Does anyone have experience or thoughts on pursuing Georgia Tech’s OMSCS while at MBB? Thinking of taking one course per semester while working.

Doing anything “extracurricular” while at MBB, while not impossible, can be pretty tough. But as long as you’re willing to use your Thursday nights + weekends to do it... go for it?

Do it. People make such a big deal out of it but honestly it's fine if you can manage your time. I was in OMSCS and taking 2 courses at some point and that was pretty stressful but still doable (slides for 12 hours + coding for 2-4 hours of before bed). 1 course is fine, especially if you're willing to sacrifice a weekend day.

On ApplicantLab, the coach goes on quite a bit about having a lot of white space on your resume (easy on the eyes), etc etc. This is totally wrong, right? Ive explicitly a Wharton admissions officer say to use margins to your advantage (pack more stuff in) and have seen an application guide at an MBB, where the resume templates include very little white space. Obviously every word should be valuable, but just wanted to check my sanity here since AppLab offers good advice elsewhere.

Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?

I’m currently on the bench and had a senior colleague reach out to me about assisting with a work item. I volunteered to help (but I can’t charge my time).

The project is spinning down and they’ve lessened the team members, but I’m still helping out with tasks. I don’t mind helping at all, but it seems weird. Am I thinking into this too much?
