Appropriate suits for consultants?I'm trying to decide between three different coloured suits. I currently only have a charcoal one and I'd like to expand the collection to three (over the course of a few months) but I'm wondering which one would be the next safest option to choose for the time being.

Apartment hunting AFTER you've started work?Living in/near downtown in my city = $1200-1500/mo for a 1BR apt. I'm thinking around $700-900/mo for a 2BR if I find a roommate. I can't see myself paying up to $1500/mo for a place I might only be able to enjoy on the weekends, so I'll probably go with the latter. I'm basically wondering if I... 2 years 1 month

Canadian undergrad helpIvey tuition doesn't cost 80k. Their placement is great, but I've seen a lot of people not make the most of their recruiting options (for whatever reason) and be stuck with a job that you could get going to any other school.

Canadian undergrad helpI think the answer you'll get most often here is that you'll have to network. It's a shame that Ivey manages to keep a tight grip on OCR because it basically rules out everyone else from being looked at - even if you're in a difficult econ program. I'm not sure if the econ program has their own... 2 years 2 months
reward pointsIt seems like the consensus everywhere is that Starwood tops all. In second place, it looks like it's a toss up between Hilton Honors and Marriott.

reward pointsIs it a good idea to sign up for rewards programs prior to starting a consulting gig or does it not matter? I know you can claim your missing nights afterwards but I'm not sure if you're required to have been a member during the nights you're trying to claim. That, and it seems like a hassle. 2 years 3 months
M/B/B Consultant Answering Your QuestionsFair enough. I expected it to be doable, I just didn't know how much so. I would be in the other boat - at a lower tiered firm but thinking of lateraling in the future. Not necessarily to MBB, although that would be preferred, but I'd be satisfied with Deloitte/LEK/Booz. 2 years 4 months
M/B/B Consultant Answering Your Questions[quote=PrivateEmpire][quote=Western]This is great - thanks. My Q is, which of these, if any, would give someone the best chance at getting into MBB (with only an undergrad degree) 1) Someone with 1-2 years experience at firm within the same tier as ACN/IBM/PwC who wants to lateral 2) or... 2 years 4 months
