Overheard: Wharton students

Student 1 - A typical overconfident b-school student.
Student 2 - A lanky b-school student with shaggy blond hair and pimples.

Student 1: So, you were at a hedge fund over the summer, right? [Envious]
Student 2: Well, the thing is, I would've had to split my time. You know, I just felt it would take too much from all the other things in my life.
Student 1: Wait, so you didn't take the job?!?
Student 2: No. I mean, a lot of things happened this summer. I really had a lot of eye-opening experiences.
Student 1: [Still baffled that he didn't take the hedge fund internship]
Student 2: I mean, life-changing. I became a Calvinist.

OK, I took some liberties and shortened that up a lot. They were really dragging it out. But what I want to know is this: who has a revelation or epiphany, and chooses Calvinism?
