I went to Black Angus tonight for dinner. It used to be a favorite of mine. Steak.. hummm. I ordered the New York Steak. It was pretty small and with lot's of fat around the edges. The quality of the meat was poor. My wife and I both agreed that it wasn't great.
Over the last couple of years since I got married, my wife and I have been to some pretty good restaurants. We went to europe for a little over a month and visited every major country and ate at places we still talk about. We went to "French Laundry" here in the Nappa Valley area, Grand Cafe in San Francisco and so. The food at these restaurants I just mentioned was so good. The steak I had at Grand Cafe was amazing.
So over dinner, we reflected on how we had been spoiled. 5-6 years ago, I thought Black Angus was great. Now... uh more like Denny's. I jokingly got upset at her for spoiling me and exposing me to great food. I was perfectly happy.. so I thought thinking Black Angus was up there in the King of Steak category.
In the world of Business Schools, I imagine that because of the stiff competition and selectivity of the schools of top candidates businesses would also be spoiled because of their exposure to amazingly gifted and educated business executives coming out of these schools. It would be hard for them to go back to Denny's quality candidates don't you think? Because of the Alumni, good schools equals amazing job opportunity potentials. So I'm still scratching my head when I read about someone who took a full scholarship at a school that was 20-25 places lower ranked instead of going to the number 2 rated school they were also accepted to. They said they had difficulty with money which I can understand. But man... I know what I would chose without even thinking much about it.
Man, that laptop had a keyboard problem, so now I have to send it back again. Won't get it back till Thursday next week. Bummer. Take care all.
