I wanted to apply for credit cards to get bonus points. My credit scores are 799 with equifax and 798 with TransUnion. Have 4 hard inquiries still on the record. My application for the amazon credit card got declined last March when my score was a bit lower and got ~6 hard inquiries. Personally I think it sucks that we won't find out if the credit card application is accepted or declined until the credit is hard pulled. Is there a more reliable way to be sure of the application being accepted?

Hi ladies. I’m not happy in my current role (bored with the work, feel completely undervalued by management, etc) and want to take advantage of this job market to switch into consulting (preferably MBB). I have zero experience with case interviews, so how long do you recommend studying/prepping prior to applying? Should I apply now and prep while I’m waiting for an interview? Will this be enough time to adequately prep? Appreciate any advice!
Hello friends. I just need some encouragement or support, I think? I feel like I’m in a rut with my career. I feel unhappy for a variety of reasons but primarily gender politics. I want to apply elsewhere but I feel like my confidence has been drained, and I don’t quite feel like I’m good enough to get a job anywhere I’d like to work. I just want to make a difference and learn but it all just feels so hopeless right now 😭
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
