Not to judge OP, but it’s a little concerning you didn’t know this answer before you decided to get the MBA.

Disagree. Once you get there you’ll see there are lots of people who are figuring it out.

I graduated a few years ago from my MBA program so this may be outdated but here is what paid pretty well: - Strategy consulting even tier 2 firms - Banking (lower base than consulting when I was there but better bonuses) - Big tech product manager roles From what I remember, the lower paying roles (and by lower paying it was like $100-120K base or so and please note this might have changed) were the F500 leadership rotational programs, marketing brand manager roles, and some corporate strategy roles (dependent on the industry though).

Looking for advice/validation. Currently have about 10 credit cards (yes really!) About half are airline cards that I signed up for for the miles, quicker boarding, and free bags- but they carry a $100 annual fee. Other half are random no-fee cards (BoA, Amazon chase, capital one venture, west elm). My thought is to cancel the ones w an annual fee (just bought a house so no immediate need for higher credit limit). Does this make sense?
