Depends on the school (rent cost) but feel like you'll spend ~$40k a year outside of tuition

I think I spent closer to $12k over the two years. That'll cover some big international trips and plenty of room for domestic travel

Sounds like a simple case interview... Quick! The CEO is about to walk into the room and ask you about your findings.

$1k a month for expenses plus market sized rent plus a few big MBA trips. If you want to do a spring break course or class abroad, those are usually $3-$4k fee plus airfare.

Now I know why MCK sticks with beeswax. Give the kid a break.

I joined consulting before covid and really enjoyed the lifestyle (travel, events, socializing, afterworks). I’m young and it was a lot of fun.

Anyone have any thoughts on using Venmo for crypto purchases / wallet? Seems like it’s not at sophisticated, e.g., very few coin options and likely no interest for holding. Any red flags?
