If anyone has made this transition could they maybe share some insight into what the process was like relative to the standard IB -> PE recruiting path? Specifically, do most people recruit first or second year, would a banking internship right before you start significantly help your odds or potentially make you look like too much of a robot/tryhard, what tended to differentiate the BAs/ACs who were successful, etc. Any relevant insight would be much appreciated since there isn't much about this specific transition on any of these boards.

Are you trolling or would you like to offer insight haha. I specified McK and Bain since they're the biggest players in the space and I've heard place the best.
