Would like to avoid IB, or at worst a mba IB internship.

Honestly IB is probably the easier route if something like Bain Cap is your goal. It’s pretty darn hard to break into a decent fund (investment role) with big 4 background.

Any indication on pedigree and IB tier?

Yep. From our group we have 1-2 associates go MF in each class of ~60, and maybe 5-7 go MM/LMM. Huge uphill battle straight out of consulting to get to MF. Pre-MBA buyside experience is a near prerequisite for post-MBA MF. Still would be an uphill battle out of M7 (really just HSW), but that would give you a chance to move upstream

EYP1 are you headed to PE/what tenure are you?I’m at the point where I’ve been studying a lot, have met with some HHs, etc

Anyone going from consulting to a MF is rare to be honest. Even from MBB, it’s not that common simply because 1) there aren’t that many MFs (~10) and then 2) nearly all except for Bain cap, advent and maybe CVC take exclusively bankers
