Does anybody else think that the Wharton Slack & Discord groups are kinda quiet/inactive compared to admit groups from other schools?

Yeah I’d agree. I think the groups are fairly large for people to actively engage. I’ve seen smaller groups which are very active

How do I find out about these interest based WhatsApp groups?


I agree. I wasn’t sure if I’m missing something...

Yeah I deferred from last year and I distinctly remember it being super active. This year's is a little mellower for some reason - I suspect it has to do with the fact that Round 1 had a welcome weekend and so some people knew each other (whereas nobody's really met each other here).

Guessing the NYC group is pretty active? Any others?

My manager is a woman, and she is always commenting on how I look in front of everyone - and it just gets so weird. Ex: on Zoom calls with everyone, she’ll call attention to my outfit, or to my extensions, or to my make up when it REALLY ISNT THAT BAD! Plus we Zoom with all other guys so it’s like UGH stop making it weird. And it’s never a straight forward compliment - it’ll be like “Hey arent you cold in that shirt?” *attention is automatically on my shirt”.CONT.

Seeing as we are going to be WFH for a while longer... Anyone have recos for remote workout classes (ideally HITT) that can be done over zoom? I’ve used a personal trainer for years and am a confident trainer but have never done classes, let alone remote. Thank ya 🙏🏼


Any other juniors get mistaken for senior associates? I’m in my late 20’s, but I think I look older and tend to dress less casually than the rest of the office, so that could be a reason. I was in another practice area for a few years, but am a junior first year associate as I lateraled over into another practice area. Partners at other firms call me and attempt to negotiate deal terms and structure directly with me, and investment banks ask me questions during Zoom meetings. Is this weird?

I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?

I love teaching art but am having to teach remotely to 1150 kids, k - 5. Have about 54 amazing elementary art teachers in my district that share SO much! I could retire (34 yrs), but just don’t want to because I love what I do! Feeling like my students aren’t getting what they should because I am struggling with Zoom, Microsoft, safe YouTube, bitmoji, embedding, downloads, editing, etc. Anyone else feeling this way?


Hi Fishes,

I got an opportunity to join Microsoft in "Microsoft Teams" product team in Bangalore. Anyone can give me an idea about this team? As we are seeing many layoffs across the industry, can someone tell me how safe is to join "Microsoft Teams"?


Hi! Question. How does your company handle the communication between customers and solution engineers during integration? Do you use Slack, Jira, etc? We are using Slack but some customers won’t use Slack so then it’s bleeding over to other forms of communication that are less ideal. I’m starting to wonder if we would be better off doing Jira tickets. 🙃

I’m pretty buzzed and was on a zoom party, but the host left and ended up ending the meeting cause he had no clue he could do that :/

Idk how, but I got the offer. Still wondering if it’s real (it’s been 30mins since the phone call) because I thought I performed so poorly. I wouldn’t have passed myself. I hope the interviewers didn’t make a mistake (accidentally mixed up evals for another candidate, or the call was meant for another candidate w/ the same name). I do want to thank the Fishbowl community though. So many of you took the time to share your experiences and encourage me. I couldn’t have done this without you.

Rising 2nd year here: been rethinking my choice as an M&A attorney. I've had a rough go of it over the first year-and-a-half of practice and am thinking about moving to a different practice area.

Would greatly appreciate input from others.


Do any of you use sun beds? I really want to be less pasty and more evenly colored. Realistically I won’t consistently use self tanner or spray tans. I am very tempted to try a sun bed on an infrequent / low level basis, but I hesitate because I know it’s bad for you. Thoughts?
