I'm a PE associate (bb bank to large cap pe) who applied to hsw round 1. Looks like w is the only option. What is PE recruiting like at the school for those with prior experience? There's not much info on WSO so posting here. I looked at profiles of people at top mm funds like Madison Dearborn and Berkshire partners. Everyone is from h/s or is a lateral (literally). So do half the funds not even recruit at Wharton? Asking because might make sense for me to just recruit laterally and forgo an MBA in that case. Appreciate any insight.

Thanks in advance.

I'm at a MM PE firm and applied R1. I'm expecting to do my own networking and recruiting. It may be different for mega-funds, but from what I've heard most MM firms do not recruit on campus.

Thanks. I agree that we will have to network on our own. I think the issue i'm grappling with is that there are no Wharton associates at the two I mentioned and several other solid MM funds. Hard to imagine people aren't networking with them already.

Not an expert, but I think there's just soooo few post-MBA PE jobs (particularly large cap) that they are all filled by kids who worked at mega funds in PE prior to MBA and then go to HBS (primarily) or GSB (secondarily). Some big funds also sponsor candidates. It's just an impossibly small sample size.
