I just had a quick question, so I took the gre and got a good score (329), and want to apply this fall to go to b-school next year.

I am thinking about quitting my job next month and traveling for a couple months and then would apply for school in the fall. Would that be something that is looked down upon from the admission officers point of view since I would technically be unemployed when I’m applying or is it fine if I talk about traveling and the international experience etc?

I think it’s fine. What was your GRE breakdown? I got a 328 but low Q so considering retake

They decided to move forward with the interview process and then made me an offer for 110k with $9,500 bonus and said will review comp again in October. This is much lower than I expected for the base. Any good negotiators with good tips to use to counter offer? One mistake I made is to let them know that my current job ends Feb 28th. Thank

I was in the final round of interview with Amazon right before the layoff news came out. A week later, I got an “incline” offer for the position that I’m applying to. Can anyone share their experience and tell me what that “incline” means? Retail Operations getting hit. I wonder if this opening will still be available. If so, I got an offer later. Will this be a hire to fire case?

Third-year in BL and just had a second round of interviews for an in-house position. It was surprisingly similar to a law firm callback with no real curveballs.

Frickin, how does that work without you committing malpractice, especially if you’re still a “baby attorney”? By just using lots of qualifiers in your answer? What happens if you get it wrong (hopefully not instant termination)
