Is anyone here able to shed some more light on what the consulting recruiting is like at McCombs?

I know that Big Four (Deloitte S&O especially) and Tier Two have a huge presence here, as they do at many of the Top-20 schools, and I've been told my several that BB, but not M, recruit regularly on campus. I'm curious as to why McK is the only one of the three that doesn't bother coming to campus even though McCombs will usually send a handful of MBAs there every year. Can someone speak to why this might be the case?

Also, if you're good enough to get MBB from a higher-ranked program such as Kellogg or Ross, would you be able to get it from McCombs as well?

Hey! Klaud45 There was a Consulting@McCombs webinar hosted earlier this week.
From what I remember, MBB does recruit from McCombs. Try accessing the recording here: https://register.gotowebinar.com/record ... 2666420225 (you'll have to enter your name and email address)

Kellogg is a top 5 program and probably places more students into MBB than any other school. If that's your only goal and you can get in, you should obviously go there. Michigan, too, is slightly more prestigious than Texas just based on rankings. MBB care a lot about educational pedigree, which is what allows them to distinguish themselves to justify a higher bill rate, because realistically there's not more value can they add over the next best consulting firm on a given engagement. You see the same thing in finance with Blackstone/KKR only hiring people from Harvard and Wharton.

Thanks! You talk a lot about pedigree/prestige regarding MBB's business model, and it makes a ton of sense. Do you get the sense that the case might be somewhat different in the Texas offices since businesses in the state will be littered with UT alumni, whether they went their for their MBAs or undergrad?
