Ending Prop Trading: Offers Rescinded?Let's say you have an offer at one of the large commercial banking giants in their S&T division.

(i.e. if you roll two 6's right off the bat, that counts as 2 rolls)" Well the probability of rolling 2 sixes in a row is 1/36.....so the number of expected rolls would be 36? 192 3 weeks 1 day

It's also unfair (and doesn't suit the needs of business schools) to test knowledge. Different majors would face negative and positive biases. Do you really want to be tested... 144 3 years 2 months
