Sheer Suckers

Luna Park Union Square -- Summer Finance Banking Intern Assbaggery

I like my women like I like my loafers: expensive, fit, and more often than not, with a bit of bling around their necks. They’re probably my two favorite things in the world, women and loafers. Put to it, I’m not even certain which one I’d pick over the other. I’d normally be tempted to select women, but, it is summer right now, meaning that until the government mandates a universally implanted, 3-month contraceptive device (sans mood swings), the winner would have to be my loafers—the ones I can safely slip into bareback.
Note: My affinity for black and brown loafers does not quite carry over to their female counterparts.

But summer means more to me than just unprotected loafer-sex. Summer means Coral Reef, Jake Blue, and Bermuda Pink. It means timeshares, outdoor dining, and Bethpage Black. It means a seersucker hoodie when it’s a bit nippy, and seersucker shorts when it’s not. Summer means various things to various people, but one thing it means for most people in finance and all of New York is: interns.

In what other scenario is a city so flooded with impressionable, overeager, and clueless minds as summer in Manhattan? I’m told there is a similar wave of little political interns towards D.C. this time of year, but frankly, I’m not even certain they get paid. And anyway, what is the overall impact of that industry when compared to that of finance? Negligible. Don’t get me wrong—activism is to be applauded, but only in hedge funds.

Back to the subject. Emotionally, summer interns act intimidated and obsequious. And even if they hate finance, they are hyper-aware of the comfort that would come with getting an offer (a feeling perhaps only comparable to early action / decision to college), and they are driven accordingly. This is their entire psychology, terribly simple and uninteresting.

Instead of dwelling on that though, let’s consider a quick cultural analysis of the average undergraduate finance summer interns in New York, which is more interesting only in that we can amuse ourselves with their naiveté:

Where They Live

From 14th Street to 200 Water, New York University dorms get filled with juniors working in finance seeking summer housing. These units sometimes also house foreign graduate students (law, even). They often are minuscule. And they, without fail, have the pungent smell of Tier Four exuding from the walls (Does the stench come from that little torch that is their emblem?).

Tragically, the time when New York University’s dormitories are filled with the most intelligent students is the summer, when very few of the students attend NYU. One can only hope the NYU administration is aware of this and hoping some of the brainpower will rub off.
Note: Frugal Midwestern State School X students interning at Houlihan H(L)okey are known to spend their entire summers in one of New York’s, communal-bathroom “youth hostels.”

What They Wear

Like their unpolished speech, summer interns’ fashion is a bit too frat. They can easily be spotted by their brand spanking new canvas messenger bags and shoes from Aldo. No joke, I even saw one on the street with white socks and black pants—must have been a rough day at work for him. Interns are universally clueless, but perhaps most tragic is that many have gone out with their mothers and intentionally invested in their “sweet” new threads. Come on Intern Mom—I know this shit wasn’t acceptable in your day, either.

Where They Go Out

Summer interns beam proudly when they’re out at someplace like Bowery Bar, the South Street Seaport, or that horrendous bar in the middle of Union Square; they’re almost endearing all lined up drinking Rum & Cokes or Long Island Iced Teas or god knows what. They will also spend a fair amount of time at the Hudson Hotel, Maritime, and waiting in line outside the Gansevoort, but the summer intern will, unequivocally, wet his pants and leave the bar/club scene behind if he even hears mention of a “rooftop party” (2 Gold! 45 Wall!

Inspecting this culturally-unrefined species, it’s frightening to think that many interns will one day join the ranks of real Bankers and leaders of their generation. It’s scary to consider the massive amount of responsibility that will be placed on those young shoulders in just a couple years. It’s almost a miracle that the system functions.

But interns aren’t all bad, and there is a bright side to having my city flooded with them—it’s even more easy than usual for an established finance guy like me to woo a young female. “Deal flow,” as it were, is greatly increased.

