I'm about to start my last year of law school and have a bit of a dilemma. I spent the summer interning at one of the top corporate law firms in the country and have an offer to return as a permanent associate after graduation. Unfortunately, I'm a little disenchanted with law and am considering going into a different field.
Given my credentials (3.8 GPA at a top law school, good work experience, decent undergrad grades/scores), if I spent a few hours poring over case studies and how to nail consulting interviews, do I have any shot at the McKinsey/Bain/BCGs of the world at a non-entry level position? Will my lack of experience or knowledge in the field be too large a barrier, or can that be picked up/faked until it's learned?
Thanks for any insight.
