Vacation and down payment

Definitely not law school. Besides that would only get you like 1.2 semesters. Lol

Down payment. I’d debate mba if I could get into top 15 and it put me in the pipeline for a career I would enjoy

Don’t take on more debt. Do the down payment or invest it

Having had a nice car before I can confidently say that was the worst thing I’ve ever bought. Go for the down payment unless you plan on moving in the next few years - or buy a flip house and reno to live in for a little while

The fact a lot of big 4 people leave to get a MBA to go to big 3 crazy hours and work life unbalance

It’s a taste change though. Money being a constant variable, I would rather work long hours hours doing something I love (or at least like) over something that I’m doing for via a nice, reliable paycheck. I see more work life “unbalance” in public accounting than I hear about anywhere else

Does the person already have a decent job? If so, don’t go to law school.

Figure out what you want to do first... if you don’t know if you want to be an mba, lawyer or stay in one place and do what you’re currently doing (the house)- you may as well spend the money on the car or travel for a year.

Down payment

3. By far. Setting up for your future

Really appreciate it for the law school experience

I'm 23 years old/1 year in consulting. Came from low-income household so wasn't really well educated in managing money. I have about 40k (spread throughout cash, stocks/etfs, and 401k) saved up from one year of working but I'm not sure what to do with the money. It's not a lot but I want to build a foundation where I can grow my money efficiently in my 20s. I heard about HYSAs and CDs but not sure what direction I should go to grow wealth.

Hey guys, I’m kinda having an existential crisis and I would appreciate some advice. I’m going to work for B4 audit in a big city but I’m having doubts.1) being because I’ve been told first hand that the job of auditing sucks and the pay sucks, and 2) exit ops aren’t as good as consultants or finance people. I’m thinking of sticking it out in audit until sr, and maybe going to valuations after? Or should I try to consulting in a year? Is there anyone who’s been where I am? I hate acct tbh. Thx!
