S2 right now. Planning to leave in spring 2023 and get MBA. If I still perform above average/well up until I leave for school - Could I push to get promoted to manager with the intention of leaving right after? I want to get the official title change as it may help with recruiting while in b school. I also am considering letting my immediate partner know this as soon as I get a high gmat score.

Honestly, there's no reason for your practice to promote to manager if the partner knows you're leaving given promotions are typically tied to budgets. Second, having the manager title on your resume but no actual experience at level will marginally help you in recruiting since you won't be able to answer questions about your people/project manager experience.

Okay thanks! I guess part of me still wants the title since I’ve worked so hard for it.

Despite what G1 said my firm knew perfectly well that I am leaving for an MBA and still promoted me for a post-MBA position 6 months before I left. One thing to keep on mind is that I was sponsored.

Agree. You'd have to play the 'sponsorship but reneg' game.
