I’m considering it for next year - will most likely do a weekend mba at Haas if I don’t get into HBS or GSB

How many yoe do you have?

Bs. It is definitely doable. I'm in an emba at a top 15 currently. Not mbb but work between 50-70 a week. Is it worth it? That's a maybe. If you are mbb push to have them pay for it - and take the two years full time schooling.

I wouldn't say definitely doable - it'd be a huge stretch! Sure, there would be studies/projects where you're doing 50-70h per week, but there are also going to be studies where you're doing 80-100h per week, and good luck if you think that your studies are going to be higher priority than any work you have. One option I could see working is if you signed up for part time work or flex work (e.g. 80% pay but you only work 80% of the days as well). Before we go there though, why would you be doing the MBA if you're already at MBB?

Hi all! Looking for advice! Im starting at an MBB out of undergrad (interned at D). Met my cohort and coworkers tonight at happy hour. Everyone’s super nice but I can’t help but feel drained. A partner probably noticed that I was nervous and actually pulled me aside to tell me it’s ok etc. I’m obv grateful for the opportunity but just worried i will be seen as too introverted or not confident enough and be a problem in front of clients. My MBTI type is also “not consultant-y”. Any advice? TIA!

Okay 🐠 I need your input on two scenarios I have. 1 - Join EY cloud strategy as SM working under two partners and with 2 other SMs (will be partners in the next 2-3 years) that I know well; with a fast track to partner for myself. Or 2 - Join BCG DV at EM level and work towards partner level there. Completed final interview last week and got positive feedback. I don’t think there’s a wrong answer, but I have the EY offer in hand, comp difference is negligible.

Why do you feel like this year is so much harder than previous years? This year was supposed to be easier than last year and it’s not 😭 The only reason I can think of is we didn’t have enough time to rest after last year. The only solution I can come up with is giving teachers more time to get things done. What do you think the solutions are to fix this or what has your school already done? My school/district/admin is amazing and they’re wracking their brains to figure it out.
