I'm new to this forum, but want to place a question to the group. I've been working for an industry specific structured finance group (also some sponsor deals) withinCorporate Banking for about three years. I came out undergraduate school when 9/11 happened and it took nearly 9 months to land a job as I was living in Denver (1st job was Private Banking). This means I will graduate from business school at 30.
So, I've just been accepted to Washington University's (where my family lives and are alums) 2-year MBA program and am waiting to hear back from Northwestern and Cal-Berkeley. If I don't get into Kellogg or Haas, but go to Wash-U, what are my prospects for getting into a top-tiergroup? I like Wells, but I want to be with a company that handles more of the origination and arranging than we do (WFB is mostly a participant).
Any experience or advice helps?
