I know someone on the media side that got one. They were not paid more for it

I know someone who got one Account/FCB. She left for Facebook.

Ooh would you happen to know if she got all her programs paid off? Or just some? And dis she leave right after she got the degree?

Beginner and trying to get my finances in order. Income: $200k+. Maxed out 401k for the year. I have $60k in my savings account (just paid student debt off this year). I’ve searched the bowl… Are next steps: (a) invest (maybe $30k?) in ETFs and add to it each month, (b) open a HYS at HMBradley to hopefully get a high interest next quarter? I’m not convinced about the mega back door Roth (whether it makes sense for my situation) so putting in only a small amount there. Any thoughts? TIA!
