Hypothetical here: you are a parent and your child got into two schools for undergrad. The first school is a US top 30 University out-of-state, but you have to pay full sticker price ($60k+ per year). The second school is a good in-state university and 20% the cost. If your child goes in-state, you agree to invest the residual ($50k per year) in an S&P 500 fund that releases upon graduation. What is the best outcome for your child?

I myself am quite skeptical of MBAs in a technology and skills driven world. But that being said, it's bizarre how we automatically associate "lawyer" with "high status and wealthy" when we don't do quite the same with "MBA" and consulting-related stuff. Source: WSJ
Who has taken a huge risk and failed? LinkedIn, business forums, and media love to normalize the “all-in” risks that led to reward, but who has a true failure story? How did or how are you working to come back from it? Life lessons exist in failure. Sharing these could hopefully help someone else facing the same crossroads.
