Federal consulting vs commercial consulting make a difference in MBA applications? I'm assuming they will think commercial is more prestigious and better for apps.

Dunno if I'm gonna get Deloitte.. I'm screwed.

Yes

There's so many federal consultants though. Should I just jump to another company that isn't in federal?

Speaking from personal experience, Deloitte is Deloitte in the eyes of AD's. Had multiple conversations over the years with various schools, they all same the same, GSAP candidates are the best of Deloitte

I mean GSAP*

GSAP is a huge plus because they don't need to offer any scholarship and know you're guaranteed a great job and salary, which helps rankings. But even without it, coming from Deloitte (even fed) is totally sufficient to land top 10 if your GMAT is solid.

That's what I was thinking and still gunning for...

Do you think HC or S&O makes a difference? Currently in the former... Like it. But have an offer to go to the latter.

Probably not to most people. More important that you can tell great a great story about your XP and goals.

Perf. Thanks. Now I just need to figure out how to overcompensate for my shit GPA.
