Agree with McK1. Or at least make it fairly obvious that you aren't exactly OK with this and it's interfering with your plans. That way - they sort of "owe you one"

How long until someone is pigeonholed into a specific litigation area, generally? I started at a V50 firm in a different practice area, switched to plaintiff’s side securities litigation and am in my second full year of this practice. I like the firm and like the work, but am cognizant that at some point I need to decide if I am sticking with this or want to broaden my practice. How long does someone generally have to make this type of decision? Im a 2018 T14 grad for reference if it matters.

Had a mommy breakdown. In-laws come over every Sunday and constantly make comments during/resist my 10 month olds bedtime. Hes a sleep champ, but the deviation from his schedule by 10-15 mins makes it harder for him to fall asleep. I feel uncomfortable pushing back on my FIL when he picks up the baby and legit takes him when I say it’s bedtime. Husband apologized and is supportive but how do you recover after a frustrated/overwhelmed random mommy cry? I feel so drained and hubby is trying to ..

First time in 6 years being in a serious relationship and the holiday season is magical. All those years of being single were worth it to find the right person. A good relationship is not overrated, and when it’s right, it just ‘fits.’ Know your worth and never settle! 💕

How much of a difference long term is there between an in person MBA and part time, especially from a recurring standpoint? I understand short term recruiting is generally better for on campus, but realistically I don’t think I have a shot at M7, and a low shot at T15. Already making $100k (3 YOE, looking to start MBA fall 2023) and can’t really see the ROI taking 2 years off for T25. I already left Accenture and post-MBA goal isn’t MBB/IB, but more likely an LDP.