As a matter of fact, I’m currently filtering a list I’ve aggregated from friends still at banks for a girl intern to invite out to East Hampton for an unofficial information session. I’ll mentor and guide her through all the tough questions she’s facing: was it ok that she was having some trouble understanding how to create a restructuring model for a bankrupt corporation with multiple cross-border divisions?—Sure, girls aren’t expected to complete the difficult work anyway. Will it be tough on her as a woman in finance?—No, she’s cute. And will it be bad if she doesn’t get an offer?—Yes, she won’t be able to leverage that offer for a better one, and she might end up working at a place whose name doesn’t incite envy. Imagine that.

She’ll nod (too frequently, as if she’s in class) through all of this, and her eyes will widen when I casually tell her the tale of the credit agreement I just negotiated. It was just for the revolver; but hey, that word even turns me on. Then, when she’s sufficiently impressed, I’ll bust out my new Tods1 (white stitching and tie) which will undoubtedly push her over the top.

Hopefully, if I filter well enough, my summer intern will be one with an unnaturally clear, acne-free complexion, and I’ll be able to simultaneously experience my two favorite things in the world, sockless.

1Intern chicks don’t even require the real high-end shit.

    ahh the sound of bedding a nice, young 22 year old intern gets me going and it?s only a fucking Monday. I just saw a couple of girls in the elevator that looked like exactly what he?s describing, it?s a good thing I hadn?t read this first or I may be in an HR meeting now instead of at the desk. I wouldn?t mind setting this week?s goal as getting a hat trick, and it might just have to start w/ tonight, given the 90 degree weather, when girls wear no bras and rarely wear panties. Anybody know any good spots on a Monday, this is usually my ”stay in” night. I will have to say that gay ”i love my loafer” shit is for homoerotic types like meandjoemoomoo and Hedgie. If you care that much about your shoes, I can guarantee you ain?t fuckin as good as you should be, and the girls know it.

    So as a summer associate at a law firm, I can?t help but agree with your sad but true picture of our ”banking world” counterparts (we?ve established a relationship akin to the Sharks and the Jets). With one caveat- don?t rule out the brown and black ones? as a ”brownie” myself, I can tell you you?re ruling out a very easy contingent of ”ladies.” (Smart?) Black girls love nothing more in the summer then a fling with a hot dumb guy that can get them into clubs.

    The only difficulty with bedding a summer intern though (if they live at the NYU dorms) is the whole ID policy at the security desks. Its worse than JFK! Normally this wouldn?t be too much of a problem, but stumbling and fumbling at 4 in the morning, it can be quite a challenge.

You justify your existence by throwing out phrases like ”in the venture capital space” or ”I saw Peter Petersen the other day”??You casually mention the Ivy league business school you went to, and then, when you just can?t stand it anymore, you start a blog where you write scathing comments about the easiest targets in the world – female interns – probably because they resist your advances. Such nobility and high-mindedness. You all should get out of New York, get married, move to the suburbs, and thank God you are as lucky and as fortunate as you are.

    those who diss the NYU dorms are morons? the NYU dorms in the summer are goldmines for young hot media and entertainment intern muffs. if you are a true balla, you can bang the hottest 19 to 21 year olds. here?s how da hustle works: 1) apply for an undergrad dorm for the summer and expect to pay around 2500 total 2) stock your room up with top shelf liquor and pure ganja 3) pretend that you are a banker intern who happen to live there (note: the m&e interns don?t give a shit that you?re a banker slave. the banker bit only legitimizes the fact that you work 24/7 and are never at da dorm)? 4) hit up the dorms thursday, friday, and saturday nights. invite all the media and entertainment young muffs over to pre-party, take them out to Marquee, Cain, Tenjune, whateva or any meatpacking spot would work? 5) take da hoes back to the dorm for the after party and shag to your heart?s content. 6) repeat every week and you?ll have a limitless stable of hot, young 19-21 year old muffs for the entire summer fuck wedding crashing? dorm crashing is for true ballas who likem barely legal?. gyea!

    you?re totally wrong dogg pound. biggest arb is having chicks that are struggling to pay 2500 a month for dorm living check out your 10K a month palace. I used to have a 4 bedroom 3 thousand square foot place my friends referred to as the ”pantie dropper”. Fact is that the interns are impressed by the same stuff as most gold digging women, they just have lower defenses. Screw ganja, coke is the new weed and everybody knows it. and just like most new york women, hedge fund beats banker any day of the week. Best comment from an intern i ever heard: ”you?re only 2 years older than me and you make more money than my dad”. It sucks that you work in the US. In Asia, you can hire interns purely based on looks. Then you have welcome parties where clients are invited. Fish in a barrel.

