See-through white/light blue shirt = cheap...What brand shirts do you recommend that do not expose the undershirt? My white and light blue shirts are all thin (or cheap) enough to where you can easily see the undershirt. This was never a problem during interview season since I'd always have a jacket on, but I'm wondering if this will be an... 5 years 6 months
Taking advantage of foreign exchange rates for...Let me preface this by saying I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to currency and exchange rates, so I apologize if some of these questions seem very basic. I'll be traveling across Europe for about 25 days in the month of June, right before I start working full time. Earlier today, I read... 5 years 7 months
Houlihan Lokey Restructuring - Best Office...At an info session on campus earlier this year, the HL guys said that their 8 offices are spread out throughout the US so that no office is really a satellite office. Can anyone vouch this? I have an office visit coming up in one of their non-NY offices, but I was thinking about trying to move... 6 years 1 month
Structure of Greenhill/Evercore (New York) Super...Anyone know how their super days work? Are the interviews typically more technical or behavioral? I'd assume the latter since they're both small firms (so fit is extremely important), but maybe there is also a large technical component involved? If we assume 5-6 interviews, I'd guess that some were... 6 years 2 months
How do I use one offer to make myself more...Today, I received an offer to intern at a regional research boutique (not my dream job, but something's better than nothing).

Porn airs during Super Bowl[quote]Just as Cardinals' superstar Larry Fitzgerald watched himself sprint into the end zone on the stadium's Jumbotron during Sunday's Super Bowl, 10 seconds of eye-popping pornographic imagery "flashed" across the screens of those watching at home.[/quote] 6 years 9 months
Thoughts on Imperial Capital?I have an interview with Imperial Capital but I don't know much about the firm. Does anyone know much about them (hours, culture, opportunities in the firm- groups, strength among the middle market firms, etc.). Any insight would be greatly appreciated! 6 years 10 months
Blackstone Cover LetterI'm trying to write my cover letter for Blackstone, but my university's on-campus recruiting website does not mention who to address it to. Should I just start it as "Dear HR Recruiter:"? Also, my understanding is that boutiques take the cover letter more seriously. Any suggestions on how to... 6 years 10 months

I think most people in my class who recruited in...I think most people in my class who recruited in Houston went with PwC, but it really comes down to what your future goals are.
