"X Country Will Have ## Million in the...Stupid question; how do they come up with such an exact number? and isn't the number generally dependent on one major variable (in Asia Pacific's case China's continued growth between 4% to 7% per year) for countries that tout statistics like that? 8 months 2 weeks
Tell me if I'm wrongI know it's a very (very) broad generalization (as industry specifics would magnify the accuracy or inaccuracy of this statement), but shoot it down if you find any holes in the logic: It's better to look for an opportunity in an industry where market share is quite consolidated as opposed to... 8 months 3 weeks
Family business questionHad a long talk with a close friend who is thinking of going to business school and he brought up the topic of certain things in his background that business schools might scoff at. He works for one of the largest companies in the world (Oil... 8 months 3 weeks

University-hosted Finance ConferencesThese are usually really strange. It feels like the attendees are usually there by force, not like they're interested in getting to know students. What's the best way to network at such university-hosted events? 1 year 10 months

And it depends on the courses you did take as well as your trend. An upward trend is obviously better than the other way around; most admissions readers are willing to... 8 months 3 weeks

His GPA is above a 3.0 (engineering), which I assume is acceptable, no? and yes, I agree with @CRE that you may be the person in question.

I think admissions will worry more about an only-OK GPA, which... 8 months 3 weeks
