Can anyone recommend a certificate or course that is actually useful for developing professionals and/or reviewing performance? I don’t want/need something that is just a credential, I’m actually looking to get some formal grounding in these two topics so I can overhaul processes at my consulting firm.

I am a first year associate in Biglaw. I have been put on an improvement plan to increase my billable hours. My supervisors have commented that have not been getting work because I need to improve my efficiency.

I’m a 2016 grad making $120k in a small to mid-size regional firm. I’m based in Nashville. My firm’s management is trying to survey other small to mid-size regional firms to get a feel for where the comp is now, especially in light of the big law increases that are making headlines, and to see just how far below market we may have fallen. Any additional data points from smaller regional firms (especially if you have a presence in Nashville or across the SE) would be appreciated! TIA

Thinking of applying to M7 schools and really unsure about my chances. I am latin american, started in a LatAm office at MBB and x-fered to the US last year. I have 3 YOE and a military background. I have an engineering degree with pretty bad GPA (3.1) and a solid GMAT (730). Is M7 out of the question due to GPA? or is the MBB brand and financial sponsorship strong enough to overcome? What are your thoughts?
