Let's table this discussion so we can do a deep dive analysis on the due diligence performed on the work product to identify all low hanging fruit which is most impactful leadership and then circle back/touch base with the project team who has the bandwidth to implement changes which will take the work product to the next level in order to provide the most value-add and move the needle.

“High level”

YES. During my first month in finance, I thought this meant “advanced.” Like if you got to a high level in a video game or something.

Was rejected by Columbia ED after interviewing; now I’m not feeling so confident about my Wharton and Sloan post-interview admissions prospects…anyone else in the same/similar boat? Also, does anyone has any insight on how much the Columbia alum feedback has on chances of admission (e.g., is interview feedback evaluated with a re-review of your application like Wharton or MIT, or does admissions just take the interviewer’s feedback on whether you’re a yes/no and go with it)? Thanks in advance

I accepted an offer to join a national firm after graduating this summer. The pay is decent, and I am relatively happy so far (it’s only been a month since I joined). Today I received an email from a bigger, more prestigious firm I applied to months ago. They’re asking if I am still looking for an Associate role. I would like to interview with them to see what they have to offer. Would that be considered ‘disloyal’ towards my current firm that I just joined a month ago?

I am not from the US and taxes overwhelm me; the first few years I did them with TurboTax and it was fine but then I entered a domestic partnership and had a baby. I also bought a house (that I don’t live in), so I went to H&R Block to give it a try assuming they could advise me on optimizing my return, it seemed that they are completely transactional as the person is just typing numbers in a form. Any recommendations on how to navigate personal taxes with an actual advisor?
