Should I be aiming m7 with 4 yoe (1 as an internal consultant for a small company and 3 at a b4), 760 gmat, 3.3 engineering UG from a top 10 engineering program (3.5 engineering gpa), not a ton of ECs and ORM? Planning on applying this year round 2 but not sure if I’m more in the m7 or t15 range.

Shoot for M7

like

This is a super similar profile to mine when I applied. I went to an M7

like

Sure

760 and an engineering 3.3 should be able to get you an admit somewhere in the M7, but it also comes down to the rest of your app. I think you’re straddling the M7/T15 line. I would apply to some schools in both, kind of depends what you want to do post MBA as well.

Thanks again for the help and insight!

I bill as much (generally more) than other associates, so why does it matter if I start at 9 and work late?? I’m finding it hard to go back to the arbitrary-feeling 8am office start when I know I’m not going to be productive.

Second - is there a way I could move my current 401K to another (precious) provider?
