Can someone please educate me on why the MBA applications are going to get more competitive for next year? It makes no sense to me, shouldn’t people be focused on getting a job to pay bills instead of getting a ton of student debt with no guarantee for a job upon graduation / ability to pay back loans? Isn’t this also even more pronounced for international students who want to take a big role of the dice for US bschool? I can’t imagine studying here and having to return to the undeveloped world.

I’ve been trying to get a human capital consulting role at Deloitte for a while and haven’t had any luck. I’m wondering if applying for Workday roles makes more sense and then trying to eventually make the change as an internal candidate? Does this happen often at Deloitte? I have almost 6 years of workday experience so I feel like my odds would be better in getting the workday role but I don’t want to end up getting stuck.
Any advice on exit opps if I want to be involved in capital allocation (strategic M&A, divestitures, creating value,etc)? CFO track? More of a Corp dev role? PE portfolio companies could work?

Team member gave her three week notice. I will likely have to pick up majority of her work for the foreseeable future (which is very different from my assigned work).

My therapist just told me I'm depressed..do you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own? Like take care of yourself, it's ok to feel such and such, etc. I'm still newer to therapy so wondering if that's the common experience? Do you ever have moments where you're like wow that actually is eye opening and I wouldn't have gotten that from reading self help books and websites etc?

Anyone heard good things about CFGI? I’ve heard their comp structure is gimmicky with overtime pay. But if I could make the same base there as I do in big 4 with the chance of some overtime pay is it worth it to give it a shot?

Hey guys! So I interviewed with McKinsey Digital: Round 1, interview 2: case + PEI. It went pretty well (at least according to me) but it has been an entire week since I’ve heard anything from them. I’m getting really anxious now but I also don’t want to show my anxiety to the recruiter which is why I haven’t sent an email to check in. Is it normal for them to take this long and should I still be hopeful for a positive response?

Does thinking about ur project at home count as "billable hours"?Apparently my manager thinks so. The joy of fed consulting.
Let’s say for the sake of the economy the gov advices Americans to go back to work—shouldn’t those of us who can effectively still work from home continue doing so?
I’ll be short of RSM’s billable hours goal of 1600 by around 300 hours by the end of fiscal year end. How fucked am I?
