Currently flies below the radar, but definitely a good bet for the future. Small class sizes compared to most b-schools. From what I've read, Yale SOM has a small endowment, but the school is also "unnamed" so if they ever decide to go that route, I'm sure they can raise a good amount of money.
I was cracking up last night. "Where's the other one? Greasing up in the bathroom?"

Mmmm... that's some good no-no juice.

Then I realized how much it sucked.
And just so I add some value to this thread, what do you mean by "corp fin". Finance function at a financial services firm? Finance function at an industrial company? Business development? The BIWS modules have my recommendations, assuming you mean modeling for business development.

Yeah, I once explained how we were taught multiple regression...

The way he teaches relative valuation incorporates regression analysis. From what I've seen in practice, most people just use multiples.
Depends on how solid the buyside shops are. I wouldn't necessarily consider buyside -> b-school -> buyside again as an easy route. Not to mention the uncertainty/lack of advancement opportunities at smaller firms.
