It doesn’t have to be unique, just genuine. People understand why you want to make the jump to the stronger platform. So be yourself and be authentic (although would probably avoid the $$$ and exit oops answer 😅)

Yup. I talked about how I liked consulting and thus wanted to continue doing it at a firm like BCG that works on the highest caliber of clients on really impactful cases. Not to mention the folks and resources around you to help you become the best consultant. One really good tip for your story to be more resonant is to bring in anecdotes from consultants you networked with. Sort of like the STAR framework but with someone else’s anecdote. eg I want to work on really high impact cases, Johnny from the office told me about this growth strategy case for his client that he worked directly with the CEO and saw changed implemented across the enterprise ... etc”

What level are you? If you’re still an analyst or associate/consultant, I’d think beyond that. You can lateral without an MBA

Wanting a change in type of work or industry. T2 firms are more limited in work (vertical or horizontal depending on firm), so if the work you want to do isn't available, a switch makes sense.
