So here are some thoughts. I'd imagine s/he is a fairly smart and accomplished person to get so far as to interview with you. So I'd talk to them like a person. No need to drill down on how many rolls of bounty towels it would take to pave i95 between D.C. And Boston. I mean we all know the answer to silly questions like that. Or at least most of us are creative enough to come up with ones on our own. If you want to be a prick to this person at least be creative. Or god forbid don't be a dick. But that's doubtful.

Law school question: If a con man steals someone’s property and sells it, then the true owners don’t figure it out until a few years later when the value of the property has increased significantly—they are entitled to the property back or the value of the property today…correct? Anything else would not achieve Justice and would rob the owners of the appreciation in value that they would have realized if they hadn’t been stolen from.

I desperately want to go to one of the MFE programs so that I can change my career into quant.
