I'm a first year associate at a tier 2 consulting firm looking to lateral careers after business school. My ultimate goal is to go to HBS or SGSB and I am curious about my chances. I graduated summa cum laude (GPA ~3.8) with a humanities degree from a target (HYP) and have afor additional context. In terms of career post MBA, I want to pursue corporate strategy or possibly my own startup, but that could easily change.
consultants have a huge pipeline into HSB and SGSB, which my consulting firm does not possess (think OW/ /S&/LEK), but does my background give me a shot? I would not be sponsored either as I do not plan to return to the firm after my MBA.
