Trinity Consulting Asking for a friend. Went to a t10 school for neuroscience and applied to med school last cycle but didn’t get the results he wanted (got into md programs but had a 524 mcat and a 3.9 gpa so was aiming for a t20 so is reapplying). During this extra year he is looking to get into life science consulting. He has only really done research/worked as a medical assistant but was wondering if anyone could help him get referrals or get direction. Putnam Associates ClearView Healthcare Partners TRINITY

Is he for real? Just go to med school. 1) No one wants to hire someone for only a year. 2) Not wanting to go to a medical school because it’s not top 20 shows a certain amount of entitlement. 3) Plenty of people go to schools in the Caribbean and still end up in good residencies. 4) Bench research is probably better for your friend’s med school CV

Think there was a bit of confusion - I meant top ten ugrad which I know helps get interviews at least (I went from med school plans to consulting last minute lol). He was kind of following out of love with the concept of med school but clearly knows a lot about science (524 mcat haha) so was asking for references for him.

How is your agency managing the war for talent these days in terms of retention? I’m a little at odds with mine where we seem to be giving promotions and higher pay to any and everyone who gets an offer elsewhere. In the long term I don’t see how it benefits us to have talent with further inflated titles running things they aren’t skilled for. It also makes ppl like me who had no intention of looking want to look just because. Curious what others are experiencing/feeling?
