Hey y'all so I want some advise. I'm applying r1 this year plan right now is 3 M7 and 2 top 15. One of my M7 is HBS which I don't expect anything from. Should I apply to more schools round 1 or wait see what happens and apply R2 if needed?

You won’t have anything in the tank for R2 if you really work R1. Pick 1-2 fit schools where you really love the program & people and there’s little chance you won’t get in. Do that on top of your current list and you’ll be set.

For context, Deloitte. 3.92 gpa at a well respected small private school, double major in Finance and math and minor is computer systems. 740 gmat. White male. Working with an advisor for two schools essays.

No top 25 programs? Your stats are solid but things happen. I’ve seen some people dinged from UT Austin/USC/UNC with those stats

I did something similar and wish I went about it differently - feel free to DM!

Of course!

I did 3 T15 (Stern, Tuck, Ross) and 3 M7 (Wharton, Kellogg, CBS). Dinged at all 3 M7 (bombed my CBS interview), then of the T15 I was waitlisted at tuck, in at stern, and half ride at Ross. Ended up choosing the half ride ross. Im Deloitte (GSAP) white male with 3.5 gpa from large avg state school and 327 GRE. Im happy with my results, if I could’ve changed anything I would’ve maybe swapped Wharton for a different M7 or for Haas/Yale, but hey I ended up at a great school for very cheap so even if I got into those I still would’ve picked Ross

I would spread out R1 and R2. Personally only apple is to HS for R1(hired like, 5 consultancies), dinged after interview, then completely rewrote the story by myself in R2 and got in W

Had very similar stats (3.8 gpa, state school, 750 gmat) and got into 3 M7s (only 3 schools I applied to) R1 this past cycle. If anything I’d cut one of the top 15s

I have been an adjuster for almost 5 years, although I have loved almost all of my time adjusting and find it fun, in a sense, I am so ready to take my skills into underwriting.

I know this will sound cliche but I find myself to be very passionate about insurance and I do well when interviewed, but it is difficult to get a response for underwriting applications because they all “require” underwriting experience.

It's been a challenging year for me, including a rejection from GSAP. This week, I got into my top choice MBA program - and an M7 to boot! Just goes to show that sometimes Deloitte's decisions can be misaligned to the greater world.

Hi all, need help from the community. Recently i have given interview for senior security engineer at Sprinklr and got selected. Now there is an HR round that i have to attend, so, need help regarding the feedback of the company Sprinklr and how much should i ask in terms of CTC?
My current package: 11.5 CTC + 1.1 Association Bonus

Currently holding offer from following companies:
1. PNB Housing : 18.9 CTC + 1.8 Joining Bonus
2. Rebit (RBI Company) : 20 CTC + 1.5 Joining Bonus

Over the course of 6 weeks, I had several panel interviews and the next step was a final in-person interview. Each round I had great feedback and my correspondence with the company recruiter was consistent and friendly. Until now. After a week of radio silence since my last interview, I sent a gentle polite follow up that has gone unanswered for almost a week. I saw that the original JD was reposted on LinkedIn a few days before my last interview (ugh). Am I being ghosted? So confusing.
