How soon to follow up after third-round (final?) interview with CLO of large health system? Its been one week today…
Chances for HBS/GSB? URM, 3.8 engineering from large state school, 720 GMAT, will have 3 YOE in consulting and on track for manager promotion by the time of applying. I’d say ECs are ok, but recommendations are strong. Already took gmat twice and don’t think i can feasible raise my score to match the school averages.
Waiting to hear back after final round interviews this week...not gonna be able to get anything done 😩

I’m hoping to move to a specific city and I’ve been applying to positions for which I’ve been a good fit there, but with little luck. Do you think putting my actual out of state address is hurting me?
I was so good and confident when I was interviewing with consulting firms. Now that I am here for something close to two months, I am really struggling. Struggling to piece together coherent questions and thoughts. Struggling to speak up. Team structure is weird - no one has the bandwidth to address dumb questions, feel like I’m lost without good guidance. Overall this is not good for anyone wanting to be successful in consulting. Any thoughts or advice? Is this the initial phase, gets better?

Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.
Any advice on case interviews? Can honestly say that I suck at interviews in general but that doesn't translate to my performance at work. I get great reviews but when interviews come, I suck

*recent graduate* Whenever I ask an employer why I didn’t get the job or get to the second step in the interview process, they never respond. So, I’m assuming my lack of experience (I never did an internship in school🤦♀️ ) or portfolio is the problem.
What’s the best way to return to law after taking a much needed break from it? I became seriously burnt out and was able to take some time away from working but now it is time for me to renter the workforce. Unsure how to approach this on resume, in cover letters, interviews, etc.

Got a 44 V / 44 Q on a recent GMAT practice exam. I was a finance major at a reputable state school and have mostly A’s (and a few B’s) in my quant heavy courses. If I score similarly on the real exam, is the high V enough to offset the lower Q? Applying to T10. I’m a white female if it matters and am trying do either consulting or tech (i.e. nothing super quant intensive).
Just realized I forgot to put my minor on my resume (Business) and only listed my major, but the minor is on my transcript which is included in all my applications. I’ve interviewed for some spots and waiting to hear back but now I’m scared that this oversight will cost me😭

Question for you sales and saas guys￼. I work for a fast growing startup and we are billing around 200 K a month. I am in charge of the sales team and our CFO mandates that we collect ACH payment information on every agreement. The problem with this is we have to reel in micro deposit amounts from customers and it feels like herding cats.￼ I’ve worked for three great tech companies and I’ve never had ACH nor have I ever paid for services with ACH.￼ Is this a totally dated process?￼
