I'm from over the pond (England), and have recently had my A level results. I missed my offer for an elite London Uni by 2 marks, and generally feel that I did poorly (I thought I would exceed their offer by several grade so was doubly crushed). In the end I received ABB in Economics, Maths and Phy...

I am about 2 months in and have found myself seriously debating quitting without finishing my 2 year analyst stint. It's not even about the hours- I wake up feeling pretty unfulfilled, unhappy, and I spend all day doing nothing that matters at all. On top of that, the associate is a stuck-up jerk an...

In the old days many people perceived joining Wall Street was a golden ticket. They figured if you put your head down and work hard your career can be whatever you want it to be. Some thought they would make their money and be done in their thirties or forties. Others imagined they would keep ascend...

After reading through two threads (2014 and 2010) without a resolution, I hoped to find some additional clarity from anyone that has heard of similar experiences. During an act of self-defense, a piece of property was damaged and I was at the time of the incident blamed on the scene (mainly due to t...

I find it kind of odd that a school with the selectivity...

Hi guys, I am a junior wishing to land a summer internship in one of the Bulge Brackets. I interned in a PE firm this past summer, but I was wondering how I can connect my PE internship experience with my passion in investment banking? I had done only one deal that required multiple valuation during...

Just started a FT gig at a top MM IB this past June (think William Blair, HL, Raymond James, etc.) and I don't feel like I've been doing much at all. It's not like I've screwed up on a project and no one trusts me with work - it seems like there just isn't a whole lot of work to go around right now....