I have to say that I want to ”big-up” my boy Dogg Pound with the 19-21 year old demographic. There is nothing more pure than the mind of a 20 year old girl, zero complications, (cross your fingers) zero diseases, and thusly, a zero percent chance they let that post-op degenerate StraightTalker hit it. I cracked up with that ”seamlessweb belly” comment, very clever Bored Female Banker.

    Why bankers are pathetic Said:

    Great satire. I hope. The tragic thing about this article is that what should be tongue-in-cheek is so often not amongst the priviledge-ridden, entitlement-obsessed moral weaklings that get excited about instrumentalizing their lives. Purely materially-oriented sophistication is simply an ironic form of complete unsophistication. This degree of navel-gazing nihilism really shouldn?t be amusing in a lighthearted way – that might be like reading Swift?s Modest Proposal and finding oneself hungry for Irish babies. The fact that it registers as remotely sane for so many on this wall just means we should be concerned – I?ll bet not many give a fuck though. That?s the problem I have here: satirical writing is only effective if the reader has any moral sensibilities at all; but I know too many people who do not and who would post precisely as others have done here. To those who posted here who actually have had the priviledge of a decent education but think the things said here are amusing in a non-satirical way – you?re sick and a waste of a society?s investment. If you think knowing the subtle class distinctions embodied by various loafers (with/sans socks) or bedding young girls makes you more of a man, you?re truly pathetic.

    straight talker Said:

    ohhhhhhhhhh where do I start. To Back Orifice, eat a dick. I?ll leave it at that for now, you aren?t worth it. Actually, it pains me to agree w/ you about the pure mind of the 20 year olds, although there are some complications in that their friends get a disproportionate say in their decisions, etc., so either make sure to nail one of them as well on the side, covertly, or at least flirt w/ them so they can think they may have a chance at some point once you?re done w/ their friend. I can vouch for Dogg Pound Gangsta, I saw the liquor stash and the ho?s, and it was good livin?. It didn?t hurt that he had as his main wingman in that dorm, a 21 year old kid who also worked in M&E. The two of them brought little groups of minnows to almost every one of our bottle nights out, and trust me when I say that good things happened. To the kid in H.K. w/ the $10k apartment, so the fuck what, I worked there for a month, and frankly you could be living in a Marriot in Kowloon and bang about any local you want, if you?re into that, or go for some of the decent looking Brit expats, and again it doesn?t matter how big your place is or if it?s up above midlevels. Myself, I found a dirty Essex girl, who I met at 4am one night, and just banged her senseless for the remaining weeks I was there. It was more efficient, and as I said, she was dirty. But I couldn?t wait to get back to the greatest spot on earth, NYC. Oh and the fact that you are meeting girls whose dads make less than you actually means you?re meeting the wrong girls. Meet one whose parents own a Sagaponack estate and you?ll realize what you?ve been missing. It kills me that I?ve become addicted to this site, though it does make for good entertainment.

There are like 2 of them, and both suck horribly. What Chicago does have that NYC doesn?t, and is worth caring about: 1) Wrigley Field – Friday day games 2) Wiener Circle The rest of the shit you can have it Midwest boys, it sucks.

