Taking new job offer while applying in round 1 (now). I’m leaving my company of 5.5 years to start with a new company in October. How/when should I tell this to admissions, and how can I craft this story to not get me dinged from all my schools? Will this totally ruin my chances of getting into school? The role is one step closer towards my post MBA goals. Any advice much appreciated!!

If the story fits, I don't see why this is a unfavorable move. You will be bringing your 5.5 YOE to your class, plus you show initiative and drive to pursue your goal.

If you already applied, you may want to send an update with some explanation; otherwise, your profile doesn't change.

i wouldn’t even tell them unless they ask. i don’t understand why they would perceive it negatively. you can’t put all your eggs in one basket; surely they understand that. what if you don’t get into bschool? you still have to make the best moves for your career at the time.

Yes, particularly with Covid and risk of virtual school again next year!

Why would it be worthy of a ding, if it aligns with your post mba goals (and thereby your story)? It should strengthen your story by showing how you're already on a path to the goals / likely to achieve them. Also may not even come up in interviews even if it were a minus

Just to add, you made it 5.5 years at your first job-assuming that was your first, you made it nearly 4x as long as the median recent grad. You've proven loyalty, and, unless you literally swore fealty to your current employer, leaving isn't breaking any code.

Currently an AP, but have an offer to join McKinsey as an Expert. From what I understand, these are essentially EMs. It would be a hard pill to swallow and become an EM, which was the level I was at years ago. The role would be approx 85% of base salary now, but bonus would be higher. Still TC would be lower until I make Associate Partner (Senior Expert) at McK; long-term comp is definitely higher at McK. Is it worth the short term pain and lower comp as EM for chance at P at McK?
