Howard Weil bought out. Could be great for NOLA, could be awful. [LINK]

A B4 would be a lot harder to pull off since its a giant partnership. You can't just buy out the stock. I can't imagine why anyone would want to do such a thing in the first place. Service lines, sure, but the whole thing? Nah.

No way the gov't would allow a B4 to acquire another one.

Service lines for sure...I think audit will always exist, but tax and consulting definitely have flex to them.

With regard to the material in L2/L3, would you say that you use a good amount in your current career? Or is all the studying/preparing more just for the end goal of those three little letters at the end of your name.

I use stats, equity, and accounting stuff every day. We do a lot of fixed income and private equity/hedge fund valuation stuff too so I use that a lot more than I would have otherwise expected to. So yes I think the material has a practical every day purpose along with an academic one.

I would love to be utilizing some of the things i learn to reinforce...unfortunately the whole reason i'm doing the CFA is to make it easier to crack into the that world.

I passed Level 1 in Summer 2005. Anyone know if that credit is still good or how long it will be good for?

Sure, I think that's the case for most people. I mean we use a lot of it but its not like I'm planning on retiring here. At the same time, we do a lot of stuff that I get no practice with. Yesterday a bunch of people sat through a four hour webcast on monte carlo sims. We use them a lot but I haven't used it once since I've worked here. This is also the first day that I can really get away without doing jack shite the entire day.

I don't think they lapse at all.

I may consider going back for L2 and L3 at some point. I am a registered CPA in Illinois. It depends on where my next career route is.

Registered in La, but I actually just let it lapse accidentally. Luckily the company will pay for it.

You have 5 years between passes and then you have to restart.
