I plan to apply for an MBA next year, for the 2023 intake. I am currently working at a healthcare consulting firm (ZS, Clearview etc) and was thinking of switching to a non profit firm (Again in the healthcare domain but very impactful work). However the designation at this non profit is at an entry level. How will this switch be perceived by the adcoms ? Background - Indian, Solid GMAT, Decent extra curriculars

Should we assume that ANYone at the top of their sport/industry has mental health issues? We celebrate the Biles’s, Jordan’s, Belicchick’s and Brady’s. We celebrate the Musks and Jobs of the business world. But what drives that fire and ambition? The degree of relentlessness required to get to that level seems to require so trauma or imbalance to fuel, right? Even partners in our firms (not EXACTLY equating them with Michael Jordan) - is the drive to the top fueled by mental health issues?

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
