      Being an undergraduate TA is very helpful for your own education as well, and it's very fun to be a mentor for those who are a few years younger than you, taking the same classes you did.


      TAing is very professor dependent

        Business Outlook


        UChicago made it very easy to get employed as a note taker, and the work is to take notes for a fellow student in one of your classes that can't take their own notes. You get paid for being in class, which is great. Although I would also make sure to take very good notes, since one of your classmates depends on them to succeed in the class!


        Not anything I can think of.

      Those hired/rejected by MBB, how did you get the news after the first round of interviews? Via phone or email? As of now all the comms with HR were through email, so not sure what to expect. Also it has been >1 weeks since...🫠McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company



      I recently did a phone interview and it went well. A week later, I get an in person interview with HR. They let me know I will be hearing back from them shortly. On linked in, the position I applied for opened back up, is this a sign that they decided to not hire me? I’ll be reaching out soon. But just got me disappointed.
