Oil priceCan we talk about oil? It just continues to slide and I was having a pretty good conversation last night regarding it. When you consider Libya, Iraq and their capacity not really in the game. Iran with a potential nuclear deal bringing their capacity online, tons of downward pressure. Also,... 5 months 2 weeks
King ObamaAll politics aside, how can liberals or Obama supporters not fully condemn this man? Besides the fact that he decides to just act unilaterally when he can't get his way, how is basically allowing 5 million more people to stay and engage in this country a good thing for the core, Democrat base... 6 months 1 week

Bloomberg.com = TrashSo I am about at my wits end. If I had my own BB terminal I would just read the news there, but since I don't I go to the usual suspects (Bloomberg, CNBC, ZeroHedge, FinViz). Well much to my dismay, Bloomberg.com has become utterly worthless. Basically a liberal mouth piece and cake news stories... 8 months 2 weeks
Gun Control Cognitive Dissonance People who know me know that I am a moderate and someone who rarely likes to touch on delicate subjects. That being said, I saw something pop up on my Facebook feed that I just got to me. So Panera Bread has this ad going around asking everyone but law enforcement to please not bring guns into... 8 months 3 weeks

MSF?If you had your GMAT I would say you could still last minute apply. With that said, my advice would be to find a next best thing job. Look at valuation, credit analyst at a bank, anything that has related skills or something you could spin into banking. Also, keep networking. People quit early or... 2 days 18 hours

WUSTL or UVA MSF?I personally think that once you get into these top program the outcome is largely dependent on the student. That being said, I think the UVA program "tends" to place better. I think this is simply a result of UVA's brand and OCR. WUSTL students do extremely well and you aren't going to go wrong... 1 week 9 hours

Best Option for Masters in Finance[quote="monkeybusiness10"]I'm a domestic student - I figured that going to a European school would add some sort of a variety to my resume to help me stand out. My GMAT was pretty average (660) but I was mainly targeting schools that have a CFA partnership as I plan on getting my level I during the... 1 week 3 days
Best Option for Masters in FinanceAre you a domestic or European student? Cass might be ok for london, but Visa issues will be a hurdle for you in the UK. What's your GMAT? You have a random selection of schools that you've applied to. OSU, LSU and Temple are all good schools, but I see a major uphill battle getting an ER spot... 1 week 3 days
