Help please! College daughter signed lease at her sorority house. School went remote so she’s never moved in. Sorority is threatening to give her an eviction notice which I assume would end up on her credit record... Any ideas how to fight this? The only reason she didn’t move in was due to Covid and school closing dorms... We got an abatement from the dorms last semester. Any ideas?

I am a nurse manager for case management at an acute hospital. I have both social workers and nurses. The management and discharge of COVID and non COVID patients has become extremely difficult.

I just got overlooked for a promotion to someone with 4 years less experience and now she is my senior attorney. I have 6 bosses.

Right before covid, we were going to buy a $500k property but since fiancé works at a startup, we wanted to mitigate risk and offered a rent to buy agreement with the seller. They agreed bc this was now height of covid but ultimately it fell through due to the seller getting an upfront offer. Due to the current situation, we’re still not 100% comfortable with buying as we’re just both generally risk averse and are exploring 2 options:

Know this is a long short. But is there anyone in here who came from Africa. Never went to a big University, not from a rich family & eventually broke into Investment Banking in the US,EU or Middle East? I work at a Big 4 (Senior Associate-Audit) in Zambia. Crazy hours, low pay. IB has always been a dream,but even if I saved up, it'd take me more than 6 years to get the money for a top University. Writing CFA L1, but I'm told no one cares about it, same as my BAcc or ACCA. Only a Top MBA Counts.
Can u help me with the in-hand amount please?

Looking for advice about what types of creative (but still corporate) non-legal roles would be easiest to pivot into. I’m an entertainment/IP/privacy lawyer but have only been practicing for 1.5 years. I already know the law isn’t for me though and am trying to brainstorm what other career paths may be a good fit. Main complication is that I need work visa sponsorship. My first thought was marketing/advertising but other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
