Do I Stand Any Chance at McKinsey? [FT Analyst] [#permalink] New post 09 Sep 2012, 20:49
Hello everybody,

I have a somewhat unique opportunity in that I have been accepted to HBS' 2+2 program, meaning I have been accepted into HBS even though I have yet to graduate from my undergrad institute. I have a 700+ GMAT and 3.7+ GPA in a STEM field and currently work for a top ten fortune 500 company.

BUT..

I come from a non-target school and have no connections at MBB.

Do you guys think I have a chance to land an interview at MBB? Any tips for my specific situation? Should I really leverage the fact that I have already gotten into HBS? How can I get interest from the big three if I am from a small non-target school?

Congratulations on your HBS admission.

You should definitely leverage the fact that you got into McKinsey. Package properly and sell what you have. They will love it.

We have recently seen a student exactly in your situation. He got into HBS 2+2 program, and he now works at McKinsey. So, the summary is it is possible. Good luck!

Awesome, thanks for your input. I'm definitely going to try to make a run at it.
