Desi 🐠 with school going children: How do we decide how good the school is? I am using greatschools.org and niche.com to get school scores but the ratings methodologies are different and complex. Advice?

Talk to parents in the school districts to get a better idea. Greatschools and others are just high level ratings and comments may have bias in them.

That’s long route. Is there any faster way to figure this out?

Ratings at times doesn’t tell you some of the finer aspects. Make sure to talk to parents who made the school decisions more recently. For pvt schools though you would have to do more research through the currently enrolled students / parents.

I am interested in knowing this too. My daughter is still a couple of years away from school age. But we want to move to a different neighborhood over the next couple of years and school district is one of my top most criteria. How do I determine that is a question I am trying to figure out. Talking to parents definitely not possible at this stage, need other ways to come up with a shortlist

Everyone is different. Different circumstances, etc. I get it. At 30 how much do you/did you have in 401k and Savings? Do you/did you own a home?

Brilliant or terrible idea- a company where you could send your product and they create a bunch of little sample sized packets that you can then toss in your travel bag/purse etc. Does this already 🤔

I had an interview with a CD today who sounded bored and unimpressed throughout the call. The slot was for 45 mins but it was over in 20. How worried should I be?

Would it be a bad decision to jump ship 5 months prior to the Consultant > Senior Consultant promotion? Looking for long term view. Potential ~35% comp bump going to industry, but not a ‘senior’ title
