Spooky Story Post: I was working on a deal that died in April. I haven't heard or seen anything new about that deal but I periodically get emails that someone is saving new docs in the data room. I asked the partner and client about it and they said the deal is still dead no one has used that data room in months...

I work for a small firm (about 20 attorneys) and make 90k. I’m coming up for a raise discussion in a couple of months but don’t know how to go about it/what is reasonable to ask for. I bill about 35 hrs/week at 400/hr, so I think I deserve a bump, especially considering the posture of the market. Any advice/feedback from similarly situated associates or partners at similarly sized firms?

Trying to understand how schools bracket candidates in terms of the industries candidates worked in? I’m currently in advisory (accounting focus) and trying to break into IB.

Does that mean for MBA purpose it might be easier for me to apply under my current experience as the competition might be in my favor?

While I may have the title of manager, I am still an individual contributor. The type of work I do involves quantitative analysis/data analysis/science.
