    Do you know that there's a sub-section for AMA threads? :P

    I suppose I'll be predictable and ask whether you encountered any prejudice while you were there?

    You have to be pretty smart to graduate from an Oxbridge university.

    So would you say you are young, gifted and black?

    Yeah I made some friends, if i am honest I wouldnt have minded just going to a more diverse university as it is very middle upper class white rahs predominately.

    Prejudice all the time, getting stopped my porters requesting to show ID, people thinking I was the cleaner and generally people saying I shouldnt be here because I am black.

    IB as in Investment Banking? Well obviously sales and trading, FICC trading or short term interest rates would be ideal but a stint in IBD M&A would be good still.

    That's pretty bad especially the last part. I had a cousin who went to Cambridge, I wonder if she encountered anything like this. We're not black though we're Pakistani. It just goes to show that while some people might be very intelligent they can still be extremely ignorant. There are some good examples of that on TSR as well tbf.
