I just had a colleague ask me my opinion on a few cars since she’s buying her daughter’s first car. Went through a few brands trying to get a sense of where her mind was, and as soon as I mentioned VW she said “oh, they’re owned by Mercedes and we had bad experiences with Mercedes years ago.”

What comically incorrect car things have your coworkers said to you about cars?

Oh man a bunch

1) Camaro > Mustang
2) Miatas are plenty fast
3) Civic SIs are cool

But all true at the same time. Ford> Chevy

Female 🐠 here. I always get a kick out of self-proclaimed car guys liking my S2000. They always think it’s cool I opted for the manual transmission. It’s apparently cool because they don’t know how to drive a manual and would opt for the automatic version.

It happens🤷🏻‍♀️. Not always a bad thing. I generally like car people. We all have our things.

What are good extracurriculars to involve yourself in pre-mba beyond community service. I already do pro-Bono consulting through my undergrads alumni society’s pro-Bono group. I have heard that start up board involvement is good but don’t know how people outside of MBB get their foot in the door. What other potential ECs should I be considering?

Hello All,
Excel help please. I’m trying to combine 3 tabs into 1. So on tabs a,b,c I have wire instructions that go to different places, but they all have the same field names/format. However the number of rows for each tab will vary from day to day. I need to make a fourth tab that shows all the rows from a,b,c consecutively. Because the number of rows change, I can’t find the best way to collate all the rows into one table. I can use a macro or lookups or a source formula. Please advise!
