Best way to bring up the sloppy work of paralegal w/partner? He doesn’t mind bc he isn’t super type A but I’m constantly spending hours cleaning up things she did wrong or can’t master (simple doc formatting..). She doesn’t see the urgency or importance of clean/mistake-free work & partner won’t reinforce anything I request/recommend.

Broke up with my gf of 2.5 years last night, but she’s not accepting the decision. Kept asking for one more chance even that’s happened like 3 times already. Making me feel really guilty about breaking her heart. Like it’s already hard enough to go through this and now this on top. Felt like we had foundational values issues and a hard time communicating, hence a lot of our issues. Feels weird today and would love some advice 🙏

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
