T3 Law School to Consulting?

Hi all,

I'm currently a 2nd year student at a top 3 law school (Harvard, Yale, Stanford). I'll be spending my summer as a summer associate at a top-5 NYC law firm (if that ever happens with the current craze), but am looking into MBB recruiting on the final year of my law school just in case biglaw is not exactly my appetite. In the end, I do want to continue working in client-service, whether it be consulting or at a law firm.

I have a 3.94 GPA from my undergrad business program, 770 GMAT, and 171 LSAT. Used to work for a year in tech consulting (not strategy) in a Big 4 firm's NYC office, as well as 2 years in the foreign military. I had some experience doing case interviews with MBB in my undergrad days but did not pass the final round. I also got accepted to my school's JD/MBA program on the first year of my law school but decided not to pursue (too broke).

Do I stand a chance? Should I try? Would appreciate all of your input.

Much thanks in advance. Stay safe and healthy!

I'm at MBB, and I'd interview you. You're clearly very impressive. We'll have reps on campus in the fall, so just start networking with some folks in August, practice some cases, and give it a shot!
