Actually PwC has realized they got the chance to (re)establish an industry leader write behind MBB. They started to invest more in the brand and differentiate us further. The failure of Monitor should be a warning to any company. Deloitte S&O is declining in attractiveness.

A) get an MBA or B) take a 3 month software engineering course. School cost is irrelevant as I will be using the GI Bill. Career goals are to stay in tech but don’t care to continue with consulting.

Not accounting related but feel like I lost my chance - was interested in someone that just started and there was some back and forth flirting. Just found out he started dating someone. Ugh
