    Yeah, that seems nuts if you're still in college. I could think of plenty of better ways to spend 6-8k.

    I didn't read that before-- you might be retarded. Save the money.

    I love that he's pre-med but doesn't have the grades for a paid internship.

    How the fuck do you think you'll get into med school if you dont even have the grades for some internship?

    It's too late to apply for paid internships, but I can verify that they often pay very handsomely. I had two of them in college (both with Fortune 50 corporations) and each paid more than $10,000 for 11 weeks. One actually paid close to $15k.

    Finance and energy.
    Basically: most Fortune 100 companies apply one internship salary rate across the board, which means you will earn the same regardless of what work you do. The finance internship I had was pure shit in terms of the work, but I still got paid the same as the m&a interns in the company. The energy one was much better but the same applies: as a social scientist I earned the same as the engineering students even though I was doing work that was outside the company's revenue generating operations.

    I think I spent the $10,000 I made from my banking internship on taxis, blow, and alcohol. And foods. And suits. And shirts. And alcohol and blow. I was left with about $1500 when I finished.

    So you really bought into the Wall St. lifestyle [​IMG] . I absolutely hated my finance internship and I am pissed that the company I worked for is still doing ok. However, I hear my division is getting outsourced to India, which I am perfectly fine with. Worst BS job I've ever had.

    Life must have really sucked for you. 10k in less than three months. It's a rough way to live.

    I was being facetious. Although I did spend all my money on taxis because I literally could not get myself to take the subway and waste an extra 30 minutes of my life when I was already working 80-100 hour weeks.

    Totally. Slaving away for a faceless corporation for a "good name" on your resume = xxxtreme ballin' points.

    maybe you should give stripping a shot? I clear $300+ a night on a good night. the downside is all those offers from men and women to take it 'further' in the back...

    I don't know where you worked, but when I last revised my resume I definitely downplayed my finance internship due to the recent public resentment of the industry. Since I only did the internship for resume crafting purposes (never even wanted to go into finance), I kind of feel it was a waste of time. Had it not been for the $$$, it would undoubtedly have been a waste of time.
