They decided they were going to have this huge party and rent out this plus, elegant Beverly Hills hotel. And they invited in a nationally known speaker to come in and to speak that evening. Much to their surprise, the speaker got up and began to recount how she had graduated 35 years prior to this time from Stanford Law School number 1 in her class, and applied for a job as a lawyer in their firm--only to be turned down. Instead, she was offered a job as a legal secretary, and she turned that down. She went on an did ok for herself. She is today a retired US Supreme Court Justice, Sandra Day O’ Conner. Talk about a surprise. Life is full of surprises.
