To all those who commented yes, based on what factors you said so?

OP asked if they have a chance, so if they do some work to get a referral it's plausible they could land an interview. If OP asked about their chances they might be getting different answers, but they asked if it was possible.

Yes

Thanks C1. Any experience? Insights? You wanna share?

What’s your GRE score

I didn’t have to take the GRE. They liked me in the interview round and my undergrad GPA is 3.9. Also, I have 9 years of experience in IT!

Yes.

Yes.

I imagine this wouldn’t be a shot at the general McKinsey strategy practice. This must be a more niche programmer role right?

I would highly suggest not to aim for an engagement manager level not coming from strategy. BCG and Bain have an analytics division. McK has Carbon Black, But that’s mostly analytics and dataviz.

Does anybody do a “work uniform” in the office? I’m new in an in-house role at a company that has dress for your day (primarily jeans), and I’m thinking about doing that when we go back (1-2 days a week). I need to buy new clothes post-covid anyways. I’m thinking some casual, but quality, plain black dresses that I can wear a sweater, jacket, blazer (when necessary), shirt, etc. over. Could dress up or down with shoes. Thoughts?

Alright so there’s a thing called reclaim my status. If you had a reason why you lost status in the last year or two like COVID, baby, new job, etc. You need to submit some basic documentation and they give you that status for 3 months with a DRASTICALLY lower threshold to make the status permanent and even higher tiers are much easier to obtain during those 3 months. Google “reclaim my status Delta”

Scenario: making $77k (example), ready to leave B4, found perfect job opportunity online. Salary range stated as 50k to 80k. I'm asked for my salary requirements on the application. (Cont)

First time interviewing as an experienced hire. When a recruiter asks salary expectations, do I counter and ask for a range? I don’t want to go high & get dinged but also don’t want to get shorted.
