How hard is getting a “150” on the EA exam?

I got a 155 with about 3 months of prep, was practicing at 158-160, I get test nerves as my 590 GMAT can attest though I was practicing near 700. The EA was a shorter test and allowed my disability to not take me off the deep-end when trying to focus.


Also just got the Veritas Prep books used for like 20$ and worked through those as well as the GMAT core books

Best bet is to kick ass on the integrated reasoning portion though. Makes your score ceiling and floor much higher in the next two sections

Pretend You’re an NBA player...

(A) Would you stand for the national anthem or kneel?
(B) How would you feel about your other players standing or kneeling?

As a reminder our goal on this bowl is to fully understand other people’s POV and to share your POV effectively so it’s fully understood. So that empathy can happen...not necessarily to change someone else’s mind. This may or may not happen.


I’m notoriously bad with “aesthetic” and design. I’ve hired all my vendors, including lighting and florals, but am now starting to think through what other decorations/logistical items are needed - signage, dessert table trays, guest book, bar top, etc... whenever I google how to start thinking about wedding decorations all the sites are just telling me to rent linens vs buy frames, which... isn’t helpful. How is everyone else here tackling this?!

Hi fishes!

I've been working as a freelancer for the last 1yr as a UI/UX designer. Now I'm thinking of switching back to a full time job in the same field. Usually companies ask what's your current and expected CTC. In this situation, what would be the best response? Shall I give them my last invoice that I got paid or tell them it's variable?
Also, what should be the expected CTC with 4 YOE in Product design or UI/UX role?

Any suggestions and thoughts are highly appreciated!
