How difficult (relatively) is it to recruit for an MBB London office from a T15 US MBA program compared to a US office? I know it's not done often, but is that mainly due to the salary difference?

London is one of the most competitive office (if not the most competitive) across all consulting companies, even more so MBBs who have a ton of people from other markets who want to transfer there. The reason it's not normally done from T15, is that the chances are low. I have a few friends who did recruit successfully there from M7 though, some of them did exchanges with European top business schools too (LBS/INSEAD)

Agree with C1. London is hugely competitive, even if you’re already at the firm and trying to transfer. I tried and got turned down. If your goal is MBB period, choose your cities/offices carefully. That said, I don’t want to discourage you. You should definitely try. However, it is easier, though still difficult, to transfer there once a member of the firm.

Can attest to that - London is great and if you end up there even for a few years, it a place to remember!

Hi All! I have a valid & stamped H1 until Mar'22. Planning a vacation to home country (India) in Nov/Dec as I don't have to worry about getting it stamped.

There's a chance the extension might get approved during my stay there & I might not get that new 797 mailed to me. Can that create an issue in immigration if I just show the current stamp/797? TIA!!!
