I just came from the worst grad school interview ever. I'll finish my undergraduates in summer and am currently applying to grad schools.
I'm also, independently from that, met my boyfriend a few weeks ago and he took me to an event where I happened to meet one of the admissions officers.
So I've had an interview today with him. I thought it went fairly well actually, until the very end. He was like "well your CV look promising, but I hope you understand that our programs are very competetive... clearly though a girl like you can date a powerful man without an elite education "
I didn't even say anything to that, I didn't know what? He makes it sound like I'm some kind hooker.
I met my boyfriend at a hockey game. I know makes good money and he also told him that he published a book. So apparently he is kinda known in the academia of economics. But most people wouldn't know him. I didn't at least and I'm not dating him for his money or status. That's really offensive. What would make someone think it's OK to say that?
Should I like complain with the University? Should I even tell my boyfriend about it?

The guy sounds like a jerk and I have little respect for him, but I would have even less respect for a woman who tried to ruin that guy's career out of spite or vindictiveness for what he said.1
