Hope this helps. Summer Analyst Eligibility • The SA position is... 4 months 4 weeks
Georgetown University MSF Program - In PersonHey guys, just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Just spoke with the program and they are going to be rolling out a flex option for students. There will still be the remote option for those working around the country, but there will also now be an on campus option for those local or wanting to go... 6 months 1 week
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,... 11 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... 1 year 5 days

TNA in NYCHey guys, I'm up at the Hilton on 53rd repping the MSF at the QS World Grad School Tour. Anyone want to get a drink or say hi just PM me. 1 year 2 months = 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, has become utterly worthless. Basically a liberal mouth piece and cake news stories... 1 year 2 months
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... 1 year 2 months

You talk to them and tell them about your 540 gmat score and I guarantee they will either bluntly or delicately tell you to retake your GMAT or that you'd most likely not be able to get in.
