I want to apply for consulting internships in the U.S., preferable NY or Boston, however I will be abroad all year next year in London. I was wondering how applying for internships typically work. I realize most people say that hiring is normally done at schools that are closer to the offices, i.e. Boston office will have Harvard and MIT and NY will have Columbia and NYU, however if I am in London and want to work in NY is there any way of applying to the NY office and standing a chance, or should I just focus on trying for an internship in London.
I am not opposed to working in London, just prefer to intern in the states if it would be possible.
Any help would be appreciated.
