JPM Intern E-mail BlastLooks like a JPM Summer Intern may be cutting his time at the firm a bit short after a pretty hilarious e-mail he sent out to his colleagues.

Banking BudgetI am curious how a lot of people go about spending/saving their money during their first year as a banking analyst.

Some items I might consider adding to your resume are: 1) Work on any follow-on financing rounds for portfolio companies 2) Financial modeling for new product acquisitions on behalf of a portfolio company 3) Financial... 6 months 3 weeks

I only had a 700 GMAT, so I wanted to dispel the earlier posts about needing at least a 720+ for any kind of chance. I also agree with the earlier posters regarding fit, why Columbia and why NYC for the purposes of the interview... 9 months 2 weeks

With that said, I wouldn't use that rationale as a carte blanche to write down whatever you want (doesn't seem like you were going to). Think of it much like how you would write a cover letter, explain the tasks... 1 year 9 months
