When does onboarding typically start for new associates? We’ve heard nothing as of now - normal or due to covid? If the latter, any insight as to when onboarding might start? (V20 Biglaw)
How will you brothers and sisters be celebrating eid this upcoming weekend if your area is affected by covid-19 lockdowns? If it is not affected are you all taking precautions still?

Have any of you taken FMLA leave due to a positive COVID case for a member of your household? My husband just tested positive for COVID and I am not sure yet if my 2 toddlers have it. In any event, even if they are healthy, they can’t go back to daycare for awhile so childcare is all on me. I’m wondering if I should apply for FMLA leave so I don’t completely crash my hours, but I am also not sure whether this situation qualifies for FMLA.

Got to love our exquisite covid protocol, especially when someone in the office gets it and upper management does nothing to address it putting all our life at risk.
Had a coworker scramble after a Covid-19 related school closure in Seattle today -- those of us with kids, make sure you have a plan + contact in place for your kids if their schools close!
So far, I’ve dodged three bullets, more or less, 3 exposures to covid, and because of diligent mask wearing and hand sanitizing, I’m thankfully negative. Staff meeting this Friday though, probably to bump us all to virtual, perhaps, anyone else?

Best way to decline a bbq invite when you are still worried about COVID-19 and being around your friend, their family and friends?
Feeling depressed because I just did a more realistic budget calculation for a March trip to Spain. B/w the need for refundable flight and hotels (I normally do airbnb and don’t care about refundable flights, and I don’t have enough miles and can only get us partial coverage at 1 hotel out of 2) plus covid tests, the trip is about $1000-2000 more/pp than I anticipated. I don’t think my SO’s gonna want to spend the money to go..Should probs look into backup intl locations 😭

New & young consultant here. Feeling so inadequate on my project, have received positive feedback so far ... imposter syndrome and fear of being fired. Any advice?
Interested in applying for an MBA program, and have seen the class profiles, but I’m still unsure. Started off as an engineer and left for consulting before moving to product at AWS. Is this kind of combination the norm for applicants these days?
Landed 20 minutes early in ORD after 4 hour flight but still waiting in the plane because, of course, the gate is not available. Just watched the sun set from my window 😩
Hi- I was curious to know if receiving 221(g) on approved H1B change of status applications is common. I’m previously an F1 and switched over to H1B recently. I have my appointment upcoming and was curious about the commonality of the occurrence.
Just started working at a big law firm about 3 weeks ago in a completely different field than I expected nor wanted to be in (but I needed to start working asap). I’m just a baby lawyer but I can’t stop shaking the feeling that I don’t even want to be a lawyer. Is this just nerves? the environment? or is this an even normal feeling?
