Which big 4 would be better for M&A? I'm interested in eventually attempting a lateral transfer into investment banking. I know it's a long reach but want to have an option that doesn't involve getting an MBA.

Thanks!

Incoming MBA, I have my tuition paid for and rent covered (I will be an RA). So the only thing I need to pay for is food and entertainment. Do you think 20k is enough to last me through the 2 years? I will make a little money interning in the summer, so that would be a safety valve if I blow through the 20k.

Or… should I take a small loan?

I got an offer from Big 4 firm for 85K at senior level. Is that what I should be expecting. Also my current firm keep telling me that the work will be too much and I won’t be able to handle it. I just want to learn and grow and develop. Is the work unreasonable. I don’t mind working 70 hour weeks to get shit done during busy season at all!
