The Loser Decision

with 2 comments

Dilbert guy tells us how his ego screwed up a great opportunity. Of course, this served as a life lesson and things worked out for him in the end.

By his analysis, I think my “winner decision” would be taking a merit scholarship at a school no one in Maine had heard of instead of going to a more respected institution and graduating with $80,000 in debt.

  2. Actually, they got to piggyback on the effort of other schools. Letters from OU and Arkansas encouraged me to look for the best school with that scholarship.
