"Here are some of the things you could buy with two hundred thousand dollars."

Dan Gilmore, Full-time MBA Class of 2014

  • Four perfectly nice weddings, or basically up to 20 perfectly nice weddings if you’re comfortable thinking creatively. (More than 20 and you’re probably going to have to make some noticeable concessions.)
  • 3.33 years of a Harvard education (you could probably push it to four if you studied abroad in some terrible backwater for a semester or year on the super-cheap).
  • A ticket for every resident of Western Springs, Illinois to see One Direction’s This Is Us 3D at AMC Empire 25 in Times Square (service charge included).
  • A loyal shelter dog to lick away your tears, and two walks a day for the rest of her natural life from the Upper East Side’s Puptopia.
  • IVF 16 times. 16. Times.
  • You could release 3,200 turtledoves at the same time. Visualize it.
  • 44,444 pints of Americone Dream from the bodega at the corner of Ninth and Second.
  • 15 years, 4 months, and two weeks of therapy with my old guy if you don’t have insurance.
  • You could drop your 64GB iPhone 5s in the toilet 236 times and flush.
  • You could pay your electric bill at August prices for 169 years.
  • A download of Miley Cyrus’s Wrecking Ball for every resident of Lancaster, California.
  • A baby unicorn.
