Managers in consulting: what did you put for the “number of direct reports you supervised” field on the GSB app? Guessing we should use average size of our teams? Or total supervised to date?

Hi folks! I've a doubt regarding the whole 'Brand name' concept. So currently I'm working at Accenture total 1 YOE, previously I was part of a dev team but they moved me to a very trash support project and have a 10 hour shift on irregular timings. So I'm thinking about leaving Accenture for a small company in Chandigarh with a pay raise and good work. I'm planning to work in Chandigarh for 8-9 months and then switch to FAANG, will leaving Accenture cause any hindrance in joining FAANG LATER?

Hello! Hope everyone is doing well. I was wondering if I have not heard back from a law firm about a week for a job position. Is this a sign that I should move on?

Context: For the job position, I was originally interviewed for one role, but was later interviewed for a different after having my second interview with an attorney. And also, is this a good or bad thing?

Thank you so much in advance. I really appreciate it!


How do you deal with mistakes? Whether for yourself or from your staff?

Where to apply with 610-640 gmat, 3.1 gpa from state school, 3years at Deloitte, but with a really good story. Can’t really retake the gmat because I don’t have time off from work. Was thinking round-1 would be best since they can allow a few bad stats.

UVA Darden or Georgetown McDonough part-time for a B4 consultant targeting FAANG, but still wanting MBB as a potential option?

UVA Pros: Higher ranking, great professors, and a tight knit community

Georgetown Pros: More established part-time program, campus for out of class collab, focus on collab not competition, feels like a good fit especially with its diversity, opportunity to have classes with full time students, lecture+case+experiential learning, and more electives to choose from