Though I?ll go one further, this guy sounds like he?s a limey Brit, mad at the world, depressed, and badly in need of some Coronas on a beach w/ some fun friends (doubtlful he has any), scantily clad women (hasn?t seen them in years), and a night out instead of sitting home reading Emily Dickinson novels lamenting over the decline of modern civilization. In short, you?re a fucking buzzkill, so go somewhere else where you?ll be more welcomed and where people will appreciate your poetic bitching. I actually know who that Chitown Baby clown is, and trust me, you aren?t in good company. He sits at the pool at the Vegas Hard Rock and complains about being hot, bored and eventually leaves the pool to go hit the sports book inside for a while. Did-anybody-else-notice-”Why Bankers are pathetic”?s-over-use-of-hyphens; and semi-colons? Look if any youngins on here need someone to edit their b-school essays, send them to this clown. Or if you are simply feeling high on life and happy and are looking for a way to lose that feeling (anti-ecstasy, basically), talk to Why Bankers are pathetic, he?ll change your mind.

    Straight Talker, You obviously never left Hyde Park when you lived here because you clearly are talking out of your fat ass. 1. NYC during summer is one of the most disgusting places in the country. It?s hot and humid, with millions of people cramped on a small island. Add to this the smell of garbage, and NYC summer is nothing more than a hellhole. Chicago has Lake Michigan, which is an awesome place to jog and play sports. 2. The nightlife in Chicago is amazing. There?s something going on every night. Stone Lotus, Rino, Underground, Manor, Enclave, Level, Y Bar, and Narcisse, are just a few of the happening clubs and lounges. The girls there are some of the hottest you?ll see in the country, but of course, they don?t go for fat NYC douchebags like yourself. 3. The energy here is incredible. Walk on Rush Street on a summer afternoon, and you?ll know what I?m talking about. Awesome restaurants, shops, and beautiful women everywhere. As I said before, Chicago has everything NYC has, minus the ridiculous rent, pretentious faggots like you, and materialistic jewish chicks.

Anything Chicago has to offer (i.e. some variation of a fratastic bar), New York has?and much much more. and what?s the big deal about getting a big10 girl? they?re pathetic dogs compared to sun-belt colleges (FSU, Arizona, USC, Texas). and the big10 sucks in football.

    airhead, Chicago might have higher temperature during the summer, but the city is spread out.

The nightlife in Chicago is amazing. It has more bars per capita than any city in the country, and the clubs and lounges are some of the best out there. I admit that sun belt girls are better. But aside from LA, Scottsadale AZ, Vegas, and Miami, Chicago has the hottest girls in the country. It simply blows NYC away.

Back Orifice, i must once again agree with you, and frankly I?m getting sick of you making good points. A guy in New York will tend to pull anywhere else, as he?s learned the art of approaching the most skittish, sensitive women in the world, in a very non-threatening, I?m smart and with it, sort of way, but with the underlying message of ”ultimately, I?m going to fuck you, so let?s go ahead and establish a connection, laugh a little, and enjoy ourselves before we get down to it”. That stance has worked well in my past in places like Greece, Spain, and Norway, though not quite as well w/ midwest townies from Chicago, who hear ”I?m from New York”, and their defensiveness picks up a little. Don?t get me wrong, I?ve still banged a few from there, but it?s a relatively inefficient endeavor. Munich is OK, certainly not one of the best places on the planet, though Prague is great, and many of Eastern Europe?s capitals are getting better and better, full of hotties waiting to get banged.

Hvar has a famous little lounge/bar at the end of the marina area at the port, called Carpe Diem, where you basically cannot get in past 9pm, unless you either have one of the ridiculous yachts along the marina, or speak Croatian. It?s the one time I?ll admit being from New York and navigating our club doormen here had no effect, I was laughing at how ridiculous it was. Even ugly and brutish men and women were getting in due to their Croation connections and/or having a 100 ft. yacht (the club makes it its business to know who the yacht owners are). Luckily if you go there, next door is a pretty sweet spot w/ excellent tables and a great looking crowd that require no bottles or minimums. Chicago rules, you are likely making out each night w/ one of the girls who blew me during b-school?I didn?t say Chicago girls were good for nothing, I just said they are an inefficient endeavor as they are too into every guy they meet being their boyfriend.

