At what point should we worry about low GRE or GMAT scores for a target school? Like does 5 points below median GRE mean “you don’t have a shot” or are you “safe” as long as you’re in 80% range and have an interesting story/decent GPA?
Are you not eligible for complimentary cabin upgrades on United if you buy a ticket with points?
Hi all! Would anyone know how safe Park Hill is? I'm specifically looking at MLK Jr. Blvd, about 5~10 blocks east of Colorado Blvd, near the City of Axum Park. I was told to steer away from Five Points, but I couldn't find much about Park Hill online. 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!
Looking to work somewhere where I can be more passionate about the work I am doing and Spotify & Coinbase seem like good starting points. I’m curious if theres anyone on here who’s jumped from consulting to either of these companies and what their experience has been like? I’ve only ever worked at Deloitte so want to get an idea of what I could expect. 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?
Can hilton points be used for any airline? Want to take my wife on a trip but dont have airline point and airticket to my destination is expensive. Have Marriot points also
Did anyone’s Marriott double points promotion stop showing in their account? Was supposed to go through end of Feb
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....
Can we consider cars from the 90s to be classics? Sub question: what's your favorite 90s-era car? Extra points for pics.

We are currently building the plan for the hybrid model we will follow mid October. (No specific date yet.) We have committed to an A/B model with groups attending MT and Th/F in person, working remotely the other three days. If you have an AB model do you deliver the same content to your students each day, regardless of them being remote or in person? Or is the lesson cycle one that begins on the first day you teach in person for each group? This second model seems complicated.
How do you keep motivated when you're just over it (the job)? I'm actively looking/interviewing but difficult to stay motivated. Besides the paycheck.
Just got hired, a week in. Hearing rumblings about “restructuring” and “realigning” of my team. I’m super nervous. Usually those words mean downsizing / layoffs. Is this concerning? ☹️
Hidden in the SPG merger details: Say goodbye to crossover rewards with Delta / Uber and lifetime status.
Hey guys. I have a technical interview with AlixPartners restructuring and turnaround team. This is for their summer intern position. I didn’t come from a restructuring background. Does anyone have an idea of what might get asked in the interview? Is it going to be very restructuring specific or some general accounting/ finance/ operational sides of topics.
With apologies to whoever is in the next room listening to me hack up a lung, being sick on the road sucks
I am currently serving my notice period. I have tested positive for COVID on Friday, as a result HR and management have applied 2 weeks of leave in my timesheet. Will this affect last working day and final settlement? Tata Consultancy
Diversity & Inclusiveness is hollow talk. If you are an Indian, Chinese or Black your chances of being a PP are pretty limited- ED is more feasible. Agree?
Offer from current client: 30% base increase, better title, decent career progression. Any reason why I shouldn’t be ecstatic?
Anyone in EYP’s software strategy group willing to speak with me? Have an interview coming up and would appreciate some insight into the process.
Optimal credit card churn strategy?
Considering move from healthcare consulting to private equity. No previous finance experience. Would it make more sense to go to a boutique firm or a giant like KKR to phase in and work my way up?
Will people extra pay to upgrade using points? It's just deltas way of reducing status upgrades isn't it?

United had an offer of 23,000 points for 4 trips worth $225 or more. They then make my leg $224.86. Thank you United.
How often do you guys see your parents normally in non-covid times? Do you feel it’s too little much or wish you could see them more? In my 20s I used to see them every other month but as I’ve “settled down” in my 30s it’s been harder with distance and spouse so it’s down to once a quarter. Feel quite guilty and sad about it
