Advice for anyone attending IU Kelley

Hi I will be attending IU Kelley in the Fall as a direct admit for undergrad and I'm wondering if you were in my shoes what would you do to best maximize your chances at landing a FO IB/Consulting job while making sure to have an enjoyable experience. I will add that I know Kelley has some sort of a meme reputation on WSO but I'm extremely proud of myself for getting in and out all my choices it was the best by far not to mention I also did not have to break that bank. Anyone who went to Kelley or feels like they have some relevant information to help prepare an incoming freshman interested in high finance please share your thoughts.

IB and Consulting are very different things. You should figure out why you want to go into IB and/or consulting first, before you start preparing blindly for a career. 

Feel free to message me with concrete questions. I went to Kelley, went into IB and then transitioned to consulting.

Hi thanks for comment I understand that both IB and Consulting are very different those are just my top careers of choice. Between the two I'm most interested in consulting if you could give me some insight on the path you'd recommend in terms of workshops, clubs, frats, etc lmk through PM. Thanks
