Has anyone ever applied to MBB multiple times before getting accepted? Or is the blacklisting thing real?

I applied 7 times over the course of 5 years. Rejected before an interview 5/7 times. Got the job 2 years ago on application #7.

60M people need to be vaccinated. Offering them $1000 each would cost this country $60B. Realistically, you can get to half of that population — $30B. One booster shot for 250M people at 80% uptake — $200B. For $30B - $230B, we can end the pandemic in the USA. Worth it? Edited: add in $5M for an MBB to do this math and put it in a PPT for you. And $50M for a big 4 firm to implement, botch, reimplement.
