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.
If I’m joining MBB end of Jan, any chance my phone hardware would be the newest iPhone 12? 😅 I’m in NA.
Why is Tier1 MBA mandatory in India to get into consulting at MBB. Any Partner at MBB willing to chat and share wisdom with a non MBA experienced professional aspiring to join the consulting practice. Does MBB considers non MBA industry experts for consulting roles.
Current sophomore, engineering major. Around 3.5 gpa give or take. Have a PwC solutions consulting internship this summer, bridge to bcg program, and interviewing for Bain bel. Dream companies are MBB. Do I have a good shot for junior internships/ Ft role?
Johnson (Full ride) or Stern (no $) or Darden (no $)? Post MBA goal is consulting in NYC (preferably MBB but Tier 2 is fine). Would be taking 130K loan for Stern & Darden. The latter 2 schools seem to have better prestige and recruiting opps but unsure if it’s worth the 130K in the long run.
Deciding between Kearney and L.E.K for a summer associate role, looking at hopefully transitioning to MBB for full time (dream role, though I like both other firms perfectly fine). Between DT at Kearney and LEK generalist which profile lends best to switching up a tier? Kearney L.E.K. Consulting McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
MBB exits after 1 year post undergrad.. high performer but enjoying the work? Want to help grow something??
If goal is MBB would you take Kellogg full price over Ross with 80k scholarship? The debt from Kellogg is extremely terrifying as I would take ~200k in loans
Besides the obvious players (i.e., MBB), who do we consider to be the top healthcare firms out there?
What is an OK GRE if I have a 4.0, work at MBB, female? What’s the number I get if I’d like to get into one M7 (doesn’t need to be HSW)?
Does referral (a random one e.g. from someone at MBB whom you don’t personally know), make a difference in applying for roles with MBB?
New joiner in a few weeks…Does MBB allow expensing for overtime meals when working from home?
Post MBA consultant at MBB. Looking to apply externally but no idea how to structure the consulting part of my resume. Any suggestions / templates?
One year at MBB, need to find an exit soon for personal reasons. I have no other work experience but everyone keeps telling me not to take a lower salary. Is this even possible?
I am finishing MBA from target school+ working FT and applying to MBB as experienced hire upon graduating next year. Good love to connect and receive advice from anyone who went through the transition to MBB as experienced hire

Where is a new build???
But once again not posting
Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?
Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Parents in Consulting. How do you manage consulting hours (50+ hours) with children? What does your schedule look like?
I just accepted an offer at another big4 and I feel so blessed to be making $130k in LOCL as a 23 year old with less than 1.25 YOE. And I find it funny that I'm gonna be "senior" consultant/associate at my age and YOE. 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.
We have officially come full circle
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.
Can you get fired or laid off if you are on a short term disability leave? Does this call for a lawsuit if this happens?
