    It's the best schools for start up business culture. Pretty cool to see CU in the Top 20.

    From the Pac-12:

    Stanford #1
    Cal #3
    UCLA #5
    Colorado #19
    USC #22
    Washington #43

    Also, the state of Colorado has a lot to be proud of:

    Besides CU at #19, we've got DU at #27 and CSU at #49.

    Not surprising - they teach the entitlement culture there anyway. Why on Earth would anyone want to do anything for themselves????

    Harvard kids manage investment funds set up using their dads' money along with some of their dads' friends. They then either invest in companies started by the smart kids they remember from their prep school days who went to MIT or purchase healthy start-up companies that have achieved a base of at least $10 million in sales, pretend to manage them for a while, and then flip them following some additional growth.

    Sounds about right - hence no entrepreneurial desire.
    Either that or they write **** for the law review and get anointed Dear Leader of the United States. I am now forever ****ed.

    Yes. Cultures are different. Yale and Cornell, in particular, have a lot of rich Republican kids whose parents expect them to take their stake and build a successful company because it's a family tradition. Princeton is kind of a brainy undergrad environment heavy on the sciences. I don't know Brown well.

    Surprised to see CU ahead of u$c since there's so much bantering about the quality of their business program.
