Move to other big 4, it doesn’t take 20 years, maybe 16 total.

Boomerangs are okay, but I’m trying to gain some realistic insights (eg. not government/industry lateral partners).

What’s your questions OP. Am homegrown and in the cycle now. Know handful of folks that have grown in firm to P.

Indeed SM1. The firm may not say it but more folks will go to MD and if they want to switch over they can try through MD. Less spots at P nowadays it seems and folks don’t want to wait 8-10+ years at SM so might as well do MD then try and go for P once you get a better case and spots open.

I’m going to be pretty sad if I end up getting rejected.
