While I've got you guys, what are some super interesting or awesome jobs people have taken (and I don't mean MBB)?

teleste - thank you again for a very detailed response! Would you say that most people seeking FT consulting offers received them? I've gone over the employment reports before and they look fine. I just wonder how many had to settle for a plan b etc. I have not seen that pug, but its very cute! :lol: The world famous dougthepug resides in Nashville as well. Perhaps mine will meet both :P


hey, recent grad here (i try to visit the page everyone once in a while). I went to Owen for consulting, interned in consulting, and joined FT. Without question, if you want to go into consulting, there will be a role for you. That being said, if you want to work for McKinsey (and many prospectives seem to think they do), Owen is not the place. We place strongly into everything outside of MBB, although we've sent at least 1 person to a MBB over the past 4 consecutive years (and possibly more). Culture-wise, the kind of student who chooses Owen isn't really pining for McK anyway.


Thanks for chiming in. Can you expand on the bolded? Are there any more boutique consulting firms that do slightly different work, or with some social enterprise elements, or with better work-life balance, etc. that Owen places into?


I'd take what I'm about to say with a grain of salt, but I think some schools just attract people who want a certain career that may not have to be MBBor GS/MS/JPM. I interviewed at UT recently and the 2nd year told me that most folks who want to do banking end up doing energy i-banking in Houston...and that McCombs isn't really the best if you're trying to land in NYC. Sort of shows in their employement reports...other schools the top placement for finance may be northeast, but at UT, it's slim with most staying in Texas. UT also seems strong on tech and finance is actually 3rd most common whereas in most others I've looked at finance is #2 (all after consulting, which seems to be what most people doing MBA get).

Hmm- cool jobs people have gotten.

Here are a bunch of ones I think were interesting:
Tech- Google, Uber, Tesla (i consider it more tech than automotive)
Health Care- Amgen, Genentech, HCA
Brand- General Mills, P&G, Frito
Finance- Bain's PE group
HR- Disney, Microsoft
Sports- NFL long snapper (that one automatically wins...)

I just received an email invite to Welcome Weekend (and it says "congrats on your admission"), but no official call or email from an adcom member yet. Anyone else get this?

I did too and hadn't been notified of admission beforehand. I sent an email to clarify but before getting a response back (still waiting), my admissions portal was updated, so check there! Said more information will be coming via mail in the coming days/weeks.

Congratulations to all of you! It is even greater that any of you could attend this Welcome Weekend. Nearly impossible for an international applicant like me

Did anyone's letter say they have an acceptance that is conditional? A bit worried about that!

Congrats to all R2 admits!! Per our forum stats 20 applicants have been accepted in R2 so far. Decision deadline is on tomorrow. Can we expect any admit calls tomorrow or just ding /waitlist emails?

After prowling last year's forum, it looks like they were sending out acceptances (with scholarship $) on the deadline date up until the late afternoon. If they follow the same trend this year, then we can stay hopeful!

I'd be very surprised if I received anything other than waitlist / ding. Seems to be the round 2 trend this year

atl12688 where do you think you went wrong on your apps? Your hard stats are good. IMO your gpa/gmat should not have precluded you from any of the programs you applied to. It boils down to work experience, extra curricular activities, essays and interviews. Hopefully you hear back with good news tomorrow from Owen. Good luck!!
