Why do you need to open up a credit card for business school? Do you anticipate your lifestyle changing as you incur debt and don’t have income??

What perks of the platinum make you think that’s the card to open during b school? Non of them align with the lifestyle you’d likely be living. I’d go with something with a lower AF that gives you points on things like restaurant/groceries

Delta Amex is general, no card is specific to b school

Whatever one with a zero Apr offer lol

I’ll be the first lawyer on the team. Any addition questions or considerations I should take into account before making a decision?

Anyone have regrets taking a pay cut to go in-house? I am a pretty junior attorney (2 years in big law) and have the opportunity to go in house at a large company (Fortune 25). However, pay is on the low end for Associate Counsel. Is a 60K+ pay cut (including bonus and RSUs) worth it for the growth potential? Maybe for the chance to move to a FAANG one day? My would-be department/area is very transferable.
