Don't delay because 67 industry insiders have already snatched up precious seats on word-of-mouth alone.

"System" students have made major financial breakthroughs, not in years, but within months - sometimes just days - after graduating. Now, in 2003, for the first time ever, the "System" is being made available to the general public after years of secrecy.
