I’m freaking out. I can’t keep up financially. My student loans are over 1000 a month. My rent is close to 2k in NYC. My low salary has me using my Credit card to eat. I don’t have family to fall back on. I’m 25 and feeling trapped. I know I need to budget better and am starting there but wondering what others to do cope and if I should be freaking out as much I am?

Hi everyone, hope you are doing well. I applied to BCG and received an email from them telling me I was on the waitlist for interviews. What is the chances of getting an interview if I am on the waitlist? I am not well connected with BCGers, any recommendations on who to contact? Do any one of you think they can help me or connect me to someone willing to help from the inside? I applied to Atlanta, Boston, and Miami. I am on a F1 visa which makes things harder, MBB being kind of my only options.

As an immigrant it’s so difficult to find work that you actually love. Growing up my parents taught me to value money and not my work. This country does the same. I’ve been meaning to find work in legal field so I can work as a paralegal. But it’s so difficult to find a firm who would sponsor my visa too. It’s been a struggle lately to survive. I would love for some insight from my fellow law colleagues if you have any tips I should pursue or any one I should approach to find a job.
