Lowest ranked b school you'd attend? There's a real opportunity cost to b school as someone who's in consulting out of undergrad. My thought is Wharton.

It all depends on what you want to do - if MBB is what you're looking for, if you want to go back to current firm, if you want to transition to industry X. There's also an awful lot of rankings out there. I'd definitely say only go to b school if you know what you want to get at it and the place you chose has a decent shot of getting you there. If what you want to get is a two year vacation with sponsorship and then go back to your old form - go for it! Just be honest with yourself beforehand (I did that myself).

A2. Depends on what you want to do. A top undergrad degree still puts you on the radar of a LOT of great firms...and you can still leverage that school's network. I've seen a summa cum laude at a top undergrad with a midtier, non-target grad school degree (where they crushed it, winning fellowships, etc) land interviews and offers at top firms. And that undergrad degree was one reason why.

Duke...if you look at schools ranked 10-15.

They still send approx 30-40 people to mbb per year and another 30-40 to the deloittes, pwc, acn, and amazons of the world.

Those are still good odds for landimg a top notcj company when you realize that those schools have approx 250 people in the full time classes

Darden is no where near as fratty as fucking HBS or Wharton.
The "lowest" school you'd go to is going to depend a lot on where you're coming from. I came over from the Army, went to Darden and had a blast, and now I'm at McK. If I'd started at McK, I probably wouldn't have seen the value in going to Darden unless McK was paying for it.

My background is more in marketing, project management, design and communications. How technical do you have to be to land a PM gig? What's the best way to bridge the technical knowledge gap? Frankly, it feels overwhelming for someone like me who isn't particularly drawn to the tech-side of PM. There's the basics, and then there's the nature of tech and all things digital, just constantly changing. How might I catch up and keep up?

I’ve been struggling to raise my two girls after my separation and keep up with big law expectations for months. I know that partners say they care to pay lip service and seem genuine but no one truly does. Well today, I got taken off a case because i believe i wasn’t attentive enough to the partner in charge. I feel like that was it for me and no longer have the desire to “make it” at a big firm. Less money and time that i can truly enjoy with my daughters is better.
