Here is the track from someone I know : Lvy School - McKinsey - PhD from Oxford - Member of State House Representatives - State Senator - Member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Good luck.

Burnout, crisis counselling. Taking time off to answer the big personal questions “What am I doing with my life.” Possibly “retiring” for a more meaningful life.

@SA2 is spot on. McK —> HBS person will still be at the mercy of shareholders and boards come quarter end MIT —> Jane Street person would have made 8 figs by age 30 and be in a position to retire

Wow! Don’t take this the wrong way but I always imagined that someone who made it into HBS and McK would have a better idea about his / her career track My advice is take 2-3 months off and think really hard about what you want to do with your life. Luckily, no matter what path you choose, people will welcome you with open arms at this point.
