This is a total hypothetical but from what I have seen:
The ideal career path on this forum looks to be:
4 years at a top target --> 2 years at GS/MS/JPM ---> 2 years at MegaFund ---> 2 years at HBS/GSW
At this point, you are 28. What do you do after this? I understand that most doors are open but let's say you are looking for money. Is it PE?
If you aren't looking just for the money but also don't want to start your business, what can you do that is prestigious but still earn that 200k+?
