What are the answers to these questions? Anyone?
What is the difference between FCFE and FCFE?Why net debt added back to TEV?What is a merger proxy called?
that last question is ridiculous. what did you answer?
as much wood as it can chuck

how do you know that it would chuck to the point where it couldn't chuck anymore?
lol. because it's a woodchuck
pay no attention. I am just being silly. this is a case question though not a brain teaser like it appears to be
As someone with no accounting or finance background.....would i get something NOT in the vault guide? If so, I am utterly fucked.
i can get the last two right, and i'm not even sure about the last one
I think the answer to this quest is pretty easy. No one wants a numerical answer because there is none.
But seriously a woodchuck will chuck as much wood as it can chuck because the amount of wood it can chuck is dependent on such factors as:
I. The specie of the woodchuckII. The shape of its legsIII. The life span of the wood chuck amongst others...
Of course, this is just my take on it. I don't know if its right but I am 99% sure that there is no specific numerical answer.
the asumption that it will chuck as much as it can simply because of its name is problematic.what if its mating season? when would it eat? sleep?
i was a philosophy major before i decided i didn't want to be poor. you cant win...
a woodchuck will chuck as much wood as it can chuck because the amount of wood it can chuck is dependent on such factors as:
I. The specie of the woodchuckII. The shape of its legsIII. The life span of the wood chuck amongst others...(such as the time of the year/season e.t.c)
the possible factors can continue ad infinitum;
The focus of this question is on wit and structure, period.
And P.S.- It can chuck as much as it can because "a woodchuck can chuck wood" and therefore a woodchuck can chuck as much as it can to the extent that it is constrained by outside factors.. (I was obviously just kidding when I said "lol..because it is a woodchuck."
Fine: How many meals can a human eat if a human can eat meals?
I think the answer to both quests are straightforward
how do you know it would be inclined to allocate all of its time and energy to the task of chucking wood. i agree that the amount it CAN chuck is constrained by external factors...thats not my point. how do you know that the amount it WILL chuck is a function only of outside things.
this is becoming absurd.
I think he meant to say FCFE and FCFF, right?
Is this woodchuck african or european?
doesn't the amount of time and energy allocated to the task of chucking wood depend on exactly those same factors: specie, seasons e.t.c.?
Hi all! First post here. I'll be attending the BoA superday tomorrow (it's technically two days, with a dinner tomorrow and interviews Friday). All I know so far is that there are three superdays this year. One is this coming Thurs/Fri, the other is the 25th/26th, and the last is the first week in November.
The first one was last Thursday/Friday and offers went out yesterday
I hadn't realised that there had already been one. I'm not sure that I go to what's called a "target school," but some of my mates and I received superday invites, and they were for tomorrow, and then the 25th/26th and also the first week in November. Hopefully they'll be hiring a lot of people if there's that many superdays, haha.
It's good to know that there is such a quick turnaround for offers, though! Do you (or anyone else, for that matter) know what the offers have looked like in terms of bonus/salary figures?
BAML Superday Official Thread (Originally Posted: 09/30/2010)
What schools will be at BAML superday tomorrow.
Update here if you receive an offer from BAML tomorrow. GL everyone
what schools are going
has anybody heard back yet tonight? i assume offers will go out tonight.
i think offers will go out tnight... anyone heard anything
still have not heard even though i thought i did quite well - anybody else on here that was there today and if so did you hear? ibddddd?
How did it go? Whats the format of the day? What kinds of questions did they ask you? Do you have any idea about how many analysts theyre willing to hire?
