MBB -> I can get on partner track...can I ever hope to get on a similar track at KKR, etc. if I try to break in and join a smaller fund first?)

I recently got diagnosed with ADHD. I'm 31 and found this only because b school and post mba consulting job was/is much more challenging than anything I did before.

I just realised it now. My doctor has suggested treating depression (I was also unaware of this) with Wellbutrin first (contd)
