If you are seriously considering marketing, Michigan is the better choice for that. I'm in consumer packaged goods marketing and I've never even met a person from Columbia in my field. I would imagine that they exist, I just never met anyone. Full disclosure, I work in Chicago, but I did intern at J&J in New Jersey and I don't remember any Columbia people from when I was there. Harvard, Wharton, NYU yes, but not Columbia.
Tech marketing may be slightly different, but I kind of doubt that the trend would flip. I do know of a bunch of people that went into tech marketing from Michigan - primarily West Coast.
Management consulting probably doesn't matter either way other than location as noted by another poster.

Which of these are not like the others:
OSU, Michigan, Bama, LSU, ND, Texas A&M, Ole Miss & Florida?

I'm surprised that I haven't seen any mention of how after Harbaugh made his comments about Michigan academics that was later found that Stanford kept printed lists of 'easy classes' for their student athletes to take. That makes Harbaugh a hypocrite as well.

So...Denard is Mistborn - this explains a lot.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||Exactly||
|33 weeks 1 day ago||Yes. This is another reason||
Yes. This is another reason why having OSU in the opposite division sucks.
|37 weeks 22 hours ago||That's true, but last year||
That's true, but last year had the whole trash tornado thing going on. I think we should be able to score 20+ and that could easily be enough - given the new QB & receivers vs our defensive backfield.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||Anyone else think that at||
Anyone else think that at least a few teams might try to put more air under the ball and have it land just outside the goal line? That would give the coverage team more time to get down the field due to the 5 yard head start and more hang time. That might allow some teams to do better than average giving up the ball on the 25 yard line.

Well, in more practical classes (read: using the material after college), this kind of thing matters. I went to grad school for engineering at top 50 school (better than MSU) and TA'd classes that I took as an undergrad at a top 20 school (almost as good as Michigan).
There was a shocking difference in difficulty and hand-holding. In the top 20 school, you were required to figure things out on your own with very little help. If you couldn't figure it out during a lab, then you fail, so you better understand what you are doing prior to showing up for the lab and be prepared to do what you had to do. As a TA, at the top 50 school, I was 'required' to answer any question that students had, so labs became a long series of 'what do I do next' requiring no preparation or thought by the students.
Let's just say that one place teaches you to think for yourself and the other teaches you how to do what other people tell you to do and leave it at that.

Nice to see my undergrad alma mater get some love. RPI games were fun in the early 90's...
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Those guys are not exactly||
Those guys are not exactly subjective. Some of them think our game next year at Minny is a toss-up. Sure, we could lose, but there is no way that is a 50-50 game.

Need MOAR Ender's Game references!
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Sad and it will definitely||
Sad and it will definitely hurt us next year, but probably time to move on.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Additionally, part of that is||
Additionally, part of that is on the defender who gambled when he went for the ball rather than playing the man and trying to knock the ball loose. That happens a lot. When it does, it usually means the receiver is running free past the DB.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Seriously. How about the no||
Seriously. How about the no call block in the face on our DB on that 4th and 11 play that Logan ran for? He almost knocked our guy's helmet off. That would have saved the TD.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Wow, who would have thought||
Wow, who would have thought going into this year that we would win a BCS game in OT on a FG. Amazing!
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Ugh, that was Georgia-esque.||
Ugh, that was Georgia-esque. Not cool.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Hoke and Borges, do not be||
Hoke and Borges, do not be like Georgia last night!
|1 year 19 weeks ago||No way that is a catch.||
No way that is a catch. Let's see if we get screwed.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Even if he had possesion||
Even if he had possesion (which he didn't), he landed out of bounds.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Win or lose, it's going to be||
Win or lose, it's going to be tough tomorrow at work. We looked like absolute shit tonight and there is no way of arguing against that.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Might have to give Countess||
Might have to give Countess some help. He is getting destroyed tonight.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Well, we are really fortunate||
Well, we are really fortunate to be tied. Let's see if we can steal one.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||I was thinking that we should||
I was thinking that we should have used our time outs once they got in FG range. We absolutely should have.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Getting tired of this crazy||
Getting tired of this crazy generous spots as well.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||The defense has been||
The defense has been embarassing the last two games. We still have a lot more work to do. Also, the Big Ten obviously wasn't very good this year.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Borges: We are averaging||
Borges: We are averaging less than 2 yards per carry when running the ball. Please call more pass plays. Thanks.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||The defense is spent. This||
The defense is spent. This is not going to end well for us.

Damn it! Another 3rd and long given up

Yeah, the run game has been non-existent. Time for something else.
