They had either found a great one bedroom to rent or had purchased a condo somewhere in Manhattan when I graduated from college in 1999, a bunch of my fellow first-year classmates at GS proudly proclaimed.
During the time, we constantly scratched my mind and wondered the way they could manage to spend $2,000+/month for rental or $500,000 for a flat whenever our base salary was just $40,000 at that time.
When I reached understand my classmates better, however, we discovered quite a few originated from really rich families. There was clearly a disproportionately many classmates whom visited personal universities. One classmate’s dad have been the Prime Minister of Canada.
