Scathing Online Schoolmarm Says…

… this is excellent writing. Not the initial email from the student. The initial email’s okay, but nothing special.

Galloway’s response. Read that one.

    Wow, not just a B-school professor who can write, but a *brand strategy* guy who can write…generally there seems to be more than the usual verbal fog surrounding such individuals.

  2. Margaret Soltan Says:

    I know – I said to Mr UD this morning – “I’m always putting down the B-school boys… I take it all back.”

    My favorite remark from the comments section:

    “I have no words for the awesomeness that is Galloway’s response.”

  4. Margaret Soltan Says:

    LOL. I liked that one too.

    My favorite bit from the piece:

    I hope the lottery winner that is your recently crowned Monday evening Professor is teaching Judgement and Decision Making or Critical Thinking.

    Really? I’m apparently in the minority on this one–the entire rest of the internet seems to love it–but I thought that as soon as he stopped describing the incident and started giving the student advice it got pretty dreadful. If a student sent me an email like that I probably wouldn’t say anything about it, but inwardly I’d hope they grew out of that internet style before they started writing for business. I mean, seriously, how many ellipses does one piece of writing need?

  6. Margaret Soltan Says:

    I agree, Christopher — the weakest part is the end when he starts dispensing advice. The piece is not without fault.

  7. Galloway from those ellipses, sir. « Perplexed with Narrow Passages Says:

    […] But apparently most people do not agree with me. […]

  8. Bill Gleason Says:

    but the advice was good…

  9. Ah, entitlement « Eric Edberg Says:

    […] Ah, entitlement Jump to Comments Show up to a class for which you’re not registered an hour after it begins, be sent away by the professor, write him an email in complaint, and what would you expect to happen?  Evidently not this, but it sure makes for fun reading.  (Hat tip to University Diaries.)
