Here’s Your Public Accounting Interns Open Thread for Summer 2012

If you're like me, you checked out on earlier than normal this week due to the long weekend of bad decisions ahead. It's a welcome reprieve for those of you that are firmly entrenched in the day-to-day amusement park that is public accounting. However, very soon the latest crop of presumptive capital market servants will be join you in the bliss. Yes, I'm talking about the summer interns and they are getting restless:

Can you please get another Summer Interns open thread going soon?  I'm starting in two weeks and need somewhere to be anxious. 
It's understandable that these young business casual soldiers are slightly uneasy about the hours at the copier that will fill their summer days, not to mention the possibility of hazing, pranks, and ultimately, the possibility of a fulltime offer.
 
So consider this your thread for questions, answers, advice (good and bad are both welcome), directions to the tickmark room, and anything else that is appropriate. If you're still not satisfied then email us your intern query with "Intern Question" in the subject line and if it's not the stupidest thing we've ever been asked, we'll hopefully get to it. Play nice.
