Thoughts of applying late R3 vs R1 next year given the covid-19 outbreak issue, extensions of R3, and general admissions chances with all the uncertainty in the world?

You might as well feed your application to your dog for R3 unless you’re ridiculously overqualified for a school. Do R1 next year.

R3 is a ridiculously tough round because most schools have filled 95% of their slots. Granted this year might be a little easier than your typical R3 due to coronavirus, but your odds at R1 will always be a lot better than R3.

Need advice: was seeing a girl for a few months, things ended early Dec. Both agreed it’s better off to be friends. I got Covid and then she did so she was in quarantine the last few weeks.

She typically responds within 24 hours so getting worried. The message I sent yesterday was neutral - said will give you space but just worried about you.

You guys have seen me on here before, I have the toxic boss who accused me of having an interview on a day I took for my mental health anyways.
In June we had a meeting, it was big. I told said boss I don’t like how they talk to me xyz. In the meantime between then and things have improved (I also found out I was undermedicating myself for 4 months on anxiety meds)
I get called into the partners office today to discuss my attitude and to write me up for

MBB data science expert role (i.e., mostly identical progression as generalists but less up or out pressure) or third (?) tier tech companies (DataRobot, C3, etc.)?

Assume starting TC is same at both or 10% more at the tech companies. That's the figure they're roughly giving me during interviews. Also coming from Deloitte.

Idk how, but I got the offer. Still wondering if it’s real (it’s been 30mins since the phone call) because I thought I performed so poorly. I wouldn’t have passed myself. I hope the interviewers didn’t make a mistake (accidentally mixed up evals for another candidate, or the call was meant for another candidate w/ the same name). I do want to thank the Fishbowl community though. So many of you took the time to share your experiences and encourage me. I couldn’t have done this without you.
