.

But man am I excited. The introduction week is less than a month away. Not much time to turn my spending habits from that of a full-time worker's salery into that of a students. Yoinks. But who cares? It's at least not like I have to pay to tuition like those poor American kids. It's time like these when living in a country where everyone's paying 50% in taxes feels great.
