Currently in the military, transitioning to an MBA program next fall and I'm already admitted to Kellogg Round 1. I have significant vacation saved up and will be ending my service around March so will have 5-6 months before starting school.
I know the typical advice is "don't need to do anything, just relax and enjoy yourself." And I'm already planning on doing that, going to be doing a LOT of traveling and awesome stuff I just didn't have the time or ability to do while in the military, but I will also have time to study and prep myself for MBA/recruiting.
I'm currently enrolled in the HBX CORE which I think is going to help as a primer for some of the basic business classes I'll take first quarter. Also looking at pre MBA internships but those seem few and far between and not a high likelihood of working out.
My goal is to crush school AND MBB recruiting once I'm on campus. Not that it's the end of the world if I don't get an MBB offer, but I want to 100% do everything I can to set myself up to get one of those jobs and not ask "what if". I know there's many other great firms that I'd be happy at but from what I understand MBB offers the best long term opportunity.
FWIW I have some weakness in quant as a humanities major, that I'll need to be working on the fundamentals. I got a 45Q on the GMAT so not a total doofus but I know consulting values quant skills. I'm just wondering if diving into case prep is maybe too soon or should I focus on other fundamentals?
Can anyone think of anything else? Anything you wished you'd done? Thanks!
