I don't want to leave without knowing what I'm getting here. But also don't want to ask for something if it's unreasonable

Offers coming out get delayed all the time, so I'd safely expect 2nd week of November for the offer to come out. From there I'd ask the company to give you a couple weeks to think it over. It might be a stretch, but it never hurts to ask.

Your cc already knows. Ask them

The ol have your cake and eat it too

Thanks for the incredible insight D1. Pretty sure after you've worked for a promotion the past two years you'd want to wait the few weeks to hear the news too

Tonight Meghan said that she was concerned that “the first member of color in this family isn’t being titled in the same way as other grandchildren would be”. This was really disingenuous because none of the other great grand kids except William’s (for good reason) have titles either, so why would Archie be given one? This is why I feel like this interview was somewhat staged and that M&H are not exactly the most trustworthy.