Walk around Rush Street on a saturday afternoon during summer, and you?ll see big ballers in their ferraris and bentleys, with some of the hottest girls you?ll see in the country. But you would obviously know nothing about that since you were too busy hanging out at a dive bar in wicker park with other people of your socioeconomic status. The clubs and lounges I mentioned are some of the best in the country, attracting insanely hot chicks, the type you fantasize about. In any case, I wish you the best of luck in NYC.

Put your little uncircumcised tapeworm back in its sheath, and be careful not to get it confused w/ the little pubes around it, they?re hardly indistinguishable. You are a minnow, not a man. New York puts London to shame in every category that there is, with the exception of number of years in existence, and if we go back to the days before New York existed, London was a disease-infested city, and the U.K. was not a big player in the world?s events. Ass kicked around by the Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, and French during the pre-1500 days, it?s no wonder that when you finally emerged, you were so quick to declare your superiority to the rest of the world. Meanwhile, a short couple of hundred years later and some little, uneducated ”Yanks” kicked the fucking shit out of you and sent you back w/ your balls stuffed in your ass, while the ones who remained got either impregnated by good old fashioned, hard working American boys, or succumbed to our way of life, and gave up those limey accents.

    I must agree with the Budapest booster (only one?): it?s a beautiful city, awesome energy, and amazing women. This stands even if one of the most well-known recent books set there has another city as its name. Eastern European women have (in addition to being beautiful and smart, which certainly isn?t unique to them) an incredible endowment of refinement and culture, which is what makes them so interesting and attractive. They impress upon you that, if you are lucky enough to be chosen by them, you will have an amazing life? rather than just a night and a story. After having spent some time overseas, it became difficult to date mainstream American women? they are going or have been through college, and most people end up doing things, once there, that are a slap in the face against the cultural gifts that college was meant to transmit. Culture isn?t extinct, but it is rare (1%? 2%?) and has pretty much vanished in the set of people who were once most prominently expected to have it. You?re much more likely to find culture in (for example) Minneapolis-St. Paul old money and Pacific Northwest nouveau riche than among degenerate final/eating club brats and annoying ironic/”hip” people. New York definitely has cultured people, in the sense that it has everything, but they?re rarer than one might hope. Certainly it does not bode well for a city that $1000 handbags actually exist and are not just internet flame (as I thought they were, before coming here). If you can live anywhere, go to Eastern Europe? except in the winter, when it really sucks.

    as a person who once lived in chicago for a good number of years and still visits frequently, is this chicago rules guy being serious? i mean, he really can?t be. the viagra triangle (rush st. area) is for disgusting overweight bachelorette party-wagons and the balding conventioneers who love them. while i give that chicago has good food (alinea, moto, mirai), neither gibsons, carmines, and certainly not le colonial offer any. underground and manor are just passable wannabes of the new york and LA scenes with the exception that the women in chicago sport muffin tops and the men are still in stripe-shirts-untucked-with-jeans. pathetic. unlike mr. chicago rules seems to believe, the only real thing chicago has going for it is that it?s laid back, close to the water, and cheap. frankly, the dive bars in wicker park and a few of the chi-chi places in the west loop are the only places worth going to. at the very least, hipsters are a little more interesting to look at than overgrown frat boys.

    straight talker Said:

    I say we all pitch in and buy hugh jorgen a week in NYC, he is a straight shooter, calls it like he sees it, and his candor is refreshing. Plus I have a feeling he could use a night out carousing w/ some hair-less hotties. On the question about what?s so different about the Chi and NY crowds, it?s more that there aren?t a lot of similarities. The Chicago crowd is a lot more provincial, midwestern, conservative in their mindset. The NY crowd is anything but. Cosmopolitan is an understatement with respect to the NYC crowd. There are so many other things, but most if it is an intangible, you need to be there to see it, kind of a thing. There is a sort of common level of wit among most Manhattan residents that you don?t find anywhere else, particularly in the middle of the country, unfortunately. It?s as if all of us here have read the same rules book of decorum and therefore all sort of look at some basic things in a similar way. It?s also the same reason why we drive up prices of lots of things, or all know exactly which spot in a subway station to stand in order to ensure we get on the next train, know to get to a new movie at least 50 minutes before it starts, the list goes on. Chicago, although it is a big city, is much more of a mosaic of a bunch of normal, suburban types, who just happen to live in a city. Not everybody, the Wicker Park crowd isn?t like that, for example, but it holds for most of the rest. One of the most disappointing things about Chicago is that women over 26 or 27, w/ decent jobs and education, don?t even tend to go out to lounges or clubs, especially in the winter, and so the rest of us are forced to jump all over the 22-25 year old crowd?..which isn?t all bad actually.

