Federal "special agent-type" work as...One of my interests is defense consulting/finance; I am studying national security and may work in a special agent (DEA, ATF, DHS) capacity after I finish undergrad but before I go for my MBA (likely to get a top-ranked masters degree first out of bachelor's). What is the consensus on that sort... 1 year 7 months
General info on Mining and Metals banks/prepJust to get it out of the way, YES I did use the search bar and YES I have seen M&I's M&M interview; didn't help me much.

Science Student - Should I Double Major Economics...As a student of Geology, I have the opportunity to either double major in economics or take various economics and finance classes.

Odd Situation for InternshipAs the title says. I have one. I am now a Junior in Geology (going to double in Economics) but due to a mandatory summer study program I am staying in school until Fall 2015 (not the only reason, lots of opportunities to pursue here).

Mandatory field work in Senior year. Internship...I have a conundrum, gents. I am studying geology and economics, and to complete the geology side I have a mandatory (read: cannot get out of) field work class in my Senior year summer.

Mining private of the geoscientist...I've seen a lot of private equity funds specializing in mining with odd, nontraditional associates and partners. Ie, philosophy, and more often geology.

I am not asking about whether I will get special...I am not asking about whether I will get special agent out of undergrad (as I mentioned I am getting an MA; beyond that, I don't want to go into details but my situation is unique); I have that part more or less figured out.

Good advice. Just to be clear I am not seriously...Good advice. Just to be clear I am not seriously considering getting into PE/IB until likely after an MBA, and if PE as a senior level lateral. Does this change anything? I know that it is quite possible to get into IB after MBA without an internship, does it change anything for PE lateral? 2 years 6 months
