Would you stay on after 2 years if you could?If you were asked to stay on with your PE/VC firm after your 2 year stint, would you? (As opposed to going back to bschool.) I've always thought I would go to bschool then come back to the industry, but lately I've talked to quite a few individuals who left the firm they were with (some were... 11 months 2 weeks
GMATClub vs. HereI started preparing for my GMAT a few weeks ago and went on GMATclub.com. I must say I'm impressed by how supportive the forums are! Everyday some stupid noob goes on and asks, "How can I get a 770 on the GMAT"" and the moderators + members point them out to the same links, give the same advice,... 5 years 1 month

Top sector for 2013?I'm actually curious to hear all your thoughts on this. I've invested in energy and healthcare before but have since exited those industries (well, more like started to dabble to a bunch of other ones). It seems like both of them have had years of talks on how it'll be the next best thing, but face... 2 years 5 months
CFO vs IB, just finished schoolAgree with CompBanker - be careful of this opportunity. Small firms tend to throw titles around very generously because they can't afford to with compensation. I worked in VC and saw a lot of pitches - some of the backgrounds of the executives are pretty unimpressive. Simply put, anyone can start a... 2 years 5 months

answering questions about RE asset managementWhat role do people usually go into post MBA if they don't have prior real estate experience? I previously worked in growth investing (but not in RE) and now at a top MBA - most of my skills are on the investing side and not industry.
