I wouldn’t be so concerned with not fitting in at UCLA just because you “aren’t rich”. Not everyone in Los Angeles is wealthy (incl me and I’m sure a great many of your classmates). You’ll make friends, and there’s a lot to do in LA that doesn’t require money (beach, hiking, etc). Also agree with C1’s point about Austin however

Just to throw this out there: lots of tech companies are relocating to Austin...it sounds like you really vibe with the scene there. Would you considering staying post-MBA?

Yep! I guess being on this bowl, people shit on anything below T-15 so thats why I’m conflicted. Is UT a good brand?

I LOVE UCLA!!! Currently a student and the culture is fantastic. A ton of really smart peers and as you said the resources for tech recruiting are on par with Stanford or Haas even if the name brand isn’t. Also an excellent place for entrepreneurship if you’re interested in that at all.

Also also the brand is still excellent, but unlike some of the comments I’ve seen on this bowl from folks who are HSW or bust, we’re pretty chill and down to earth about it because we have the perspective of not being a”top school” 😂

Cornell!!

Texas forever! Great point from C1. There are lots of tech companies there and it will only continue to grow

I’ve been working to an unhealthy degree lately. And I’ve been making the excuse that I have a lot of work right now, but I’m starting to wonder if I’m addicted to it. Part of it is anxiety and perfectionism. But my behavior is now actively harmful to myself and starting to harm my marriage. How do I stop? I’m not talking work-life balance. I mean, how do I say, “I don’t care that the client wants this tomorrow and I’m not close to done, I’m going to sleep tonight”?
