Skim the sections you are less familiar with and use most of your time taking the practice tests and reading the explanations of the answers. Focus on the sections with the greatest weight, e.g. Debt, Options, Muni Regs,... 3 years 5 months

From what I know and the people that work in IB there, I would say they are similar to a Houlihan Lokey, Jefferies, or Piper, etc. 3 years 5 months

If you are junior (sounds like it) go grab some traditional mall jeans at J.Crew, Guess or Diesel. They have some good styles.

While I realize that someone considering a slim-fit suit might do so to fit his shape, a well-tailored suit does not have to be a slim-fit suit. I believe a well-tailored more traditionally cut suit is better than a slim-fit suit, especially a poor-tailored or non-... 3 years 5 months
Don't buy slim fit unless you are British,...Don't buy slim fit unless you are British, Italian, or...gay? Just kidding. I would say designer outlet malls at that price or Syms at 400 Park Ave. or financial district. BB outlet seems like a good bet to get ready for the big leagues...then you can move into MTM from OTR. 3 years 5 months
