Depends on your busy season and YE, but 96% since 8/1. Probably have a week to a week and a half of non-chargeable time for firm training, community events, etc included in that call. No days off. Also not my busy season. Gotta love public... 🙄

GT2 96% with no days off? Like you are pulling full weekends? Math doesn’t add up if that’s the case.
