So you want to take the GMAT not because you want to grad school, but just to apply to other firms? Could be much better things to do with that time imo.

KPMG1, I’m taking it in person. My test center confirmed they’re still doing it in person, with masks required. Only the online GMAT has no retakes; regular in-person GMAT has standard retake procedures.

NYC, rising 4th year, V5, M&A. In July, I got the call from the partnership that I should begin to “explore other options.” I always knew when I left, whether on my terms or not, I would exit to finance. It’s been a rough transition. Been pretty discouraged and hit a low point of shame & apathy in August. Just wanted to say that I finally landed my first formal PE and IB interviews this week and am beginning to feel hopeful again! I think it’s all gonna work out.

Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career.

This may sound bizarre but in a pinch. I have been jumping through hoops trying to get imaging for a new lump in my chest.

It’s now been two weeks since I discovered it and am still waiting on schedules to get tests done. My insurance covers ER visits 100%…wondering if I just do it? I have a busy life and really just need answers.
