I heard a rumor that some partners at MBB firms (and maybe other consulting firms, too?) can hold a plane. Is there any truth to this? I know our partners’ connections are strong, but that is one crazy ask….
For people who have switched from Big4/Tier 2 consulting firms to MBB, what's the reason you made that switch? Also, how are you finding consulting at MBB better than your earlier consulting gigs? What according to you, is the selling point for the tier 1 consulting firms?
for those of you who have gotten multiple offers from MBB, which did you choose and why? Looking back would you have done the same

How does EYs senior manager translate into a MBB model? Working alongside an EY SM who thinks they’re a junior/associate partner but whose responsibilities seem to match an EM. Also is it normal for Big 4s to ignore juniors? This SM refuses to listen to anything I say and gets annoyed anytime I speak in a meeting or when I said I was talking to the partner directly - whereas my McK team proactively encourages me too.
Is it just me but I think ex-[MBB] makes sense and even ex-Deloitte or any of the bigger prominent firms because it actually speaks to an active Alumni group or a profession with a broad skillset. But ex-[Bank] looks a bit strange. Please educate me! Am I being a snob?
I’m an incoming AC1 at Bain and I have spent the summer studying a bit for the GMAT since we had a stipend. I took it with no practice and received a 640. After studying on an off for a couple of months I received a 690. I’m likely going to cancel the score since I realize it isn’t enough for M7. To provide some more insight on my profile. I graduated undergrad from UofM BBA Magna Cum Laude, have interned in Big 4 consulting, IB, and VC, and I’m an Asian-American. What should I do?
