Do most students get subscriptions to the WSJ or other financial publication?

At Darden, we're lucky enough to have the WSJ (both online access and in print every morning) provided to us for free through a sponsorship by M&T Bank. I'm sure it's part of their recruiting plan, but I give them a free plug when I can because I really apreciate it.

However you get it, I would recommend reading it regularly while you are in business school.

It is a better paper, but less US centric. You really need the WSJ to recruit for finance in the US because they cover material more thoroughly (headline stuff, I prefer the FT, and the Lex).

That said, at $2 I am not sure I will be buying the journal for the rest of the summer.

If you're considering IB, you HAVE to know what's going on in the WSJ. My class actually was quizzed by a Banc of America Managing Director when we went for a visit during Week on Wall Street. He wanted to know what story was in the upper-left corner of the paper that morning. I think that's a bit extreme, but it didn't totally surprise me. You MUST read the WSJ daily to be in IB.
