One other thing to consider when choosing schools: pay attention to whether or not you genuinely like the alums you meet. "Networking" becomes less of a chore and more like making friends when you actually like the people. When I decided to go back to school, I started paying attention to all my col...

Graduated Kellogg (northwestern) in the last couple of years. Can't speak for all of the top 10's admission processes but for Kellogg it's about having the right "story," which includes credentials.
GMAT, gpa, respected undergrad program, good work experience with a solid direction and perspecti...

This is all awesome information, guys. Let me ask one more question: are there particular attributes/features that you honed in on when you were deciding between models?...

[quote]How is your screen mounted? [/quote]
TBD. Construction is just beginning, so I'm assuming all options are still on the table. That said, I'd probably lean toward a pull down screen for no particular reason. Is one better than the others or is it a matter of personal preference?...

Sorry, I should have been more clear on that. I will get a screen, assuming that's a requirement. Is there a dramatic difference between the screens and the projection screen pa...

Hoping for some keen advice from my Tiger brethren.
We're currently building a house with a media room, and I'm clueless when it comes to projectors. Any of you OTers know anything about these? It'll be mounted on the ceiling and project onto a wall that's ~12x10 (don't know exact dimensions)...
| Money Talk|| re: If you had 120,000 in the bank. - rlanders23 on 6/4/13 at 10:35 pm|
Not necessarily true. With many employers, you don't have to invest equal amounts throughout the year, meaning you can front-load, or in your case, back-load your 401k. Basically, instead of contributing 17,500/24 or 26(based on how often you get paid)per month, you'd simply invest twice that amou...
| Money Talk|| re: Where can I find the cost of capital of my company? - rlanders23 on 4/3/13 at 9:40 pm|
Where's the capital coming from? If it's coming from the bank, I'd assume it'll be very cheap, but this will likely depend on your company's size, rating (if applicable). If I were in your shoes, I'd use something very low (in the 5% range), but I could be wrong.
If my quick math is right (wo...

Sorry if this has already been posted. Interesting that these guys are getting raises despite their performance. What the article doesn't tell you is that this affects many more government employees than just those in Congress, and I've heard that the estimated impact is actually ~$1B.

I have one of the lower-end BB suits, and I like it. That said, I spent <$700 on a custom suit made of better material, and it's noticeably better in both quality and fit. If you want a nice suit and not something in theh Jos A Banks or Men's Wearhouse price range, I'd highly recommend going the c...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Delta Status Question - rlanders23 on 11/21/12 at 8:52 am|
Not 100% sure for Delta, but I'm fairly confident the answer is no. Typically, the status is only achieved by actual flight miles, not including all the bonuses. That said, there's often an unwritten rule when you're that close to the next level where they'll bump you up as a courtesy -- I've had ...

I wouldn't bother trying to explain. If these morons can't understand how to get to the 133% number, you're wasting your breath. Seriously? It can't be right because it's over 100%? Wow!...

[quote]Thanks for the links. I currently have the main Official Guide for the GMAT Review . I don't have the Verbal and Quant specific books. Do you recommend getting them too? [/quote]
I think the book you have is just as good (contains the exact same stuff) -- no need to get the two others.

One other thing: I'm finishing up at a top school next month, and I can tell you the GMAT is a much smaller piece of the application puzzle than I thought it was. It's essentially a small hurdle that you have to jump over, but it's not even close to the most important piece. If you've got a degree...
| Money Talk|| re: Who here has taken the GMAT? - rlanders23 on 5/12/12 at 8:53 am|
Take online practice exams here. I found the scores to be fairly in line with my actual score. There are a limited number of tests (or at least there used to be), so use them wisely. My suggestion would be to take a practice exam, assess your weaknesses, strengthen those weaknesses via the resour...
