I’ve been interviewing and interviewing and still waiting to hear back from all the organizations. Is it better to hear back first and wait a little more or to keep applying in the interim? I feel like it may be good to wait but also if I get an offer any day now then I won’t need to.

Serious question: is anyone genuinely happy that they’re a lawyer and enjoy what they do on a daily basis? I’m not talking about the joy we get when something is over/resolved. I’m taking about the actual daily work.

My associate just told me that they are taking a new job in midst of an incredibly busy planning season.

Selling a bunch of GMAT material:
Have half month left in my TTP subscription - can sell for $30 (monthly cost is $100)
Also selling all manhattan GMAT books, OG guide 2020 & 2016, and GMAT Official Advanced Questions guide. All in perfect condition.
Taking the exam in a week (first attempt). Have a second one scheduled 16 days after so using this as a more of a practice run. But right now is my time better spent on:
1) finishing the final chapters in TTP (Geometry/Functions) or
2) repping as many OG problems as possible?
For context got a 710 (Q44 V44 - left one quant question unanswered) on a an OG Mock today.

Thinking of applying to NYU by their Round 2 deadline (Nov) and the rest of the schools in their Round 2 (Jan) - if I am accepted to NYU will I have to make a decision before hearing back from the other schools?
I hope my Bschool has a great stoner culture . Wish I could ask the admission team about that 😂😂😂😂😂

Chico State > M7
Honestly? As someone who got into several m7 scold and will be attending one this fall, at the M7 level no one truly cares once you get in. Are Harvard and Stanford incredible? Yes. But once you get in you realize there are a lot of other factors that go into a decision (scholarship, location, long term goals, significant others etc.) so it doesn’t really matter (except for maybe Harvard and Stanford) once you get in. Plus once it’s this competitive a lot of decisions are kinda random. I got into CBS and waitlisted at Wharton and I’ve met people in the opposite situations. Just apply to the schools you want to go to, see where you get in and then make your decision. My perspective changed A LOT once I got in and thought about where I could spend 2 years and the kind of people I wanted in my network
Nope not going there bc of scholarship money, not sure I want to end up in nyc, I’m also not interested in finance if that helps. I wouldn’t make decisions based on what you read on blogs etc at this point. You cannot go wrong between booth and cbs just think about where you’d be most happy and which fellow admitted students you liked, scholarships, the environment you’d thrive most in etc. Congrats btw!
An alternate view: HS > WB > KCS
Agreed w above...
T1A - HS
T1B - WB
T1C - KCS
It’s all splitting hairs though. Going to any m7 won’t close many doors for you.
