Hi fishes,

I am a strategy consulting enthusiast from a middle class family. Don't have the financial stability to take a loan for an MBA and hence had to drop some renouned admits this year ( Think top IIM's) due to family circumstances. I still dream big and request you to provide some insights for my research:-
1) Average expected package of an associate
2) Average experience expected at ZS to get hired at associate level
3) Good books to upskill and ace the consulting case interviews

Would it ruin the friendship if you asked your male friend the current status of how they see the friendship as platonic or something more? We have hung out prior on a casual basis as friends but I have initiated most of the time.
