Clarification needed: actual fire / meaningful fire drill, or some prank by a kid? Agree with the above posts if this was a genuine fire / fire risk, but would ask for points if this was some prank and/or if the hotel had the alarm going off every five minutes (aka some sort of glitch on their end).

A key question is what time it was at. Big different between 8 pm and 3 am. I think you're entitled to something if it kept you from getting a proper night's sleep, which is the main thing we go to a hotel for.

Was it the hotel's fault, e.g. malfunctioning equipment? If it was a kid, collect your points from the kid.

Bunch of people next door to me smoking weed. Worked til I couldn't keep my eyes open at midnight. Evacuated 1am and needed to drive 3 hours to another client meeting at 10am...points!?

I moved to US 5 years ago. Intra company transfer. I am fairly successful here however sometimes feel guilty of taking away American job. Why do I feel this? I have unique skill set.

News happens. 45 point run up in ES in one hour. We ticked into new highs. But, as long as we are within 10 points of the close, we will fill the gap, meaning some pressure on the open. Obviously, got blown out of my sells, but have reestablished up here at a 93 average. Short from 3093

Please help. I am debating between taking the gre and the gmat. On quant, I scored very high on in practice exams for the gre but the highest I got on on the gmat was 55th percentile. Verbal is the opposite, but the degree to which my quant score on the gmat is low is worse I think than the degree to which my verbal score on the gre is low (if that makes sense). Should I take/report gre? I’m wondering if well-written essays make up for a lower than average (by like 2-4 points) verbal gre score
