Not very. If you’re in, you’re in. Your acceptance and admission will not be rescinded because you participated in 2 instead of 3/4 networking sessions.

As important as you want them to be. Virtual networking sucks but it’s all we have for now. I’d rather know even 1 additional person from the sessions when starting school, but some people probably don’t care.

Hey all, looking for some advice. I tried for MBB during MBA and I wasn’t able to progress beyond the first round. I ended up at Deloitte and currently have 1 yr of work experience. My performance feedback was very good for this year. Do you think I can try again for MBB now as an experienced hire with 1yr of work experience or is it too soon? I’m interested in east coast North American offices. Any help/feedback would be super appreciated!

Currently working in the government services practice of a regional accounting firm (focused in disaster recovery/CDBG) and am interested in moving into advisory at a Big 4 firm. I am seeing lots of positions looking for salesforce admin certification. Is it worth it to get the certification before applying? Or would I be okay to apply now and learn later on? I work within salesforce every day in a non-development capacity for context.

Incoming MBA, I have my tuition paid for and rent covered (I will be an RA). So the only thing I need to pay for is food and entertainment. Do you think 20k is enough to last me through the 2 years? I will make a little money interning in the summer, so that would be a safety valve if I blow through the 20k.

Or… should I take a small loan?

I’m currently interviewing for a hybrid Jr UX Designer role for a fragrance company. The compensation is between 70-80k. I searched the market rate in NYC and the salaries are between 103-120k. I assume this is based on the company, industry, and experience. I have a graphic design background with 10 years experience and have a springboard certification for UX. I don’t want to get low balled as I have been in the past. Is it unreasonable to ask for what’s market value when it’s a team of 5?
