Admitted to M7 but GMAT score is almost 20 points lower than the average. Post MBA goal is MBB but open to T2 firms as well. Will this impact my chances of recruiting for MBB given many of my classmates will have higher GMAT scores? Wondering if I should retake...
Thoughts on business planning or sales planning at Facebook. Is this a good path from MBB consulting?
Folks who got into MBB after Indian MBA, how hard is it to get a shortlist during summer and final placements? What kind of profiles make it/don’t make it?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?
What would it take for a company to acquire a big 4 or MBB firm? For example would 50% of voting partners need to agree? Personal curiosity and not related to my employer 👀
Is it any easier to get an offer from MBB as an undergrad intern rather than a full time (out of UG) hire?
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
Any one who has done CSCP certification and can help guide through the exam preparation ?? Does it help when applying to MBB??
What’s Ross’s stereotype? Is it possible to get into MBB or FAANG post graduation? What is the student body like? Is it reputable?
How different is the actual work content at MBB vs. Big 4? I don't enjoy work I am doing right now (PMI/Tech Implementation), but wondering if I should try for MBB before moving to industry.

I'm a career Foreign Service Officer (TS clearance), specialization in nat sec strategy/cooperation, thinking about jumping back into fed contracting/consulting in the next several months. Former BAH manager. Any thoughts on where to start? At mid-30s, I think I'm too old for MBB and am thinking a manager/director role at AFS or a smaller outfit would probably be the easiest transition (BAH pay is too low). Also thinking big tech/blue chip international government affairs might be a possibility.
Who wants help getting into MBB? =)
General management consulting is super interesting to me and I could see myself doing it as a career. My biggest gripe is the WLB at MBB. Would smaller middle market firms offer similarly interesting projects with more reasonable hours?
Have around 2YOE in B4 consulting. Debating whether to apply to Bschool next year or recruit for MBB/T2 strategy consulting. What factors should I be considering? Interested in strategy for the skill set to be more marketable for PE or tech companies

MBB associate with undergrad degree in economics. Loved the degree, though didn’t do much with it outside of class (spent summers on internships, didn’t write a thesis). If I want to do something related to economics, how can I best leverage my current background to do so? Would MS in Econ make more sense than an mba? Maybe MS in stats or data science? Does the MBB background help in any way?
Just wondering how usdc senior consultant salary compares to core senior consultant at Deloitte for advisory department. I've read some negative takes on usdc but wanted to know the magnitude in salaries. Thanks in advance :D
The American TSA line at LGA terminal B is perhaps the worst, even by LGA standards. Wtf happened to the priority line? 20 mins without the line being longer than 7 people.
Anyone got any suggestions on where to look for a summer internship in finance - the wesbites like ratemyplacement show the big companies but there are 100s of applicants and not that many companies offering them. Do smaller companies do them and is it just a matter of speculative applications. Looking Home Counties/London area.

Is there anything you can say if you suspect one of your directs has ADHD (probably undiagnosed)? I don’t mean this with any judgment. I have ADHD and recognize many similarities in their behavior. Their performance has been suffering (a lot), and I’m running out of ways to address the day-to-day issues. It feels like there’s a larger issue at play that I can’t mention.
