I think a lot of people who go to megafunds do 2 years IBD -> 2 years PE -> Top MBA -> Megafund.
How is p/e recruiting at top bschools? I assume there is a lot of competition for these slots. If someone were to go to bschool directly from banking would he be at a significant disadvantage to those who had the extra 2 years of PE? Is it even possible to break in at an associate level?
Since many pre-MBA associate PE firms require 2 and out, what's the point of doing pre-mba PE (with the exception of getting into bschool) if one wants to do post MBA pe?
