I think you have SOME chance but would say they are almost definitely reaches. If I were you I’d get another year of experience and try and get your gmat up another 20+ points if you have your heart set on those two programs (I’m assuming full time)

There is always a chance. Just apply to both and see what happens.

No certainties, but I think you're in with a shot. Plenty of folks with that basic profile make M7.

Feeling disengaged my last few days working at this boutique firm as I leave for a large firm in a different practice area in another city. While the past couple of years here have been okay it’s dysfunctional, disorganized, and when I was new I’d get yelled at a lot. It was common to see crying in the office. Something has changed (likely because of the Great Resignation) bosses have been nice, but I’ll never forget how they were. So much work to do b4 I go and packing to move. I’m checked out.

Married for 14 years with 5 kids. Since the start, my wife has had anger issues. She’s not violent, but will go on ‘anger benders’ for days where she cannot be kind to me, stonewalls, and even leaves. Sometimes this is based on a bad argument; most recently, it’s based in a story she conjured up and believes about me having an affair with my neighbor, even though it is 100% false and I’ve tried to show her that. Is this a sign of a personality disorder? Or something else? How can I support her?

Curious to hear how other SC commission structures are.

This feels particularly frustrating as I’m working on several million $ deals, but could potentially see only 0.25% of the money I’ve brought in for my business. This is on top of our normal base variable if the company hits their numbers. What are others like?

Would that be something that is looked down upon from the admission officers point of view since I would technically be unemployed when I’m applying or is it fine if I talk about traveling and the international experience etc?
