Hardest brainteaser ever?More mathy brainteasers! So if A^n+B^n=C^n , we all know there are many cases for n=2 (right triangles...) but for n>2, there are no solutions. Prove it. Anyone that knows anything about math/this problem: don't say anything. Just curious as to how people approach this problem/whether it... 3 years 8 months
A much harder Brain Teaser with a non-...Inspired by the other brain teaser thread (and surprised by how easy it was), I wanted to introduce this conceptually/semantically simpler, but much more difficult brain teaser. Once the answer is revealed, there's really nothing that can be argued about it, trust me. That's not to say that the... 3 years 8 months
Part time summer internships?Hey guys, I really want to take a few summer courses this coming summer (sophomore summer, not junior), and I was wondering whether boutique banks, PWM places/any other finance related jobs generally allow for part time positions over the summer. I don't want to hear anything about "if you... 3 years 9 months

Your thoughts on higher educationI recently had an argument with my friend about college curricula. I was defending the merits of a solid liberal arts-based core, while he believed that most of the classes he was being forced to take were a waste of time. I told him that he did not deserve to be in college, thinking like that,... 4 years 6 months
Interesting Article on the "New Global Elite...An insightful article from the Atlantic. Not fascinating, but a good read that kills a fair amount of time at work :P The New Global Elite "F. Scott Fitzgerald was right when he declared the rich different from you and me. But today’s super-rich are also different from yesterday’s: more... 4 years 7 months
Which of these jobs would be better?Hey guys, I have the option of taking two jobs my freshman summer: 1. BoA Merrill Lynch Global Wealth Management - I've done this before.

Varsity AthleticsI know being a Varsity athlete helps to a degree, but I was wondering whether being, say, one of the better teams in a competitive league helps your chances. I'm currently in one of the top 5 rowing teams in the nation and was wondering whether this would be more impressive than your run of the... 4 years 7 months
Internships as a Sophmore?Are there any BB/MM investment banking divisions known for recruiting strong sophmore candidates (high gpa, good leadership positions already, 2 Summers PWM experience, etc.)? Or do sophmores who get banking internships almost only get them through networking? Should I just try my luck cold... 4 years 7 months

Why all of these complicated arguments about...Why all of these complicated arguments about whether it is good for you in the long run or not? It seems pretty self-evident that cheating, in most situations, is unethical. Therefore, you shouldn't do it, by the definition of "ethical." Of course, people do a lot of unethical things to get... 2 years 2 months

Some of them lift, some of them run. Some girls like muscles, some don't. There are plenty of douchey things people do, is caring about muscles really a question... 3 years 1 month

I guess that statement still stands if I just leave the post at that.... so I'll just add a few things: if you think that every single person against banking is just jealous you... 3 years 2 months

All I see here is bankers/people who want to be...All I see here is bankers/people who want to be bankers trying to justify how fulfilling banking is when it's not. 99% of office jobs aren't that fulfilling, people just do them for the money. And there's nothing wrong with that. It's hard to always just go for something you love. Like I'd love... 3 years 4 months
