Make sure you start networking nearly and take part in the early MBA connect events hosted by those top-tier firms. The rest is just hard work and a bit of luck. Since Ivey is one of the target schools, it’s definitely doable!

I've heard MBB firms need you to have a PR status for roles in Canada, do your research on that. Congrats on getting into Ivey! Great school!

If you’re at B4, would you get any serious consideration at M7s if you tried to matriculate right when you hit the 3 year mark (apply at 2)? I hear that a lot of MBB people do this but the standard timeline for B4 seems to be to matriculate at 4 YOE.
