it sounds like if you did take SU, you'd be in a great position to get a future job at a WE equivalent, if SU doesn't work out.

Re: Which job should I take?

IDK I don't see the appeal of having to put up start-up level dedication/work with zero equity, and "maybe partner in 5 years" is extremely bird in the bush. WE sounds better on total comp, upside, brand and stability, particularly if they have an IPO on the horizon. I'd take WE and not look back un...

For a friend: 2.90/TBD LSAT - AA Female

LSN is pretty sparse in this range. She took a cold PT and scored in the mid-160s. Very confident that she can score in the 170s with some work. She is ~7 years out of UG. Trying to give her an idea of what she might be working towards. Seems like: (i) with a 170+, the low end of the T14 comes into ...
