Curious if there’s any international students/professionals on here who has tried to go the entrepreneurial route? How did you manage immigration issues and investors’ adversity against legal risks? Would appreciate chat in the DM as well if people don’t feel comfortable talking about their legal status here. Thank you for your help!
Hi fellow immigrants. My partner and I are in the process of getting a visa, and we need an agent and as many contacts as possible for intent letters. Anyone that can offer some help? We're experience enough, hot agencies, hot cities, live work, real interest from NY agencies... Is just that we don't know people in the US yet. Any help would be appreciated.
My stem OPT ends 2022 but I will be transitioning to H1b this October. My firm requires I complete the last page of the I-983 form but I am not sure what date range to put since I still have 12 months on the stem opt. Does any one know if I should put the range to end September 31st or next year when the stem opt actually expires?
Is it possible to switch jobs when H1B is in process?. I am in the final stages of interviewing for a FANG role. However, a bit anxious that I might not be able to join very soon. For context, my H1B was picked in the second lottery and was filed on 25th Sept. Are companies known to make adjustments to start dates?
Anyone whose h1b extension was filed recently under PP? Are we seeing RFEs or straight approvals? I am part of the Cyber practice/ lvl M. Extension to be filed soon. Any info is appreciated!

I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card.

Is it worth driving 1hour+ each way for free childcare twice per week? We are having trouble finding a quality nanny for two days (we have a great nanny on other two days). Rather than continuing to pay big $$$ for inconsistent and unreliable care, it thinking of driving to my dads house to let him take the kids while I work from his home office. May be problematic if Both me and my husband are needed in the office. Do you think it’s a good idea? Will save me $260 per day / $520 per week

MBB expert track vs generalist track: how does the compensation differ as you progress through the ranks? Interested mainly in McK, but any experiences would be helpful!
What's the earliest in someone's tenure you've seen them fired from MBB and why? (Looking for validation that the feeling like I'm doing a sub-par job, but trying to be coachable, 7 months into my job doesn't equate to getting fired in the next 5-17 months...)

You guys, what’s a weekly rate? This kinda smells like some bullshit.... isn’t is just a way to make you work weekends for way less money than you’d normally make with a day or hourly rate?
