Does pre-MBA T2 consulting experience help or hurt for M7 summer internship interviews at MBB? Have heard prior consulting is helpful but have also heard that MBB doesnt like “bad habits” formed at other consulting firms.

Doesn’t matter. Every C1 learns from scratch. We have plenty of folks from other consulting firms hired through the MBA process (including from D!)

It won’t matter, you’ll be on great footing if you go to a target school. Good luck! 👍

I don’t think it hurts you just need a clear rationale for why you are leaving your firm

Wouldn’t the alumni networks and exit opportunities at MBB be enough justification to leave a OW, LEK, ATK? All are fantastic firms, but I think MBB reputation opens more doors. Same reason why folks would pick Harvard over Wharton (even if both great schools).

You are overthinking this so much

Agreed.

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?

The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
