Fly out and try it! + Perth - better beaches, more laid back, generally friendlier people according to everyone I know who has lived there (I haven't). - Perth depending on your point of view - smaller, fewer options when heading out at night, most isolated capitol in the world. If I had a good offer to head back to Aus I would try Perth over Sydney.

Do your homework on student placement and what firms recruit on...

Has anyone on SF done a masters in finance?

I am split between focussing on finance or getting an MBA (most likely an...
Has anyone here enrolled in a 'Global' executive MBA - Kellogg, Georgetown-ESADE etc? If so, opinions on the experience, especially the quality of instruction, would be most helpful.

This is the first picture I have seen of the new CLS - I like it. The Aston leaves me feeling a bit underwhelmed and longing for the Maser instead.
Having also lived in SE Asia for a little while I think that this style looks okay - when done well and in context (SE Asia or at least a tropical location). I do not think it would be practical in many places, and might not 'age' well, visually outside of SE Asia. If you want to try it out though - do it and enjoy it.

My car just got flooded and I'm thinking that if the insurance company totals it a SAAB might be a good choice. Always wanted one and they've got to be cheaper now, right? Although I was a fan of some older models - I would say no. You will face dwindling parts and service support and very low resale...
