Is it worth writing to ad-coms to ask for GMAT extension post deadlines? Would've targeted M7 but maybe T-10 now. And maybe try for the Darden waiver?
Just a thought: I wonder if worries about layoffs happen at other firms as well. However, we just post about it more outside our bowl

Being recruited for a partner position at an IT Consulting firm (TCS, WiPro, Infosys). How much should I ask for? Not familiar with comp structure as I come from the Strategy Consulting world. Thanks!
If I am checked in and have a confirmed seat, why the hell do you want me to talk to an agent or go to a kiosk for my boarding pass? Come on Delta, don't become the AA app.
