Northwestern for Management Consulting

Subscribe

I am a student at Northwestern planning to pursue a career in management consulting.
Although Northwestern is a good school, I get the feeling that it does not have a very strong reputation in the consulting world.
Would I be better off transferring to Columbia, Penn, or UChicago given that I have the necessary scores and ECs to do so?

If you can’t get into consulting at Northwestern, you wouldn’t get into consulting from Harvard. There’s a good 20-25 people going to Chicago office MBBs alone. The only school that outplaces Northwestern in the Chicago offices (the second biggest office in the US for most firms) is Michigan, but that’s mostly due to their size.
