Ending Prop Trading: Offers Rescinded?Let's say you have an offer at one of the large commercial banking giants in their S&T division.

Truth about HBS 2+2I've read through the archives on discussions pertaining to HBS's 2+2. I'm thinking about applying, but I'm concerned as to whether or not the program is 'for me'. I'm a double major in math... 6 years 2 months
Just to Double CheckMM SA > SA at NY Fed right? I have accepted an offer at a MM, but the NY Fed has invited me to an interview. It's prudent to turn the interview down right? 6 years 2 months
Thoughts on Risk MgmtWhat are everyone's thoughts on risk mgmt, and where the business is headed in the future?

Timeline for non-targetsJust to clarify this. Does anybody know when non-targets usually hear back regarding SA 1st round interviews?

Peter Schiff Interview (The Inevitable Collapse..."If you aren't going to read and make a minimal effort to understand what I wrote, then indeed we are wasting our time. All I can say is I'm glad there are people who think like you participating in markets." I'll take that as defeat -- since I addressed all of your silly points, if you read... 2 years 10 months
Peter Schiff Interview (The Inevitable Collapse..."You asserted- “if structural unemployment had increased in recent years, then we would be seeing wages and hours worked accelerating in the sectors in which skilled workers are in short supply”. That is unfounded." Right. It's so unfounded that it's usually taught in every introductory labor... 2 years 10 months
Peter Schiff Interview (The Inevitable Collapse...[quote=rls][quote=WegmansTuna]Nothing but hot air. Schiff has been wrong on almost everything since the crash.

He has talked... 2 years 10 months

Cal haas or math?ditto what has been said. I chose math over finance and got many more interviews than my counterparts in the business school. Caveat is that you need to do well in math.

GMAT Monopoly I strongly agree w/ most of what AnthonyD has said. [quote=Matty-Matt]if schools have the choice between Adam (Ivy UG, GPA 3.5, BB IB->PE, 720) and Gary (2nd tier UG, GPA 3.8, BB IB->PE, 650) . . . they may choose Adam, but to say that it's only about GMAT is silly.
