Not MBB but T2, can maybe give a benchmark? Not sure about referral as ACN Strat is pretty strict about campus hiring unless MD referral or stellar resume

I can take a look. I can give you a sense of if he should apply but applying online will be the way he should go.

Isn’t it super late in the recruiting process? Would think most of us have wrapped up recruiting by this point

“I’m starting in January but thanks anyway” yep, sounds like it’s for a friend 🙄

So the kid is in school and looking for an internship

I had a friend in my building help me out with childcare and this person charged me something very unreasonable especially when she was watching her own kid at the same time . I’m not going to say anything since it’s a temporary situation but I do think this will ruin our friendship. So annoyed and to top it off , she told me she gave me a discount . We didn’t talk about a rate up front but I assumed that since she’s my friend, I wouldn’t get taken advantage of.

My wife was able to get pregnant off oral fertility ....she has PCOS... she took progesterone and letrozole.

Its been 5 months since the baby was born and her period has not gone back to regular cycles - we hoped that the fertility and pregnancy would regulate her menstrual cycle.

Can we artificially create that cycle using progesterone so that she can have a period every month? I wonder if she would ovulate on progesterone alone too in this circumstance. Is anyone regulating on progesterone?

When do you tell your work that you’re pregnant? We had an oops and surprise! I’m pregnant and due at the end of March. I’m terrified to tell them but I feel like I should tell them sooner than later since I’m due during busy season. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I’m married & we have other kids but they’re older & I didn’t work in PA when they were little so this is all new to me.

Shot at H/S/W with the stats below? Also considering CBS, UCLA, and Stern.

Preliminary thinking is that story will matter the most and test scores are probably fine. I’ve heard arguments that 330 GRE is not enough to stand out as an ORM, and 3 YOE is too low to show clear leadership trajectory. Any advice?

I am very pregnant, due October 19th. I also have been applying at other firms because I am desperate to relocate and get out of my practice area. I never get bites, so my motto has just been, well, might as well apply, regardless of pregnancy. But I just got an interview invite to one of my top pick firms! Any advice on how to handle it? It will be a zoom interview, so I can hide the pregnancy, but I'm not even sure if that's the best route. Help me figure out my life, please! 😁
