engg majors?Is it true that if you have a decent gpa in a major like engineering, applied math, or some sort of related field, then that's looked upon better than a good gpa in a history type thing?

Question about traveling in consultingOne of the most significant negatives about consulting is the crapload of traveling right? I was wondering, if a project is 2-3 months on an off-site, when you're there, do most firms "force" you to fly back home every weekend? Cuz if you just fly somewhere and stay there for the duration of the pro...
