Just want to say it’s different for everyone - I decided to study/take the exam after graduation and before my start date (roughly 3 months) and it was definitely a tough process for me considering I had no experience.

It's been a challenging year for me, including a rejection from GSAP. This week, I got into my top choice MBA program - and an M7 to boot! Just goes to show that sometimes Deloitte's decisions can be misaligned to the greater world. I hope that Deloitte gives me the chance to be a good brand ambassador - but at the point, it's up to the firm if I even consider coming back :)