You guys crack me up.
which groups offered tonight?
i didnt hear anything... maybe monday?
hmm, weird i was at the superday from last week yet i still haven't heard anything
what was this a superday for
brutalglide-- was it the group switch day on the 24th? i haven't heard anything either
that means no offer. if i dont hear back monday im pretty sure thats clear for me as well. usually you hear back the same night
afalcon i have no idea if i got an offer but you couldnt be more wrong. it took them over two weeks to get back to me with SA offer. clearly they are comparing internal and external candidates as a general pool
if they still have to see other candidates at other superdays for S&T dont you think they will wait to see everyone before giving offers?
nope, usually they just know who they want and offer very quickly afterwards ... hopefully im wrong though - lets keep this active and see if anybody hears next week!
anyone get a ding?
are there more superdays coming up?
not sure, you mean for BAML or other banks?
BAML has another superday friday. I initially had a conflict and they said they could accommodate me then but then I made things work to interview earlier. ALthough, i really cant imagine them waiting until all of their superdays to extend offers. thats rather unheard of
i had my superday 3 fridays ago... still haven't heard back... HR said everything will finalize on tuesday
i wonder if that is just for the superday 3 weeks ago or for everything to date....
honestly i still think a lot of offers have already gone out and were just waiting for dings
Banks don't make you wait for 3 weeks to find out if you get an offer. If you got an offer, they'll want to tell you ASAP. I was given my offer while I was still in the cab back to my hotel from the interview.
I'm talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing.
Which group was it from?
Monday or bust
but some of the people at my superday already got rejected... HR said they were going to interview other people and then finalize later...
I think someone here would have mentioned it by now if anyone received an offer.
how do you know for sure
did ANYBODY receive an offer from BAML ft superdays (aka not SA return offer or accelerated interview)
don't think we need to get defensive guys
what's with that?
they did send out offers. I know someone at columbia that got one and turned it down.
He got it yesterday? What group? Why even go if you are prepared to reject the same day?
we hear back either monday or tuesday. post if you have an offer
corruptbargain - yes it was the group switch day (they had a few internal transfers as well though, non-IBD interns looking to switch into IBD). i know two other kids there who havent' heard anythign back yet either. guessing we'll hear back soon though
ibdddd howd you hear it would be mon/tue?
from a friend who knows the recruiter
there is another superday next friday tho, is there an advantage if you interview first?
i figured there would be which is why i moved things around
cool looks like we will hear in the next two days if we got an offer or not.. everybody post when you hear either way & list from what group the offer is or which groups you got dinged by.
I got a call on Friday.
Just got an offer but will be accepting Barcap.
Good luck with y'all!
was it from a specific group?
mind sharing the group?
Congrat's shawn! More infor please
anybody else here? my assumption is they have offered/dinged the top/bottom candidates but the rest of our fates lie with those that have received offers.
me + two friends just got rejected (interviewed 24th), i did tech/fig. sigh
sorry to hear that, was it through phone call or email
i wonder if the 10/1's will hear. ibdddd stay in touch bro
gl to rest
I work at BAML - no official offers have been given out, yet. Should be soon though. Sit tight guys.
thanks UCmonkey, do you know whats taking them so long? are there still lots of spots left
i did not hear today one way or another. did anybody else?
UCmonkey, do you know when offers will begin to go out? This is the quite the waiting period - would rather receive an offer or just get dinged and move on haha
any word ibddd?
i heard, but I'm not telling
sounds like bad news
Did you hear officially from HR?
why have I not heard!?!? im guessing this is a de facto ding but i much prefer de jure ding. someone give me some guidance here
you may be unofficially waitlisted?
what about research positions?! has anyone heard anything??
this is getting ridiculous apparently they still don't know how many offers they can give out
where did you get that from corruptbargain? if im waitlisted wouldnt they atleast call and tell me?
i thought we would here on monday by the latest according to all the sources on here...
my info is from HR
it's all group dependent. a lot of groups are waiting to hear back on offers...so yes it is essentially a waitlist
did hr say when we would in fact know by? end of week?
bump...no one has actually confirmed a written offer at this point?
ibddd did you hear?
im throwin the towel in guys, offers must have gone out by this point its like 5 days after the fact...oh well, its only one bank!
Were any of you at a S&T superday, not for a research position or quant track?
