Congrats on the job. Just take it one day at a time is my rec. It's okay to be future thinking but sometimes you miss great opportunities just because you're zeroed in on one thing you think will be great vs paying attention to what's around you (and possibly shutting out many other great opportunities in the process).

Depends what you want…

Why not just go to MBB now?

D1 is right, MBB values time in the firm at a premium over external YOE. Start your clock as soon as possible if you want to make the jump here

Is it that easy to get into MBB now? Seems like OP is considering it a forgone conclusion that they will get an offer.. But then again maybe things have changed recently
