re: San Diego Game - 10/2 - BostonAdam on 4/27/16 at 8:00 am
I agree on all except the food. There's almost nothing to do except eat in San Diego. Get out of the gaslamp district first off. Great food in South Park and the other close burbs. Also if you do go up to La Jolla they have some amazing food, look for Peruvian and get ready for the best tres lec...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

It's possible and it's good that you're starting early into your MBA. Just realize that there is a crazy amount of competition for only a few roles so you need to prove you're a better hire than the Harvard/MIT kids who have ibanking experience. It's going to be difficult. I know, I went through...

Honestly: if your top-tier school can't give you networking contacts, then you didn't go to the right school, and you're going to have an extremely difficult time landing in the industry. Also, if you don't have analyst experience typically in i-banking they won't want you. Staffing is very limite...

re: Official: Saints trade Sproles to Philly - BostonAdam on 3/13/14 at 8:50 am
I think the biggest reason for the lack of production is that defenses began scheming for him b/c he was our biggest asset. We didn't have WRs to open up the field and no running game to speak of so the screen pass was our entire offense in some games. It became very obvious and easily stopped.
