Burnt out analyst looking to break into MBB

To provide some context, non-target with 2 years of ABL lending (@ top BB) experience and currently in a loan syndication (debt capital markets/ lev fin) role @ a top BB. I have been so burnt out from my work during COVID, all the junior guys have quit and the team is always hiring given how short staff. Being promoted to associate next year after bonus. I don't care about taking a pay cut to start as a 1st year BA or AC at a MBB. Do I have a chance to be interviewed at a MBB? Am I too late or too senior? Don't have the money to do B-school.

Yes but I'd do it sooner than later. Ask any friends from school if they can refer you. Good luck!

Kinda funny you're saying you're burnt out and wanting to move to MBB. Seems like the wrong move...
