Currently, looking for an exit, interviews are lined up for both Data scientist and Biz op roles. Pay, wlb are the key things I’m looking for. I know Data scientists enjoy a better wlb, any thoughts on how day to day life is in biz op roles?

I would stick with Data Science, the demand is so high for that skill set that you have more leverage when it comes to maintaining WLB or just moving to another company if you make a mistake and a role is not a good fit. The same may not be true for biz ops.

Sorry to not answer your question but mind if I ask how many YOE and what level you are exiting at? And also, do you have data science skills and did you use them at McK?

I have ~ 3 YOE and I would be exiting to either Sr. Data scientist or Sr. Biz ops associate. Yes, I’m in an analytics role at McK.

First time GMAT, scored a 650. Practice tests were coming in around 680, but bombed quant (41Q, 38V, 8 IR). I am confident that I can score better my next time around, but out of curiosity, what rank of school could I possibly get into with this score? 2 years work experience B4 consulting, very solid undergrad involvement/GPA. Trying to decide if it’s worth applying to my target schools this year or if I delay for another year in order to study more.

Applying to industry after 2 yrs in a data-heavy strategy consulting role, and running into an odd problem: people are automatically putting me into a "heavy-quant" box and becoming apprehensive of my fit for a business role (strategy, FP&A, etc). 2 Qs: 1. Does this sound plausible, or am I overthinking based on a small sample? 2. How would you highlight your fit/interest in moderately quantitative roles? Consultants generally like my "Context> result> personal contribution" format of bullets
