You’ll have a good chance at HS, but nothing is guaranteed, especially this year. I would wait until next year if I were you, usually MBB people apply so that they begin school at 3 YOE

You should try to have more than 1.5 years of work experience.

Understood, but want to leave room if I want to pursue another more STEM-focused degree later

How frequently should one expect or advocate for a raise at a small firm? I moved to a new firm (about ten lawyers) about two and a half years ago. After my first year I got a 20% raise following a brief and exclusively positive performance review. Its been about 17 months since then and silence. I have the general sense that the firm struggled a little financially during COVID and I don't want to seem ungrateful or greedy, but apparently the firm is doing well enough to hire more associates.
