I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.

Brothers and sisters, I wanted to share this with you in hopes that the next time you’re asked to speak at an event, that we use this to push for diversity.
Private school worth it? I think of it as insurance. Less chance your kid is a screw up, sets the baseline of what school he/she gets into higher. makes sure they don’t get lost in the weeds with low student teacher ratio. Anyone else done extensive research or has practical life experiences with this?

Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
I wonder if the ad agency that signed all those diversity pledges, and is trumpeting their diversity at AWNY right now, knows that...
Tips on how to improve relationship between my SO and my best friend (BF)? They are the same gender and recently my SO has been expressing jealousy at the amount of interaction I have with my best friend. Specifically, fights due to BF facetiming me "unannounced" sometimes late at night and sending me pics of themselves when they dress up. I know the BF for longer than my SO and really love them both. BF ives in a different city so difficult to meet and clear tension in person. How to handle?
I’ve thought about writing this post a number of times and have stopped but here goes. We need to stop calling ourselves girls. We need to stop using language that unconsciously minimizes and potentially demeans our gender. If we aren’t students, have jobs, etc we are women. We don’t refer to the “boys on our teams”. If we don’t change the language no one will. Here’s a YouTube video by Mayim Baylik. https://youtu.be/qHH3lhYwqcY

Been working in PA for 2 years. No prior internships or business related work. Is it okay that my resume is just my associate role with like 15 bullet points?
