Nontraditional Background to PE
I'm headed to one of HSW this fall and coming from a nontraditional background (military, sports, arts, etc.). I studied math at one of HYPSM in undergrad, for whatever that's worth in this process.
I managed to pick up a pre-MBA internship this summer at a LMM fund. I know how PE recruiting, even from HSW, is an uphill battle--but especially so without traditional PE experience.
Will my summer internship give me enough to have a fighting chance in recruiting? I'd be targeting MM funds, as it's pretty clear to me that MFs are out of the question.
Any advice on how to go about this would be much appreciated!
