Deloitte S&O Federal Consultant vs. Capital...Agree with the first comment - unless you plan to go directly into a top MBA program after a few years, Federal experience can be a death spiral, and it doesn't provide you any real advantage to actually getting into one of those programs (unless you're building windmills in Cameroon with DOE or... 3 months 1 week
B.S. in Accounting - Will I be able to find a job...Pretty perfect response there. The only thing I’d is that you should understand if you go Big 4 / regional firm audit you will most likely be traveling during the week and only in NYC on the weekends. Or you’ll be driving all over Jersey or Long Island during the week. If you want to stay in the... 3 months 4 weeks
Slim Fit Suit = Tight Nutsack Space?I have this problem. Every time I sit down in a slim suit I rock a split formation in which my righty bulges to the right of the seam and my lefty protrudes on the left, and my miserable little chode just rolls with the tide. It’s terribly uncomfortable, and I can only imagine how unsightly it is... 4 months 14 hours
Coffee Is For Closers Love this post. Nailed it, too - I absolutely was an entitlement baby until the professional world kicked my teeth in my first year. I quickly realized how truly insignificant my college accomplishments were. 4 months 6 days
Deloitte (federal) or IBM (federal) or accenture...No, the first poster is correct: the Federal environment is awful, and you should avoid it like Ebola, or Michael Jackson’s basement – whichever drives the point more effectively. I worked in Deloitte Federal for 2 years, and I could not get out quickly enough. The fact that some Kellogg grads got... 7 months 1 week
GMAT prediction based off of SAT scoresYou’re looking at 540 – 580, best case . . . Really? Just study intensely and take the thing instead of seeking blog-based kudos for being in the academic “1%.” Life Spoiler Alert: it doesn’t matter what you score on tests if no one likes you. 9 months 1 week
Greetings from ChicagoSo Aleksey Vayner isn't dead . . . Awesome. 1 year 1 month
WorkAgree with those above. I would try to avoid it if at all possible. I routinely gave my boss the D my second year. I was very lucky because it worked well and ended quietly; however, it could have very easily been disasterous for both of us. 1 year 2 months
Chicago - where should I live?I would stay away from the areas you mention; the Loop seems cool at first but sucks in quite a hurry. Agree with the first two comments - you won't go wrong with the north side neighborhoods like Lincoln Park, Lakeview or even Wrigleyville (the last if you are under 24 years old). Access to... 1 year 2 months
CFA Results Not feeling well about it. An L2 fail will undoubtedly suck, but I’m ready to get back on the horse and take the miserable thing next year. I am dreading, however, breaking the news to the group of friends and family members who made asinine comments such as, “Dude – you’re going to pass; you’... 1 year 10 months
