I’m so annoyed I didn’t get any stimulus money, despite paying over $80k in taxes alone last year. I’m super liberal, but I totally understand why people become republicans. 🐘

BCG1 - You’re the one who chose to forgo your own work life balance in order to obtain that $220k. Nobody’s forcing you to work so hard or so long... Also, TLDR will only get you so far in life. Good luck with that attitude...

Lol i was about to work for kpmg but then they offered me pretty much nothing so I ended up going with TCS. Where they don’t have the best rep/brand but when you get offered 30k more to work there you find many many reasons to look the other way 😂😂😂

No, more. But, keep in mind: “...single adults who reported $75,000 or less in adjusted gross income on their 2019 or 2020 tax return will receive the full $1,400 payments, as will heads of household who reported $112,500 or less. Couples filing jointly who earned $150,000 or less in adjusted gross income will receive the full $2,800.”

Secured 750 (Q:49, V:42) in GMAT. Targeting to apply for EMBA in 1-2 years. 9 YOE. Current role: Senior Manager. Target universities: M7, INSEAD and LBS. Question is, for GMAT exam I just focused on Q & V part, and skipped IR & AWA part (IR: 1 & AWA: 3). Now does it make sense to reattempt with a focus on other parts and risk 750 scores, or you think it’s not needed, as for EMBA’s GMAT score is not the only deciding factor and 750 score is enough for most universities irrespective of IR & AWA.
