In his cover letter to Bank of America Merrill Lynch, he wrote (in part):
"I am unequivocally the most unflaggingly hard worker I know, and I love self-improvement. I have always felt that my time should be spent wisely, so I continuously challenge myself ... I decided to redouble my effort by placing out of two classes, taking two honors classes, and holding two part-time jobs. That semester I achieved a 3.93, and in the same time I managed to bench double my bodyweight and do 35 pull-ups."
The hiring director sent the cover letter to Morgan Stanley, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo and more. He offered to buy drinks for "the first analyst to concisely summarize everything that is wrong with" the note.
I'm willing to offer PRB comment credit for the same. Click here to see the entire cover letter. On your mark, get set, GO!
