New story angle

Browder and Elizabeth Warren have something in common...

According to his book, it was during his time at Bain that he came up with the notion to use his grandfather’s story as a means to get into a top rated business school,

“But then it dawned on me.  My colleagues may all have had better resumes, but who else was the grandson of the leader of the Communist Party of the United States? No one else, that’s who…I applied to two schools, Harvard and Stanford, and told them my grandfather’s story…”


And yes, it appears that Browder has been using his grandfather’s story for like thirty years now.  As for the top rated business school, Stanford ate his story up like a kid with a chocolate bar which probably led Browder to think it was a great idea to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps too,
