can anyone shed some light on the culture of varagon and comp? I'm obviously early in my career, don't want to pigeon hole myself into direct lending. Would Varagon - M7 b school provide possible UMM PE exit??? or better off aiming for the MM IB - MM PE - b- school?

Put simply, there is no way you would be considered for post MBA Upper MM PE role if you come in with no prior buyout experience. You could def swing UMM credit, but by no means will you be competitive against all the other M7 applicants that have UMM/MF pre-mba experience and are looking to get back into the industry. LMM PE is not out of the realm of possibility though..

Do you think it's proper conduct to reach out to current analyst and associate or former analyst / associate to get some understanding on the firm? First time interviewing for a credit shop so I'm not sure if it's appropriate given that the size of the firm tend to be smaller.
