I received a job offer today for an entry level position. I lack experience in this field and didn't tick off all the boxes in the job description. I completed 2 conversational interviews + 1 additional interview with a skills test. They were very impressed with my skills test and all the interviewers seemed to like me a lot. I think the offer they gave was fair with market price & it pays more than my current job + benefits. I've always been told to negotiate but should I in this case?

I’ve been thinking about taking the GMAT for two years but because of Covid/me not deciding what i want to do, i haven’t decided if i want to go down the mba route. Turning 28 soon

Me, my brother, and my parents have a family dog in midwest. He's been with us for 4 years now! I am his primary carer and he loves me the most. However, I am planning on starting my MBA in Boston next year. I really want to take him with me, but I won't be home most of the time with classes and networking. So I am planning on leaving him with the family for 2 years (of course I will be visiting) Will he think I abandoned him? Other family members love him too! Just not as much as I do.
