It would be an incredible waste of time and money if you’re already in B4.

I agree with D1. Realistically you’d only take a few tax courses in law school and they would be marginally helpful, if at all. My law schools didn’t even offer M&A tax as a course option

Hello all,

I had a quick question

Had a call with audit leaders last week and were told that they haven't finalized the office building and they will get possession of the new building in Pune only by Jan 2023.

Currently they just have the ITS with the seating capacity of 30 people.

Now for audit they want us to go to office 2 days every week. How are we supposed to do that when they don't even have an office? But they are still adamant to get us back to office location by June 1.

It’s like they don’t know what to say or I make them feel awkward so they don’t bother…I’m trying to focus on a few that have been supportive but it’s hard…Any words of advice? 😞
