Hello! I will be attending an unranked B-school in London this fall. I chose the school for a handful of reasons (family, time, program, budget) and even before I have determined that I want to become an MBB consultant post MBA.

I come from an EM country, 10 years in Financial Services from brand-name global firms. Undergrad - Foreign Service.

Realistically, what are my chances of getting into MBB as a consultant? Do I even have a shot at an associate consultant role?

MBB are clubs. If you don't have a ranked B School, you're going to need something else that makes you attractive to them, and you need to tap into the network somehow. Without an internal contact, it may prove even more difficult.

MBB accept <1% of all applicants so significantly less than 0.1. Sorry to be blunt but misery is the delta between expectation and reality. Networking may help, but I'd suggest that you refine your technique beyond simply contacting anyone on here and taking them that you'd like to meet some people from MBB ("especially Bainies") - without any reason or justification whatsoever...

Hey all, 3rd party recruiter reached out to me about a job. We had interview which I think went well. I did not give my salary expectations, but the recruiter provided the hiring budget.

After sending resume, I am now being asked my current income. Seems expectation is ~20-25% comp increase when you change companies. Effectively it would be a promotion, but the budget would be significantly more than 25%.

Do I inflate my current comp? My wife said she had to find a paystub for her job.
