Jim Lincoln WG69 wrote in with the following update: “I arrived at Wharton in 1967 as an active-duty Army officer. There were about 15 of us there as active-duty military, and we were in an unusual position compared to all the other students. We were not just older, but our military status (and short hair!) made us stand out to some extent. Most of us had to study very hard! We had been out of school for several years and were far from academically tuned. I will never forget when the dean called me in and said, bluntly, ‘You have to maintain a B average or you are out!’ During the rest of my career, which lasted until 1988, the MBA helped me immensely, as I was made the manager of several multimillion-dollar military programs. After retirement, I worked in the defense industry for another 15 years, advising on military contracts and weapons programs, and the MBA allowed me to stand out! So thank you, Wharton!”
