Asians in Consulting

🙄🙄 I like how even my 14 yo niece knows it’ll be hard for her to get into good schools bc she’s Asian - but these courts say there’s nothing wrong...

I once applied for a software engineering position in one of the most reputable national bank. Went through all the interviews and aced the technical assessments but still got ghosted at the end. Later that year, I found out through some connection that the lead HR said the company is looking for “more diverse” candidates...

Like others have stated in another thread, just claim Pacific Islander from now on. The entire continent of Asia in a way is technically an island in the pacific.

South Korea is detached from the rest of Asia by land because of North Korea, so I'm claiming Pacific Islander 😤

It’s racist. But apparently our minority doesn’t matter to anyone else.

According to perfection we’re not a minority. Never see MSM mention Asians when talking about minorities.

The MBA applicants bowl is fuuuuuuuull of examples, like if you’re an Asian male, don’t even think about applying with anything below a 770 GMAT. Like why? Do Asians somehow have more than 24 hours in a day to spend on studying??

I think hard work should be enough to get ahead in America... Asians should not have to work extra hard...

It’s our predecessors’s faults ... for working hard and trying to succeed 🤦🏻‍♂️ I think we can only keep trying while finding ways to raise our concerns. However, we’re not vocal enough nor have enough volume to push for equality. I guess we’re also not destructive enough as well

You do realize this court case is a ploy led a lawyer who’s main goal is to overturn affirmative action for blacks/Hispanics right... Asians are just being used as a tool here to overthrow the overarching systems that support giving opportunities to folks with more disadvantaged backgrounds So as an Asian, I agree this case should’ve been overturned

Makes sense that those who did go to Harvard wouldn’t support fairer treatment if Asians - after all, it elevates how special they are. I feel like it’s in line with who a lot more minorities and immigrants supported Trump than expected.

I am not an American born Asian and haven’t gone to school here so missing the context. Can you share some details on the issue and the arguments?

Basically all else hold constant, Asians have a significantly harder time getting into good schools compared to their peers. They have to score 100-200 points higher on average to get into the same school as their non-Asian peers. Asian applicants have been steadily increasing over the years yet overall asian populations in incoming class are held constant at ~20% for the ivy leagues. It has been documented that Harvard uses “personality” to discriminate against Asians as Asians tend to score lower on that scale (really? All Asians tend to have bad personality?) It is really just for them to have a way to penalize Asian applicants without specifying race so they can get away with lawsuits like this.

How do colleges/companies even fact check race on applications? Couldn’t you be 1/128th of something or another? Why not always check something favorable?

Anyone here have ADHD? I'm interested to hear your experiences of how that interacts with a high-pressure, working all hours kinda job. Happy to hear from partners/spouses of ADHD folks too. My partner was diagnosed a few years ago and we are making slow but steady progress in terms of him articulating how that makes certain things really hard for him. He's a tax lawyer so occasionally pulling crazy hours, more so lately. We are both still WFH, which doesn't help.

Has anyone ever been bullied by their co workers and paras ? I work with a very cliquey staff. I picked the wrong battle and they have been paying me back with all year. I’m actually sick to my stomach when I think about going back next year and it’s not just about Covid. I have apologized for not staying in my own lane and gone above and beyond to help this teacher with her IEP paperwork. I’m at a loss.

What are the top mistakes you find yourself making at work- typos? Not understanding assignments? Issues with managers? Delegation and blowing deadlines? how do you keep yourself accountable? Thinking about pitting together a list for minor gnits to try and catch em or hunt for them before reviewing drafta (what I'm guilty of - making sure united isn't spelled untied, caption errors, diff fonts for page numbers)!

Does it make sense for me to file for AOS right now? I have a Canadian passport and I am on H1b but want to quit Deloitte next year and go back to India for a couple of years due to family reasons. Will filing for AOS now mean I will be abandoning my green card petition when I leave. Also AOS will prevent me from getting a TN visa to return.
