UT v. SMU Honors I've been accepted to both McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas and Cox School of Business for the BBA Scholars and University Honors programs at Southern Methodist University. I get the idea that I'll be a mediocre student at UT and get recruited by a decent firm after graduating... 2 years 6 months
Tips for a PWM InternThis summer I'll be interning for a private wealth management group of a BB bank for about a month. I'll be starting college the next fall as a finance major, but as of now, I don't know much about wealth management, and I'm not sure if I'm going to be working alongside an analyst or fetching... 2 years 7 months

In Texas, the oil barons are also somewhat considered old money, but their wealth is less than ten generations old, while European old money is centuries old... 2 years 2 weeks

I imagine only the cream of the crop of Business Honors students are recruited straight to Wall Street. http://www.mccombs.utexas.edu/Career/Salary-Statistics.aspx 2 years 4 months

What I meant by the "just another UT grad" is that I would be 3rd or 4th quarter at McCombs, as I barely was accepted. I would be far from a star. I do believe I have a very reasonable chance of making it to the AAMC program, and thats why I used those stats. The... 2 years 6 months

For some reason I always held the notion that Dallas is more finance-oriented than is Houston. http://www.cox.smu.edu/web/alternative-asset-management/aamc-overview Here's a link about SMU's AAMC program. The placement is... 2 years 6 months

I would be in the BBA Scholars program and I would work my tail off. Also note that UT Austin has 38,000 undergrads while SMU has only 6,000. I always hear about kids who get recruited... 2 years 6 months

I know banking is great in Dallas, but post-graduate, I'll be looking toward New York. How does a BBA Scholar compare to a McCombs student on paper? 2 years 6 months
