I was accepted to a T10 with 10K merit aid. I spoke to adcom about a M7 offer and a T15 offer with more $ but made the mistake of not letting them know the amount I was looking for. They came back to me and bumped the total amount to 20K. I’m very grateful, but was looking for somewhere in the 35K ballpark. Would I be pushing it if I asked them for more?

I’m turning 32 this year. Dating is abysmal on the apps. There are so many cases of people lying about their age, using outdated pics, or they already have SOs. What activities can I join or where can I go to meet single men in their 30s (who have their life together - ie a career, basic finances in order, not partying all the time, etc). Screenshot is example of the top of guys on the apps — lied about his age to match w younger women. I have no interest in dating men 10+ years older than me.

Been working for some years (under 30) and this is the first project I've had feedback that I seem angry/ have an attitude. I've always prided myself on being professional and polite - that's part of my brand, so having this constantly thrown in my face has been exhausting... anyone else had to deal with this? Tips?

I do sales for a major engineering firm. Focused on new business and exploring new markets. Last year I was in the top 50% for order intake, and first in number of projects won along with number of new customers. I think this is extraordinary given the effort it takes to win new business.

For next year my goal increased by 2.5X, and less of what I bring in counts towards that target. I really enjoy my job but I will essentially be getting a large pay cut. Lost in what to do besides quit??

For those recently laid off, what are you doing for healthcare coverage now? Just got my COBRA offer/extension letter and was floored to see the cost. So far I’ve only looked at covered California at the suggestion of a friend but at a glance the plans don’t seem substantially better - the monthly savings in premium on those plans is essentially offset by the increased deductible. Do I just suck it up and keep what I had through COBRA and pray I get a job soon? Any suggestions on ways to save?
