Lol everyone knows Cornell is a state school at best

1) don’t insult state schools like that
2) Cornell is quite literally a state school

Lol I’m at S and the gmat median has been trending downward. This 680 GMAT pulled me through all of HSW. It’s all about that delicious narrative. People need to stop freaking everyone out with their top 1% stat posts!

D1 - Nope, but I have an Asian friend who went to H and who had a sub 700 score

M1 - It’s been awhile but I did a white boarding session with some friends who also applied to b school. We went around and wrote down what made us unique, what do we want to do post school, and what have we done in our lives since childhood to show that we care about that thing (much harder if you just want to break into something typical like consulting or investment banking - in those cases some people embellished about their career goals to fit a narrative)

S - I don’t know about that one. I grew up in the states and I’m only an ally

Crying 😭 from... laughter?

It is that competitive though. People with great stats for anywhere else are turned away from HSW because they are still below par relative to that applicant pool.

Hi guys, hcl offered me E3 band , consultant position for its GCP practice. How’s is the project ? Any idea ? My joining is next week.

My mental health is really suffering because of family drama. Primarily, it's the toxic sexism in my culture (Indian)- feels very unfair how my mom and I get treated, especially by the males (and some toxic females) in the family. Any advice on how to navigate the double standards and lack of decency/respect?

I do have a therapist but don't feel as supported with this. Just feeling really depressed, so any constructive thoughts/advice is super helpful.

For those of you that occupy a board seat, could you help me with the following information? I’ve spoken with Boardsi to get started, but am very early on in the process. For your board position…
- How did you get connected with the company?
- How long was the process from start to finish in getting hired?
- How old were you when you got onto the board?
- What positional level were you in your company when you got brought onto the board?
I realize this is not a comprehensive list. Thanks!
