Consulting Exit Opportunities

Came across a role from BCG titled Principal but in the description states project leader and principal consultant. Expectation is only 5 years of relevant experience. Where is this in the hierarchy?🧐

Post MBA roles go Consultant > Project Leader > Principal If no mba, typically need a decent amount of experience to get a C offer (with MBA need some too). The slotting as PL or Principal would likely depend on experience as a manager elsewhere (time, role, level) vs the specific posting.

Matched with a girl 10 days ago. First few days were great, lots of texting and we FaceTimed and spoke on phone. Since then the texts per day have gone down to like 1-2 or 0. No communication. We’re supposed to meet for an outdoor dinner on Thursday but I’m taking pandemic seriously and am thinking of backing out. I don’t want to risk my health for someone who is not communicating with me. But also want to get thoughts to see if I’m overreacting. If not for Covid, it wouldn’t bother me.

Moving: My SO and I love Chicago but hate the winter, lack of access to beautiful outdoor scenery, and the taxes. No kids yet and don't want to have "what if" regrets later. What's a good city to move to? Things we love about Chicago: amazing food, music scene, comedy, diversity, plenty of interesting things to do, ok COL compared to other big cities. We're considering Austin, Denver, Portland but having a hard time narrowing down / also open to other places. Thoughts?