    The Chi & NY - Synergies Said:

    Chicago rules: Yeah, had a good time at Underground a couple weeks ago. Haven?t checked out Manor yet. Kept it real at Boutique this weekend. Very, very real. If you?ve been there, you know what I mean. Also, most of my best buds from college are in NYC, and I just sort of got used to going there. I honestly don?t think there is a huge difference. In NY they have B&T, in Chicago we have Schaumburg. Both have great spots, both have dives. The top tier in both cities is ridiculous. I generally think the second tier places in Chicago are nicer than those in NY though. It is like rental buildings in New York – they will get people even if they aren?t that nice and even if their prices are too high. That said, there is a certain edginess or attitude about NY women that I love, that you get sometimes here in Chicago, but not as often as in New York. It is a turn off for most people, actually, but I kind of dig it. Net/net I?m still more pro-Chicago though, don?t get me wrong.

    Second City Said:

    Straight Talker, I live in Chicago and agree with everything you said so far. Aside from being cheaper and cleaner, Chicago is not on the same level as NYC. Part of it is that Chicago is a big midwestern city, filled with kids from places like Indiana, Iowa, and Wisconsin, who think they?ve now made it because they?re in Chicago. As a result there is a very bland fratty social scene here, which is fine if you?re 21 but for the bit older people like myself, it doesn?t do it. Some of the clubs and lounges are okay, and you can see pretty hot girls there, but it?s just not up to NYC?s caliber. People here don?t dress as well, and there is not as much variety. In my visits to NYC, I have been dumbfounded by the quality of women, and what?s interesting is that you don?t have to go to a club to see them. Whole foods, central park, weekday lunch spots in midtown, etc., are all swarming with attractive women. As straight talker said, in Chicago, the decent girls over the age of 25 don?t even go to clubs and lounges that much, so you?re left with young girls who dress slutty. Of course, there?s nothing wrong with that, but the scene in NYC is far different and better. I can go on forever about this, but it?s hard to know the differences unless you?ve been to both cities.

I practice my swing. I spend a lot of money. My fraternity was better than yours. I?m busy this weekend. I know which cigars are good. I might have to go into the office this weekend. I claim I can go out and run a marathon. I know a lot about IRAs. I have my real estate license too. I haven?t told you exactly what I do. I?ll ask if you saw that big play in that game. I ask if you listen to Stern. I played that course last weekend. I know my football team?s record last season. I?ll put these drinks on my expense report. It was never as good as when I was there. I shouldn?t have a car this nice. I?m looking at buying a condo. I wasn?t listening. I talk a lot. I know all the dirty jokes. I?m a darling to the ladies in the office. The other guys are tools. I?ve got a big future. I got invited to that wedding. All the guys I meet are idiots. I need to move companies because this one just can?t pay me right. I can tell you about how that nice restaurant really isn?t that great. I?ve never heard of your company. I already went to the gym. I can put them away and then get my car out of valet. I talk about stocks. I wear my suit to every happy hour. I know the big man. I know those guys, too. I wear a nice watch. Your girlfriend likes nice watches. I?m in the valet line waiting on my car. I pick up my cell phone when you?re talking to me. I check my messages when you?re trying to talk to me. I was just there. I know the cool bars. I just got these sunglasses but I really want the ferarri but settle with the beamer. I never sent a gift. I?ll be at homecoming over by the stadium. I have season tickets. I saw that hot girl on the elevator. I?m looking at a big bonus. You will get my card. I am everything that?s wrong in America. I am everything you wish you could be. I?m a young banker guy. What did you think of that?

