You never met up with some people to collaborate on assignments in college? Aren't you SUPPOSED to do that? Hell, my senior year my roommates and I were all in the business school and we coordinated classes for the purpose of sharing work and books.

The only economics degree she could possibly have must have the word 'Home' in front of it.

Listening to her question, or attempt to question, the CEO of Wells Fargo was akin to a 6 year old repeatedly asking 'Why?' when a parent has told them something they just simply cannot understand.

Painful.

Well my sister got a masters in Accounting, just like my friend was doing. It wasn’t suppose to be group effort it was basically one person does the homework and all copy. I studied mechanical engineering and there was only a limited number of group assignments. There is a different from group work and just copying work.

Not being able to stay focused is a sign of ADHD.

Perhaps you should ask your mommy for some Ritalin

I've told this story before - when I was managing the Manufacturing Engineering dept of a company, I hired a couple of newly-graduated BSEEs

I fired both of 'em within a month because, while they may have been able to pass the required tests, they didn't know ****

Apparently it wasn't from knowing anything about economics.

He was already a multi-billionaire at 45. What was Obongo? And what were YOU? And Trump became President on his OWN. Did Obongo do it on his own or because of others?

Not to rain on the daily AOC bashing, but Boston University is a very good school. In 2007 Ocasio-Cortez won a prize at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in microbiology, so she probably wasn't that bad of a high school student and likely had scholarships to attend BU like most students do at private universities. Much like our current president, we can't see her high school transcripts or test scores. Maybe she is a stable genius too.

I guess that's why she was working as a bartender. Microbiology and all

She had to bartend because she lost her position selling corn dogs because she couldn't show up for work on time.

And she was a bartender making a reported $26,000 (+ "tips" ) 1.5 years ago. Is that brilliant? Does that show the kind of drive that justifies $50,000+ tuition per year?

She clearly didn't get through college on a dancing scholarship...
