It’s possible. I interviewed with BCG. Then again, I went to a target school for UG. To answer your question though, yes, it’s more than possible.

Yes this happens all the time. They will just try to bring you in at a much lower level.

Yes it’s possible. I’ve seen it recently, twice. But they had a degree from a target school. (One was Duke, one was UMichigan)

It’s possible if you have functional expertise they are looking for but not common

If you have a technical background it's possible. AI, Data Analytics, Machine Learning.

I feel in over my head. Everyone on my team came from industry here at MBB so they bring deep expertise within strategy and ops into and so they know their stuff. I feel I don’t contribute to team discussions because I don’t have any domain knowledge... tips or recs of getting skilled up in a space that I don’t have a ton of experience in? I’m reading thought leadership and all that jazz but does the first time I have a lack of self confidence.

How do I divide the chores in this case? I’m the breadwinner - husband has been taking time off from work. No kids. Two dogs. I feel like I do more chores because there are some things that I just can’t stand. Like dishes left in the sink, dirty floor, dirty dogs, laundry…etc. When I ask him to do those chores, he says he will do them later but he takes forever. So I do them instead. He does grocery shopping, yard work, some cooking. Is it unfair if I repeatedly ask him to do more? 😡😡

I work in a 7-attorney firm with a national presence. Partly because I’m only a few months in, I work a roughly 8-6 day.

We don’t have minimum billable hours so it doesn’t matter much for the firm’s sake but I think I’m missing out on learning the important skill of billing my time. Has anyone ever experienced this?
