we really need a question more along the lines of "Does anyone you know that has cheated, gotten caught and punished for it?" This one leaves room for people that don't know anyone that's cheated.

The percentage is very high for those who answered "yes." I thought it would have been lower!

I guess it pays in the "short" run depending on how short.

I actually had a buddy this year who was offered a position and lost it. He basically put his last semester's GPA instead of his cumulative GPA. In the interview he mentioned that it was just the past semester. They still offered him the job...but a few weeks later they rescinded their offer.

Hi everyone
I have 2 yrs exp in an actuarial analyst position.
Very strong quant background, Ivy undergrad, 780 GMAT
Is the MEng Financial Egr a good way to break into IB?
Or am I better off going for an MBA?

Also would I start as an associate or analyst? (after a MFE)
thanks

No, but as long as you know what's on your resume, I guess it would be tough for anyone to figure out what's true and what's not true. You're only interviewing for an analyst position, not for lead researcher at NASA.

Um, yeah, that's great advice.

Yeah, when you think about it, it would be real tough to fact-check a resume. You might need a computer, or have to pay a screening firm $7.95 a pop. Who has that kind of money? Not investment banks. It's only an analyst position, after all.

Thanks for clearing that up for us.
