MBB Associate / Consultant from India here. Have an offer for an Analyst role at a large consumer goods company in Amsterdam. Not too crazy about doing an entry level role, or moving countries in a pandemic. It's also a pretty rare opportunity to move to Europe and have an adventure. Not sure if I should take the plunge. Any thoughts?

Hey everyone, sorry about the n00b question, but what do you think are the best materials for GMAT prep? They can get pretty expensive and I just want to make sure I’m investing in the right spots. Also a friend lent me her set of Veritas books, but I’m wondering if that’s enough. 🤷🏻♀️ Thanks!!!

Has anyone purchased the three additional GRE practice testes from ETS and is no longer using them? I'm taking the GRE soon and wanted to see if I could review those three tests for additional practice. I know you can't retake the tests but just looking at the questions will be helpful. Thanks!
Does it matter if I schedule my Sloan interview up until the end in December? Does timing matter?
Hello everyone! Nice to meet you all. I have 6 years of experience across Deloitte & EY and currently studying for the GMAT. Targeting R2 LBS and R1 INSEAD (I’m based in London :) ). I’m currently 30 but very motivated to make a switch to MBB post business school. Should I be worried about my age? Do MBBs prefer younger candidates? More on my experience - working within the Consulting practice at D, doing Tech Transformation work. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all :)
When an application asks for activities and allows you to include hobbies, are true personal hobbies (e.g. reading) okay? Or, is a hobby more like competitive sailing? For the record, I would love it if the school asked about my past reading, I would feel very confident explaining why it is so important to me.
GMAT/GRE waivers - lots of schools not requiring them this year. Are you at advantage or disadvantage by not taking the tests and sending scores as a part of your app? What’s the impact?

TIA - planning for myself and want to see what others are thinking
Serious question - why don’t B schools treat everyone the same? Why is it harder for males? Why is it harder for Asians/Indians?
I think each application should be viewed on its merits and gender and race shouldn’t be a factor at all. Thoughts?
I’m sure this varies but I’d be curious to hear a few takes: how formal of a “recommender packet” are you putting together? I’ve seen examples that are quite comprehensive with letter writing tips, summaries of questions asked by each school, in addition to examples of accomplishments and traits to write to. Both of my recommenders have MBA backgrounds and currently work with me, so I don’t want to make this overkill but want to make sure I give sufficient info as well
