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... 26 1 year 7 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... 7 1 year 9 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... 29 1 year 9 months

How much do you drink and are you... 53 1 year 11 months

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... 19 2 years 1 month
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. 2 2 years 1 month
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,... 33 2 years 2 months
