I want a baby but I want to go to law school next year but I also want to move to the islands next year (and I also don’t have a man but that’s besides the point). Decisions decisions.
Benchtime thoughts- As a kid, I used to be excited for chocolates and cookies bought from the US by my relatives. And now when I'm working here in the US, I go to the Indian store to buy Parle G 🙃
How many of you have taken cases to your state court of last resort? My firm is taking a child welfare case to our state supreme court (not NY— so the actual last court.) Just curious about others’ experience(s). Very clear from the intermediate court that the panel didn’t bother to read the record on appeal. Very frustrating that my client’s last shot is discretionary when the trial court ignored my client and the one guaranteed appeal had a panel that couldn’t bother
I repotted my baby fiddle leaf fig and this is happening to some of the leaves :( what should I do?
Any other kid-free folks have trouble answering the often-asked question: do you have a family? In 2020, the euphemism of “family” as meaning kids seems outdated. (FYI: I have family but no kids.)
Anyone have a child with delayed speech that eventually caught up to milestones? Tell me your story. Need some hope.
Just had our third baby. #blessed #timetoquit #cantmissthirdchildhood #whataremyoptions if #iloveconsulting #suckerforpain
Fellow bowl members, this maybe a silly question. For those of you who are single, how do you find other singles who also like to be child free?
I have been running into this challenge for almost 2 years now that I am unable to get far anywhere with my date when I present my dealbreaker i.e. not wanting kids.
I usually bring it up before even if I meet a potential date. I like to know that we have alignment on core values. It's a waste of time, otherwise.
If you make a lump sum after tax HSA contribution, can you still deduct that from your taxes? Assuming it’s all under the applicable limits. Haven’t really contributed much to date, but wife is pregnant and has lots of bills due before year end and would like to use HSA if possible. Thanks!
How much do you target in your kid’s 529? Given tuition inflation, and the vast cost difference across public and private schools, how do you think about a target number? I currently have ~$60k saved for my 8 year old and I’m wondering if I’m on track.

QUESTION of the day: will more people who say they are "never flying United again" actually do so or will more people who said they would move to another country if Trump won actually leave?
What are the film investing funds out there? Know there’s shamrock capital, Netflix’s CS&A. Any others?
Golden Gate (SF) or Charlesbank (NYC)?
Is there a big difference in culture, hours, comp, or exit opps?
Should I get a TUMI bag? The one I like a lot is on sale. But I’m a staff and even the PPEDs on my project use cheap company bags.
What are the pros & cons of booking trips Thursday to Monday rather than Monday to Thursday? Is there any difference at all?

I had my interview yesterday with Accenture. Right after attending the interview I got an email saying that I have cleared the interview and then HR called me to upload the documents. Right now, the status is as below! What does that mean ? Can I expect a call from HR for further discussion?
Helzberg (store) or Blue Nile for a diamond ring? Similar diamond seems to be $1,500 more in Helzberg, which is Berkshire Hathaway company. Other suggestions welcome :)
Hello everyone! Nice to meet you all. I have 6 years of experience across Deloitte & EY and currently studying for the GMAT. Targeting R2 LBS and R1 INSEAD (I’m based in London :) ). I’m currently 30 but very motivated to make a switch to MBB post business school. Should I be worried about my age? Do MBBs prefer younger candidates? More on my experience - working within the Consulting practice at D, doing Tech Transformation work. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all :)
Just started a discussion with a McKinsey recruiter for their Direct Elect Partner entry. What does the process look like after this first “informal” discussion?
