Not regret, but I think consulting should also raise salaries. We are working crazy hours, super productive, and the firm is generating high revenues- which was the justification for raising salaries in banking. We should get raises also.

No. If that 30k really would have pushed the needle for you, you need to re-examine your decision calculus.

Due to some room mate shifting I am going to shift from paying 900 a month to about 1300. Only other option was getting a single for 1400, I live in a low cost of living city so didn’t think getting a studio would be worth it consider I work from home. Total compensation will be just other 90k this year. Any tips for making sure I stay on the FIRE PATH? Concerned that I’m now forking over an extra 5k after tax in rent and realizing that losing potential room mates has huge financial implication
