Whats’s the ideal CV length for UK mid-level roles (4-5 YoE) to engage recruiters?
Is 1 page containing punchy & concise XYZ points preferred in the UK over 2 pages inc. a bit more details of projects/ tasks?

First year associate thinking about making the just from medium sized reputable IP firm to In House. Started at said firm summer of 1L year as a law clerk/patent agent in May 2019, have worked through school and full time as associate since Sept 2021. Feeling very “stuck” in day to day work. Love the patent/IP space but drafting and pros w/minimal human interaction is getting very difficult. Thinking In House would be better, but not sure how much experience needed. Thoughts?

URM, 710 gmat (got up from a 440), solid volunteering, 3.5 ug from t30, first gen Latino - grew up working in the fields. Realistically, where do I have a chance?
The Johnson interview is via Skype. Does anyone know how it works? I booked my interview online and provided my Skype ID but there is no link shared or anything. Do I need to download Skype on my laptop and wait for the interviewer to call me? Or will there be a link to be shared with me close to the interview date?
R2 Sloan applicants - did you include quantitative areas that you covered in high school if it was just part of the math curriculum? Eg I never took stats or probability in college but definitely had a solid enough foundation from high school to not need a refresher for the GMAT...
Do schools distinguish between what group in a firm you’re in? For example, would it be seen as worse to come from Accenture Federal Services than to come from Accenture Strategy, or do they just see Accenture and bucket you based on the larger firm brand? Some other examples: Deloitte Commercial vs. Deloitte GPS, McKinsey Implementation vs. McKinsey Strategy, etc.

Hey guys, I'm thinking of starting to study for the GMAT (1 year into ACN). I got a 700 on my first diagnostic with 0 prep or context. Weak in quant (presumably since i dont know any shortcuts, questions took too long). Do you think 740+ is attainable if i study hard? (btw I thought the 700 might have been a fluke so I gave another diagnostic without prep and got 690)

How important to the T10/M7 MBA Application Process is it to have a prestigious/well-known Undergraduate degree?
I'm currently finishing up my undergrad and while my current GPA is 3.9+, my school is not a well-known university and any prestige it does have usually originates from its engineering programs, which I am not a part of.
I need help making up my mind on where to attend.
So I have two offers on the table : Tuck vs Yale SOM. I am getting 40k scholarship from Tuck and nothing from Yale.
I'm planning on going into consulting afterwards and am not sure what school to attend. I know Tuck's group oriented teaching is slightly more geared towards consulting.
What has been making me hesitate is the global presence of what Yale has in its name.
Would you say Yale has almost equal chance of getting into MBB as Tuck?

I’ve heard a lot of talk in this bowl about being an URM is an advantage. Does being born in another country and being a naturalized citizen matter at all from an admissions perspective? Not banking on this or being a URM but was just curious if this impacts any metrics schools report on their class profiles.
New to Fishbowl?

Depends on what those are about. If it’s “landed on Mars”, “Olympic gold” etc – you can add 10 more if you wish. But if it’s duolingo Korean A1 certificate – drop it.
Yep, had 3, got in everywhere.
Cut down to six already, still looks a bit much but I am struggling to see what to take out
Can you post them here? It's tough to know what is filler and what would be beneficial without seeing the list.
Try to split it into two sections maybe? Like one section for “community/leadership”, and one section for “personal”
Rule of thumb is 3-5 but hey
