I'm a freshman here at U of I and I am doing pretty well in my classes (gpa 3.95) so far. I'm looking to transfer into Northwestern or some other schools that recruit heavily for consulting.
Personally, I have decided to go into consulting because it will def give me more exposure to a wide variety of industries. I want to use this experience and go down the path of an entrepreneur. Right now, I have my own Web design company and its doin pretty well. I enjoy entrepreneurship a lot (I've also entered in a a few business plan competitions) and I can see myself doing that later on.
Anyways, one of my questions is whether I should transfer or not?
Do elite consulting firms compare you amongst others from ur school or is everybody after the inital screen viewed the same?
Last year, only two kids managed to get into bain and company. I feel that here at U of I I can def excel in finance and other areas but chances are slim
At NU, however, competition is fierce and I really want to get into the undergrad kellogg certificate program
Also, do any of you recommend any other schools to transfer to.
