Finance podcasts?Any of you know of any good finance podcasts? There's Slate Money, FT's Banking Weekly (though it's super focused on EU banks), Bloomberg's Masters in Business. Anything else? To give you a sense of my taste, I'm a big fan of Felix Salmon, EDM, Joe Weisenthal, and of course Matt Levine (I... 5 months 1 week
Quantitative Skills + MBB = ???Hi all, I'm graduating with a pair of (undergraduate) STEM degrees and starting at MBB this summer. Are there career paths that make sense for someone with scientific literacy, quantitative skills, and experience at MBB? I really have no idea where I want to be in 3-5 years, and I'm... 3 years 2 months

Choosing between McKinsey, Bain, and BCG?What city are you in? Relative strengths/attractiveness of clients differ a lot by city (and country). [Actually, don't tell us but consider the question].

Someone PLEASE Talk Me Out of Taking the LSAT/...Reading legal documents is by far the most boring thing I occasionally do on the job. Writing those documents all day must be fucking terrible. 8 months 2 weeks
Dropping my fraternity- Put on resume? Totally agree with Dingdong. 1) Your leadership role in your fraternity is not impressive at all. I don't care. Fraternity leadership has literally never come up as a plus for any of the 1000s of candidates we've screened over the years. 2) There is considerable downside risk. You do not want to be... 8 months 3 weeks
Profit Dollars vs. Profit MarginsYou have to get comfortable with the risks either scenario comes with. In the low margin situation, a little change in price or cost can have a big impact on profitability (up or down...).
