      Thanks Labcorp. I see a huge bump in stock . They are only offering 35k I wonder how they will react if I ask for 200k . Is 200k reasonable stock ?

      I was saying 200k for stocks because only then there is a chance of getting 120 - 150 k stocks.

      Note: stocks depends on team to team, so some may offer and some may not... It's just worth a shot. Nothing wrong in trying..
