Have you not been following the market? This is an issue on every major city right now, it’s a terrible time to buy

I think the shock is less about craziness of market in general, but more of my lack of awareness of how premium McLean market is. Always knew it’s expensive, but did not expect it to be in same range as likes of Irvine / San Diego / Kirkland / Dublin

That’s a lot cheaper than even OC / Irvine. It’s definitely not only 20-25% less than the livable parts of the Bay Area. A dirt lot is 2M in an average peninsula neighborhood that isn’t an upscale neighborhood.

It’s not a lot cheaper than Irvine.. just did a 5 sec scrolling https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/59-Ray-Irvine-CA-92618/325858575_zpid/?utm_campaign=iosappmessage&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=txtshare 4200 sq ft, built in 2018, 8/10 school. For $/sq ft that’s what you get in McLean area for the newness of home. SJ on the other hand… 😞

Good luck bidding with the price from 3 months ago! Checking out of your post

Women in consulting, what are some of the unique challenges you face in consulting that men might not know or understand?

Someone in HR dropped the ball and didn’t run my background check so they have to push my start date back 5 weeks. What’s a professional way to ask for compensation for this inconvenience?

Got "let go" at a big 4 strategy group during probation. I recognize the errors that I made and I have definitely learned from the experience. However, I think strategy consulting is what I want to do right now and I want to apply at the competition. The market conditions couldn't be better. But my story is not the easiest to tell. I assume recruiters know right away what's going on, even if I come up with compelling arguments. Any best practices / tips you can share?
