I work with tons of Harvard and Wharton people at KPMG Strategy. I’d say the lack of MBB experience hasn’t stopped them from landing great jobs here. If anything it helped...

HSW more than compensate for lack of MBB on your resume for post MBA jobs.

You listed other good jobs yourself SC. FAANG (and other tech companies), IB, PE, etc are all amazing opportunities outside of MBB. And you should also consider the personal growth and long term opportunities that come from holding an HSW degree. Its not all about the immediate job after school
