Need opinion.. am I screwed?? Admission officer from LBS reached out for a quick 1:1 after seeing my interest. I scheduled an appointment for today but had to cancel yesterday last minute more than 24 hours before because my moms surgery was moved up due to covid so I had to take care of her.

Any suggestions on paid / subscription services such as CNBC Pro for investment advice / stock research for investing?

Sold nearly half of my stocks in Covid days for 5% loss. I follow all the market news daily but I feel like I need some paid / subscription service for better guidance but not on commission basis.

Any Law folks willing to help. My company just rolled out a COVID Survey and indicated the following clause. The completion of the US COVID-19 Vaccination Status Survey is a baseline requirement to be fully eligible for year-end rewards that you would otherwise receive. Failure to fulfill this requirement will result in a 10% decrease to any base pay increase and to any variable pay award (where applicable), submitted for you as part of year-end reward decisions.
What are this group’s thoughts on Michigan Ross online MBA or UNC’s online MBA? Deciding between going this route due to COVID for a T-15 school. Can only imagine the bar for admissions is much much lower.

Help needed! Asking for a Brazilian friend who just recently had his O-1 visa approved (first one after an OPT). he got started on a couple jobs, but he’s always getting stuck on the “your I-94 is expired” issue. Some lawyers told him to leave the country, but he can’t seem to schedule an interview in any US consulates, as most are still closed/not taking non emergency cases due to covid. Has anyone been through this situation or have any tips on how to work around it? Thank you!
I’m sure this has been asked before—but how do you get through work when going through a breakup with a long term SO? I have a new male boss & cant really tell him what’s going on. I’ve been taking PTO scattered. I live alone and NYC Covid winter alone is already feeling so overwhelmingly sad and lonely on top of everything else.
There are days I can’t wrap my head around things in our schools system. Our county will more than likely be shut down this week due to drastic increase in covid cases. We will know today. Yesterday, teachers got a harsh lecture that we were the cause that Covid was spreading in the schools (it wasn’t nice), but now sports can play when our county is shut down. I can’t make this stuff up. Our society would never survive a true plague.

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
