Thought exactly the same thing here.
Jack Ruby. The thought that this sleazeball shot Oswald in a fit of patriotic outrage seems ludicrous to me. Then again, I grew up in modern America, so the thought that any concerned citizen acts out of patriotic outrage seems ludicrous. Seriously though, JFK conspiracy theorists always focus on supposed physical improprieties (the head snapped back, magic bullet, yadda yadda yadda) when there's a glaring logical inconsistency right in the center of things. How did the...

Let me clarify on that part, by "Investment Banker" the guy probably mean true investment banking (M&A, IPO, etc.) Printing paper (as how any asset back securities used to work) is really structure job and how much risk to hold instead of sold off (even if they weren't able to) is really trading...
Doesn't have to be one or the other. I doubled in History and Econ. History was my education, econ got me a job. Simple as that.

I wouldn't add the "take that into consideration" bit. That seems almost pushy. Just let her know that you've interviewed at department A but think that you'd be better suited and more of an asset for department B.

In reality, you'd determine how much you could save annually and work out the cash flows on a yearly basis to come up with a solid FV. It'd take you years to save $200k; probably almost as long as it would to pay down a $200k student loan. So that value...
