The Midwest MBA SceneMod Note: This post was originally a comment in the discussion "Best Midwest MBA for Value" Kellogg should also be under as serious consideration as Booth, especially if tuition is a factor. Kellogg often gives students credit for courses already taken- it's the only M7 I know of that does this... 7 months 1 day
Personal Finance Part 1: Credit Card Hacking (the...Last week, @"onemanwolfpack" went over some travel hacks and discussed how he uses credit card points and airline miles to get free airfare. Being the frugal guy on WSO, I figured I would follow up with how I save money using rewards credit cards. NOTE: this strategy only works if you pay off... 9 months 20 hours
ParagraphsHello, . WSO recently eliminated the use of paragraphs in replies. If I hit return twice, WSO only honors a single *Enter*. I don't get a blank line for easy-to-read paragraphs. . Yes; I am a CS major; I am aware there is a paragraph html tag. People should not have to learn LaTeX or HTML to... 11 months 3 weeks

Columbia EMBAHey folks. One of my old friends from quant analytics at the bank I used to work for is interested in getting an MBA and eventually heading over to a consulting firm. He is having some trouble getting into FT MBA programs due to a really weak undergrad, but he's gotten an in at Columbia EMBA... 1 year 6 months
Site issues- WSO cachingHas anyone else been noticing that your recent posts are getting updated something on the order of once an hour? That if you post in a new thread, it sometimes doesn't show up immediately? That if you view a thread you've posted in, the recent indicator doesn't change? Patrick, can you... 1 year 7 months
A Plea For Common SenseDear Tea Party Congressional Representatives, In 2010, a group of conservative, libertarian and populist voters revolted against a consortium of moderate Democrats and Republicans who had slowly been chipping away at the rights of everyday individuals for roughly twenty five years. They were... 1 year 7 months
Advice for Princeton MFin ApplicantsAll, Over the past two months, I have seen several threads asking for advice on applying to Princeton Bendheim's MFin program, what the school is looking for, and many other questions. People on the forums have pointed to me because I go to school there, and they think I have some clue as to how... 1 year 8 months

Harvard Accused of Bias Against Asian-AmericansWoe is Brady. He went to an Ivy League school for undergrad, but it wasn't Harvard. He was a prop trader, but wasn't a baller. He went to an elite MBA program, but it wasn't HBS. This has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that once you get to the top 1%, there's a lot of luck... 3 min 17 sec
Urgent decision - opinions appreciatedIf you want to work in NYC, Tepper gets placements. Our fund typically takes 1-2 CMU MFEs per year (tho we are not in NYC) I am literally flying back from recruiting at Berkeley as I type this, and met a lot of really smart and experienced MFEs there. I really like finding top-notch students... 14 hours 44 min
My review of online dating sites How does Brady get banned a week ago and then get two front page posts this week? I take it you guys have lifted the ban which is great but I feel like you guys needlessly kicked the guy out of your community, which has various social and psychological ramifications for most reasonable people... 4 days 7 hours
My review of online dating sites [quote="MBAGrad2015"]I also recommend the site, It's a site that celebrates rugged masculinity, being alpha, and swallowing the red pill of truth when it comes to male-female relationships. It's run by the legendary Roosh V.[/quote] Yet another Brady dead giveaway. I am... 4 days 12 hours
Car - buy vs lease?[quote="warmpi"]Yeah. A motorcycle is fun for the weekends, but not optimal for a regular commute. You gonna wear a suit under all that gear? Probably can get a Ninja 500 for way less than $3000 though.[/quote] 1.) Get this backpack: 4 days 13 hours
Car - buy vs lease?If you plan on living in NYC, this sounds really really dumb. Parking is going to run $600/month in Manhattan and insurance is going to run $2000-3000/year. Maybe $4000-5000 if you are under 25 and have no driving history. There's really no point in getting a car and parking it in NYC unless... 4 days 13 hours
Car - buy vs lease?[quote="superandy241"]Buy a motorcycle[/quote] Bingo. First bike= Ninja 250 or 500 for $3000. Sell it the next year and get an I4 or a Duc (or maybe a Triumph Daytona). Parking = $200/month in Manhattan. Lane splitting means you are over Brooklyn Bridge or thru Holland Tunnel in 5 minutes... 4 days 19 hours
