Scaramucci’s Advice to Harvard Law Students

However one may view Anthony Scaramucci’s current words and conduct, I think many of us appreciate the sound advice he gave to Harvard law students a few years ago.

Bravado may be Scaramucci’s calling card, but during a 2016 campus visit he advised law students to downplay their educational pedigrees and not allow their Harvard Law degrees to go to their heads. “I have one piece of advice I want all of you to take with you when you leave this school: immediately quit acting like you went to Harvard Law School,” Scaramucci said, according to an article in The Harvard Law Record. “The sooner you stop acting like a Harvard alumnus, the better off your career will be.”

I agree. Degrees from very elite college and professional schools may initially open doors for you, but then, you have to prove yourself or get washed out.
