Ask Me Anything: I went from a non-target to McKinsey, MIT Sloan and BCG

Hey guys,

An undergraduate I am mentoring sent me a link to an AMA from this site from someone in business school. I was reminded that I was using this site 9 years ago in 2006. Back then I still hadn't accomplished much. Through focus. belief in myself and failing MANY times, I've built the career of my dreams. I am now at the point where I have amazing options and the hardest part is determining where and how to spend my time to stay focused on my life goals in the future. Back as a senior in college, I applied to over 100 consulting firms and ultimately got rejected from every single one. I wish I knew what I know now. I really had no chance.

Ultimately, through trial and error, I landed a job at McKinsey & Company. This opened up so many doors and really has shaped my career.

I'd love to take questions and answer them to help others. What do you have for me?

Mod Note (Andy) - this AMA originally went up last December but @consultantguy12 " wrote and said he could still answer questions
