Ernst and Young Risk Advisory Position vs Financial Analyst at JPM
Due to some changes, I have to ask this question again...
Which position better helps for a top MBA schools?
- Risk advisory position at E&Y
- Middle-office financial analyst position at JPMorgan in a non-NYC location
Are neither of these good positions? You can tell me that too I guess...

As Certified WSO user @djfiii" says, "Any of these options will get you into Top 15, exclusive of maybe the top 5-7 where it might be more hit or miss (but still possible for those).
- Deloitte is more prestigious than all of the others when it comes to strategy consulting
- For everything else, Deloitte and PwC are even, and they have tiny edge on EY, which has a tiny edge on KPMG
- I would pick the one where you liked the people the best
Certified Consulting Professional @lifeofpurpose" reminds applicants that it's important to know exactly which group and role you are applying for. You need to understand what that group does in order to interview well and to understand what your career path could look like.
I am a manager at E&Y. For which division is the position?, IT risk is called ITRA, i dont think you meant that division. I work at Risk, FSO (advisory) and it has nothing to do with IT. It is at a much higher level, we talking about capital management, risk models, regulation, etc. Having said that, you really should know the exact team you getting in and the partner. The quality of the work will depend on your manager, or the partner in case you are in a pool for various managers.

My undergrad GPA is a 3.8 and I can get a 750 on the GMAT - so those aren't issues for me (I got a 700 as an 18 year old).
I would ideally like to get into a corporate finance or strategy position at a big company or else a consulting position at MBB - I know they're very different but I want to keep my options open.
