Speedy Tuesday adjacent 😊
Can anyone help reduce my stress lol. I’ve been studying for the GRE since June(3-5 hours a day) and using multiple study aids(ETS/third party/tutoring) and i’ve taken 3 practice tests in the 320-330 range. I’m worried since i’ve been hearing quant has gotten harder lately on the official exam. Any advice? My exam is in two weeks. Aiming for Rice/UT Austin/Vanderbilt MBA. ORM as well.
Soon to be graduating from an MBA, and won't be able to attend a graduation ceremony or grad party - is it something life changing that I'll be missing out on?
Why are the equivalent GRE scores for M7 schools so much lower than their equivalent GMAT? I am seeing scores in the mid 320s that only convert to 710-720 gmat equivalents.
To everyone, how was the hike and bonus in general for this year 2021-2022? I hope hike was given last month- April. Please respond, i just joined during March and wanted to know. Société Générale
No poach agreements (i.e., we agree not to solicit each other’s employees) in customer contracts are a no-no for antitrust reasons, right? A customer is pretty adamant that they want it in but I feel like this is black and white. Would love to know if any of you are seeing them in your customer contracts and whether you’re including “unless prohibited by law” type of language to CYA.

Des Moines is not but Dos Moines is double the cost of living…… 😂
Was it ever a question? It’s Iowa, you tell me if it’s HCOL 🤷🏼♂️
That’s more than 1bd apartments in nice neighborhoods of DC.
Not sure but I’m between moving to Zurich and Jackson Mississippi— what has a higher COL?
I’m halfway between Minneapolis and Des Moines. When putting together my offer, they mapped me to Minneapolis so my salary could be higher. Both cities are considered LCOL.
It is HCOL within Iowa
it should be, I thought rent would be lower when I moved here 😭
I just fundamentally believe rent should be less than $1000 lmao I could get a nicely sized house for that if I had the cash…but I don’t. I also don’t know anyone here to be able to have a roommate, so I’m just forkin it out on my own 🙃
COL=Cost of Labor
Des Moines is LCOL
KPMG1 - I don’t disagree, I’m just saying COL typically stands for cost of living, not cost of labor.
