If you're recruiting for internships and secure one let me offer that you can take nothing for granted. I got demolished during my MBB internship and was way too late in asking for help because I didn't know how to and everyone acted like an internship was a de facto full time offer.

OP we have non grade disclosure so can't reveal grades. Where you headed ?

MBB offer summer workshops and networking events pre MBA. Attend these and don't act like a jackass.

Join the student body and any public speaking extra curriculars you can. Network as much as possible, whenever and wherever.

Where are you going

Georgetown, evening program so can't do internships

They all recruit there so I'm hoping for the best

Current TC is on the high end in consulting but have had similar offers.
