I feel burnt out for doing case studies. How to fix this?

Case studies I feel should be targeted for growth. If you’re getting burnt out, you might just be hitting a number and not necessarily the strides you need. When I did it in my undergrad I just tarried to hit the magic 20 number everyone talks about and failed all my cases. Second time around I was much more targeted and got offers at multiple places. Don’t feel the need to do cases for the sake of cases!

I agree with L1 and will add -

1. You should enjoy the problem solving aspect of cases, if you don’t, I’d worry you won’t like the job either because it is a lot of ambiguous problem solving
2. Sometimes part of the reason for burnout is because you feel like you are just going through the motions without actually learning anything, so you should change up who you case with, get some different discussions maybe that’ll spark your interest

Thoughts on the London (zones 1 & 2) property market (flats or houses) in the next few years? I’m considering buying this year bc I’ve got £ for a down payment & could get a mortgage with a monthly payment same as my current rent, but I would maybe sell in a few years to co-buy a family home with my partner. I’m a bit concerned the market’s at peak now, plus stamp duty sucks. On the other hand, I read that property values are meant to go up 25% in 3 years, so maybe I should get on ladder now??
