I am a special education teacher and I was hoping to start the year by gifting my inclusion teachers with a little “survival kit”. If you were to receive something like this, what would appreciate finding inside?
What's the diversity at GSD&M like? I'm from Texas, went to school in Austin so I know Austin has its own diversity issues-- but missing my home state. I'm in nyc and have only worked here post grad.

Is there any reason to lateral from one big 4 strategy practice to another other than a comp bump? Working on great projects at great clients right now with a good network, and up for a promo.

Secured 750 (Q:49, V:42) in GMAT. Targeting to apply for EMBA in 1-2 years. 9 YOE. Current role: Senior Manager. Target universities: M7, INSEAD and LBS. Question is, for GMAT exam I just focused on Q & V part, and skipped IR & AWA part (IR: 1 & AWA: 3). Now does it make sense to reattempt with a focus on other parts and risk 750 scores, or you think it’s not needed, as for EMBA’s GMAT score is not the only deciding factor and 750 score is enough for most universities irrespective of IR & AWA.
As someone who enjoyed being in a trading role prior to consulting, would you move back? Not sure what the comp would be for a muni bond trader, or if the position is becoming outdated, but trading always excited me.

Any insight into Mastercard Advisors? Have a new grad opportunity there. My start date at a B4 strat got postponed so decided to interview around. I'm interested in data + analytics and would want to go into industry eventually, but conflicted because unlike BA programs at CapOne or Visa, you're still working for an external client. Feel like there will be a broader variety of projects in B4 and while I'm casually interested in fintech, I don't want to get pigeonholed in FS so early on
