I received a very good scholarship from Booth, is it still worthwhile to do my Columbia interview? Want to give it my all but feeling so burned out from the year long application grind.

If you like Booth, no. What would you stand to gain at Columbia? You’d have to like the program, school, location, or increased scholarship money more to make it worthwhile.

Respect their time by not wasting it.

How much ?

I wouldn’t then. CBS can’t beat that

How to break into PE post MBA (HSW) if I have consulting (ACN) but no I-bank exp? I’m good with financial modeling, so I don’t think the technical interview would be a problem. And if I do break in, would my opportunities be limited in the future for any reason? (Ex. MBB -> I can get on partner track...can I ever hope to get on a similar track at KKR, etc. if I try to break in and join a smaller fund first?)
