Curious on this as well. T2 consulting -> LMM -> MBA -> UMM/MF or T2 consulting -> MBB (starting over) -> UMM/MF or T2 consulting -> LMM -> MBA -> MBB -> UMM/MF ?

@ca1 - not athletes in particular but just any unique background really. Finance isn’t rocket science and having a star athletic background indicates a hunger to work hard and thus ability to succeed

MBB no doubt

Was never the type to care so much about feeling out of place but the last few months since I joined MBB i've been finding more and more how the firm is full of rich kids with similar experiences and a shared network. It shouldn't matter, we're here to work, but I'm bothered anyway. Idk where I stand here -- cant blame them for having overlaps w each other -- but I feel very much excluded to say the least. Can't relate. Feels like it makes a steep slope to succeeding in consulting even steeper.
