Anyone here used GRE score for post-MBA MBB recruiting? Does the score have to be valid at the time of application? Thanks
Graduating senior. Have choices between MBB and SWE at FAANG. Not sure what to do. Long term I’d love to be in a small startup or a leader in a tech company. Not sure which path is better for that. Any thoughts?

Anyone in Europe/Asia down to prep? Got my final round interviews next month for MBB & T2. Done over 50 cases already! Thanks:)
Hi Y'all, sorry to jump in here uninvited as I'm not a part of MBB. I wanted to get your opinion on a firm to get a perspective on if it's a good opportunity or not. Have any of you heard of Stax?
In MBA recruiting, how much do employers care about pre-MBA work experience? What are the chances of landing MBB or BB IB without pre-MBA consulting or banking experience? How would the chances differ at M7 vs T15?
Anyone willing to provide referrals for MBB? For BA/associate consultant roles? Currently I'm looking to get my foot in the door, and I have a good resume and cover letter ready and am prepared for the case interviews. Hope you an help me. Thank you in advance!

Is WLB better at S& than MBB/Tier2 or worse?
I feel like it’s probably the latter because of Utilization/PwC culture, but want to validate.
Booth (no $) or Ross ($$$$)? Goal is to pivot into tech PM with MBB digital consulting as another option. Also on the waitlists for Kellogg and CBS. Thanks y’all!
How do you look for a job in Sweden from the US? Have a Swedish spouse and are thinking of moving from the US. T10 MBA + MBB firm, not sure how to find opportunities or convey experience to them. I could transfer offices to Stockholm but want to see other options

We’re moving to LA next month and looking to buy our first home in about 18 months. We’re planning to do 10% down on a $1.8M -$2M home. Would it be smart to do a multi-unit so we can rent at least half of it? We’d live in at least a 2 bedroom unit. We’re new to the LA market, but I think there will always be a market for renters. Would it be better to use the money to buy a single family house with more rooms and Airbnb out the guest room? Any thoughts?

Became disabled 5 years ago and had to start working permanently from home. Been real interesting to watch people now have to adjust to the same life style and be miserable.
Welcome to my world, luckily it won’t last forever for you.
A partner that I work through every weekend for/have calls with at 10 PM any night of the week told me that I took too long on something (that he gave me no deadline for) and I need to figure out how to do things faster. I churn things out for him SO fast regularly but this I did not prioritize because 1. I had no deadline 2. I have 10 other partners giving me urgent shit on the daily 3. I’ve billed 230+ hours for the past 7 months and I’m burned out. How do I respond? I’m about to lose my mind
Went test driving this weekend. Acura TLX type s was actually better than I expected (although price is still an issue imo, who would pay above MSRP for that besides Acura enthusiasts). The exhaust sounds amazing in sport plus. I just hate the gear selector buttons. It looks better in person
BMW didn’t have the m340 in stock so I test drive the 330ix with m sport package. Underwhelming... I’m really not a fan of the direction bmw went from f series. Maybe the m340 will be better
I am a junior in ID. My work has slowed due to COVID and I’ve told my partners I am available and looking for more work. A partner I was hired to work for is giving almost all of his available work to an experienced associate (practicing ~25 yrs) who works for different partners. Often, it is junior level work. She is entering on cases that I have been working. I get great reviews from the partner/everyone I work with, but I’m concerned about this. Any suggestions on what to do?

I just got 2500 spg points bc hotel maintenance walked into my room while I was in. Pretty f*ed up considering it was 5:30 and I was pantless (note: he saw nothing) is this adequate points?
I got a couple of different job offers. I’m a manager in Strategy and Consulting but I’m a bit lost on which one to accept. I’ve been in three of the big 4 in the last 10 years. From the offers, some are from company’s well known globally but not really amazing benefits/strategic roles or companies not well known but great benefits and roles. I think I care too much about having a well known logo in my resume. Any advice on how to prioritize/make the right decision?

Was hired 6 months ago at a consulting firm with the promise of a project. Started the job and project a few weeks after. Wasn’t a long engagement as originally thought. Have been on the bench since March, people team hasn’t helped with placing me anywhere; even tho I’ve asked for multiple roles.
Got a call today to let me know that if I remain on bench rest of the month, I’ll be let go.
I’ve never been on the bench at any other consulting firm (continued)..
Internal chargeable project opportunity. Nothing too exciting, but ~12 weeks of remote work... so it's pretty relaxing. Thoughts?
