becoming partner requires a totally different set of skills. namely, you have to be an alpha bro over 6' tall with a great smile and social skills. hth
I'm sure you're joking, but I've only met a handful of partners who were alpha "bros". This isn't i-banking where you want some hotshot to make up some crazy financing instrument.
