Deciding between Insead and oxford mba . Constantly hearing that INSEAD is a tier 1 school where Oxford is second tier . After speaking with alumni , seems like Insead alum are the most passionate too . Living in Singapore and France is a huge plus . Oxford has prestige and is more than just a business school. Their social / ethical take on mba seems to resonate with me a lot more . The alumni seem to choose career paths similar to fields of what I want to do .
Noob question - I’m in the process of switching jobs, and by the looks of it, will have a week of a gap between them. Will I be out if insurance for that one week? Thanks!
Any recs on finding a good tutor for GMAT? Should I look a different place for quant vs. verbal tutors, or are there tutors that can help with both? Also, is it realistic to think I can get someone for $150 an hour, or is that too low? Lastly, how many tutoring sessions do you think are necessary to reap the benefits? (Lots of Qs, sorry!) For context, am considering using a tutor specifically to help tighten up weak points between my 1st and 2nd sitting

Building off a thread from a few days ago on how long you waited to consultant an RE. If I am under 35 and have not been trying for 12 months, do I need to spin it to my doctor like I have? It seems bad to not give my doc the real info but I also don’t want to be turned away and I think I’ve heard you have to tell them it’s been 12 mo to get insurance to cover it. Any insight?

Thoughts on Grey NY health teams (I know everyone has mixed feelings on pharma in general) specifically the account departments?
Since partners no longer get subsidized health care coverage from their firms, do any partners purchase health care through the aca marketplace exchange? Even without a premium tax credit from the exchange, it would have to be cheaper than paying full price via the firm’s plan unsubsidized. I heard that some get coverage thru a spouse’s plan, but what if the spouse’s family plan from their employer is really bad? Curious to hear about options out there.

In this new year, I would like to get better at investing. I am embarrassed to say that all I have done is max out my 401K every year. And while I do have savings, its sitting in a bank account unused and just making the bank money. A big part is the lack of knowledge I have on the subject. I just don't know where to start, any suggestions on good how to books for beginners? What daily news sections should I be reading?
Wow! What a day! Alright Michael Beaton, I made the biggest trade of my life. I moved my entire 401k to a money market fund. Please tell me this market will drop in the near term!

What is the best way to select a developer or agency? Submitted a project on upwork and got tons of proposals. Would love some advice on the recommended way to qualify them. Everyone seems to have very similar estimation, experience and a great deal of projects done in portfolio.
German court ruled that a Muslim man who refused to shake the hand of a woman should not receive German citizenship. He did not do so for religious regions. I am pro-immigration and also think people need to have freedom of religion, but at the same time it can be seen as discriminatory for women so got me wondering what’s acceptable and what’s not. Thoughts?

To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?
