Would I make the wrong impression if I wore these...Nobody cares, really. 99% of people won't even notice the logo. 1 year 2 months
College Advice NeededWow, engineering is so good for consulting, there must be mechanical engineering courses at MBA programs and within MBB training programs. Oh wait, there aren't any. I mean seriously I'm not saying STEMs are bad for MBB, they're just not as good as business degrees. Deal with it. I'm a business... 1 year 3 months
College Advice NeededI'm an MBB consultant myself, so I kind of know what I'm talking about.

Not to say that MBB made a huge mistake here be it due to technology or someone's decision. 1 year 7 months
How do I get into Harvard MBA in two years with...Solid schools, international experience, McKinsey in your resume. It's like 75+% I guess. You're gonna have a lot more information from your colleagues and special trainings at the Firm than here though. 1 year 9 months
Unconventional background - any shot at...I think you do have a shot. 1 year 9 months
Why does everyone want to do strategy consulting?Answering OP's question about if IT and strategy are thought of differently inside McKinsey. McKinsey has so called BTO (business technology) practice. Even inside McKinsey BTO guys are sometimes (OK, rarely) referred to as people doing some boring back-office BS without proper exit opps. I don't... 1 year 10 months
