Yep. You’ll have to make sure you demonstrate a very strong technical / finance acumen. But it is certainly very possible. Venture and PE (ops or investing) roles are very, very competitive and so just keep that in mind.

To what extent is MBB a "mini network" itself? They say it's easier to land exits when you have firm alum at your target company. If you're at one MBB, does that same logic apply (to a lesser extent) for people at the target company who were formerly at a different MBB than me?

One of the reasons I want to transition from industry to consulting (tier 1) is that I get frustrated when I have to collaborate with mediocre people. My assumption is that Tier 1 consulting firms hire really sharp people and if I can get in, I’ll be collaborating with folks on top of their game (not expecting much from clients). I’m aware there are personal aspects I need to work on like my mindset, patience etc etc, but I just get so frustrated with blatant stupidity.
