Ok, I have been an avid user / reader for a long time, and I think at the end of the day, this site is a great site. An incredible resource and a tour de force for all of us. And I'd like to say "hats off" to Patrick and all the key and positive posters on the site. You've really helped me in some key thought processes and advanced my thinking. I think the site has helped others more, as I already had a good clue.

But, all in all, I don't see enough people giving props to Patrick and WSO in general, so here is a huge fucking shout out and I'd like to see people pile on with praise to all involved in making this a great site and keeping it that way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fuck all the shitters and trolls out there who try to ruin what it a great site. Power to the great posters and moderators and to Patrick himself who is a god to many investment bankers and would be investment bankers of all shapes and sizes!!!

Keep up the good work!

    Yes, Patrick has done a great service by creating this site. Every other day it seems that we see another person breaking in where they otherwise would not have. Thanks Patrick!

    If patrick gave me his address I'd mail him a real banana.

    I'm talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing.

    Make sure you dip it in silver first.

    Major props Patrick, this website is an invaluable resource and should be recommended way before Vault guides.

    Well, thankfully you like the other site, otherwise the gift would be less than flattering, lol.

    Congrats to Patrick. Hopefully he is making some money from the site and if not, well, at least he will sleep easy at night knowing he's helped countless people get into a field that will make them contemplate suicide everynight for the next 2 years...but then eventually be thankful and happy. It all works out in the end.

    Regards

    OP hit it right on the head... you've done an awesome job on the site Patrick... thanks for all your hard work, patience, and advice... this forum has provided answers throughout the recruiting process that would be very difficult and tedious to procure through other methods, so the acknowledgment is heartfelt...

    Thanks also to all the experienced Monkeys and Certified Users out there giving balanced and well-vetted advice, I aim follow your example and pay it forward...

    Agreed. Have found it to be a great resource for a while now. I feel like the quality of the content has improved nicely over the last couple of years (though there's definitely still some room for improvement!). Also curious to know if it's profitable.

    Salute to everyone teaming up and making this a great site. Wish there was something like this for the more senior PE guys.

    I'm going to ignore all the surely serious things written above simply to say the first thing I thought of when seeing the title was Scooby Dooby Doo! That is all.

    Jack: They're all former investment bankers who were laid off from that economic crisis that Nancy Pelosi caused. They have zero real world skills, but God they work hard.

    What does Scooby Dooby Doo have to do with anything, just curious?
