Visa question: wife on H4EAD for past 2 yrs, was on H1b before that and has approved I140 since 2014, employer ready to sponsor h1. Does the employer need to file i140 again for H1b or can use previous i140 for the change of status from h4 to H1b?
Getting married next month and we’d like to have a joint checking account to cover shared expenses, however I don’t want to miss out on all the points I can rack up by consistently using my delta platinum card (spending thresholds = point bonuses, etc). Also my credit card bill will likely be a mix of shared and personal expenses, so how do couples go about this? Open to any advice. Thanks!

Connecting in Heathrow for a last second trip - is a rapid test ok? I don’t have time to get PCR results. Fully vaccinated and not leaving the terminal (eg no immigration).
My background check is taking forever and now they are asking me to provide my letter of separation for a job I held 7 years back. This is making me anxious since I am also in the process of H1B transfer - I just want them to tell me if I passed the check or not before I resign. - Anyone have an experience with a spotty background check and how fast/tedious it was. For ref for both my last jobs (in US) it was seamless.
Has anyone in the US on H1B/L1 moved and not reported the new address to USCIS? How big of a deal is this? Should I be very concerned?

Applying to T15 in R2. Currently have a 700 GMAT (43Q, 41V) after taking once. Even if I raise my quant to 47, which would be impressive for me, I’ll still be at a 700 (possibly 710). 3.6 undergrad GPA. Worth retaking? Or just focus on the rest of my applications?
For data science roles, senior (L6) at AWS or post MBA level (specialist track, so same pay as generalists) at MBB? Comp is 20% higher at AWS just to start. But maybe looks like MBB has better upside - solid path to promotion to manager level with solid comp increase. But worse WLB and it's unclear to me whether MBB data scientist on the resume is up to par with big tech data scientist on the resume. Coming from big 4 so I am considering brand so I can do better with future resume screens.
Sunday scaries...want to hear how everyone gets ready for the grind on Mondays, especially with meetings that start at 8:00 am. I hate taking away from family time Sunday nights. I’m struggling with WLB, especially with the “always on” culture and constant client asks/deadlines.

I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?
Planning for a family (of 4) trip to either Greece or Portugal in late fall this year. Flight costs are almost same. Any pointers as to which one would provide biggest bang for the buck? We're mostly laid back, don't care for top end luxury, not great hikers. Just looking a relaxing vacation.
