McKinsey -> PEI have post-MBA offers at McKinsey and Bain. I know Bain is known for its high placement into PE, due its well-regarded Private Equity Group (PEG), but what about McKinsey? Can anyone speak to its PE exit ops? 8 2 years 5 months

MBB Offer to Hire YieldsDoes anyone have any insight into what kind of yields each of the MBB sees on its offers? For example, if a Top 5 MBA program, typically places 20 interns at McKinsey, how many offers did McKinsey have to give to yield those 20 acceptances? 25 for an 80% yield? 21 for a yield of virtually 100... 1 3 years 2 months

Which firm has better exit opportunities? I am...Which firm has better exit opportunities? I am surprised to see so much McKinsey love on here. Typical WSO prestige whoring I suppose. I'm at a top 5 MBA, and there aren't many fans of McKinsey around here. I see more love for BCG and Bain (based on culture and people mostly). 138 1 year 4 months

I imagine they'll ask a lot about DFAs overarching market efficiency strategy and how they go about overweighting the stocks based on Fama's model. Just a guess though because I never interviewed with them. [/quote] No Fama... 8 1 year 6 months

Not sure how having an MBA affects it, but be prepared to have kids 2-3 years out of undergrad with no advanced degree at your level. Most Managers make between 95-115K, so I'd doubt they'd pay any Senior Associate much... 12 1 year 7 months
Similar background to OP and at a Top 5 MBA...Similar background to OP and at a Top 5 MBA program now, and I'd say to be competitive at any top 10 program, you'll have to be in the top quartile of its class on the GMAT. For M7, that means around a 750. I'd also say that showing a history of outstanding performance will also be essential - i.... 47 2 years 2 weeks

In those cases, the drug testing policy is applied uniformly across the organization mostly because targeting a subset of employees would appear unfair - even said target has an established propensity... 8 2 years 3 months
