Consulting Offer - Should I take it up? [#permalink]
12 Feb 2012, 05:28
I posted this topic since it is a weird situation I have been facing which I am sure some of us may have encountered and needed advice on how to proceed on this.
I am applying to Top US B-schools and am in the process of interviewing with a couple of them (some are already done). Now I have got this unique job opportunity, from one of the top 10 consulting firms with much better pay and a promotion. I do not want to compromise on the B-Schools I apply to and would want to re-apply if wait-listed/rejected.
However, I am not sure how the schools would take a job change at this point of time? Would they hold it against me?
I am already into a management consulting profile, however, its a local firm and getting a top 10 offer is a rare opportunity, not to mention it will definitely increase my chances of landing a job post MBA. Also, in case I am rejected this year (hope not, but considering it as a matter of fact, since I am an international and rejection rates are high), I may miss out on a year of splendid work opportunity and $$.
Would really appreciate your help on this. Especially those who have encountered such situations while evaluating applications or as prospective students.

Not sure if you have already made your decision, but I would definitely go with the job offer for now. Business schools are not going anywhere and you can still apply next year if you don't love your job, but top-10 job offers with great$$ don't come around easily (even with an MBA).
