“Trashy” state school... most people go to state schools cause they can’t afford your preppy private schools. Honestly check yourself

Appreciate you trying to defend OP, but think you’re defending the wrong type of person

Honestly ty, I think the other comments are overreacting. You obviously meant that profiles that aren’t crazy amazing can also get into MBB and was trying to give us hope, and didn’t mean to insult your friends stats

FYI OP - MBB doesn’t differentiate between “strategy” and “implementation” for consulting track

Were they “front office” roles at MBB and MS? My understanding is that you can get into top firms from non top MBA programs, but they will be subpar positions (HR, compliance, etc).

Fish - I saw couple posts here like “HSW do not get MBB interview” so I just want to give out some hope here. I don’t mean state school is bad or so...

MS IBD and MBB summer associate ( I would assume it is not implementation)

Implementation associate is the same thing as generalist / integrative.

Mbb which level and was it for their management consulting branch?

Thanks! Then it makes sense

OP don’t worry about the state school posts, just people over reacting and needing something to feel offended about. Thanks for sharing, gives me hope.

Fellow 🐠 in MBB - there is a belief in a few consultants that being a part of MBB is the main goal at any cost. Being on the inside and having seen, through this application or your networks, what other firms do, do you think this belief is healthy? Would you consider your work to be just as enjoyable at another firm? If not, where do you think other firms fall shy of the MBB.

I watched an interview with a psychologist who explained Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and realized this describes my ex to a T. Delusions of grandeur, prone to fits of rage, vain, jealous, thinks everyone is beneath him, entitled. I tried to love him even harder and accommodated every whim to try and make it work. And basically the doctor said that Narcissists don’t change. I’m sad that I wasted 3 years of my life but glad that I’m out. Anyone else healing from dating a Narcissist?

Baby is almost 6mo and has a flat spot on the back of his head (right side). The pediatrician referred us to a physical therapist who suggested exercises that have him look the opposite way of his flat spot. They said PT is just as effective as a helmet if done early. But we put him in daycare during the day and I don’t know for sure if he’s getting a proper amount of “baby exercise”. Anyone ever been in a similar position? I wanted to avoid a helmet but thinking it may be best.

Need ethics/moral help from my fellow 🐟 I got laid off from ACN earlier this year. I accepted an offer and started at a boutique consulting firm exactly one month ago today. This morning, I got an email from Deloitte recruiting for the same position I’m in now, which is where I want to develop my career. Part of me wants a break from the big consulting firms, but at the same time, going to a Big 4 would feel more at home to me. Is it worth entertaining the offer, or should I just stay away?
