Gold is definitely worth it. It’s better than the Plat because I’m not traveling much anymore. Unsure if you can go get the Plat soon after getting the Gold.

MBB role i got a verbal offer without a comp figure yet but my understanding is it’s around there, maybe 10-20% higher (or maybe much higher depending on bonus).

Didn’t fully expect to get the MBB offer honestly, but both beat my 180/198 b4 comp. Now i’m torn.

Just hit 125k net worth at age of 25. May not seem like a lot compared to my FAANG, MBB or IB friends, but definitely proud of myself. For all of you who are big savers but also investors - I have a decent bonus coming up and am trying to figure out how to invest it. Should be around 10-15k, I’ve already maxed my 401k and Roth at 19,500. 3k in HSA from last three years. Big believer in stocks and compound growth. Crypto scares me a bit even though I’m willing to take risks.
