Asian, 740, 3.9, Ivy undergrad. I think what differentiated me was starting 2 non-profits with 4 chapters each across the US. It’s your extra-curriculars that’ll make you stand out cause half of my MBB start class was Asian. Got into both H/S, btw. Was pretty confident I would.

For H/S, you need above average stats (750+ and 3.8+) and need to differentiate yourself from your MBB peers. MBB hires undergrads with 3.9+ GPAs and very high SAT scores. So you can extrapolate from there as to what your competition will look like.

GSB 2018 770 GMAT, 4.0 undergrad, 3.5 grad (both for CS from target schools). FAANG internships, volunteering, NGOs and great recommendations. ORM with a HEAVY focus on “O”.

Haha welp okay so now what should us plebs that don’t have people like that do.... also do you know if the firm offers resources for apps? I know there’s like a million people here who went to HSW but I joined pretty recently so can’t really take advantage of that yet :/

I'm not a part of mbb or anything, but you guys dominate H/S. Just get a high gmat score, and killer reccomendations.

3.8 / 770 and rejected from both. It’s about your essays.

Does the location of your MBA program limit which office you can recruit too? I want to work at MBB in NYC and have an admit to Stern and Ross however Ross is providing an 80k scholarship. I’d like to take this scholarship but I really have a desire to be in NYC post mba.

Feeling super discouraged. I’m pretty average IQ wise, but I’ve always been able to get ahead by working harder/longer than others. (e.g. I raised my ACT score for 29 to 35 by taking 30+ practice tests, and got into MBB on my second try by doing 50+ mock interviews.) But now that I’m at MBB I feel like working hard isn’t enough. I feel like to succeed here you have to be lightning fast at picking stuff up and executing tasks, and that’s just not me.

I don't know jack shit, and will completely understand if my clients/senior peers don't give me any respect at all. Thank you covid and the great resignation for this wonderous and hilarious opportunity.

Started at Slalom a few months ago after multiple big 4 stops. Best decision I’ve ever made for my career. If you’re current B4 and want to learn more, let me know. They’re building something truly great though and happy to be a part of it. Edit (some are asking but I’ll reply in comments or DM) 1) tremendous WLB and people centric approach - people centric is not lip service. 2) pay is more than competitive and growth has been great - 3) you make a real impact on clients.
