I guess my point is: Isn't all undergrad is a place to learn to think? There are a couple majors that line up with a career, like accountants, but consulting isn't one of them. Conversely, my college roommate who was a history major is now the chief accountant for a huge company, probably because all his BA in accounting colleagues couldn't think or write very well.

The "conquer the world" part made me laugh. I've met several new grads that won't settle for any roles unless they're leading a Strategy project for a client. Lofty aspiration but client execs would never put their company strategy in the hands of new grad with no experience.

@D4 No, undergrad is absolutely not a place where you learn to think. It's a place where you are told *how* to think, and how to not to step on anyone's toes or gentle feelings while adhering to liberal, politically correct bullshit. That's the problem -- there is no free speech or free thought. You are only free to speak your mind if it fits the liberal agenda.

Just want to vent. Do you ever have deliverables that get so much scrutiny that it triggers anxiety when you think about it? Which take so much time you can’t keep up with other team’s work? Which spirals, and then more things get tossed on your plate and then more negative feedback because everything is heads down detailed oriented and takes away time from other activities? Is it just me? Maybe I’m just bad at this job 😕.
