I know a couple make it at Insead. But you have to work hard for getting into buy side since one year is not long.

EDNY Attorney Admissions- After submission of documents (Cert of Good Standing, Petition for Attorney Admission and Sponsoring Affidavit), there is a requirement to "Appear on the date of the hearing with the sponsoring attorney". Does anyone know whether the admission hearings are still live at the court? I know many hearings are online (e.g., Zoom) because of Covid-19 concerns. I need to coordinate with sponsoring attorney. Thanks.

Consultant interviewing for a 2 year analyst program at a private investment/private equity firm. Role at first will be split 40-40-20 between Operations, Investor Relations, and Investment Team. Being marketed to be as a "rotation" Good exit? Don't want to take PE for the sake of PE, want it to have legitimately transferable skills in modeling, valuation, investment with MBA almost certain after 2 years. Concerned l'd get "stuck" on portfolio monitoring or cold calling

I was alone in my last project and the client is actively trying to offer me a job (directly under the CFO). I've been working on this project for the past 6 months and I don't like the environment/people. That said, there was a salary reduction at my office and I'm pretty sure MBA sponsorship is not happening. Does this job opportunity improve my chances at HSW? I would totally put up with it if it did. Would this mean my app won't compete against other consultants?(I guess that would be a pro

I actually really dislike it when recruits tell me they're only applying for MBB. It sounds like they think they're too good for any other firm.
