It can be if they’re not sure you’ll attend over a different type of master’s program. But if they have that doubt you’re doing something wrong with your application.

I think it also depends on what your career goals are. Some of the recruiting companies ask for GMAT scores so it might be worthwhile to consider that if your career goals align that way

Recently started a new gig (less than three months). Team is great but client is a nightmare, deadlines and workload are insane and unforgiving and the type of work is a dead end road creatively. Another recruiter reached out with a role that is closer to the kind of work I want to be doing - is it awful to jump ship so soon? The agency is great but in remote mode I don’t have any interactions outside my team. Recruiting agency is newer and less established. Advice?

We frequently see my in-laws - have dinner with them weekly and they watch our toddler once or twice a week. At least once a month, I hear my FIL commenting on how my MIL needs to lose weight and she is not trying hard enough. This has always really gotten under my skin but I never say anything because I know she’d hate that conflict. She exercises so much and eats healthy but has also had some pretty complex medical issues that I’m sure make things harder. The real kicker for me is my son idol
