Looking for Case Practice Partners AsapHi All, I'm currently at a non-target uni and have coursework and professional experience focused around finance. I'm interested in eventually transitioning into strategy consulting (or analytics) and am looking for a few case partners to practice with. I'm very eager to improve my skills and I'... 3 months 2 days
What's harder? FT vs. LateralHey guys, It seems like most FT analysts at banks and asset management firms come from summer internships. I've also seen laterals to the very same firms at the analyst level (with 1-3 years of previous work experience) but very few analysts who started FT straight from school without having... 4 months 3 days
Interviewer not responding to scheduling emailHey guys, I got an email from a bank to schedule a time to interview for an IB analyst job. I listed out several convenient times and replied to it. NO response for 4 days so I send a follow up. No response for another 4 days so I send another followup. Interviewer responds 3 days after second... 4 months 5 days

Housing RoommatesHow many roommates would you have max for an apartment either for living off campus while in college, participating in an internship or working FT? More than 2 people sharing the same bathroom, kitchen , etc seems like a pretty tight squeeze. However, having a "fun" and "diverse" group of roommates... 1 year 11 months
BIWS ModelingHow many days or how many hours does it take to complete the basic modeling program? (For anyone who has tried it or knows anything about it). It goes through learning accounting, corporate finance, an M&A model and an LBO model. Could the program be completed effectively given two weeks? 2 years 5 days
Difference between a 3.7, 3.8 and 3.9 GPAHow differently would a recruiter/admissions counselor consider a 3.7 GPA, a 3.8 GPA and a 3.9 GPA? 3.7 is a little low I know, but is there really that much of a difference between a 3.8 (magna cum laude) and a 3.9 (summa cum laude) coming from a state school? 2 years 1 week
FT without SA position?I'm in kind of a weird position with credits at my school. Because of AP credits, summer classes, etc, I can theoretically graduate in 3 years with this coming year being a senior year. However, I wasn't able to get a SA position anywhere this summer so though my resume is "okay", I feel like it's... 2 years 1 month
COOP InternshipHow do students usually find COOP internships through networking? Some posts in the past, indicate that it is possible to get full time internships in the fall at even BBs with much less competition, but they're all old and firms might not do this anymore. Also do students have to pay their school... 2 years 1 month

Undergrad UCLA vs USC vs Rice vs Tufts vs UVA [quote=b774]Well I am not too interested in the finance world, but I do appreciate all the advice you guys have shared with me. It is going to be a difficult decision to make but I have a few more weeks to decide. Thanks for everything![/quote] It's tough to say what you'll be interested in a... 2 months 3 weeks
Undergrad UCLA vs USC vs Rice vs Tufts vs UVA I'm basing this off of interviews I've done and the finance professionals in my network. I've seen (and know) plenty of people from UCB, CMU and a decent # from UVA in finance jobs but none from Tufts (looking at NYC... 2 months 3 weeks
Undergrad UCLA vs USC vs Rice vs Tufts vs UVA USC looks safe if you're already in the business program. I think UCB, UVA, CMU stand out as being "better" than Tufts, Rice or UCLA. I would rank it as such UCB > UVA > CMU > USC > Rice > UCLA > Tufts Just curious, what were your stats like in HS? GPA, SAT, subject tests, AP, etc. 2 months 3 weeks
Case Interview Framework[quote=cubecul]Here's an alternative: read /lots/ of frameworks from all sorts of sources (CiP, VC, casebooks). Eventually you'll see a bunch of similarities and you'll have a more abstract, "framework for frameworks". For example, market entry, product entry, etc. all boil down to a business... 3 months 2 weeks
Is UConn over UVA a bad idea??[quote=Jeff-Noonan]Academically and career wise I'm leaning UVA, but UConn offers a lot of other aspects so I don't have a decision made yet. When you speak of the School of Business's culture at UConn, what exactly is it like? @Husky32[/quote] I'll send you a PM 3 months 3 weeks
Is UConn over UVA a bad idea??OP, it seems like you're leaning towards UVA. If for whatever reason you decide to attend UConn, know that you'll have to be on top of your game sophomore and junior years to get the junior SA internship. The School of Business culture will be less focused on IB analyst programs than McIntire, and... 3 months 3 weeks
Is UConn over UVA a bad idea??[quote=User11221122]@bbaryluk You can't just say "troll," when you disagree with someones opinion.(Or fact) What if this thread said, should I go to Emory or Wharton for investment banking? The answer to the question is Wharton. Even if you went to Emory and it is your favorite school ever! The... 3 months 3 weeks
Case Interview Framework[quote=donald_stump]Case in point is retarded and Victor Cheng is outdated (btw it is just kind of a 4C framework). Victor Cheng only has one framework that he applies to everything: you want to avoid doing this. Go through Cheng's framework once because it is clearer, but learn to break down each... 4 months 6 days
