There are a lot of factors that could contribute to this, like general performance on interview day, school fit, or other people applying who performed equally as well but may have had slightly higher stats/better profile. It’s still early in the cycle!

Idk probably sounding nervous, not having direct answers, a clear path, etc.

Generally speaking the odds are 50% accept after receiving and interview. So there are plenty of people who get interviews and don’t get in or are waitlisted. You can be a great fit in an interview and if your stats aren’t there it can happen. Especially if you are in an over represented group that has likable people and they can easily cut people based on gmat and gpa

Happened to me last year sigh :(

Curious for people’s thoughts on where I should be focused:

30yo, all figures combined for 2ppl:

-$35k in 401k savings
-$2.5k in HSA savings
-$1.5k investment account
-$8k cash savings

Didn’t do so strongly in our 20s (worked at nonprofits, spent outside our means), but want to spend our 30s getting financially secure. Where should we start? Pay down debt? Start saving?

Hello! I just graduated with a MS in Product Development (undergrad major was Commercial Entrepreneurship). I also have been running a small business for a few years now. Ive had major trouble finding jobs - applied to over 60 marketing positions on LinkedIn over the past two months and mainly rejected. Ive been looking to switch my searches to potentially marketing analytics or something related… any advice? Feeling really down about having absolutely no luck even with a masters and a business.

I was at a party and talking about different languages. I was saying that there is a vegetable I don't like and that I had to learn how to say it in a couple of languages so that I can know how to tell people not to give it to me.

Well I slipped and said I don't like the speakers of that language instead of the vegetable. Now I fear that I've revealed some subconscious racism and feel bad. What can I do about this, if anything?
