    aha, yeah I think Cambridge is much better after undergraduate particularly for finance. If you want to make money then definately not IB. It's crap now. I do alright yeah (obviously not going to openly say my annual salary). As for tips, I'd say learn about the industry, and the things interviews want to hear and don't want to hear. You need to find a way to differentiate yourself from the crowd.

    Do you think if you had no self-restraint and an ego comparable to that of these kids below, you could/want to outdo them?

    And how do you feel about them and those images.

    Probably. I think if you work in this type of industry generally you always want to win. Meh seen so many of those types of images doesn't really do anything for me anymore. They aren't too representative of what its really like, although some things are more than others.

    I thought so. Why does it irritate some people though? Like I've seen people who only follow them just to express hate, it makes no sense.

    What is your favourite colour?
