Depends what their goals are. Most that I see love the job and really enjoy sticking around solving the fantastic problems they deal with

Most of the big 4 have mandatory retirement ages at 60 and minimum retirement around 56-57. Earlier than that and you give up a ton in pension so I think an “earlier” retirement probably has more to it (health reasons, independently wealthy, or a joint decision to exit the firm).

I plan on retiring before 50. Only a few years to go

No. Money is too good. Multi-generational wealth.

Need some input - does this approach make sense to achieve FIRE? Thinking rentals are the best way to rise with inflation + tax deduction.

- Age 30, married, 200K HHI , no kids
- Need 70k/year for our basic expenses
- saving 40% of our income (savings, retirement, HSA, investment, etc.)
- Plan is to buy 3-4 rental properties in the next 10-12 years
- Use cash flow/sales of one property to pay other loans down and retire once rental income = 70k/year

I’m contributing post-tax 401k offered by my employer to take advantage of the mega backdoor Roth. How often do people roll it over to their Roth IRA account? Like every month? I understand that any gains rolled over would be subject to tax but don’t expect it much given the market is down currently.

Trying to compare Freddie Mac vs. Fannie Mae benefits. I heard FNMA got rid of the 2% once a year additional 401k add-on (which Freddie still has) but may have recently brought it back? Also heard FNMA lets staff out early every Friday and provides Fridays off if Monday is a holiday (Freddie does not offer this although in the summer we were allowed to leave 2hrs early on Fri.) Any color on these types of non-standard benefits would be great - thanks!

Thoughts on using 401k to pay for down payment / closing costs on a house? I know it’s normally a huge no-no, but it’d take me 2 years to save enough cash in my market, and I plan to house hack so I’d be able to pay myself back in 1/4 the time it’d take without using it and allow me to start my FI journey way quicker (but terrifying to think of actually doing it). I do have a cash emergency fund. Pros and cons, and anyone who has done this. Thanks!!

~2/3 of the CBS August Entry class gets filled in the ED round. There are currently ~400 admitted students in the slack channel. Let's say another 50 left to join the slack from the ED round from the recent admits. So that's 450, and say only 10% of those end up defecting. That's ~400 joining for a class of ~630 for August Entry.

Bottom line: CBS gets really competitive after the ED round as there are only 1/3 seats left. So apply for ED if you want to get in.
