With the new 2 deadlines for intern/FT recruiting at MBB; out of curiosity, is there a significant difference in terms of competitiveness for each deadline? I plan to apply for the 2022 internships for the Sept deadline, and have heard that the Fall cycle will be significantly more competitive due to the lower number of spots available after the first cycle.

You heard correctly

I think the intern recruiting will be less marginally competitive (as compared to intern recruiting in August) when you compare it to the difference between full time difficulty. But yeah, both cases the fall will be more competitive (just a numbers game at the end of the day).

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?

Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
