How long should you wait after your original GMAT before retaking the test? Missed my goal score by 30 points (but was scoring at the goal score in practice tests).

You’re in striking distance of your score. Take it every 16 days until you get it.

That’s good to hear. I felt absolutely horrible about my test performance (was legit expecting low 600s after I completed math and verbal) but was encouraged by the fact that I got 730. Maybe on a better day I can capitalize on the variability.

16 calendar days

I know that’s the technical limit, but should I wait longer?

What was your first score? If it’s 700 to 730 I’d retake it in 16 days but make those 16 day’s count. If it’s 730 to 760 might be different.

It actually is 730 to 760

As much as time as you need to practice. If you are as prepared as you can be, 16 days. If not, formulate a weekly plan to do a few hours of targeted practice based on your score breakdown (quant or verbal); I say give it a month.

Ideally, I'd like to commute into downtown via public transit 1-2 times a week, so any insights into Denver buses would also be greatly appreciated!

I’ve heard coinbase is pretty tough hours (with good pay) and Spotify is more laid back (with not so good pay) - 8 yr Mgr at Deloitte

I work in a lean team. When it’s me + NSP + a senior partner on the deal, the senior partner refuses to speak to me directly and my work would go up the chain of command. The NSP + senior partner would discuss the rationale for certain positions in the key docs w/o explaining to me or speak to clients directly w/o me, and I’d be asked to send out the revised draft to the opp counsel. When I get calls from opp counsel on tougher points in the drafts, I’m not really able to answer. Is this normal?

Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines? E.g. non-stop economy btw Detroit-Seoul // Delta redeeming 160k on its own route while Chase UR 123k & Korean Air 80k for same route (code share)... I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....
