Marriott Card for Hotels if you plan to stay at marriott..

Realized when I typed it.

Do you travel often for work? Which Airline? Do you value lounge access?

I’d get the CSR as not to lock you into one hotel chain

Why CSR over AmEx Platinum? If you are just starting out might be easier to have all points in the same currency.

I'm sad. I just got an email rejection for a clerkship I really wanted. I have been applying for almost 3 months and nothing has panned out.

I dont come from a known law school but I graduated with honors, did moot, worked at a firm, and just finished another clerkship. I can't help but feel discouraged.

Hello! Do you guys have any decent recos for taking a cut from referrals? I’ve operated by the karma system for a decade but now wondering if it makes sense to take a cut if I’m sourcing the talent.