    Entrepreneur Said:

    I think all of these ”baller” i-bankers posting comments on this site are hilarious. If you live in New York City, you know that i-bankers are basically a bunch of trained chimpanzees and, even lower, former ivy league frat boys who actually think they possess some intellect when the only real skills they can claim are a dog-like ability to take orders from people and the ability to look at spreadsheets for hours on end. These guys work at boring places for 18 hours a day with bosses that nail them in the ass over their desks using tabasco as lube every half hour, all in the name of an income that, for most, doesn?t even come close to making them above upper-middle class in Manhattan. The summer interns and NYU girls use these guys to get free drinks, and then ditch them at the end of the night for much more fun, better looking guys who are still in college and don?t weigh 300 pounds or make lame-ass Wall Street references that no one else finds funny or cool in any way. Eventually these people have to settle for mid to late 20?s ”trophy” wives who will force them to live above their means in an uncomfortable cycle of Park Ave. pissing contests until the bankers inevitably blow up and lose it all, leaving their park avenue ”friends” (entrepreneurs) to continue making money and making i-bankers feel inadequate. Have fun being alone and working at a BMW dealership in central Jersey, losers.

    Entrepreneur: Your point is well-taken, to an extent. As a former economics major, I freely submit that the undergraduate program could be more rigorous. Your subsequent conclusion, however, leads me to question your very moniker: what legitimate entrepreneur would hire with systematic biases against a significant fraction of the elite college workforce? What you are proposing is akin to the Yankees refusing out of hand to sign Dominican players because they are relatively less-talented than their Puerto Rican and Cuban counterparts. The central axiom of entrepreneurship is the relentless pursuit of merit?not the knee jerk rejection of a one tenth of potential employees.

[?] There are smart people everywhere, but on average, they congregate at the ivys. [sic] [?] wharTON” Wait? you?re trashing state schools when you went to Wharton? Dude: you went to an *undergraduate business school*? Not that the ”Ivy League” designation is meaningful anymore, but guess what? You?re not Ivy, just as I would not be if I got a Harvard MBA or JD. If you had gone to Penn, you would be? if you care about that sort of thing, which seems to be the case. Undergraduate business schools sadden me, because the kids going into them are reasonably intelligent and yet have no idea of what they?re missing by cheating themselves out of going to college and getting a real college education. ”Oh, and for the universities debate: the University of Chicago is the only real school left. althought princeton and mit are a close second.” There are a few ”real schools” left. Chicago comes to mind quickly, along with the top liberal arts colleges like Williams, Carleton, and Swarthmore. MIT and Caltech are great, but present the obvious danger of premature specialization? then again, that?s a problem for anyone gunning for grad school these days. Harvard, Yale and Princeton still have excellent opportunities and some really great students, but ”leadership” admissions lead to swelling douchebag/loser populations that damage undergraduate life.

    So if I were to want to get into finance, what would some of you recommend I do? I know very little about finance. Even applied math since most of what I did as an undergrad was focused on pure math. And on the grad level the subjects become even more theoretical. What field of finance could I get into and be successful at. I am in my second year of a decent math phd program (think along the lines of Duke, Cornell, etc). Finance is more like statistics from what little I know about it. HJM, ARCH (and its variations), etc. By the way, Georgetown is a very solid school. I have a guy in my program who went there and is brilliant.

    Dogg Pound Gangsta is an Eastern European high school kid from Queens, NY with a bad case of acne. He enjoys wearing G-Unit and Rocawear as he ”cruises” around in his mom?s Nissan on weekends with his ”boys”. They normally just get blitzed on Georgi vodka, drive around a little and go home. DPG, as he calls himself, hopes to one day get out of Sheepshead Bay and go on to work either in IB or S&T, where he will truly become a ”baller”. But his near-term goal is to finally ”bang” a ”hot chick”. His first bonus will be spent on some ”bling” and any remaining funds will go to treat his acne.
