So here is my situation:
Econ major at a borderline target school (top 15 US News), great gpa (3.98) but no business experience on the resume. Looking for summer internships. Got an offer at a top economic consulting firm and am in the final round of at one ofand a boutique in DC. Didn't even get first round at other 2 of MBB or even at . I think this is due to my lack business experience, not sure what else it could be.
1) If MBB doesn't work out, will an summer at an econ consulting firm be enough to get interviews for full-time MBB?
2) Will going full-time into economic consulting then getting a MBA at a top school be enough to get interviews/consideration from MBB after b-school?
3) Finally, at econ consulting firms, is it possible to get MBA and come back, or do they push you towards PHD if you want to come back?
Also looking for any advice on what I can to prep for aeither MBB or economic consulting.
