Bragging Explanation


I have had a few emails from confused people. Brady is going to the Said Business School at the University of Oxford, but he belongs to Merton College. The best way to explain this is to use "Harry Potter" terminology. Merton is Brady's Gryffindor. Harry goes to Hogwarts and belongs to the Gryffindor House. It is hard to get into Oxford, but it is even more impressive that he belongs to such an old college. Merton only excepts 4 MBA students every year and Brady made his way in. Merton College was established in 1249. Oh how I love Brady and Harry Potter. Where would I be without the two of them?

For the record, the picture in this post is NOT my college. The picture in this post is Christ Church. Most (if not all) colleges have their own dining hall. The dining hall in Christ Church was used for the dining hall in the Harry Potter movies. Merton is without question the sweetest college ever and is said to have the first Quad of any university in the world. I'll post more pictures soon.
