Can give internship adviceI have been a long time reader of these forums - since college has started, really. It has helped me tremendously, and I really would like to give back. This past summer I summered at a top bank (GS,MS) and got an offer to return, which I accepted. The SA season doesn't start for a while, but I... 4 years 2 months

Second Year IB Analyst Answering Questions I wasnt at an MM, so I am not 100% sure, but I imagine it is the same route. Talk to headhunters and hopefully they place you in interviews.

Second Year IB Analyst Answering QuestionsHonestly, every day is different. In at 7-730 and out 5-7 and no weekends in the office.

Beyond that though, I am not just talking about top analysts in the groups - I am talking about the top groups alltogether. I know many at GS/MS/BX and... 2 years 3 months
Summer 2014 Pre-MBA Associate RecruitingIt definitely is an interesting situation. On the one hand, the analysts being interviewed have more experience and there is less bullshit on the other, the vast majority of top kids I know in my class were done before the MF process started. There were a few KKR or bust types that held out, but... 2 years 3 months

How to Save Your WeekendThis is one of the most epic analyst moves I have ever heard. I wish more people had balls for this kind of thing. Definitely plan on trolling hard as fuck in the remaining few months of this shit. [quote=rufiolove][quote=SanityCheck] 6. Flip shit. I don't recommend this most of the time but... 2 years 3 months
