Will taking a Consulting Internship with Crowe hurt my chances of receiving an MBB of Big 4 offer? Should I instead be looking at a finance or tech internship next summer?

My best friend went Crowe her junior year and re recruited to land a FT offer at Bain, so it’s not impossible by any means.

You would be surprised that MBB doesn’t care about work experience for students. I see a lot of students without any internships getting into MBB full time after graduating. This suggests they place heavier emphasis on possibly CGPA and leadership
