Hey guys,

I'm heading to bschool in the fall, and spent the last two years in mgt level role at a healthcare start-up that eventually became a GS PIA portfolio company. I did quite a bit of work with the group (though not directly, mainly with our CEO/COO who worked directly with PIA) on closing the funding round / developing our financial statements / turning around business units so we met and exceeded PIA's goals for our company.

Now, that I'm heading to bschool, I'd like to jump the table and join the PIA group. I'm arranging for an informational interview with the MD from the group, whom I've met several times, and was wondering whether it's really realistic for me to even be considered by this group as a potential hire post MBA w/out having had any previous banking experience. I heard these guys hire based off fit, but I'd assume their hires have had banking/finance experience. OR, should I just focus on banking for now, and then consider this group.

Thanks a ton for your help!
