Push for more internships. I never got one bc I ended up playing college football and put all my time into it. Now I wished I would have pushed harder for the summer internships. Lost a lot of opportunities starting off bc I didn’t have any experience.

I really want to pursue an MBA to try to pivot into a different industry but I’m getting so many (mostly older) people saying things like “ you should think about settling down” or “you should consider how an intense career is going to affect your future children” or “isn’t where you are good enough?” It’s really been bugging me because I feel like if I was a guy, I would probably hear much more supportive comments! Anyone else experience this?

Is HBS worth it for late-stage VC? Got in but not sure if I want to pay ~$200K tuition + ~$400K opportunity cost if I know the job I want next and I think it’s attainable now. Context: I spent 2 years at MBB and am finishing up my 2 years in UMM tech PE. I’m targeting growth teams at Accel, Sequoia, Bessemer, IVP, etc. I hear the argument for branding and networking, but is it worth $600K+? Also feel like the value of an MBA is decreasing, even if from HBS.

hey! Are there people who made 150K+ who still decided to get their MBA? How much did you pay for it, and what salary did you make after?

it’s wild how much casual racism there is in the HBS threads. maybe the reason you didn’t get in despite your top stats is that your essay pointed to the same type of low EQ that goes with complaining about how unfair it is.
