Am I crazy trying to pull this off?
I am a 2nd yr analyst at a EB with a decent PE offer on hand. After getting into banking, I immediately knew this won't be for me after 2 yrs (the sharpest guys in every room are always analysts + a couple really successful MDs) and associates/VPs who took the promotion are more or less viewed a failure. (which is quite unfair)
As speaking with more PE folks in last a few months, I found out some of the smartest guy were only able to get VP prom after 4 or 5 yrs. With that reservation on my mind, combined with a couple other factors I went through a few corp dev interviews with tech start-ups. I had a superday last Friday, when I met the team and found the most attractive and lovely girl I've ever talked with. We had a 50-min interview in the 30-min slot.(yeah, I didn't care to mention my next interview coming up and the entire convo was nothing but amazing.)
I've run hundreds of different scenarios in my head and confirmed she hasn't married. I'm sure I crushed the superday and can get the offer with my background. Should I renege my PE offer for a person I barely know? I felt a strong feeling of love that I'd never experienced and has this occurred to any of you?
