I am an incoming freshman who is going to UC Berkeley. I want to work at a top consulting firm in SF (Bain,, Mck) after I graduate. I plan to get into Haas and maintain a high gpa. I might decide to double major in business and economics or business and legal studies.
Secondly, during my first semester I am going to try to join some business clubs or maybe a frat if I am allowed(Delta Sigma Pi, Berkeley Consulting, Berkeley Investment Club, etc). In order to get into the clubs I need to interview and practice cases. What do people recommend using for an absolute beginner?
Also, how does the general timeline go for getting a? Can you get one after freshman year for something maybe not as competitive? Lastly, what should I aim to accomplish every year in college. I have been roaming around these forums and find them really useful, but what I am looking for is some specific advice on how a freshmen should approach consulting on the West Coast.
