My assumption would be that if you’re smart enough to earn an MBA, you’re smart enough to believe in science and get vaccinated.

Even if vaccinated you can still catch and spread covid as easy as any unvaccinated person. The difference is you probably won't feel or get sick bc vaccine is protecting you. We are seeing an increase of vaccinated sick ppl that feel 100% fine which is good bc vaccine is working but also bad bc they can have it and unknowingly be spreading it. Also an anti-vax/covid denier nurse (that actually worked in the covid unit of her hospital too) just died last week of covid so trust me education is sadly not stopping stupidity here. Also have a few ppl I personally know with multiple degrees and education who are sadly anti-vaxxers

Hey team - would appreciate your feedback I'm currently a SC at Guidehouse making ~$100k. Very bored but considered a strong employee and on manager track.

But if I join D, that would delay an year and I would apply in Fall 2022. What would you recommend from MBA and career sense? At this point, I'd be applying for an MBA at age 31/32.
