How’s Roland Berger as a brand where you’re from? Sounds like rest of your credentials are great, so average gmat (~730) should do the job

You’re right—why group them? ATK is clearly better.

noticing title inflation with “AVP” seeming like the new standard at some firms for 3yoe or out of MBA. I’m at a firm where that definitely isn’t the case and youd make avp equivalent at 5yoe if you’re a TOP performer. If I decide to make a move in the future, will me having a lower title now hurt me in getting interviews or placing into correct title? To clarify current compensation isn’t an issue but I think associate at my firm would make more than associate at firm with said title inflation…
