Perhaps there is a lag in online real estate estimates. Given there is a lag, there is an arbitrage window to make some money.

Congrats J on the little one! ☺️ May everything go smoothly. Will be the most amazing experience ever! Most fun will be to not tell anybody up to ~8 months and see colleagues squirm to try and say something!

Wait only $100,000? Elevator mechanics in San Francisco make $235,000+. Gotta come out here. So many great jobs to do without a degree!

Good point. But your survivors will be pissed for you! Or maybe they’ll be happy about the inheritance. Amazing how our Social Security payments go back to the government if we die without a spouse or children.

Well done! Hope you made a lot of money. I would love to see some examples of SEO veterans crushing it with their SEO-optimized websites. It would be great to learn from you guys. Thx!

No brainer. I saw my kids study and prepare their hearts out and not get into a top 20 school. USA is too competitive. Harvard of Canada all the way! The Princeton of Canada ain’t bad too.

Cool. Which ones and what are their sites? I’d love to check them out and learn more. Always good to put what one teaches into practice, or else there’s no point. Thx

Why don’t SEO experts deploy their expertise and just create their own SEO-optimized website and make tons of money? Wouldn’t that be easier, more profitable, and logical?

Everybody gets a trophy in Canada! Harvard University has a 5% acceptance rate. The Harvard of Canada has a 42% acceptance rate, yet employers treat graduates the same. Be smart. Take advantage!

Does HR love employees though? I agree with your statement.

Cool. Seems to have worked out for you. So far, every respondent who scored well on the SATs in my informal poll has not gone to a top 20 school due to cost, rejection, or lack of awareness/belief.

Never doubt yourself. Look how much money there is for the taking. Even if you get swept in a playoff series and shoot poorly, you can be richly rewarded. Stop feeling like you don’t deserve the max because you do!

Do you think passing on Harvard, Yale, Penn etc was a wise move in retrospect? What would you advise your kid to do if s/he faced the same situation?

Good job! if I had to take the SAT in Mandarin or Spanish, I wouldn't do well either. If only I learned SAT words like "regatta" and "au pair" I could have score so much higher. Alas, only my rich friends could relate to the SAT test creators.

Did you go to W&M as well? I forget. Well done if so. I never bothered to apply to the Ivies b/c I figured I had no shot and I didn't want to spend the application money. If I had endless money, I probably would have applied to 10-20 schools why not. Instead, I applied to 5.

Not bad. Did you maximize a good SAT score by going to a top 25 school with scholarships?
