The FIAR manual is a page-turner. My personal favorite is the DoD 5000...couldn't put it down!

The chance that the DoD will ever receive a clean audit opinion is about the same as the US ever leaving Afghanistan because peace broke out

Congressional requirement for a DoD clean opinion is the biggest piece of pork belly legislation in the history of the United States and nobody realizes it. The Army AUDIT, not even FIAR, is a $40 million per year contract!

It’s the most fulfilling work I’ve ever done. You won’t regret it. I think I read the entire FIAR guidance in one night. Such a gripping read. What was I talking about again?

UVA Darden or Georgetown McDonough part-time for a B4 consultant targeting FAANG, but still wanting MBB as a potential option?

UVA Pros: Higher ranking, great professors, and a tight knit community

Georgetown Pros: More established part-time program, campus for out of class collab, focus on collab not competition, feels like a good fit especially with its diversity, opportunity to have classes with full time students, lecture+case+experiential learning, and more electives to choose from

Don't want to:

- Do a lot of biz dev (don't mind white papers or presenting)
- Get higher than secret clearance
- Do cyber or software engineering (don't mind managing tech talent)

Do want to:
- Have sole ownership of a single project (complex, operational work with 50+/- direct reports is fine)
- Work internationally and/or across multiple countries
- Control the project/info flow to client
