Sumer Johal from MIT

Within 1 minute of meeting you he would let you know that his father was a poor farmer in Punjab. Later I checked his background. He apparently graduated from an expensive boarding school in Chandigarh. He had a sister and her family near Detroit and a rich uncle somewhere in Texas.

Once I was doing linear regression. He asked me to take the fitted values and regressed them again. For any undergraduate who has taken basis statistics it is known that result would not be valid. When I told him that he replied are they are in really straight line. I told him that some computation minor errors might creep in, 16.0000001 instead. He confidently told me to go ahead with the second regression.

Berkeley’s Bob Isaac was his mentor at MIT. Many times he told me that he was destined to become a billionaire.

He had an BS and MS from MIT.

When he was fired the company found out the he was lying all the time and the company has lost lots of money. More about him later. My estimate of his scores V:10%  Q:60% (generous estimate)
