Hi Everyone,

I'm new posting on GMAT Club even though I've been reading it for months :) I am 99% attending McCombs with a full Consortium Fellowship. Does anyone have information about McCombs' record for Consulting placement and with which firms? This morning I spoke with an independent admissions consultant who completely terrified me about my future Consulting prospects by not going to a top 5 b-school. Any info would be most helpful. Thanks!

PS - Looking forward to meeting you at Preview Weekend! I'll be at the Days Inn if anyone wants to split a super-cheap room .75 miles from campus :)

What are the guys wearing for the preview weekend events on fri/sat? The website says business casual, but that really depends on what your definition of busn casual is. Thoughts?

Hello Merkin,

I need some help understanding my chances of career switch from IT Consulting to Corporte finance(non I-Banking) with Mccombs. PLease consider that I am an international student. I will be fine with Financial consulting firms too.

Hi Rafell,
Try sending Merkin a pm. He’ll get an email and likely respond.

As far as corporate finance is concerned:

I am a first year at UT who is also doing a career switch into corporate finance (I’ve worked in operations). I was a bit surprised by the number of companies I was able to interview on campus with. Being an international makes the road a little rougher, but I remember many of the hi-tech firms do sponsor. The companies I interviewed with seemed receptive to career switchers and many of the folks I know who interviewed don’t have finance backgrounds.

I think the key to interviewing is to get a good grasp of the basics during the first semester and keep refreshed over the long break. Most of the corp fin interviews took place the week we got back to class. The recruiters will ask technical questions that are difficult to answer so early in the first elective semester; especially coming from a non-finance background. There are many resources and guides to help prepare.

Feel free to pm me if you have any company specific questions.

Hope everyone makes its out to preview weekend! :-D

Preview Weekend was a lot of fun. I met some really cool people. Should be a good class.

Can someone tell me how to find potential roomates? I was admitted after the admit weekend and the admitted students website doesn't seem overly helpful.

Get on the facebook page for admitted students and people on there should be people on there looking for roommates or you can post a message

I also felt 50/50 after my interview. In fact, I remember telling my wife exactly that. I remember feeling that I didn't do anything to lead me to think that if I don't get in it will be because of my interview, but I also am not sure if it made a big difference.

Anyway, good luck. I ended up getting admitted (DFW program).

Admitted yesterday! Applied April 1, Interviewed May 18, Accepted May 20!

@Bullman20...guess we both had the same experience! Gotta love the 50-50 interview!

Waitlisted at Tuck and Stern...think I'm holding out for Tuck but really really draw to the warm weather and city life at Austin. Anyone have any thoughts?

So glad to FINALLY belong to an ACCEPTED blog!

Congratulations. As far as Tuck they are over enrolled so odds are extremely slim. Don't know about NYU. Also depends on goals but McCombs is a great school. Regardless, you should be fine.
