When you network, how do you find where to add value for the person you’re networking with? Everyone tells you to find “where you can add value”, but when you’re just starting out nobody trusts you enough to actually assign any task to you.

I have the first performance review of my career coming up. As an Analyst, my major responsibilities include being an Excel and PowerPoint monkey. How do I spin these to make them sound impactful?
I asked 3 of my higher ups to write me letters of recommendation a month ago when I put in my resignation. I went on PTO for a couple weeks & followed up with my manager today. He told me “actually I was told we aren’t allowed to write them for you. Sorry.”
I asked why and he just shrugged and continued the conversation...
Has anyone heard of anything like this? Bosses “not being allowed” to write LORs for exiting employees? I’m leaving on my own terms & good standing.
Any tips to compartmentalize anxiety triggers or put them in perspective such that they seem smaller?

What type of stories do MBB consultants who want to continue their career in their company tell in their applications? Im going to apply next year but Im not sure how interesting my application can be. I dont have time to do much asides from work and in the future I'd like to work in PE (have worked in many projects in this practice) which is pretty cliché.
Can any MBB folk share examples of their general story?
One thing I have overlooked in the application process is the references. I do not have any at the moment that can provide a reference. How did you all find one for your self?
Anyone else thinking about applying to HBS/GSB for R2 as a Hail Mary? Got into an M7 and a T15 R1 but can’t help the urge to give it a shot..
Any suggestions for good pre-MBA programs/coursework to do?
I know I have at least 3/4 years before applying but my employer offers tuition reimbursement and wanted to get a head start looking at options! I went to a public Ivy (top 30ish) but my college GPA was a 3.2 in liberal arts (worked part-time most of college & some outside health issues didn’t help with that), so I’d like to prove I’m capable to admissions outside of a high GMAT.
Does anyone have any alternate resources for question banks? I’m re-writing in a month (scored 680) and have now completed all of the Manhattan guides and GMAT Official Guide (2018) questions.
What is the GRE equivalent of a 700 GMAT score? 700 appears to be the threshold to break for very competitive scores
What are the odds of getting a decent (>40k) scholarship at a non-HSW M7 if coming from a post-MBA field (IB/PE)?
I’d also be an international student if that makes a difference
Best school for tech product management?
For these “virtual coffee chats” hosted by student clubs for prospective applicants - how many people usually join? I may be driving at the time so not sure if I need to have my video on and be engaging in discussion, or if these are more like information sessions. For reference I’m attending the Tuck healthcare club coffee chat.
740 GMAT and 3.9 GPA at state school (attended on full scholarship), top performer at my firm but in TC/digital instead of MC or strategy. What are my chances for programs like Kellogg, Darden, Sloan, etc?
Is it more harder for folks with a Tech background in the Investment Banking domain to get accepted to HSW as compared to consulting experience? GMAT 740
Do the schools give a deadline to recommenders in the auto emails? I wonder if I can state an earlier deadline.
Do I need rec letters from every firm I worked at? I worked at my first company for 8 months and wasnt close with anyone

Anyone else planning to get a lil drunk, type up v12 of an essay, then cry themselves to sleep tonight?
How long does it take CBS to get back with an interview/reject decision for ED?
(PS - I know they say up to 6 weeks but July is relatively early in the process so if anyone on this bowl can share personal timelines that’d be great!)
I think I’ve succumbed to the obsession of only the top schools being good enough. I first thought T15 was good enough, then only M7, then only HSW, and now only H/S. Can someone provide some insight as to why anything other than H/S is worth it? It stresses me out a ton to think that I might not get into H/S and my career goals could be out the window as a result.
Has the option to take the GMAT online from home always been a thing or was it introduced because of covid? Will they take away this option this year?
I am looking for some perspectives. I’m in a technical consulting role and would like to end up as a VP or CTO one day. My plan is to go for an online MBA while working full time (6 figures hard to give up) then pivot afterwards to managing a devs or product management. I am looking at USC and some other less prominent schools on the west coast since I am located in the PST time zone.
I do not want to relocate as my partner has a job here. Any thoughts or things you would also consider?
When and how do you study for GMAT whilst working a 60-70hour week? Considering it’s only few weeks away
