Hi friends, I got 69.34% from Imperial college from aeronautics with MEng. Will this hurt my chance for applying to MBB? I am currently working in Accenture as a first year analyst. Had summer intern in Accenture and one year of placement experience in a technology company
(Did terrible in first two year as I spent to much time/trying too hard to really understand what I was learning and did not leave enough time to practise past papers Lol, improved dramatically in last two years)

Then by all means. Apply away

This definitely won’t hurt your chances!! I got a 2:1 (borderline 2:2, failed one of my first year modules) and got offers from McK and Bain (applied as an experienced hire)

Also I’m pretty sure the application portal doesn’t ask you for your % or transcript, just your overall degree classification and course.

Btw a high 2:1 from Imperial in Aeronautics is incredibly impressive, don’t be so hard on yourself!

Go for it and good luck!

thank you so much!

I’m currently interviewing for a hybrid Jr UX Designer role for a fragrance company. The compensation is between 70-80k. I searched the market rate in NYC and the salaries are between 103-120k. I assume this is based on the company, industry, and experience. I have a graphic design background with 10 years experience and have a springboard certification for UX. I don’t want to get low balled as I have been in the past. Is it unreasonable to ask for what’s market value when it’s a team of 5?
