Interviewing for MIT Sloan Fellows MBA (1 year program) shortly. 10YOE and joining MBB in a couple of months, post-MBA level role. Reading some previous FB posts disparaging the SF program and feeling a bit downhearted about it. Are Sloan Fellows really looked down on by the normal (2 year) Sloan MBA program? Are there better alternatives for a 1 year MBA? MIT has been a dream for a while but it’s kind of like being told your baby is ugly…

What is v10/v20/v30? I work at Latham but in London and we don’t use that terms at all in the UK. We have magic circle for the top UK firms and white shoe for the top US (although most people don’t really use white shoe, they just assume all US firms in London are decent due to the salary disparity).
I barely drink alcohol and I’m so tired of feeling pressured to go to happy hours during a pandemic with people I barely know. I never go because I don’t wanna travel all the way to sit there awkwardly and just drink a water while staying masked (if it’s indoors). Does anyone else find work happy hours a waste of time?

What is it about law that glorifies morning people so much? I am NOT one and wfh has been so great for me in terms of being able to set my own schedule, but now that we’re starting to go back to the office I’ve noticed some pointed comments about people not being in by 8am. I bill as much (generally more) than other associates, so why does it matter if I start at 9 and work late?? I’m finding it hard to go back to the arbitrary-feeling 8am office start when I know I’m not going to be productive.

I was recently informed that I cannot work outside the MSA of the address (Chicago) mentioned in my H1B and hence just returned back to Chicago.

Is there a maximum time period during which I can work outside of Chicago? Thank you.
