Either get an MBA from a Top 5, or become an expert in an emerging area and hope they are looking to expand their practice in that area.

I was a SM and was offered an associate role at McKinsey, similar to a new MBA - so it could be more than one level and a pay hit as well. So BCG1 is correct in that point.

It's possible but harder. And you will come in at a rank below your current rank. If you had an MBA or Ph.D, that would be better.

Top15 MBA is fine. No need to pressure yourself that it's top 5 or bust.

Is it possible to leverage my MA in Industrial/Organizational Psychology instead of getting an MBA? Or to get a PhD in I/O?

Hmm ok. Thanks B1!

@PC1 did you take the offer?

No

Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2? I got a few offers recently, and now have to make a decision between Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2. GT has higher salary and position, while KP's people are really nice and professional during the interview, besides it's hard for me to say no to a Big 4 opportunity. GT is focusing on enterprise and high net worth taxes, while KP is focusing on energy mining industry tax and tax provisions. Hard to make decision!

On ApplicantLab, the coach goes on quite a bit about having a lot of white space on your resume (easy on the eyes), etc etc. This is totally wrong, right? Ive explicitly a Wharton admissions officer say to use margins to your advantage (pack more stuff in) and have seen an application guide at an MBB, where the resume templates include very little white space. Obviously every word should be valuable, but just wanted to check my sanity here since AppLab offers good advice elsewhere.

How do you keep your endurance up while interviewing at multiple places? I went from hearing nothing for months to having 4-8 interviews a week. It’s a great problem to have, even if it’s been different kinds of draining when applying for jobs vs. prepping for and going through interviews.
