It’ll all work out, there are good things in store for you, even if it isn’t MBb

Oof, Bain is quaking in its boots after that MBb shot

I felt this way too! It's still possible to get an offer, don't give up hope yet

When I walked out of the room, I knew at least 3 things I messed up. There's still hope for you!
