“My laptop went blue screen and shut down twice during the the call. I am sorry for any inconvenience it caused. Don’t you hate IT issues at inappropriate times? I sure do! I’m working on resolving the issues. Thanks for your understanding.”

Everyone’s had the blue screen of death. Just tell them what happened, apologize for any inconvenience and move on.

Thinking about a career change from insurance defense to district attorney. It will be a SIGNIFICANT decrease in income for the first few yrs, but I can't think of any other "con." I don't like what I'm doing & think I'd like being a prosecutor. Pros for me include more trial experience/client contact, less hours & more time for a future family, no billing, no travel, loan forgiveness, and generally feeling like I'm actually helping people.

Hoping for candid advice to get exceptional ratings. I want to apply to GSAP in 2 years and am curious if anyone had concrete advice of getting exceptional ratings besides making sure to work hard and take on responsibility. I.e. did you talk to your manager and ask if you’d receive an exceptional rating? Do you need to talk to a partner about that? Do extra and consistent “market” initiatives for partners and SMs you do client work with help you get the exceptional for client?
