What are your long term goals? IB will set you up for buy-side roles like PE/VC whereas consulting would be better for industry exits. Both are super different paths

How the heck were you able to recruit for IB and MBB? That must have been brutal. Congrats, you have a very nice problem. They’re so different that I’m sure you’re leaning towards one over the other based on what you want to do long term and the type of work you like to do.

Thanks! MBA did banking for summer internship and recruited consulting for FT
