@OP seems you've just started out in your career. You have one of 3 choices - go for a full time MBA/PGDM course and get campus placement into Consulting roles; switch to a Big4 consulting firm at an junior level now; work your way up the hierarchy in your current org, chances are you work will eventually become as that of a consultant, but option 3 is the least effective way to make a switch later on in your career into true management/strategy consulting. All the best!

Also, have been picked out for picking maximum number of cases in team and have been given some responsibilities of exception cases which is always given to members who have spent at least over a year in the process and it's been only 8 months for me in this team. I feel like performance wise I am doing pretty good but the work isn't something I want to do in the long term as I am very much keen about finance. Here comes my question, what are the chances that I can make it into management consulting at the lowest level. I have a bachelor's in business administration. Please do share your views as it'll help me map a career path. Thank You !!

22, healthy, single, M. Should I really max my HSA? I completely understand the triple tax savings but my thought process is I don’t think I’ll have a large med expense for a while. I know, I know, I know anything could happen but the likelihood is pretty low rn and I don’t want to lock this money up for solely health costs when I rather be saving for a house down payment or continued education. I still plan to contribute to it, but should I really max it out at my age??
