All signs of genuine appreciation are to be encouraged. The more authentic the better. You did a good thing, but your phrasing was slightly odd and, face it, who wouldn't take an anonymous shot at an anonymous director when given the chance?

As a fellow Director, I would never view myself as a distraction in that situation, but rather an effective leader and motivator. Perhaps if more of us rolled up our sleeves and pitched in to help, the team wouldn't have to stay until midnight. That's just me though, I work alongside my team and we all (travelers) leave the office by 7:00 PM.

The BEST way to do that is on an anonymous forum.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
