Articulate your “why PE” and “why this fund” well. Articulate your deal/case experience. pray, you don’t run into any tough technicals. Go into it with a Yolo mindset since honestly, you’re pretty screwed if you truly aren’t prepped and have 1 day (if it’s a reputable fund with a decently challenging process)

I have decided to take a leave of absence for mental health reasons. My team is toxic which is a contributing factor and I need to get out. I’m going through a lot and it is scary. It’s also difficult because my parents do not understand my mental health issues and they get upset/agitated when I try to talk about it. Anyway you’re not alone if you feel the same. Don’t wait till your breaking point to take care of yourself.

Waiting for official offer document is stressful. Interviews done. Negotiation done. Verbal offer received. Just filled out app/reference/background documents. Official offer letter is going through legal review. Working honestly on my current project, while trying to time exit is not fun. I'm trying to not sign up for more work because it will feel like a broken promise to my teammates whom I like. Plus, I wonder a little if the official offer letter will have anything outrageous in it.

Currently I make around 85k. I contribute to my Roth 401k and I live in NYC. I will 100% be retiring or even moving back to Florida in the future. Given there is no state income tax (and let’s just assume that remains) would it be better for me to contribute pre tax to my 401k while in NYC if I plan on withdrawing this money in Florida in the future?
