Should an Asian Male with a 3.0 from state school and 720 GMAT from PWC target T15 or T25?

T15 wouldn’t be out of question if you have a good WE, good ECs and strong recs. If you can explain the 3.0 in the optional essay, then I wouldn’t rule out T15.




Get more than the avg years of experience and you can try to do T15.



T25 - you’ll find plenty of people with the same stats at programs in the T20 - T30 range

It depends. This is very vague with no other information on your profile. No EC and 2 years of WE? T25. Good ECs and solid WE and essays? T15

I joined D's Workday practice as a C and been here ~8 months. I'm getting an offer from a lesser known practice with a 66% increase and a promo to SC. I currently love my job and team. The only motivation to jump is the money. If i stayed at D i'd prob get promoted next year and yet it wont match the salary i'm getting offered today. The money would allow me to reach my goals a lot faster, but is right to move just for the money? I know the work at the other firm will be less interesting.

Offers from two B4 firms in MCOL city. Based on information below, which offer seems better? Significant pay bump due to the change in locations from HCOL to MCOL with no state income tax (planned prior to offers being received): EY Tech Consulting - M1 175k base, 7.5k signing bonus Deloitte Ops Transformation - M1 175k base, no signing bonus (yet) Currently make 160k base as M1 but in Tier 1 city. Also planning to have a kid in the next year if that makes any difference.

I’m relatively new to freelancing, but was lucky enough to sell in a video shoot and travel to be there on set. How do you handle billing hours and expenses in this scenario as a freelancer? Obviously I’ll bill any hours working on the project, time on set and expense my travel. Do you bill extra for the billable hours you lost during travel?
