Thoughts on masters from oxbridge? I'm interested in a PhD after but also want some flexibility to work for a bit after back in consulting. Thinking of either mba+social science focused masters, then target US PhD. I don't currently have research experience.

Can’t comment on that specific program, but what’s your end game for after graduation? If it is ultimately a non-research position such as consulting then masters followed by PhD isn’t necessarily the optimal route. The opportunity cost of being in the PhD program includes lost salary, years of experience, and probably a promotion. Just something to think about.

Cool just offering those two cents. Also with your PhD you can earn a masters along the way. Some business schools will allow you to get an mba along the way but I think at your own expense (Chicago Booth offers this I think).

Change my mind: Blanket student loan forgiveness would be borderline immoral. It’d be a giveaway to the most educated and, generally, most wealthy people in society. Plus unnecessary given that we can give relief to those really struggling by using or expanding existing loan forgiveness and income based repayment programs.
