Kellogg is the most fun, highly recommend it


Talk to alums and current students. Visit the school. Sit through a class or two and watch the dynamics. Go crash a happy hour ;)

Ha. Glad D1 read the full post #consultantStyle. I'd find some alumni and get their impression/could also try and find a blog from a current/ student/alumni

Thanks PwC 1 and D1, I'll definitely try finding some alumns / current students. But yeah, D1's other answers aren't feasible. Schools are out for summer and I'm looking at applying this fall. I can obviously go visit as soon as school is in session to help narrow down final choices - but need to get a solid list for essays, letters of rec before that time

What are you looking for in the business school program?

School may be able to put you in touch with alumni or talk to alumni at D using LinkedIn. I would think that most would be happy to talk to you about it

Hi Guys, I need some help.

I had joined kpmg global services recently (7 months) back from one of the IT services companies in an advisory role however now I have received an offer from HCL with 40% hike to my current CTC. What should I do.

I have heard that KGS gives decent hikes and bonus payouts however the work is completely backend with limited customer interaction and limited good quality.

Can someone throw some light on HCL as well, what is good and what is bad and which to choose

Family law associate. I run a docket of about 40-50 cases and work about 50 hours a week. I currently make about 125K (self-employed, no benefits). Between jury trials for CPS termination cases and the highly adversarial nature of family law, I find this job to be incredibly draining, as I have horrid work/life balance and struggle with constant anxiety.

I recently got an offer with a personal injury firm. 110K, full benefits, for a non-litigation/docket manager role. Thoughts?

I have been applying and interviewing since February for new FTE. I have been interviewing at Adobe, Meta, LinkedIn, Amazon, Accenture…no offers. A couple weeks ago I started applying to contract roles, and so far 3 offers in the last 24 hours at Microsoft. Great teams super relaxed interviews. Why is it so much more difficult to get FTE? I’m gonna be doing the same work? Granted the benefits would be amazing at any of the mentioned companies, the base comp is in the same range as FTE. Wtf!?!?

Hi Colleagues,
So today I received a call from a big law Firm that rejected me this time last year asking if am still available and interested. Looks like the candidate they hired didn’t work out.....
I really thought I was a shoe in here and was shocked when I didn’t receive an offer. The partner said they were worried I was too used to doing advanced work to be happy doing junior level work (at the time I was a second year from one of the big 4 L&E firms-think Jackson Lewis etc...)


Starting full time in about a month and a half, and now looking for a studio apt in Chicago. Any insights on neighborhoods/apts? Im currently looking at Oldtown, Rivernorth, Fulton Market areas
