This has been ongoing since 2009.
If you grew 6 inches since you got your suit, I'm guessing it can't be altered to fit you now. I'm also guessing you're not going to grow much more, but who knows. If you think there's a chance of outgrowing another suit, don't spend a lot on it. Because here's the thing - if you get an inexpensive ($200-$300) suit that fits, it will be a mega-upgrade from your current suit that's 6 inches too short for you. You don't need to spend a lot to make a huge step forward given...
Don't forget about Old Navy.
MBA is nature's second chance.
Talking about this year only and the experience of my peers who are now second year MBA students who just finished internships. Like I said I'm only talking about one school; I'm not in touch with anyone at other schools about IB. But I could see some of this being school-specific as people tend to come in clueless and move in herds. If everyone is trying to recruit into IB internships then yeah it's going to be a bloodbath, but that was the opposite of my experience where...
Foo - MBA hiring into the associate level is (from my experience at only one school) pretty robust. I've seen that (1) most people who did internships (BB, Boutique, or somewhere in between) got FT offers and (2) many of these banks are back on campus recruiting into FT people who did not do internships with them. Most of the people with FT offers (or even recruiting into banking in the first place) were not analysts before MBA. Also, why do you say that analyst program...

I'm not really looking for an answer, just voicing a gut reaction.
How do you know you're not just being compensated for risk? You're supposed to get high returns with high-beta stocks. As an investor, I would be more interested in the beta of your fund, not just returns.
If you go back and read his posts, you will see that he's not looking for that, and I think the argument makes sense. I say this as someone at an FT MBA who understands not only the value of networking and rebranding, but also the very practical skills you can learn in the classes if you want to. That whole element of coursework is sadly discounted into oblivion when these discussions get going.
