Compared to NYC, Austin is a breath of fresh air.

Charlotte, NC! Trust me on this one. It's slowly growing into a metropolitan area due to all the banks in the downtown area but still has still retained that inimitable southern charm. I miss it so much!

Philly is small enough to be easy to get around by foot but big enough that there is always something to do, plus you are 15 minutes from a major international airport and a 90 minute or less train to NYC or DC

@acn4, @D3 @OP Minnesota party!!!! Minnesota has more shore line then the east and west cost combined due to our lakes and rivers, is the second most bike friendly city behind Amsterdam. Has more theater seats per capita then NYC. Minneapolis is constantly rated one of the healthiest city's in the country. We have explosive restaurant and brewery scene. However it's cold for a few months a year, our citizens are terrible drivers and have too much construction. Come have a pint and hang out, you won't want to leave.

Charlotte is has a ways to go in amenities. Food isn't great. Metro area has a much more suburban feel than most cities, although that might be what you were getting at.

Yup DC is pretty spread out. I second Baltimore & also suggest Philly!

Anyone move from accounting advisory to more of a financial analyst role? I’m a senior in FAAS right now and just not liking it at all.. partially cause I’m on multiple part time projects which sucks, but just don’t see myself here long term. I think a shift to more of an internal finance role could be good for me

Anybody have side hustles that are completely different from what they do on their job? I’m currently working as a Product Manager building some APIs but really my biggest skill is data analysis and creating work for engineering teams. Not really sure how I could use these skills to build something of my own. The only thing I can think of would be freelancing on the side and doing sql/excel analysis for clients on like Upwork or something.

Does anyone have experience with related service providers wanting to discontinue services because the student is no longer making progress? In my eyes this is absolutely not a good reason! What are your thoughts? I’m mainly talking about OT and PT services for kids older than 3rd grade. Is there something I’m missing? I would never discontinue a reading program because a student isn’t making progress - I would work my butt off to find a solution. Is it different with OT and PT?
