100% T15. Like with all of us from B4, M7s become a reach.

You have a strong profile. I would focus on the M7/T10, less on the T15s unless you want $ / safety.

Are you an ORM? Seems like your raw stats would make you competitive most places. Probably comes down more to packaging. Good luck!

Forgot to mention I am ORM. South Asian, born and raised in the US. Thanks for the feedback :)

Awesome. Would be surprised if something there didn’t work out. You might even think about shooting a shot at HSW. If the stats are there, no reason not to toss a hat in the ring.

Eh I get it- and obviously that makes it harder. With that said, a bunch of MBB associates post MBA come from other consulting firms. And it’s not like KPGM has zero name recognition. Feel like it’s better not to leave yourself with unanswered questions :)

Should be more than fine for T15s with significant scholarship. For M7s, your stats are very desirable just need to iron out the story

I am almost 32, been w my partner for years & want kids eventually. In a perf world, we’d start trying at about 35 or so.

My off-cycle promotion was announced today as it was getting deferred from last 2 year-end cycles. I was happy with the news and then I was told 3% raise. I am totally shocked and feel rather insulted at the number. Reason- I was already at upper range in the current title! (I know not too much context here) How should I talk to my manager? How much to express? Am I over reacting.

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
