Applying to T15 in R2. Currently have a 700 GMAT (43Q, 41V) after taking once. Even if I raise my quant to 47, which would be impressive for me, I’ll still be at a 700 (possibly 710). 3.6 undergrad GPA. Worth retaking? Or just focus on the rest of my applications?

Any advice on getting my career back on track? I’m about three years into my career.

Feel like I’m caught in a cycle of taking freelance roles just to pay bills and then not having very interesting work to show for it.

When you get a rental car, what do you do to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of for some bogus issue/scratch that’s already on the car? Take pic/video before, tell the checkout person of any issues (although this can be hard especially if at a smaller airport & you get the keys in the airport and there’s no gate when you leave), buy the rental insurance? If you have a card that covers rental cars (CSR, Amex Hilton) do you decline rental insurance and use the card benefits?

Exited to industry in May and already looking to leave. However the other person I'm working with is going for maternity leave soon. We are working together as PMO for a huge transformation project and I technically can't leave until she is back because there is no one else to step in.... I feel like it's not ethical to leave them now but i can't take it anymore. They rushed me to join them and I didn't know that was because she was leaving soon.. :( What are your thoughts ?
