Melbourne. No trump / GOP/ divided mess, no mass shootings, decent affordable healthcare, plenty of diversity and that relaxed "she’ll be right mate” Aussie way of life

Melbourne but Aus has higher tax rates 😭

Australia actually doesn't. I pay waay less taxes in Aussie than nyc (which is less expensive than any area)

EY2 I think the answers are so obvious lol

I used to think that Australia and new zea have a higher tax rate, but they don’t when I look at their “IRS” website. True that the cost of living may be a bit pricy due to the isolated location as islands, but it’s worth it when comparing the food quality, kids education, work life balance, etc. People are a lot nicer than in the US.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
