Applying to T15 in R2. Currently have a 700 GMAT (43Q, 41V) after taking once. Even if I raise my quant to 47, which would be impressive for me, I’ll still be at a 700 (possibly 710). 3.6 undergrad GPA. Worth retaking? Or just focus on the rest of my applications?
I got hired as a consultant (wohoo!!) again and am looking forward to the grueling traveling hours. When I was in my former city I used to use Delta to get around but here it seems like I should go for either United or AA. Which do you all prefer and use? I have had bad experiences with United but that may just be a few.

Hi Fishes! All help appreciated I received an offer from my dream co. - McKinsey. Have another discussion with HR for comp. & joining details, once I accept the offer. I want to join after 4 months (2m of notice period at Deloitte & 2m I want for personal self). How do I take that up? How much deferral of joining is normal? Suggest some reasons (something that sounds genuine | Honestly want to sit home for 2 months and relax, but not sure if HR will accept it) Share experiences if anyone?

Moms help me. I'm resentful that I got pregnant and now stuck dealing with the exhaustion of a newborn and recovery. My soul mate Hubby wanted kids, not me, but since it was "something he couldn't live without" I agreed since I was on the fence. He's super helpful and we have family to help out, which is more than most moms. But the exhaustion and PP depression is making me resent my decision and him. Baby is perfect, a regular healthy full term joy. I'm so blessed. But so miserable. Help.
Whats the etiquette when youve gotten an offer, you counter, and they agree to your counter? Is it wrong to ask for some time to think about it if youre still interviewing with other companies? How to delay?

Best resources to learn about financial planning? I’ve been allocating a portion of my income towards 401k and some mutual funds, but want to become more knowledgeable (considering major future expenses such as house, kids, etc). Any recommendations on resources would be greatly appreciated!
