Downtown Toronto Insurance Defence - what’s the grid looking like these days? Is 120k for a third year associate (1600 billable) asking too much?

No. Toronto scale is 110-130 for most first years at mid-sized to large firms. I guess it depends on if this firm only does ID, which changes things (for the worst).

I have a job offer for home health PT in the Chicagoland suburbs. The owner stated the wages depend on how I file my taxes- which threw me off guard. I am filing with a w4 and was offered $67 per visit. Would this be average? Salary websites do not indicate anything about different taxes. A w9/1099 would most likely be a higher wage but I am not interested in filing that way.

I need help making up my mind on where to attend.

So I have two offers on the table : Tuck vs Yale SOM. I am getting 40k scholarship from Tuck and nothing from Yale.

I'm planning on going into consulting afterwards and am not sure what school to attend. I know Tuck's group oriented teaching is slightly more geared towards consulting.

What has been making me hesitate is the global presence of what Yale has in its name.

Would you say Yale has almost equal chance of getting into MBB as Tuck?

My MIL has stated several times that she wants the whole family to be there when (while?) she's dying. She is very adamant about that. However, I don't want to watch her die and I certainly do not want memories of watching someone die stuck in my head. Should I tell my husband? I want to be there for him, but this is just ...not my thing.
