Mad Men Series FinaleAnyone catch the series finale of Mad Men? Thoughts? I was a bit underwhelmed. The last two episodes, especially the penultimate episode, were strong... this one, not so much. There was closure for most of the other characters, but Don's was a bit of a question mark. 3 months 1 week
Grant Hill Post-NBA Role in FinanceI came across this article about Grant Hill's post-NBA career on Bloomberg (link was on Dealbreaker). It's a pretty interesting read (albeit one that feels a bit like a glowing rec letter).

Cold Email / Message Networking - LinkedIn...Hi All, I did a search and there were similar posts, but it didn't quite answer my question for my case, so maybe you guys can provide some input. A firm opened up a regional office, and the head guy shares a number of linkedin connections as me (e.g., my old bosses, some connections I made... 1 year 11 months
Teens dress as Batman to catch pedophilesI remember reading about how there's a group of "superheroes" acting as vigilante crime fighters somewhere in US (I think Seattle?) and just came across this.

Search - allow for subcategory classificationsI'm not sure if this has been brought up, but I find the search results difficult to navigate through when a topic is popular. For example, I'm sure if someone wanted to read up about 'Goldman SSG' or 'bonus numbers' or 'banking salaries' they'll get a ton of results, but they might have to look... 4 years 3 months

I did really well in 1st round - got along with the associates, got all their fit, technical and theoretical questions. Got called to set up a second interview the next day and a few days later did second round with director-levels. Second round didn't go... 4 years 5 months
PE Interview prep (for next wk) - The "what...So I managed to get an interview with a PE firm for next week, and I'm hoping to fit in some interview prep this weekend. In past interviews, I think where I'm weak is answering theoretical questions like "If given company X, Y and Z, how would you go about comparing them" or things like "what... 4 years 5 months

He identified with the guy in the sharing circle because he is Don's opposite (someone that's ignored) and kindred spirit (not truly able to give / receive love), but it's incredibly open ended. We don't know... 3 months 1 week

For example: whether you're at a target or non-target school, whether you are based in Asia, or in the US, etc. So without providing more info, no one here can answer that question.

If you're in your final year already, then you've missed the boat for an internship, because a summer analyst role is typically only available to 3rd year (or earlier) students.

Typically, firms are pretty clear on the position level, because they want to make sure the candidate is on the same page. Probably worth asking them why A1 was ultimately decided,... 4 months 1 week
