Wharton. Not close unless you’re a die-hard New Yorker or have close connections to the Columbia community

Not specifically, but they do have an SF campus, and I don’t think Columbia does

Tech doesn’t care about networking as much and it’ll be hard getting an in-semester PM internship. I’d lean towards Wharton for this one

Feel like you like CBS / being in nyc more? I’d imagine Wharton has more people numerically interested in tech PM but I’d imagine many of the same opportunities are available from both so how much more do you like CBS? If it’s super close and you’re pretty location agnostic probs just go to Wharton but if there’s a reason for ny CBS not a bad call

Current Deloitte alum at Wharton. Actually headed to a FAANG firm for the summer (actually a number of us Deloitte folks are). So much of the recruiting process is virtual - I don’t think there’s a geographic edge unless you’re on the West coast imo.

Lots of post about kids so I’ll offer one that’s been on my mind. Why more than one kid? I grew up with a sibling. She is my best best friend but as I’ve gotten older realized we were more of the exception. Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one

This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)
