Interning at MBB next summer. Looking at getting a backpack now for upcoming travel, but I’ve heard that the firm has discounts on Tumi/Briggs and Riley. Should I get something around Black Friday, or wait to see what the company offers in terms of discounts?

Nobody will think twice if you use a cheaper bag on your internship btw. If you have the cash go ahead but not going to move the needle.

Lmao why do you need a tumi bag? You’re an intern just use a normal bag instead of a $500 backpack

What’s the probability of getting business school sponsorship from MBB? And how does only having ~1 year working there impact chances? I really enjoy my AI/data science work at Deloitte and am 90% sure I’ll get sponsored to go in Fall 2023 (have 2+2 acceptance) but like everyone else I find MBB appealing for the work/people/brand/pay. Trying to decide if an offer’s worth taking before starting the casing grind

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
