Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
How likely is it for an analyst at a top economic consulting firm to lateral into an MBB or even a top 5 strategy consulting firm?

I’m so sleep deprived I took someone else’s bag from the airport to an airport hotel before my international flight tomorrow. Now I’m riding the shuttle back to return it and hopefully get by bag 🙁🙁
Delta, when I ask you for an electric cart to help me get across a huge airport in five minutes, due to your delay, I do not need a wheelchair and an escort. Seriously.
I gotta say, when FB was launched we only had the Big4, MBB, ATK, OW, Accn, IBM, LEK, Booz. Also, focus was MC/Strategy. I've come to appreciate firms like Slalom, Huron etc -not so much audit group

Federal MBB🐠, were you given the opportunity to work any commercial projects your 1st year with the firm (if desired)? Had a final round years ago but friend advised me to stop the process given passion was retail. At the time switching practices was unheard of, have the times changed?

Thinking about buying a home in the next couple of years either around the Chicago area or suburbs with access to the city. What’s the best neighborhood for a number of factors such as- diversity, safetiness, property value, school rankings, overall funness?

Just received an offer from another big 4 firm that was substantially less than I currently make (more than 10%). Do you guys think it is worth negotiating or should I just pass on it?
Maybe a naive question - Does each MBA application require a specific recommendation letter or can you just upload the same one? Basically, if I apply to 5 schools do my referees need to write 5 separate recommendation letters or do I just get one from them to upload directly via the apps portal?
Does anyone ever feel like they have to do ALL the thinking for their team? I know as strategists, we’re the secret sauce to a lot of goings-on with brands. However, I sometimes feel like folks on my team don’t actually think about how anything will impact the brand/strategy and then just come to me for insight on a half-baked idea that’s off strategy but for some reason has already been shown to a client…
Q for my friend.. she’s newish to flipping her own houses and is a contractor. She bought an investment property and is going to do the work on the house.

Do you consider a retention bonus as a counteroffer if you did not mention you have an offer from another company?
