| Did I miss the boat or what?So... I converted my SA offer to FT at a BB think (CS/Barcap) and didn't think twice about recruiting FT really... but now I hear from an alum that his elite boutique (Laz/PWP/Evercore) is looking for an immediate fill for a very good group. I'm positive I could get an interview given my contact...|| 6 years 1 month|
| Why the IBD > PE > MBA > PE route?I am starting at a top tier BB, but I don't really have that burning passion for banking (or any job I can imagine for that matter) and my choice was strongly influenced by my other very motivated classmates. So now that I've broken in, it seems easy for my career to follow PE exit options and then...|| 6 years 3 months|
| Thoughts on Manhattan GMAT Prep?They seem to have a good rep, but I only just heard of them recently.
For $1500 you get books and about 3 months of class prep. Can anyone comment on the value of these classes + books? Are they just for discipline and figuring out strategies to approach certain hard questions?

I'm looking for a short-term position at a non-profit but I'm not really sure where to look or which ones to pick. Is there a list of legit nonprofits like TFA that people recognize or is the non-profit space just filled with...|| 6 years 5 months|
| How much does comp matter factor into your...I was just wondering how I should look at compensation in deciding between offers. I used to think banking was all about the moolah but realized it's more about your exit opps and learning experience. However, what if the base salary was 30k in difference?
Would you choose a top BB (60k) or top...|| 6 years 6 months|
| Suggested activities before full-time?Any good ideas on fun/productive activities before starting full-time in banking?
I'll be graduating early so I'll have about half a year where I don't have anything planned. I'm thinking I could learn VBA for Excel and totally rock at programming macros before starting but that's kinda lame so...|| 6 years 6 months|
| Thoughts on Credit Suisse?I recall about a year and a half ago people were ragging on CS, but now that they've weathered the financial crisis better than firms like Citi, people seem to have significantly more respect for them.
