My roommates fiancé got it last week! It is mostly random

Chances have been 50:50 for consulting. It will go to AP for sure, primarily if you work at client locations.

I just handed in my two weeks notice without having something else lined up. I’ve interviewed with six companies already and haven’t received an offer. I am beginning to understand that I am doing something wrong, but I have no idea how to fix it. Does anyone know a good career coach or have advice on how to do well during a video interview? I never had an issue with interviews before, but I am really struggling now. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
