Fwiw I was let go a month ago as well. 2 weeks after being let go, I got 3 rejections in a row and literally THE NEXT DAY I got a job offer. I never believed it when other people had stories like that but rejection is just part of the game and the right thing will come along

It was in Tech. I'm in SF/2 years out of UG. Wasn't actively looking to get staffed since I did want to leave and I think it was the bench time and a below avg. review that lead to it. Gonna be hopeful about this situation though, had earlier seriously contemplated quitting to focus my efforts on finding another opportunity.

So a friend rented an apartment in DC anticipating he would be attending in-person classes at AU. Now AU has cancelled all in-person classes. No claim to break the lease (probably) but thoughts on promissory estoppel vs. AU or anything else?? Thanks
