Seeking more info on management consulting [#permalink]

I'm relatively uneducated on the management consulting industry yet believe my strengths and professional experience may be a good fit for pursuing it after b-school. In order to craft more realistic (and well thought out) essays regarding career goals, etc., I am seeking more detailed information on the industry.

Apart from Wikipedia and the websites of the Big 3, can anyone chime in or direct me to any good online sources or books that go into more detail on MC, i.e. what are some key traits of a successful MC? What are the chances of landing an Associate position at an international location as opposed to domestic (US)? What are the day-to-day activities of an MC Associate (some of this I've read on McK's site)?

Any more information would be much appreciated, thanks!

Well, the best place for this is going to be in the B-School Life forum, but I will link a couple threads I found especially helpful.

Big-time thanks for Rhyme (and I think Pelihu has some great posts in there too) for putting these together, I take no credit for them!

On recruiting - 108-t63411

On the business as a whole - 108-t43294

You should be able to find some really good insight in these multi-page threads.
