I can’t help but notice recently how much plastic surgery and fillers/Botox has taken over these days (maybe it’s because I’m a woman approaching my 30s idk). But is this what people truly want to look like now? Is this the new standard of beauty? Is this what men like to see on female partners? For example, I saw photos of Megan fox recently and was shocked at how much she’s changed over the years. I feel like everyone tries to look like a kardashian! Straight men: is this what you like?

As someone who works in MBB, would it be worth it to try to get deal experience in IBD before going to PE? Is there any case it would be more or less worth it (ex. worth it if certain banks/groups, but not generally)? I want to hit the ground running in PE, and I know the lack of modeling experience can be difficult to overcome…

What do you think cutoffs for fund size categories in VC are? Obviously it’s much smaller asset class than PE, but would something like this make sense:

<50M: microfund
<100M: Seed Fund
<500M: Early Stage (A&B) “Midcap”
<2B: Growth (C+) “Late Stage”
2B+: “Megafund”

Funds in larger categories can do smaller deals, but larger check sizes make more sense for them.
