I went to college at a school ranked in the 20s with a minor in business and I will be finishing medical school in 2012 at a school ranked in the 10s. GPA is 3.9 in college, and my grades are above average in medical school.
1. how competitive am I for a job at a consulting firm or Ibanking firm as an associate if I wish to work right after my MD degree?
- Assuming I get hired, will I be at a disadvantage in moving up because I have almost no business background compared to my colleagues who likely had analyst-->MBA backgrounds?
- Just how hard is it to move up in consulting/ibanking from an associate? Is it 80% move up...50%...20%?
- Money wise (just talking about money, not about lifestyle or interest), will it be worth it? I can realistically make about $500k as a doc but that will not begin until 5 years post medical school, in the meantime I make $50k.
