It's Official We are In Recession.No question in my mind. How deep the recession is unknown. Definitively will not be as bad as 08. Maybe more of a early 2000 style recession. We may rally from this sell off but the seeds have been sown. What will happen, will happen and now inevitable. Any rally up is a rally to sell. 4 weeks 1 day

UNC vs Duke vs MichiganReally happy! I got into all three business schools and trying to decide. I got a 50k fellowship from UNC's Kenan-Flagler school. UNC and Mich are top notch schools but Duke is simply an elite school. Between UNC and Mich I am leaning towards UNC. Its next to Duke, so they will get the same firms... 10 months 1 day

They do some buyside advisory on acquisitions (company A buys a portion of company B), but mostly PIPE financing, private placement type deals.

Can anyone else think of a college with a student...Can anyone else think of a college with a student body over 57,000?? Because we might have to reach out to Guinness World Records to open up a new entry because I cannot think of a school with a bigger student body. By next year NYU will have over 60k students in it. 3 weeks 12 hours
Well there is more underneath the surface. Duke...Well there is more underneath the surface. Duke is also significantly better research school than UVA.

UChicago is top 3, worst case, top 5, undergrad. In the B-school ranking, its top 1-3, 100%, I would argue 1 or 2, all depending on how much you love Harvard.
