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

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.
Damodaran is the man. He normally only teaches at the graduate level, but taught Corp Fin one year to the undergrads - probably the best class I took during my four years. Keep in mind though, academic valuation is fairly different than what's used in practice (not sure if that's good or bad).
My favorite sci-fi show. So glad it got renewed.
Pretty sure V won't come back next season (based on their ratings and what happened in the finale). It's a shame, I liked the show. And Laura Vandervoort sure was easy on the eyes.

Good article from last year in the WSJ: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...696162858.html Most public pensions still assume an 8% return on assets per year when calculating liabilities, which is a pretty high hurdle.
I was pretty neurotic about sending thank you emails during recruiting. I honestly believe people don't care whether you do or don't.
