I know of a few, it's fairly rare unless you were a math / CS major in college and have done technical internships. Also grinding leetcode is a hard mindset to get into once your brain is geared towards making slides and telling stories 😅

Was a CS major in college but went the consulting route with internships. Current plan is to grind on leetcode and contribute to open source on weekends — feel like it’s a sign that the most exciting part of my day is what little I get to do in Alteryx/Python when team needs data crunching

Feeling the same, but I think I’d have to go on search to have enough time to get back into it

Anyone willing to help with a resume review/edit? I am in advisory consulting and would like to transition to strategy preferably MBB.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
