Let's take a step back from the recruiting questions and comments, and think of my (and many others') situation for a second.
I'm a junior. I'll be making ~$15K during an internship this summer, $7K of which I plan to save (being conservative, will prob save more). I've read Rich Dad Poor Dad and the Wealthy Barber. I've read articles and books on how to put money "to work" for me or how to earn a return (besides interest). Honestly, 99% of that is for people who have A LOT of cash to work with, not $7K made from a summer.
I've given stocks a thought... but again, I don't have millions to spare. Not just that, but the institutions will slap me outta the market as fast as my naivete drags me in. Further, it will take time to understand the nuances of the market and learn the trade, and I don't see a viable payoff. My student loan is fully paid off (scholarship).
What did you guys do when you had this much cash? I find myself with many investment ideas which require a lot of capital and so its an endless circle... If you are/were an intern at some point, did you try anything?
PS: This is not an I-Banking post, but I didn't know where else to put it, so I threw it in the forum where I thought I'd get the most reads. Sorry if its a piss off.
