Is two years work experience in consulting too little for getting into a top MBA (M7) program? All at the same firm, joined after undergrad and am now in an Experienced Associate position.

No it’s not, but you should have a compelling reason for why you want to get your MBA. Keep in mind you might not get as much out of it with just 2 years experience

Depends on your profile but generally, yes it is. And recruiting is going to be harder coming out with only 2 years. 3 is basically minimum nowadays

Was let go from a position this week and have been gearing up the search. I was there for just under 90 days. Plan is to discuss that there was very little (read: absolutely zero) training, a bad culture fit (toxic culture), and hidden managerial issues (micromanager). Aside from such a short tenure just smelling funny, any red flags I might be missing? I can elaborate a bit more, but I feel a bit relieved to be moving on - DMs and recruiters welcome lol.

I bought a house a few months ago and the seller had cats. I've successfully gotten rid of the smell in every part of the house (refinished the floors and washed the walls) except the kitchen where I still smell faint cat urine over the threshold from the kitchen to the dining area. Has anyone else dealt with removing random cat urine odor? Is it possible it went through the peel and stick tiles into the subfloor or something? I'm planning to reno the kitchen later this year.


Grass isn’t always greener on the other side…deeply regret leaving ACN for industry :/ 5 months into my new industry job and I’m stuck on a team with toxic teammates and can’t get out.
