Do second year IB analysts on their way out get...As a second year analyst on my way out for PE, I am concerned that I will get screwed on my second year bonus. Me and my fellow second years have already turned down our third year offers, and we are gauging how much to check out. How badly will our second year bonuses be discounted because we are... 1 year 2 months
Good non-profits/volunteer opportunities?I am picky and time-constrained so, on top of being an interesting/worthwhile organization, I am looking for a reputable (for b-school application purposes) one where I can meet some new people (for networking reasons and also to meet some nice girls to date). Ideally, there will not be not too... 1 year 4 months
Where are all the women? Been living in NYC for a while now, and I find myself going out in the same bars in the LES, and it is always a sausage fest. There are more women than men in NY, so where do they hang out? I know meatpacking artificially helps the ratio, but I don't want to hang out with a bunch of Europeans and I... 1 year 4 months
Drinking too much? I am not a heavy drinker (1 or 2 socially, 3 to 5 when I'm going out), but I drink very frequently. I go on 1 or 2 dates a week, go out Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and that's 20 drinks right there. Doctors define heavy drinking asmore than 4 a day or 14 a week. How much do you drink and are you... 1 year 6 months

Getting into sportsAs a pretty Americanized first generation immigrant, I have not really caught onto sports. What is the best way to keep up? Nightly SportsCenter? Are there blogs that serve a similar purpose (to give you recaps/highlights and previews of upcoming games?) 1 year 7 months
Checking out at workAfter you get a PE offer, you still have 1.5 years before you start. How man much can you check out without jeopardizing your job/relationships and for those who've been through it, any words of advice? My experience so far is 1. Much less facetime in the mornings and night (get in earlier... 1 year 8 months
Tinder, Hinge, Grouper, Coffee Meets BagelWhat's your experience with these apps? I feel like girls are a lot more selective than guys, and it actually takes a lot of work to search and through and meet up. 1 year 8 months
Breakups After PE RecruitingMy gf of 5 years broke up with me after I got a PE offer. I have been laser focused on my career over the past few months and have taken her for granted. Talking to a few friends, there seems to be a surprisingly high rate of breakups right after people go through PE recruiting. In retrospect,... 1 year 8 months

Same thing happened to me and 2 of my other...Same thing happened to me and 2 of my other buddies but this was after getting PE offers. It's been 7 months and I still miss her. Not as easy to move on as you think. 1 year 3 weeks
Another factor is if literally everyone in your...Another factor is if literally everyone in your group is leaving, you are at less of a relative disadvantage. Also, if the first years get wind that second year bonuses are horrible, they have much less incentive to stay the course for the 2 year program. Analysts leaving early really disrupt the... 1 year 2 months

Yes, but it's also a mini game theory problem. If...Yes, but it's also a mini game theory problem. If they screw the second years who are leaving, and the first years get wind of this (and they will of course), the first years will get their buyside offers and first year bonuses and then completely check out. They may not compensate you as well as a... 1 year 2 months

If they are not in the les or just meatpacking,...If they are not in the les or just meatpacking, where are they can you please provide more specific recommendations? I've been in nyc 7 years and no one who has lived here for more than 3 months goes to 230 5th unless they are bringing out of towners around. I'm not looking for one night stands... 1 year 4 months

Part 1 also emphasizes being proactive and borderline aggressive about finding a partner (favoring online dating) rather than dumb luck. I... 1 year 5 months
