Thoughts on moving from one MBB to another immediately after? For context the jobs are still on the entry level spectrum. Appreciate your view!

I don't have much experience but I see people care about serving as board member for non-profit. Is that only for MBA applicants or is is good for consulting jobs too? I served on the board for a non-profit but never put that in my resume, I am currently recruiting for MBB and wonder if I should include that on my resume?

Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.

I got into an HSW, but I’m concerned my low GMAT (700) might keep me out of jobs in VC or MBB. Should I/ do I need to retake?

Does anyone else find it a bit odd when talking to MBB people about jobs at their firm and they say ‘well we would have to bring you in as a jr person because you have all sorts of bad habits’.

I've heard there is GMAT cutoff for MBB, anyone know what it is? I'm planning on trying for the tech strat practices at MBB before trying for tech/pm jobs and was wondering if I can even get selected.

Would you agree that Assurance has more/better exit opportunities than Risk Advisory? Am I crazy for wanting to switch to Audit from IA? I know it’s usually the other way around since we get paid a little more in Advisory and “work less” since we don’t have a real busy season. I’m being promoted to S1 in October and I’m planning on going back to school for an MBA degree in about 2 years or so. My goal is to get a consulting job at MBB. TIA!

Should I just create new profiles and act as if I’m a new person to MBB?
