I’m African and am dating an Indian girl whose parents are very traditional. They’ve been trying to find her a match. What are my chances of being accepted into the family? I would hate for me to be the reason she is estranged from her family. Anything I should do to increase my odds with the parents? I’m starting Hindi lessons in a few weeks.

Hello All. I am a recent licensed attorney in NY and AZ. A former judge from Albania. I hold a JD from ASU. Unfortunately, being only focused on trademark associate positions, I have not landed my first year associate job. Actually working in house as a trademark paralegal.

I work in Product, and I’ve been thinking about getting my MBA/MPP combo to transition into more tech for social impact roles. I would want to go to school full time so I can fully embrace the experience, but honestly I’m afraid that I’m going to lose my edge by being out of the industry for 3ish years. Any advice?
