Govt May Mandate More Diversity on Wall Street[quote=brooksbrotha]This pisses me off so much. JP Morgan, I shit you not (and I'm sure everyone here may already know) has so many god damn diversity internships, it's ridiculous. They have positions for blacks, womens, and gays. They also don't require you to even be a business major to be in the... 4 years 9 months

Do they really pay attention to that stuff or do they just care about your final CGPA.? I... 5 years 3 months

Fortune 100 Corporate Strategy Group, or boutique...I would have to disagree that it would give him comparable exit opps into PE. It all really depends on which fortune 100 firm it is (i.e. Disney, GE, AMEX). Which firm is it?
