I passed on Deloitte, but got rejected by Harvard. Guess that makes me a statistical unicorn.


“We hired 62,000 people last year, out of 3.5 million resumes we received” A resume is not exactly an application… I’m sure a heavy % of the millions are monster.com uploads.




I guess that vindicates my Harvard college rejection


Dang! Ya I'd be interested in how they define "application". But yeah consulting has gotten so competitive as a whole lately! 😨

I obviously am not telling him he can’t play Xbox, but I’m wondering if I have the right to feel annoyed when he is playing for hours and hours during the work day and doesn’t care to seek out things to do much on his own outside of the apt. I also hate how mean he is to random kids he plays but I guess that’s just part of playing? I’ve never dated a gamer before.

Deloitte GSAP / Post MBA, what has been your ~ % salary increase each year? I currently have a large scholarship opportunity at a school and wondering its worthwhile to forgo GSAP payment for a T2 salary like S&, Kearney, OW, etc.

Would you take a fully remote job for a pay cut? Or you think should get paid more since you are not using any resources in the office?




Joined Deloitte this year, was very happy after getting hikes then I learned my friends are switching recently (from my previous company) to other Big4, acc, Infy etc and getting almost 5-6 lac more than my current package (~50% more).