If so, what was the superday like? What kinds of questions?
lot's of uncertainty here guys... best of luck to everyone who went thru the processs... they did interview what seemed to be an unusually high number of candidates on 10/1... im hoping to hear something today along with everyone else... all the best
i don't think they've sent them out yet...anyone know otherwise?
still no word on my end... hoping to hear today... this waiting game is tough... best of luck to everyone who interviewed
nothing today still. has anybody heard from 10/1 besides the all-star shawnfire
i was told to wait for a few more weeks...
WEEKS?! by who?oh my god
wow that would be long. i was told "hopefully within a week" yesterday
I hate the fact that I applied to BAML and had a very highly respected MD I worked for forward my resume and cover letter and they can't connect the two (according to some dipshit in human resources). I haven't even received an answer back.
Just heard back from the non-target recruiter (resume forwarded by alumni) and he mentioned they are starting first rounds within the next few weeks and aiming for a late October early November superday.
Hold tight guys, you are about to get some competition for those last few spots.
i find it extremely unlikely that they will keep us on hold until November. everybody will just go other BB's and BAML would be left with nobody...
Okay boys and girls, allow me to shed some light. I keep reading the same questions over and over again even after the answer has been posted, that's not a good start to banking (assuming you kids get offers).
Everyone needs to just relax and realize that there is nothing you can do at this point, it is out of your hands. Therefore, stop worrying and just go about your business enjoying your last year of college. Banking sucks ass, so stop wasting your time thinking about it while you still have ownership of your life. If you get an offer, come this time next year you will be wondering why you wanted to do this so badly lol.

From an inside source:
Out of three superdays there are only 2 groups looking for people, 1-2 each. So 4 total.
Whats your source?
anybody else receive word?
Got in touch with recruiting - decisions come out "mid-this week". post when you hear!
i heard the last offers went out today, those waiting will be receiving dings shortly
Has anyone from the 10/8 superday heard back yet?
Just wondering b/c I have another offer with an upcoming deadline soon, I'd like to know if anyone has heard back yet before I get in touch with HR tomorrow.
there's still another superday coming up in november.
received an offer today
Were you from the 10/8 superday?
What desk did you receive an offer from?
Does anyone have a sense for associate hiring? How many offers were given out, and how many people are on hold from the 10/15 superday?
BAML Superday 2/5 (Originally Posted: 02/10/2016)
Anybody hear back after the superday this past friday?
I know people who have heard they're waitlisted, assuming they've given offers at this point
For IB? I know there was a mix of IB and S&T
No one I've spoken to has heard tonight either. I know there was another super day earlier in the week. Was he definitely 2/5?
Either of you hear about a final decision yet?
yeah. I received the offer. were you waitlisted?
BAML Superday 2/6/2015 (Originally Posted: 02/06/2015)
anyone hear back for superday for summer analyst? S&T, IB, GCM, Public Finance?
what did you interview for?
GCM in CLT
Anyone hear anything? still waiting on IB
I haven't heard anything back yet either
Has anyone heard back?
bump. are we all rejected?
still haven't heard anything...
still waiting as well.... I mean there are a few more superday's in the next couple weeks. Did any of you have offers anywhere else?
any word yet?
Hey has anyone else been placed on the waitlist for IBD? Anyone know when we should here back?
still have not been contacted by anyone. they said by wednesday they would be in touch. have you heard anything?
nope. followed up with recruiter and interviewer. can't be a good sign lol
I didn't interview on 2/6/15, but I interviewed on 1/30/15 for S&T and heard back by 4 that day! I don't know if that's what people want to hear, but they got back quickly.
I apologize for spam. I refreshed page and it recommented. #noob
has anyone found out yet?
interviewed on 2/13, heard back today. There's one more superday this Friday so anyone on the waitlist should hear back some time next week
@yeahhhbuddy, did you get an offer or no after that long? I'm waiting on a superday response and Idk when id likely hear back (if at all).
BAML Superday 9/15/16 (Originally Posted: 09/05/2016)
Has anyone received an invitation?
