Calling help from Haas UC Berkeley or MBA candidates who deferred.

I just got admitted to Haas FT with a really good scholarship; but I’m in the middle of my Green Card (GC) application with Deloitte and due to covid/gov delays, it looks like it will complete just a few months after the school starts in 8/2022. I want to make the case for an one-year deferral and preserve my scholarship.

If anyone has any experience to share or any advice on how to approach this with the school, pls comment

I didn’t defer last round because unfortunately I was wl. But I’m lucky to get my GC a few months back and then got my dream offer this round. To me this is worth it despite extra hard work to earn an offer. Just sharing my own experience. It’s a wonderful feeling to have it in our pocket.

What’s the best consulting specialty for exiting into a top tier PE’s Ops group? Should I stay in strategic transformation consulting or strive to get in M&A strategy or restructuring? I have 2 YOE, currently focusing on strategic transformation work. Do I need an MBA (non-target UG)? Should I wait till I get promoted to an EM before looking for an exit? Does being a part of PE Ops team mean pretty much being a temporary co-executive at a portfolio company? Feel free to destroy my naiveté
