Plan to go to B-school in 3 years (1 year out of UG now). Long term goal is entrepreneurship. Have offers at a MBB firm for a generalist consultant role and at FAANG for a strategy role.

Opinions Wanted My Dad passed away recently and my Mom finally heard back on the value of his Deloitte pension. Around 350k. Combined with life insurance and retirement this puts my Mom in a much more comfortable position than she was expecting and mentioned she wants to use some of the money to pay down my siblings and my remaining student loan debt as she holds a lot of guilt that we had to take loans at all. Between 25-50k for each of us. Would you take the money?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

4th year going into my 5th year and am leading discovery and case management on a case with a $5 million budget (yeah!) with a rocket docket. Starting to understand why partners have no time to do substantive work: it’s all answering client questions and managing staff, associates, and reviewing partners. Any tips for the transition?