Is this SA or FT?
I heard back a week ago. OP where are you interviewing?
I heard they had a 50% accept rate from their interns, so can't believe they're hiring so quickly
Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Gotta soak up the top talent before the others do.
London or NY ?
I believe it was for US only. And for the record: I didn't get invited to the super day :(
BAML Super Day this past friday 2/26/10 (Originally Posted: 03/03/2010)
Was wondering if anyone has heard from BofA from the super day this past friday. I thought my interviews all went well but still nothing.
Have a friend that was rejected for IBD, whatever that's worth
Was there for ST past friday. haven't heard anything...which probably means we're dinged. ( i know there's the possibility but typically...) Other than that, I sent out thank yous and one of the guys responded, which probably doesn't mean anything. Just sharing my experience.
My guess is either we're dinged so they'll get back to us on Friday night or we're one of the weaker pool since they're still doing some interviews because of snow storm.
So far, I know one person got an offer monday afternoon.
oh and btw, I thought my interviews went well too. The wait sucks.
I was there for IBD and got my offer Monday afternoon. I got mostly positive responses to replies to my thank you emails (most mentioned stuff like "ask me if you have any questions about groups, etc.") so maybe look for stuff like that?
The one person that got an offer monday was S&T or IBD?
was this summer analyst or full time?
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I interviewed for S&T on Friday and got an offer already.
I got an offer a month ago through OCR... was this OCR for you guys?
Good chance, I'm at a target but didn't apply through campus recruiting so i was behind in schedule compared to my peers.
Hey, did anyone who applied for research hear back?
got a call, got put on hold till next week. Anyone one else in that position? Anything I can do about that?
On hold means they want you but there are people ahead of you in line. If you have any relationships with very senior people, now is a good time to call them if you're absolutely positive you want to work there. When I was put on hold for a group offer, they let me come back up and interview with two other groups that needed analysts. I'm not sure how it works for s&t. Also, this was for full-time hiring.
You just have to sit back and wait and hope some people don't accept their offers. The wait sucks, but I ended up getting an offer, for whatever that's worth.
I was at the super day for S&T, and I got a call from them on Monday with an offer.
Citi had put me on hold a couple weeks ago, so I made sure to email all of my interviewers to thank them for their time and stress how much I wanted to work there. Of course, Citi never called me back, so my advice might not be the best to go by -- depends on how BofA makes their decisions I guess.
hey OP, have you heard anything yet?
BAML Superday 12/7 (Originally Posted: 11/22/2015)
Anyone got a superday with baml on 12/7? Thanks!
I will be there. I-banking SA interview, from a non-target school.
BAML 11/6 Super Day Response (Originally Posted: 11/10/2009)
Has anyone heard back from the BAML 11/6 IBD Super Day?
Pretty late super day. I would guess that was the last one?
From earlier threads about their Superdays, it looks like they take a few days. What did they tell you during your interviews?
While I would normally be dubious of #2 b/c in my (albeit limited) experience, HR often gets back to candidates fairly quickly, the "earliest Wednesday" statement is plausible in light of the somewhat unique interview format (which also accounts for #3 - e.g. the difficulty of gauging an indication). The interviews were set up such that you interview with a number of groups and then they look at how the various groups ranked you relative to how you ranked the groups as well as their hiring needs and decide to whom they want to extend offers.
Given what you just said, I wouldn't worry until Friday.
I got the offer yesterday evening.

Hear from BAML NYC Super Day yet? (Originally Posted: 01/23/2013)
Anybody have a super day at BAML in NYC earlier today and hear back yet?
"Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be"
I haven't heard back yet. Did you? I think they said we should hear back next week.
offers were given out already (on the 25th)
BAML Superday 2/20 (Originally Posted: 02/21/2015)
Has anyone heard back for IB yet?
I have not heard back yet. Good luck!
@bman93 Thanks! Good luck to you too. Let me know if you hear anything
