Sick day, anyone?
My brother is applying to medical school, and apparently being AAPI/Asian/Indian yields one being bucketed into an over represented minority, so would need far more merit than means and medians, due to the high performance of the bucket. I started wondering, throughout my brother and my life, if being Asian had ever had any help- in my childhood, my Asian friends were cut throat with everything- volunteering ops or internship/family help. Brother made a comment that he wished he wasn’t Asian

This may sound bizarre but in a pinch. I have been jumping through hoops trying to get imaging for a new lump in my chest. Everything is so far booked in my area that it’s impossible to get scans same week even if you call first thing Monday AM. It’s now been two weeks since I discovered it and am still waiting on schedules to get tests done. My insurance covers ER visits 100%…wondering if I just do it? I have a busy life and really just need answers.

So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?

Thoughts on cyber exit opportunities from B4 to tech or defense firms with 2 years of software security experience and active sec+? Have heard work life balance and hands on experience are more common in industry
Quick question from a semi new attorney: filed a case against an insurance company and a third party, one of the claims is a federal claim. There’s no complete diversity, so defense counsel moved to remove the case to federal court based on federal question jurisdiction. If the federal issue gets dismissed later on, SMJ is gone and we have to move the case back to state court. Does this sound correct to the rest of you?
What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on? Asking because I've been at a bigger firm that kept everyone on during the last shutdown, but I'm at a much smaller company now that is going to furlough on a project by project basis (if your project is shutdown, you get furloughed). Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?
