IBM Business Insights at Harvard

This week I am at the subject class in Boston. Today we got done a little early so I got over to the main campus - pictured here at Harvard Yard. This is a great experience, the likes of which I hope someday my boys can receive. Tonight, however, I have a lot of homework!

While at Harvard, I went to their "Harvard Coop" store which is where they have a bazillion shirts and other logo merchandise. I accomplished my mission buying shirts for my boys. Since I don't "really" go to Harvard, I guess it would be pretentious for me to wear their brand, especially since they are certainly not known for their sports teams. However, buying shirts for the kids allows me to live vicariously through them, as well as encourage them to strive for making the grades to go to such an extravagantly expensive, but distinguished, school. I guess every parent wants their kids to accomplish more than they did, so I guess I'm settling into that mode myself. So while I would shudder to think about paying for that sort of college for 1 to 3 children, I would try to find a way if that challenge ever presented itself.

So I bought 3 shirts... one was Harvard Business School, one was Harvard Law School, and the other Harvard Medical School - each one carefully selected to fit the personality of one of our boys, though perhaps not their bodies due to the lack of child sizes. So for those who know Seth, Caleb, and Luke: Who gets which shirt? Post a comment here with your guess (and why), and I'll answer later with my choices.

I am thinking... and have changed my mind several times...
1) Luke - medical - from the bible
2) Caleb - business (he's a dealer type of guy)
3) Seth - law school ....
OK, but Caleb can get into (and out of anything) - so maybe
1) Caleb Law school - although he's going to have to want to read)
2) Seth - Business - b/c he's good with numbers
3) Luke - medical school

Bev voted: Seth = Medical School; Caleb = Law School; Luke = Business School

My vote is identical to Lori's first choice. Of course, it could go the other way, also as Lori suggests. Very difficult to determine.
