Easy to get to Deloitte federal consulting from there...the rest they make nearly impossible. Fundamental lack of resources and reach particularly for MBB. Think it through.

MBA definitely yes, Gtown MBA maybe not... Look for other schools, if you are from DC, Darden, UVA and Wharton can be good options; all consulting firms (MBB, PwC & Strategy&, Deloitte, Accenture, E&Y...) are coming on grounds at these schools and that really helps getting a job (I think 30% of my class went into consulting).

Yes. I switched from engineering (not IT) to MBB. This would have been tough without and MBA.

Does fed consulting (big4, MBB) usually have better WLB than general practice does? I have a job I love with a solid 40-45hrs/week, but somewhat underpaid, so just dreaming of other oops in the future (post-MBA).

Understood that pay is slightly lower in fed, but it would still be a whole lot more than what I make now 🙃
