We were told we’re good guaranteed until 1 July (and likely beyond). Been holding my student loan money in savings just as an emergency fund since they’re not accruing interest until September. If September rolls around and I’m not laid off, I’ll dump all the money back into my loans before the interest starts back up.

Should I renege offer from MBB?

An MBA recent grad. I signed with MBB last year. However, I have always wanted to do tech PM. I couldn’t find PM job in Fall and just signed MBB offer I have. I recently got an FAANG offer. It’s PM function, hard to break in with consulting experience. I declined the new offer during interview stage and again after they gave me initial offer, but it is coming back with 80k more in annual compensation. It made me so torn!! Should I renege MBB offer?
