    No. Duke is wildly overrated. They are roughly equivalent to schools like Virginia and UNC. They just have enormous dollars behind them to shine up the image, and there is a desperate need to find some southern private school that does not suck. It's all just hype.

    I'm more impressed by UT-Austin than Duke. Maybe even Vandy.

          Duke med and law are very good. Professional schools are a completely different story.

            You wouldn’t hire someone based solely on where they went to school? For real?

              I think you know what he meant. He wouldn't consider it particularly a positive.

              For example, if I have an applicant for a STEM position who went to MIT or Cal Tech, hell yes that is a positive.

                When I was hiring for entry level programming positions I wouldn't consider a candidate from Miami as their program was business focused not technical focused. We all knew that going in so any resume from a Miami kid applying for an entry level technical role was rejected outright. However, we hired a ton of business analysts from Miami. But beyond entry level positions I rarely, if ever, considered where they went to school.

                I had one personal exception to rules like that. An Eagle Scout always got a look.

                  Yes. Correct. For the vast vast majority of schools I'd give them an interview. Some of the better engineers I know went to Nebraska, Iowa state, and (ugh) north *mumble mumble*

                  There are just schools that get a much higher preference, like Kepler said

                  edit: I'm talking for entry level. Beyond five years, school doesn't matter.

                          I didn't know what he meant. "I don't know that I'd hire an undergrad from Duke" didn't readily translate into "I would hire an undergrad from Duke, but attending Duke doesn't mean s/he's automatically hired" for me. Now that it's been fleshed out more, I understand. That said, there are certain professions where what school you attended doesn't matter whatsoever.

                              CNBC reported that Iger said the ad-revenue for streaming is starting to outgrow the revenue from traditional TV advertising. So, despite losing subscribers, they're raking in more from those who subscribe to the cheaper ad-supported model.

                              They basically did in a couple years what took cable TV decades to do: get people to pay a premium and still show them ads. So he needs the strikes to end soon so he can pump out mid level media.


                              He can't step on rakes fast enough when pivoting.

                                Streaming sucks. It was nice at one point as a supplement to cable but the direction everything is going is not good. Sports fans are going to get completely screwed.
