Incoming MBA, I have my tuition paid for and rent covered (I will be an RA). So the only thing I need to pay for is food and entertainment. Do you think 20k is enough to last me through the 2 years? I will make a little money interning in the summer, so that would be a safety valve if I blow through the 20k.

Happy Sunday everyone! I would like some insight into working for Morgan & Morgan. I have a second interview this week. Particularly in Tallahassee, FL. Thank you!
Second-year associate here. I feel like I’m constantly slow/light on work. When I ask I receive positive feedback. The only other person in my year is very good at chatting people up and is very bro-like with other members of my predominantly male group so he gets most of the work. Is there a future for me here? Do I have patience or lateral the hell out of here?
Positive sign if you negotiate/know your offer before you head to hiring committee? Or does it not really matter?

How do you feel about Gifted and Talents programs? We've had it in my district since about 2006 for elementary and middle school students.

If anyone has some good readings on either side I'd love to read too!

Hey guys ,
I was a fresher when i joined wipro
My manager has given me rating 1 in confirmatory appraisal on may 18 may which happened after completion of 1 year at wipro.
I raised the issue of rating with my manager immediately , he convinced me not to worry , ratings are already submitted , I asked him to resubmit cause i don't deserve rating 1
So he said he will look if that is possible but didn't changed .Now after 3 months they are pressurizing me to put a resignation,what should i do?
Ladies in leadership - This is a critical reminder: When a male colleague asks you for “help” with an administrative task, refer him to his executive assistant. Resist resist resist the urge and the social conditioning to be “helpful” to male colleagues in this way. If you need to ask me why, please do. But I’m hoping that the reasons may be occurring to you as you’re reading this. You’re welcome!
I struck out at OCI my 1L year and feel I've done nothing but play catch-up since. I have more real work experience than most of my big law friends but just don't seem to be impressing most employers. What should be my next step.

I am currently working on my MBA in a professional evening and weekend program at a highly accredited university.
