iBanking - Slim fit: how slim is too slim?[quote="JJSaurel"]imo TM Lewin >>>>> CT for shirts. DOn't buy suits there though (neither at CT). Then that's for London, maybe different tastes prevail in the US[/quote] Where would you recommend buying suits in London? 2 days 2 hours
What's the best practice for this?Probably done by the presentation guys anyway. This is exactly the job that should be outsourced to them. There's no use in spending an hour formatting some stupid boxes or slides in general. 2 days 2 hours
Is it possible to survive in London with £16K a...Exactly. 16k is ok for a year or so (f.e. assuming you are a student), but that's pretty much it. 4 days 11 hours

Add another small stuff... 4 days 12 hours

LSE MsC in Financial Economics --> FT BB IBD...These are all top notch programs and all of them place pretty similar. None of them will hold you back in any way. 1 week 2 days
HF Analyst as a Second Job?It's just a retarded idea. Decide on what you want to do in the future and don't think of simultaneously trading securities and breeding fungi cultures in a lab. If you love to trade, then do it on the side with your own money, but being a full time HF analyst won't work 1 week 3 days
LSE MsC in Financial Economics --> FT BB IBD...Both programs (FE/A&F) place well into BB/EB IBD. Your lack of work permit (assuming you are American) might be the bigger problem. 1 week 3 days
