I am grappling with the decision of graduating a year early, and therefore am trying to figure out where I stand. Whether I should jump into the job market, delay by double majoring in Finance, or maybe quickly study for the GMAT and enter into a Masters in Finance program.
I realize I come from a non-target and I have little connections to the consulting business (so really no special in). I'm fairly confident my rank is number one in the Economics program at ASU, and possibly in my entire class. I didn't articulate this in my resume because ASU will not confirm it officially other than hinting that i'm the top. On the basis of my resume, do I stand a decent chance/will I get an interview? I'm told that once you get to the interviewing stage, if you can do the cases you stand a chance. Obviously i'd like the best (MBB) but I see how that could be difficult from a non-target. If MBB doesn't seem plausible, then what about PwC Consulting/Deloitte? I personally think PwC would be great because they are a fast growing firm that seems to be investing a lot of resources to growing their consulting arm.
Thanks ahead of time!
