I took the GMAT the other day for the third time, and my score dropped 60 points and I have no idea what happened. I took it a month ago and had a 710 Q48 V42, and when I took it yesterday I got a Q48 V31. I’m just really confused and upset because verbal dropped 11 points and I don’t understand why. Any advice?

Feel like I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about splitting chores recently / managing house work and I want to make a plug for an app I found recently called Sweepy! You can set up the tasks that you want to do together and complete them as a household - tasks can have different amounts of “effort points” and different recurrences, and household members sign up to do different amounts of work (app will tell you if it’s not enough to complete all the tasks on your list).

1st year associate in public accounting: I know I’m not doing well. I can’t keep up with the work (with review points and extensions). I blow budgets, I even had one Sr manager confront me about not getting to the review points quickly enough and for going way over budget. Another manager had to finish up review points for me (I attempted to get this done but he had another return for me to prepare —that needed to get done ASAP— and then I had a director need me to get extensions out ASAP so I h
Working with a principal who is very rude, condescending and outrightly critical of my work (e.g., has cut me off saying I don’t understand you - Say better and started his own conversation points; whenever analysis does match with his, instead of asking what my train of thought is, he will say things like what you did made no sense; sees one mistake and assumes it’s a trend - when I ask him for other examples he will say - he can’t remember; when I ask him a question, (continued)

Maybe we need to bring this back…”Deloitte's Bullfighter application searches documents for jargon and unnecessarily complex language. Once installed, the Bullfighter toolbar appears in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint documents, and works much like the spell check feature.

How important is having a detailed LinkedIn? I see people with A LOT of content on their profiles about their roles, especially younger people. I only have company and title because my logic is that if I’m applying to a job I’d be sending a CV which includes what is want them to see. I still receive plenty of recruiter mails with this approach but wondering if I’m really missing out on anything?
