How’s Roland Berger as a brand where you’re from? Sounds like rest of your credentials are great, so average gmat (~730) should do the job

You’re right—why group them? ATK is clearly better.

GPA? Will make a big difference on what score you need to get.

There is no such thing as GPA in my country. I was top 20% of my class student and won an award about a research paper I did. Don’t know if good or not....

Potentially dumb question here: I am starting law school soon and will not be employed (net income of $0 assuming I don’t get a good summer internship next summer).

I’d just rebuy all of the same stocks immediately… am I missing something?

Under normal circumstances I would just reneg, but this economy.

Baby is almost 6mo and has a flat spot on the back of his head (right side). The pediatrician referred us to a physical therapist who suggested exercises that have him look the opposite way of his flat spot. They said PT is just as effective as a helmet if done early. But we put him in daycare during the day and I don’t know for sure if he’s getting a proper amount of “baby exercise”. Anyone ever been in a similar position? I wanted to avoid a helmet but thinking it may be best.
