I think these days its going to be looked at in a very positive light. Lots of people returned to their former employers for the summer and a pretty hefty number of grads headed back too. While its not something many schools talk about, employability is something they care about. So knowing you pretty much can walk back into a job thats going to help your cause.
I would suggest you research sponsorship. Some companies dont have dedicated programs like consulting companies but are willing to do one off sponsorships for certain schools. They may not want to sponsor a local no-name program but if you are heading to a top 5 school it might be possible depending on the company...and definitely is worth looking into.
Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.
