Looking forward to FB being the recipient of a series of multi billion dollar fines related to the GDPR. Should do wonders for their stock.
Yeah, the EU really crippled Google ($700B market cap) with their multi-billion dollar fines.

Re: CS career megathread / AMA

I've literally never met somebody who thinks it's easy to get hired at Google or that a Google employee doesn't make good money. If somebody knows about MBB's legendary case interviewing, then they also probably know about how selective FB and Google are. And if anything, I would think that the CS b...

Re: CS career megathread / AMA

FB and Google are definitely comparable in prestige to MBB (or GS/MS/JPM or PJT/Evercore or KKR/Blackstone/Apollo)

And FB/Google > MBB once you factor in on-hire stock and refreshers for total comp (plus FB's stock is about to πŸš€)

Re: CS career megathread / AMA

Given that this is the CS thread, does Big4 in this context mean EY/PWC/KPMG/Deloitte or the big tech companies? Sorry for the stupid question. I'm somewhat interested in transitioning into CS myself at some point in my career (though probably not immediately). Typically refers to the large-cap tec...

I forget how this rivalry started, but good game bro. Better luck next year.
Good game, well predicted.

My cockiness did me in this year, but I will train harder for the next admissions season. See you in 2019.

Tough competition this year.

I improved my prognostication score by one point and fell 5 spots in the rankings:

Math majors also outperform English majors on the LSAT. According to LSAC, the average LSAT score for an English major is 154, while the average LSAT score for a math major is 162.

Re: impact of GRE on law school admissions and scholarships

Sure, the GRE provided some wiggle room for the AdCom but they're still not going to accept candidates if they didn't have the WE & proven their leadership. Don't know what b-school you went to but surely you must understand this. Unless you're actually trying to argue that 20 extra points on a sta...

Re: impact of GRE on law school admissions and scholarships

Not having to report GRE scores is such a huge advantage for early-adopter schools to potentially massage entering-class statistics and game law school rankings. This doesn't discount your point, but USNews claims they're factoring GRE scores into their rankings. For both law schools and business s...

Re: impact of GRE on law school admissions and scholarships

Like the GRE vs. LSAT, the GRE vs. GMAT distinction worked for b-school admissions for a while (might still be working?) since people could sneak in with lower GRE scores relative to GMAT takers.

I feel really strongly that with all the uncertainty, we're in the golden era of potentially backdooring would-be reverse splitters into top law schools via the GRE.

Re: Taking the GRE for Law School

NYU apparently sent out an email this past week to students/alums who have taken the GRE requesting their scores for the purposes of doing a study on the GRE and potentially accepting the GRE in lieu of the LSAT. I think they might join the list of GRE-accepting law schools for the 2018-19 or possib...

I know this probably won't work for you right now since you already posted, DZ, but for future reference, anybody who wants to contribute can PM me, and I'll post on their behalf.

Also, thanks for the writeup, blueapple! Always good to get the perspective of someone doing Fed Gov work.
