At a T25 MBA and debating ACN strategy vs Deloitte for my internship. D had me interview for the F&EP group. D Recruiter told me the internship is now a "cross consulting" group with more flexibility to work across different practices (similar to ACN's ASCDP). I was curious if anyone had add'l info on either internship and what FT alignment process is. I'm interested in M&A consulting so was curious what my chances are at aligning with D's M&A offering. Also any info on D vs ACN is appreciated.
