I want to get into a top program on the west coast, bc if I don’t stay in consulting, I’d like to work in big tech (ie. google), and I’ve lived in LA/SD my whole life. Any tips on what to work on right now? I’m in public sector tech consulting atm. My ug gpa is 3.85 from a decent state school in math/econ, and im confident i can get a good GMAT score. Posting in the women’s bowl bc I like you guys better 🙈

Do your best to kick ass on your projects, network, and do whatever you need to be a great consultant. Reach out to sponsored MBA grads who came back to Deloitte after bschool and ask about their experiences. Also reach out to alumni of your college who went to top-tier MBA programs and ask about their experiences. Sidenote, if you get into a top program on the East Coast, you can still come back to the West Coast and have the same job opportunities. Especially if you come back to Deloitte on the West Coast and are looking for local exits.
