Yeah, happens all the time, depending on experience. If someone come in with 4 YOE in consulting they’re going to be MBA level with a degree or not.

They don’t do that at PwC I don’t think

Except they have a shiny degree and you don’t. That’s why they get more $

You have to go to a firm that doesn't differentiate pay for MBA hires.

Has/did anyone find that their curiosity or number of interests hinder them in figuring out what they wanted to do with or after an MBA? Some days i could see myself trying to go into IB for a few years, but i have a lot of other personal interests that i could see myself trying to make a career out of. I’ve been thinking about taking the GMAT for two years but because of Covid/me not deciding what i want to do, i haven’t decided if i want to go down the mba route. Turning 28 soon
