Week 13-14 and end of internship search

Term 2 is surely keeping everyone busy - with multiple projects that require presentations and reports, to quizzes, to lengthy homeworks, to late night classes.

However, the biggest time-drain was the entire internship process. I am lucky to report that I have finally accepted an offer for the winter internship. Dont want to name names, but suffice to say that it is a well known bank on Wall Street. I am surely relived to get this out of the way!! Thursday, we have an alumni event in San Fran in this trendy place called Thirsty Bear - a tapas bar. Looking forward to it!!

On another note - an excellent article on Wall street now targeting smaller investors in structured products. If that takes off, financial engineering will surely become mainstream - dont you think?? WSJ.com - An Arcane Investment Hits Main Street

Good pointers on MFE admissions can be found on the forums of Global derivatives and Quantfinance.org, look for posts by my good friends - Mindcraft and Correctomundo.
