Consulting is a joke
Pay 300+ in tuition for a top target only to make literally 120k all-in(and even less than at lower tier firms), which is literal shit. The work consultants do--making random powerpoints: basically stretching reality with fancy writing and fonts, amid vague requests and vague proposals--is all vapid, glib nonsense that's thrown out the moment the engagement is over. You can literally graduate a no-name state school with a 3.3 gpa in cs and make 200k at minimum in tech while working on some interesting problems.
Yes, there's a real discussion to be had as to whether techfor the average performer. However consulting shouldn't even be sniffing this. It's a joke career.
Edit: This post is targeted for high-achieving college students at top targets, for whom 120k--especially in high COL areas--is quite literally, peanuts. If you are making less than 120k, you have no right to insult me.
