Anyone have the hots for their associate?Anyone ever have a thing for him or her? Being cooped up for 16 hours in the day... needing to release tension?

Stay in my group for the people or move for...An MD from another group would like me to join her group. I do like my current group and the people are growing on me, plus my hours aren't as insane as the other group. Yet the other group has a good reputation and will lead to better exit ops.

Staying up to date with news/dealsI've been processing too many slides and crap to really see the big picture out there. How do you keep up with all the deals and economic news out there?

How much does it matter where you start out?I was doing my bi-monthly Linkedin stalking re-ranking all my connections in excel and was shocked to discover that this girl I know at a semi-semi-target happened to land a MBB gig and an IB internship at a BB the summer before. All the years I've known her I didn't really expect this to... 5 years 2 months

Career as a GMAT tutor / career advisor?This is perplexing: I was browsing Craigslist late at night and came across a Harvard ugrad in Applied Math/Econ who is offering GMAT tutoring services.

Do I have to buy expensive high fashion attire?If I buy a sub $300 suit, sub $100 dress shoes, $30 tie, and $45 dress shirt as my business attire will I be ostracized at work? I'm poor and have student loans to pay, but I feel like if I want to be one of the good old boys at work I'll have to buy some cuff-links, ferragamo shoes, ferragamo... 5 years 2 months
Is it bad that I try to steer students to IB?Whenever a student asks me for career advice and they are looking to go into business, my instant reaction is IB (or consulting).
