  3. I haven't kept in touch with them. And it'd probably take another half a decade to a decade to answer that.

  4. Not to be arrogant, but it might be myself. When my cohort actually graduates, this will get a bit more interesting though; for now, all one can ask is whether they're at a good school, doing well, and achieving good job prospects.

  5. Probably my buddy who became a pro skateboarder.

  6. A friend of mine has been interning at wall street during the summers. He's self made; no family connections. Runs a small capital firm on the side while studying and makes a killing.

  7. I don't know...

    There are some women I know who have gone into the job market, attend business conferences, etc. Some may see them as successful, but I think it all just sounds very dull.

    I know a spoken word artist who's fairly influential among her peers, but if you actually listen to her you'd realize that she's an idiot who just likes to complain a lot about male privilege using lots of multisyllabic postmodern social science buzzwords that make no sense.

  8. Objectively speaking, me. I'm studying in a program with good job and grad school prospects. I've validated my success by working at top companies in Silicone Valley, making a 6 figures co-op salary. This may change in a year or so, when everyone else graduates and moves onto the next stage of their lives.

  9. Probably me. My class was about 50 individuals. I'm the only one with any work experience, money, and likely job offers for that matter. They're all graduating this year with maybe a summer job or two... and me, well, I guess I'll be going to San Francisco to try to hook up with that gold rush. :D

  10. My friend who started working in retail at 16. He's had a lot of mobility within the industry and has worked his way up to store manager now. And I'm still looking to get my foot in the door for a junior position.
