My stem OPT ends 2022 but I will be transitioning to H1b this October. My firm requires I complete the last page of the I-983 form but I am not sure what date range to put since I still have 12 months on the stem opt. Does any one know if I should put the range to end September 31st or next year when the stem opt actually expires?

Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.
[Advice needed] I have a job offer from US based company and they are willing to sponsor me on L1. However with new proclamation, it looks like the process will further be delayed by 3 months and I can get a valid work visa by June/July at best. Alternatively I have an option of relocating to Canada as well. This process should be fairly quick and easy. My question is - 1. Should I opt for Canada or wait for US Visa? 2. Are there any chances that Biden administration overturns this. TIA

L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?

In house lawyers for global companies: do you expect your international travel to rebound - ever? I am at a firm where I practice in government enforcement and investigations, and I always saw myself going in house to do this work and travel abroad frequently. Are those days gone because of zoom?
So.. my husband and I live across the country from my family, including my young nieces. We haven’t seen them since before COVID and are not seeing anyone inside who is not vaccinated in our life, and this has not been a problem. We made a plan to vacation with my family to see them again this summer. My BIL is refusing to get vaccinated. Everyone else is vaccinated. My parents and sister aren’t happy about it but feel there is nothing they can do.

Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies. I now decided to take 6-8 months and seriously prepare for cases/mental math and try them again next year. I currently have Victor Chengs book and few others. What else would you recommend for me? How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?

Have been wondering how much FAANG product managers get paid vs MBB for a like to like year of experience. Example, 4 years out of mba one would be Principal at BCG vs level 7 PM at Amazon. What does the delta look like at 8 years? 10 years etc?
2020 plans. Work on getting ACCA qualification. Find myself a man. Buy a house. Not necessarily in that order. Overwhelmed at the moment....
Maybe a strange take but I think that we should be more in touch with our internal bodies. We can send astronauts to the moon and rovers to mars but there’s no easy, portable way to scan our bodies to see what’s going on inside (e.g., a DIY full body xray or MRI). I think this could be the next gen of weighing scales that also show various health metrics, track fitness, etc. It could help with prevention and diagnosis. I guess it’s bad for health providers who make $ today from this. Thoughts?
