Why is your company choosing to use consultants instead of doing the project in-house? Would love to hear your insight, this stuff is interesting to me

Capacity and lack of internal expertise usually


1) Recognize any slides or names from Deloitte? 2) Congrats on the new role! What's your title?

Anyone else buy a lottery ticket today and already have your first purchase planned?


Can you still realistically get into PE from a MBB entry level position if you had consulting experience at another firm prior to that? Or are you seen as a “less than” candidate relative to peers who got into MBB straight from undergrad and as a result, ignored by PE firms? I’m aware that anyone theoretically has a chance but I didn’t know if having prior non-MBB consulting experience was a red flag for PE firms.


Is there typically a grace period to get billable requirements met when starting at a new firm? I started the first week of May. I'm about 90 hours short of a 170 requirement for the month. I have work, but it's big file review type stuff that takes a lot of actual time. Should I be sending out resumes, or killing myself to get these hours in by the 31st? I'm not a new lawyer, but am new to this practice area. They poached me from my last firm.


What motivates you? I’ll start: I never want to be poor again.
