And to be clear, I’m not putting all my eggs in one basket. There are other interviews pending as well. But I’m hoping for this particular option. Just curious how direct I should be with my situation. If I knew an offer was coming I’d sit back and relax. Setting some of the other options in motion may create a situation where I feel compelled to accept suboptimal options.

It's a tough one given that oci/eiw is just wrapping up so recruiting is probably slammed, but the radio silence is concerning. I'd definitely go ahead and interview with the other places. You never know, you might really click with those other places. At best, you'd get an offer then can leverage it to pressure you top choice. At worst, you waste a few hours doing interviews at a firm you'll know for sure you don't want to work at.

I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.
